Silly way to access OSD - only via composite!
The unit looks sleek & has a modern design.I thought connecting the receiver to all of my existing devices would be pretty straight forward, until I encountered a previously unknown feature from the owner's manual - in order for you to access the On-Screen Display (OSD), you MUST connect your TV with an old fashioned RCA analog video cable (composite video cable). So even though you're connecting the TV with HDMI, you CANNOT access OSD via HDMI - the only to access OSD is via analog video, which...

Outstanding unit for a great price. You're not going to rock the neighborhood, but you're also not going to make your next door neighbor angry by turning this up a little.

Stopped Working only 3 months after buying
I was so excited to get my new surround sound setup and when I heard it for the first time I was so happy that I watched movies all day. The feeling was short lived. I went into my room to watch TV and for some reason it wasn't working. I noticed that HDMI was flashing and I went to the manual and it turns out that it is a major problem with the unit. This unit only worked for about 3 months so I am beyond disappointed with this product and I am currently working to get this problem taken care o...

Great for about 6 months
Everything runs through my receiver and then out my HDMI to the TV for video. Without an HDMI out the surround sound receiver is absolutely useless. There's only 1 HDMI output and it's broken. I would seriously reconsider this purchase if you're reading the reviews. This is the second review with the same problem. I'm sure there are many others that didn't bother writing to warn people. I believe in the review process.

Lasted Less Than 2 Weeks
Hooked everything up. Sound was very good. Everything working properly. Last night getting ready to watch a movie on Netflix and the sound would not work. After spending 3 hours last night trying to figure it out I gave up. Woke up this morning and noticed the HDMI light blinking on the front panel. Did some internet research and found that this is a common problem with Pioneer. Some type of HDMI circuit board is likely defective. I picked this receiver because it was $50 cheaper than the Denon ...

great sound,low price
I had to write and correct the other reviewers low ratings. Totally unjustified. I had bought their $399.00 Onkyo (what a piece) and it was awful sounding so returned it for the cheaper pioneer. Your ears perk up with the great separation, full rich sound of the Pioneer. I called Pioneer to see if they'd had returns due to defects. None.( Reviews noted broken HDMI plugs, blinking HDMI lights) They probably didn't do set up correctly. I will recommend this unit to anyone. My son heard it and was ...

After getting an amazing deal on this Pioneer receiver I thought it would be a great replacement after my 18 year old Sony died. I am handicapped and have some problems twisting and moving around. The front speakers must be the hardest connection to anything I have ever tried to do or set up. Pioneer even puts a small mirror like sticker so you can try to see what you are doing. Every other set up from the front speaker, the Am and FM radio antenna, the rear surround speakers all are simple and ...
