If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable for your socket outlet, then the fuse shall be removed and the plug cut off and disposed of safely. There is a danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.

If a new plug is to be fitted, please observe the wiring code as shown below. If in any doubt, please consult a qualified electrician.

IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Determining the speakers’ application

By connecting the left and right front speakers ( L / R ), the center speaker ( C ), the left and right surround speakers ( SL /

SR ), the left and right surround back speakers ( SBL / SBR ) (or the left and right front height speakers ( FHL / FHR )), and the subwoofer ( SW ), a surround sound system up to 7.1 channel can be enjoyed.

The 5.1 channel surround system is the most commonlyused in home theaters. To achieve the best possible surround sound, install your speakers as shown below.

Important

• VSX-826 only: Both the surround back speakers and the front height speakers can be connected at the same time.

In this case, sound will be output from either the front height speaker or the surround back speaker depending on which one was selected in the Speaker System setting (see The Speaker System setting (VSX-826 only) on page 41).

• VSX-821 only: To connect the surround back or front height speakers, an additional amplifier is required.

Connect the additional amplifier to the PRE OUT SURR

BACK/FRONT HEIGHT outputs of this unit and connect the surround back or front height speakers to the additional amplifier (see Connect the surround back or front height speakers (In case of VSX-821) on page 11).

Another way, you can use the speakers connected to the B speaker terminals to listen to stereo playback in another room. See Switching the speaker terminal on page 13 for the listening options with this setup.

• VSX-826 only: You will not be able to connect the B speakers if you connect the front height speakers in the main zone.

Further, if you use the B speakers, a

5.1 ch playback will be the maximum in the main zone.

(No sound is output from the surround back speaker.)

Some tips for improving sound quality

Where you put your speakers in the room has a big effect on the quality of the sound. The following guidelines should help you to get the best sound from your system.

• It is best to angle the speakers towards the listening position. The angle depends on the size of the room. Use less of an angle for bigger rooms.

• Refer to the chart below for placement of speakers you intend to connect.

Place the surround speakers at 120º from the center. If you, (1) use the surround back speaker, and, (2) don’t use the front height speakers, we recommend placing the surround speaker right beside you.

If you intend to connect only one surround back speakers, place it directly behind you.

If the surround speakers cannot be set directly to the side of the listening position with a 7.1-channel system, the surround effect can be enhanced by turning off the

Up Mix function (see Setting the Up Mix function on page 35).

• For the best stereo effect, place the front speakers 2 m to

3 m apart, at equal distance from the TV.

• If you’re using a center speaker, place the front speakers at a wider angle. If not, place them at a narrower angle.

• Place the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen.

Also, make sure the center speaker does not cross the line formed by the leading edge of the front left and right speakers.

VSX-821_826_SYXCN_En.book 11 ページ 2011年2月9日 水曜日 午後3時48分

Connecting your equipment

• Surround and surround back speakers should be positioned 60 cm to 90 cm higher than your ears and titled slight downward. Make sure the speakers don’t face each other. For DVD-Audio, the speakers should be more directly behind the listener than for home theater playback.

• Try not to place the surround speakers farther away from the listening position than the front and center speakers.

Doing so can weaken the surround sound effect.

• Place the left and right front height speakers at least one meter directly above the left and right front speakers.

• If you’re going to place speakers around your CRT TV, use shielded speakers or place the speakers at a sufficient distance from your CRT TV.

• The subwoofer can be placed on the floor. Ideally, the other speakers should be at about ear-level when you’re listening to them. Putting the speakers on the floor

(except the subwoofer), or mounting them very high on a wall is not recommended.

• When not connecting a subwoofer, connect speakers with low frequency reproduction capabilities to the front channel. (The subwoofer’s low frequency component is played from the front speakers, so the speakers could be damaged.)

• After connecting, be sure to conduct the Auto

MCACC (speaker environment setting) procedure.

See Automatically setting up for surround sound (MCACC) on page 24.

CAUTION

• Make sure that all speakers are securely installed. This not only improves sound quality, but also reduces the risk of damage or injury resulting from speakers being knocked over or falling in the event of external shocks such as earthquakes.

Connecting the speakers

The receiver will work with just two stereo speakers (the front speakers in the diagram) but using at least three speakers is recommended, and a complete setup is best for surround sound.

