Default Pioneer Receiver Issues with PS3

I recently bought the Pioneer VSX 920-K 7.1 home receiver. The receiver works great but I am having the same issues with it that everyone else seems to be having with it. I canít get my PS3 to display video or sound. I have read a few message boards on what the actual issue is but have been unsuccessful in resolving the issue. Many forums have been stating that I need to set either the receiverís or the PS3's video settings to Pure. I am unsure which. I am also unsure if the PS3 even has a pure setting? Others have said the PS3 is the problem and I am beginning to think that the PS3 is in fact the issue.

The reason I am thinking this is as followed. I have had my PS3 hooked up directly to a 32 inch Samsung for the past year. I moved the PS3 out to the TV room when my new receiver arrived. I plugged it into the receiver and nothing worked. I tried a few different HDMI cords and nothing worked. I then plugged the PS3 directly into my 50 inch Pioneer elite and was shocked to see that the PS3 was not outputting an image. I then plugged the PS3 directly back into my 32inch Samsung and it worked.

What am I missing? I reset all the settings on the PS3 but still nothing. I am thinking I am missing some type of video setting on my PS3 but just cant seem to figure it out.

Anyone have any advice.

Its heard that the PS3 as the bad habit of reseting herself when swapped between tv`s or A/V receivers , i also had almost the same problem with a pioneer receiver , 2 of the solutions that i found out was having 2 cables one component the other HDMI and play with my receiver and then adjust the output that i wanted also choosing between DVD=component and HDMI=3 , but the most important was to power up the receiver first then the PS3 . I hope this makes any sense to you and helps
