I don't hear any pause/click & I also have ARC coming from a Sony XBR 65X850A 4K.So that's not normal. Have you tried swapping hdmi cable?Hey Yardy, could you tell me if it is normal to hear a slight pause/click when adjusting the volume? I JUST hooked up my 830K an hour ago and I noticed that while watching videos that when I adjust the volume you can hear the adjustment (not just the loudness) . I'm thinking it has something to do with ARC but I'm pretty new to this A/V stuff.
By the way my other equipment is: Vizio M60-CS3 4K TV, stereo Polk Audio RTi10s.
Hi, just set up this pioneer vsx-830 with 2 klipsch reference floor speakers and 1 sub. I am primarily interested in using it for music now. I am getting absolutely no volume from the lowest (-80db) to about -50db and then I just barely hear anything. Fully cranked the sound is minimal. I must have something drastically off? I followed the simple setup and like I said, am just running a simple system...any help as to what i am overlooking? Did the auto home theatre set up screw the levels up maybe?
That is not unusual. Your channel levels are too low. Easy way to fix is to press receiver button on receiver, then hit the channel level button (chlv) beside the mute button. Use the up/down arrow keys to chose all channels. Then use right arrow key to increase volume. This can also be done from the home menu. Go into manual speaker setup sub menu.
That depends on the app you are using. You will get 5.1 surround from apps like Netflix, Amazon, Vudu etc . Most apps don't support it and will only output stereo . I don't have a Shield box.Hi Yardy, I, too, have the same TV as you. I want to run my Shield TV through this Pioneer receiver. The Shield TV outputs 4K but right now, I am getting the beautiful picture without the 5.1. I am curious - once I run the Shield through this receiver, I should be able to get 5.1 along with 4K?
Thank you for your help!
I was having trouble getting anything from my SW! After some playing around, I figured out that when the auto MCACC ran (when you initially ran the setup), it set the speakers as LARGE. If you go in and manually set those to SMALL and make the SW PLUS, you'll get your bass in high gear.Just not liking the sound from this. What I can't figure out is why my sw hardly kicks in. When I had my Onkyo, the sound was superb right off the bat. I have messed around with this and still I don't seem happy. I set it for auto and it keeps defaulting to stereo for some reason. What is going on?
Thanks Yardy for the answer. Interestingly, my manual doesn't say that or anything similar on page 43.On page 43 of manual it clearly states that "The signal input from the analog (Composite) video input of this unit will not output from HDMI OUT terminal" . So the answer is NO. There is no component or composite upconversion on this unit.You could try some kind of component to HDMI converter but they are expensive.
I had the same situation, and the same fix works fine for me. In fact I just set the front speakers to SMALL, then I can set the SW to ON - and it sounds great without even needing to set it to PLUS. I get very little sound below -50dB but that's no problem for me since I get plenty of sound when I need it.I was having trouble getting anything from my SW!

The Wii comes with a composite output, but you can buy other outputs. I had bought component output cables because it does give better quality even if it will only output 480p or 576i. As mentioned before, my 55" monitor does not have a composite input so sadly your workaround won't work for me. But I ended up buying a (thankfully cheap) Wii HDMI adaptor on Amazon, and I hope that will work when it arrives.vimesrules.
Even if this receiver upconverted composite video, it would look no better than if your monitor did it. Your monitor will convert all signals to its native resolution by default. Might even do a better job than a receiver at this price level could. Test and see is picture quality is acceptable to you.
Just run a separate RCA cable between your monitor and the composite output on the receiver. I'm assuming your monitor is 1080p. Composite will look crappy on a 1080p monitor either way. The bigger the monitor the worse it will look. Or look around for a cheap/used component/hdmi converter. I was not aware that a Wii did not have hdmi. They probably figure that kids are not too particular about their picture quality.
