    I bought the VSX-822-K and Klipsch HD 300 speaker set. I get the HDMI stuff going fine, but have almost nothing else working on the receiver. First, I plus in my Ipod Touch 3rd gen. and it randomly work with no functions at all. I plus it in and it just start playing maybe 1 out of 10 times...

     I really want to buy my first pair of speakers, but am not very knowledgeable on the subject. I have around 2 grand to spend on speakers, and another grand or so to spend on the other components for them. (I know very little jargon when it comes to this type of stuff)   These speakers will...

     First of all take into account that I'm no expert or audiophile and my opinion should be looked as a newbie opinion.   People I used to have a pair of Yamaha speakers as front speakers in a home theater I had in my previous home and that I wasn't able to bring to this my new home. I remember...

     Hello,   I'm looking to power a pair of Polk Monitor 40 bookshelf speakers and the Polk PSW10 sub - a basic setup.  I've looked at the Pioneer 822 receiver the Sony DN840.  I'm now open to expanding my brand/model search.   I think I'm going to purchase an Apple TV to handle my Airplay...

     Hello y'all.  I recently bought a Pioneer VSX-822-k and I have Time Warner Cable with the remote Atlas OCAP URC1056.     I have successfully programmed the remote to control all of my components perfectly except for one issue.  I can't change the input on my Pioneer receiver.     I can...

     Hello,   My cable box is hooked up with an HDMI cord directly through the TV's input, but I have an optical cord hooked up from the TV output to the receiver SAT/CBL input for the TV sound (in order to listen to music through a different input while watching TV).  The problem is the quality...

     This receiver worked great for me for a few months then stopped getting sound from all inputs including radio. No sound coming out of headphones either. I tried unplugging everything and resetting config to factory settings to no avail. Any ideas?

     I have purchased a VSX-822-K receiver as a Christmas gift for my sister and I am looking for a speaker set to match with it for somewhere around $500. I am still in college so my budget is limited. She has a studio apartment 20'X20' with a 9' ceiling. This setup will be connected to a...

    Good morning I am looking at a stereo set up and would like some advice on my choices. Please keep in mind that this will be for music and movies, more to the music side. Musical tastes include Tool, Slayer, Type o Negative to Gin Blossoms Brother Cane and classic rock types Led Zepplin ...

    I recently bought the Energy Classic Speaker system so I am looking for a decent receiver to replace my 10 year Kenwood unit. I had my mind set on the Denon E300, but planned to wait until it dropped in price to around $200-250. Frys stores always run promotions on the E300 but im in the...

    After a recent TV upgrade, I've got the itch to get a new receiver. The big reason I want to upgrade is because I believe I need something with HDMI switching. I currently have a Yamaha HTR-5830 which serves its purpose in my front room, by providing half way decent quality 5.1 surround from...

    I recently purchased a Pioneer VSX-822-K with four Infinity Primus P163BK bookshelf speakers and a PC351 center. I like to listen to loud music and use the virtual surround settings to send it to all channels. I go as loud as I can without the music sounding distorted which is maybe 75-85% of...

     Hello,   Does anyone here on this thread know how I can get the audio to pass through the receiver on to the TV utilizing only HDMI?  It kinda defeats the purpose (of what I'm trying to do) to have all of the components wired directly to the receiver if the only output is through it's own...

     Hey all -   Best way to describe myself is 'a novice on a budget'.  I enjoy good sound, always wish I could afford more - that plus my wife might kill me if she sees more new goodies.   I purchased the Pioneer VSX 822 about a year ago and I am pleased; it does what I need.     I noticed...

    My Denon AV receiver bit the dust. It no longer turns on. I may open it up to see if it's a power supply malfunction, but my knowledge is limited. Unless I could find a blown cap or similar, visually, I won't be able to fix it. The current system is this: Denon DHT487-DV It's a HTIB system. I...

    Hey gang -quick question - just got the Pioneer vsx-822-k receiver and the full Andrew Jones speaker setup. I'm trying to connect the sw-8mk2 subwoofer to the receiver and I'm wondering what the best option is. Y-cable? Thanks!

     Does anyone have a preference between these two?   From what I can tell, the features and performance seem pretty comparable so it might come down to price and reliability.  But if anyone can see an important distinction on those fronts please let me know.  Right now I could purchase the...