Make sure you connect the speaker on the right to the right

( R ) terminal and the speaker on the left to the left ( L ) terminal.

Also make sure the positive and negative ( + / – ) terminals on the receiver match those on the speakers.

You can use speakers with a normal impedance between 6 Ω and 16 Ω .

Important

• VSX-821 only: Note that only the front speakers are set to a value between 12

Ω

and 16

Ω

if you select SP  AB in

Switching the speaker terminal on page 13.

CAUTION

• These speaker terminals carry HAZARDOUS LIVE voltage . To prevent the risk of electric shock when connecting or disconnecting the speaker cables, disconnect the power cord before touching any uninsulated parts.

• Make sure that all the bare speaker wire is twisted together and inserted fully into the speaker terminal. If any of the bare speaker wire touches the back panel it may cause the power to cut off as a safety measure.

Connect the surround back or front height speakers (In case of VSX-826)

The Speaker System setting must be set if the above connections are performed. Select Surr.Back

if the surround back speaker is connected and Height if the front height speaker is connected (If neither the surround back speaker nor the front height speaker is connected, either setting will suffice) (see The Speaker System setting (VSX-826 only) on page 41).

• When using only one surround back speaker, connect it to the SURROUND BACK L (Single) terminals.

Connect the surround back or front height speakers (In case of VSX-821)

Connect the PRE OUT SURR BACK/FRONT HEIGHT outputs of the unit and additional amplifier to add a surround back or front height speaker.

The Pre Out setting must be set if the above connections are performed. Select SURR.BACK

if the surround back speaker is connected and HEIGHT if the front height speaker is connected (If neither the surround back speaker nor the front height speaker is connected, either setting will suffice) (see

The Pre Out Setting (VSX-821 only) on page 42).

• You can use the additional amplifier on the surround back channel pre-outs for a single speaker as well. In this case plug the amplifier into the left ( L (Single) ) terminal only.

Connecting a TV and playback components

Connecting using HDMI

If you have an HDMI or DVI (with HDCP) equipped component (Blu-ray Disc player, etc.), you can connect it to this receiver using a commercially available HDMI cable.

If the TV and playback components support the Control with

HDMI feature, the convenient Control with HDMI functions can be used (see Control with HDMI function on page 43).

• The following connection/setting is required to listen to the sound of the TV over this receiver.

If the TV does not support the HDMI Audio Return

Channel function, connect the receiver and TV with audio cables (as shown).

If the TV supports the HDMI Audio Return Channel function, the sound of the TV is input to the receiver via the HDMI terminal, so there is no need to connect an audio cable. In this case, set ARC at HDMI Setup to ON

(see HDMI Setup on page 43).

Important

• VSX-821 only:

If the receiver is connected to a TV using an HDMI cable, the on-screen display (OSD) will not be displayed. Be sure to use a standard RCA analog video cable to connect. In this case, switch the TV input to analog to see the OSD screen (for setup, etc.) on the TV.

When the Control with HDMI function is ON and the receiver is connected to a compatible TV with an HDMI cable, and you switch the input of the TV to composite or component, the input of the receiver may automatically switch to TV/SAT . If this happens, switch the receiver’s input back to the original input, or turn

OFF the Control with HDMI function (see HDMI Setup on page 43).

Connecting your equipment

Using the component video jacks

Component video should deliver superior picture quality when compared to composite video.

A further advantage (if your source and TV are both compatible) is progressive-scan video, which delivers a very stable, flicker-free picture. See the manuals that came with your TV and source component to check whether they are compatible with progressive-scan video.

• For the audio connection, refer to Connecting your TV with no HDMI input on page 17.

Important

• If you connect any source component to the receiver using a component video input, you must also have your TV connected to this receiver’s COMPONENT VIDEO MONITOR OUT jacks.

• If necessary, assign the component video inputs to the input source you’ve connected.

This only needs to be done if you didn’t connect according to the following defaults:

COMPONENT VIDEO IN 1 : DVD

COMPONENT VIDEO IN 2 : DVR/BDR

See The Input Assign menu on page 40 for more on this.

Basic Setup

Canceling the demo display

The display on the front panel shows various information

(demo displays) when the receiver is not operating.

