Default HD-A2 Video Issue through HDMI

UGH, my Pioneer Elite reciever doesn't like to pass through my video signal on my HDMI cable, but if I hook up the player right to the TV, no problem. The A1 never gave me that issue. What am I to do? I have to now use the audio out of the Digital/Co-ax and nix the HDMI audio. EEEK!

Which model Pioneer Elite are you using? Did you recently purchase it? I have been seriously considering getting one of these receivers, but obviously this post scares me. Any fixes yet?

One of my coworkers is having the exact same problem...haven't figured out a fix yet. I believe he has the VSX72.

Wait!! There's digital coax on the back of the HD-A2? I'm having to plug in the optical every time I use something different (A2, 360, PS3) b/c my reciever only has 1 optical (but 2 coax).

My HD A2 only has optical, no digital coax.

Hopefully this helps guys........I have the one in bold but haven't had issues with picture.....just sound. Sometimes the sound will only be coming from the right front speaker......very odd!




Free Firmware Upgrade for Certain 2005 and 2006 Pioneer Home A/V Receivers

We would like to inform you of the availability of a free firmware upgrade to address a potential service issue with the following Pioneer home A/V receivers:


VSX-72TXV VSX-82TXS
VSX-74TXVi VSX-84TXSi
VSX-81TXV VSX-9110TXV-K



Pioneer has become aware that in some circumstances the above-listed receivers may experience certain audio and/or video symptoms related to the use of an HDMI port on the receiver. The symptoms include (1) picture quality issues (dark screen image, no video image, white screen and/or intermittent picture) when the input signal to the receiver is connected through an analog port (component, S-Video, composite) and the output signal from the receiver is connected though an HDMI port, or (2) low subwoofer speaker sound level when the input signal to the receiver is connected through an HDMI port. Importantly, this potential service issue does not pose any health or safety risk.

If you have an affected home A/V receiver and you are experiencing a service issue as described above, please contact Pioneer Customer Service toll free at 800-421-1404 to arrange for a free firmware upgrade. Pioneer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time).

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this potential service issue may cause you, and we thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Pioneer.

Sincerely,

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.
