    I recently had an issue with my Pioneer VSX-821-K and wound up having to do a factory reset on the unit. That fixed my problem, but I think I have another problem. I thought beforehand I had pass through audio on it, and now that's not working. Seems like there were times I could play my...

    I need to replace the Pioneer because it's toast due to a spill. I'm running Martin Logan MLT-1 5.1 Speakers and looking to spend about $250 at Newegg or another deal site. The new version, pioneer VSX-822-K didn't get that great of reviews.

     My buddy was over and the Packer game was just about to start.  My son had the remote earlier and pushed something so I couldn't get any sound (I'll figure that out later)  My buddy was trying to take a look and accidently poured some beer in the top of it.  I turned it off and unplugged for a...

    I've had this receiver for nearly and had no issues until late. Now, BluRay movies will not play in DTS-HD. They just play in standard DTS. I even did a complete reset and still the same issue. Any ideas?

    I've had the Pioneer VSX-821-K receiver for almost two years. I've been pleased with it. About two weeks ago, I noticed I have no sound coming from the rear speakers. I thought it was the movie I was playing at the time. But all others are the same way. It doesn't matter if it's from my BluRay...

    Looking to set up a small system in my bedroom, nothing fancy. The room is 12'x16'x9'. I'm looking for a no-frills receiver with just a few HDMI inputs. Not really going to use it for anything more than just movie watching in the bedroom (Apple TV) and maybe some gaming. The cheaper the better...

     I setup my speakers using the auto MCACC feature.  I can hear the tone from all the speakers during setup (tried redoing setup) but when I play back anything no sound is coming from the rear speakers.  How do I correct the problem?

    Hi All, Have the above Receiver & just got the 5.1 surround Mix DVD for Mike Oldfield's Crisis. The Dolby track sounds crisp & clear, but the DTS 96/24 sounds dull & muffled. My DVD/Blu-Ray plugs into the 821, The Amp recognises the signal automatically as DTS 96/24, so the Blu-ray must...

    I can not seem to find anything on the web regarding how to independently change the volume of my center channel, as well as my front left/right channels. I am already hard of hearing when it comes to voices and surrounding sounds at the same time, so that does not help at all. I am using a...