You can turn off the demo display. For details, see The FL

Demo Mode menu on page 42.

• The demo mode is canceled automatically when the Auto

MCACC setup is performed (see below).

Automatically setting up for surround sound

(MCACC)

The Auto Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC) setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level.

After you have set up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.

CAUTION

• The test tones used in the Auto MCACC setup are output at high volume.

Important

• VSX-821 only: The OSD will not appear if you have connected using the HDMI output to your TV. Use composite connections for system setup.

• The Auto MCACC setup will overwrite any existing speaker settings you’ve made.

• Before using the Auto MCACC setup, the iPod USB input should not be selected as an input source.

• VSX-826 only: When both the surround back speaker and the front height speaker are connected, conduct Auto

MCACC setup twice: once with the Speaker System setting is in Surr.Back

and once with the Speaker System setting is in Height . (There is no need to conduct Auto

MCACC setup every time the Speaker System setting is changed.)

• VSX-821 only: If you connected either the surround back speaker or the front height speaker, make sure that the

Pre Out setting is correctly set before performing the Auto

MCACC setup (see page 42). (Here is an explanation using the OSD screen for a surround back speaker connection.)

12 cm will end up with different size settings. You can correct the setting manually using the Speaker Setting on page 38.

• The subwoofer distance setting may be farther than the actual distance from the listening position. This setting should be accurate (taking delay and room characteristics into account) and generally does not need to be changed.

Other problems when using the Auto MCACC setup

If the room environment is not optimal for the Auto MCACC setup (too much background noise, echo off the walls, obstacles blocking the speakers from the microphone) the final settings may be incorrect. Check for household appliances (air conditioner, fridge, fan, etc.), that may be affecting the environment and switch them off if necessary. If there are any instructions showing in the front panel display, please follow them.

• Some older TVs may interfere with the operation of the microphone. If this seems to be happening, switch off the

TV when doing the Auto MCACC setup.

1 Switch on your system components and receiver.

Start by switching on the playback component (for example a

DVD player), your TV and subwoofer (if you have one), then the receiver (press  RECEIVER ).

• Make sure the setup microphone is disconnected.

2 Switch the TV input to the input that connects this receiver.

For example, if you connected this receiver to the VIDEO jacks on your TV, make sure that the VIDEO input is now selected.

3 Press input function buttons to select the input function you want to play.

• The input of the receiver will switch over, and you will be able to operate other components using the remote control. To operate the receiver, first press RECEIVER on the remote control, then press the appropriate button to operate.

• The input source can also be selected by using INPUT

SELECT buttons on the remote control, or by using the front panel INPUT SELECTOR dial. In this case, the remote control won’t switch operational modes.

If you selected the proper input source and there is still no sound, select the audio input signal for playback (see

Selecting the audio input signal below).

4 Press AUTO/DIRECT to select ‘AUTO SURROUND’ and start playback of the source.

If you’re playing a Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound DVD disc, with a digital audio connection, you should hear surround sound. If you’re playing a stereo source or if the connection is an analog audio connection, you will only hear sound from the front left/right speakers in the default listening mode.

It is possible to check on the front panel display whether or not surround sound playback is being performed properly.

When using a surround back speaker, 2 D+PLIIx is displayed when playing Dolby Digital 5.1-channel signals, and DTS+NEO:6 is displayed when playing DTS 5.1-channel signals.

When not using a surround back speaker, 2 D is displayed when playing Dolby Digital signals.

If the display does not correspond to the input signal and listening mode, check the connections and settings.

Note

• You may need to check the digital audio output settings on your DVD player or digital satellite receiver. It should be set to output Dolby Digital, DTS and 88.2 kHz/96 kHz

PCM (2 channel) audio, and if there is an MPEG audio option, set this to convert the MPEG audio to PCM.

• Depending on your DVD player or source discs, you may only get digital 2 channel stereo and analog sound. In this case, the receiver must be set to a multichannel listening mode if you want multichannel surround sound.

5 Use MASTER VOLUME to adjust the volume level.

Turn down the volume of your TV so that all sound is coming from the speakers connected to this receiver.

Selecting the audio input signal

The audio input signal can be selected for each input source.

Once it is set, the audio input that was selected will be applied whenever you select the input source using the input function buttons.

Using this receiver, you can listen to any source in surround sound. However, the options available will depend on your speaker setup and the type of source you’re listening to.

• If the source is Dolby Digital, DTS, or Dolby Surround encoded, the proper decoding format will automatically be selected and shows in the display.

When you select STEREO ALC (Auto Level Control stereo mode), this unit equalizes playback sound levels if each sound level varies with the music source recorded in a portable audio player.

When you select STEREO , you will hear the source through just the front left and right speakers (and possibly your subwoofer depending on your speaker settings). Dolby

Digital and DTS multichannel sources are downmixed to stereo.

The following modes provide basic surround sound for stereo and multichannel sources.

Better sound using Phase Control

This receiver’s Phase Control feature uses phase correction measures to make sure your sound source arrives at the listening position in phase, preventing unwanted distortion and/or coloring of the sound.

Phase Control technology provides coherent sound reproduction through the use of phase matching for an optimal sound image at your listening position. The default setting is on and we recommend leaving Phase Control switched on for all sound sources.

 Press RECEIVER , then press PHASE to switch the P.CTL

(Phase Control) ON or OFF.

Note

• Phase matching is a very important factor in achieving proper sound reproduction. If two waveforms are ‘in phase’, they crest and trough together, resulting in increased amplitude, clarity and presence of the sound signal. If a crest of a wave meets a trough, then the sound will be ‘out of phase’ and an unreliable sound image will be produced.

• If your subwoofer has a phase control switch, set it to the plus (+) sign (or 0°). However, the effect you can actually feel when Phase Control is set to ON on this receiver depends on the type of your subwoofer. Set your subwoofer to maximize the effect. It is also recommended you try changing the orientation or the place of your subwoofer.

• Set the built-in lowpass filter switch of your subwoofer to

OFF. If this cannot be done on your subwoofer, set the cutoff frequency to a higher value.

• If the speaker distance is not properly set, you may not have a maximized Phase Control effect.

• The Phase Control mode cannot be set to ON in the following cases:

When the PURE DIRECT mode is switched on.

When the headphones are connected.

Using surround back channel processing

You can have the receiver automatically use 6.1 or 7.1 decoding for 6.1 encoded sources (for example, Dolby Digital

EX or DTS-ES), or you can choose to always use 6.1 or 7.1 decoding (for example, with 5.1 encoded material). With 5.1 encoded sources, a surround back channel will be generated, but the material may sound better in the 5.1 format for which it was originally encoded (in which case, you can simply switch surround back channel processing off).

• With a 7.1-channel surround system, audio signals that have undergone matrix decoding processing through surround back channel processing to which the Up Mix function is added are output from the surround back speakers.

 Press RECEIVER , then press SB CH repeatedly to cycle the surround back channel options.

Each press cycles through the options as follows:

• SB ON – Matrix decoding processing for generating the surround back component from the surround component is turned on.

• SB AUTO – Matrix decoding processing for generating the surround back component from the surround component is switched automatically. Matrix decoding processing is only performed when surround back channel signals are detected in the input signals.

• SB OFF – Matrix decoding processing for generating the surround back component from the surround component is turned off.

Setting the Up Mix function

In a 7.1-channel surround system with surround speakers placed directly at the sides of the listening position, the surround sound of 5.1-channel sources is heard from the side. The Up Mix function mixes the sound of the surround speakers with the surround back speakers so that the surround sound is heard from diagonally to the rear as it should be.

• Using the Up Mix function is effective when the speakers in the 7.1-channel surround system are set up as recommended in the example on page 10.

• Depending on the positions of the speakers and the sound source, in some cases it may not be possible to achieve good results. In this case, set the setting to OFF .

• Surr. Back – Select the number of surround back speakers you have (one, two or none). Select LARGE if your surround back speakers reproduce bass frequencies effectively. Select SMALL to send bass frequencies to the other speakers or subwoofer. If you didn’t connect surround back speakers choose NO .

VSX-821 only: You can only adjust the Surr. Back setting when Pre Out Setting is set to Surr. Back .

VSX-821 only: If you select one surround back speaker only, make sure that additional amplifier is hooked up to the PRE OUT L (Single) terminal.

VSX-826 only: When using only one surround back speaker, connect it to the SURROUND BACK L (Single) terminals.

• Subwoofer – LFE signals and bass frequencies of channels set to SMALL are output from the subwoofer when YES is selected (see notes below). Choose the PLUS setting if you want the subwoofer to output bass sound continuously or you want deeper bass (the bass frequencies that would normally come out the front and center speakers are also routed to the subwoofer). If you did not connect a subwoofer choose NO (the bass frequencies are output from other speakers).

4 When you’re finished, press RETURN.

You return to the Manual SP Setup menu.

Note

• If you select SMALL for the front speakers, the subwoofer will automatically be fixed to YES . Also, the center, surround, surround back and front height speakers can’t be set to LARGE if the front speakers are set to SMALL . In this case, all bass frequencies are sent to the subwoofer.

• If the surround speakers are set to NO , the surround back speakers will automatically be set to NO .

• If you have a subwoofer and like lots of bass, it may seem logical to select LARGE for your front speakers and PLUS for the subwoofer. This may not, however, yield the best bass results. Depending on the speaker placement of your room you may actually experience a decrease in the amount of bass due to low frequency cancellations. In this case, try changing the position or direction of speakers. If you can’t get good results, listen to the bass response with it set to PLUS and YES or the front speakers set to LARGE and SMALL alternatively and let your ears judge which sounds best. If you’re having problems, the easiest option is to route all the bass sounds to the subwoofer by selecting SMALL for the front speakers.

Crossover Network

• Default setting: 100Hz

This setting decides the cutoff between bass sounds playing back from the speakers selected as LARGE , or the subwoofer, and bass sounds playing back from those selected as

SMALL . It also decides where the cutoff will be for bass sounds in the LFE channel.

Control with HDMI function

Chapter 7:

Control with HDMI function

Synchronized operations below with a Control with HDMIcompatible Pioneer TV or Blu-ray Disc player or with a component of another make that supports the Control with

HDMI functions are possible when the component is connected to the receiver using an HDMI cable.

• Synchronized amp mode

The receiver’s volume can be set and the sound can be muted using the TV’s remote control.

• Power synchronization with TV

• Automatic switching of inputs

The receiver’s input switches over automatically when the

TV’s input is changed or a Control with HDMI-compatible component is played.

Important

• With Pioneer devices, the Control with HDMI functions are referred to as “KURO LINK”.

• You cannot use this function with components that do not support Control with HDMI.

• We only guarantee this receiver will work with Pioneer made Control with HDMI-compatible components and components of other makes that support the Control with HDMI function. However, we do not guarantee that all synchronized operations will work with components of other makes that support the Control with HDMI function.

• Use a High Speed HDMI

®

cable when you want to use the

Control with HDMI function. The Control with HDMI function may not work properly if a different type of HDMI cable is used.

• For details about concrete operations, settings, etc., refer to also the operating instructions for each component.

Making Control with HDMI connections

You can use synchronized operation for a connected TV and up to four other components.

• Be sure to connect the TV’s audio cable to the audio input of this unit. When the TV and receiver are connected by

HDMI connections, if the TV supports the HDMI Audio

Return Channel function, the sound of the TV is input to the receiver via the HDMI terminal, so there is no need to connect an audio cable. In this case, set ARC at HDMI

Setup to ON (see HDMI Setup below).

For details, see Connecting using HDMI on page 16.

Important

• When connecting this system or changing connections, be sure to switch the power off and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket.

After completing all connections, connect the power cords to the wall socket.

• After this receiver is connected to an AC outlet, a 2 second to 10 second HDMI initialization process begins.

You cannot carry out any operations during initialization.

The HDMI indicator on the display unit blinks during initialization, and you can turn this receiver on once it has stopped blinking.

• To get the most out of this function, we recommend that you connect your HDMI component not to a TV but rather directly to the HDMI terminal on this receiver.

• While the receiver is equipped with four HDMI inputs, the

Control with HDMI function can only be used with up to three DVD or Blu-ray Disc players or up to three DVD or

Blu-ray Disc recorders.

HDMI Setup

You must adjust the settings of this receiver as well as the connected Control with HDMI-compatible components in order to make use of the Control with HDMI function. For more information see the operating instructions for each component.

1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.

Press  RECEIVER to switch on.

• OFF – The Control with HDMI is disabled. Synchronized operations cannot be used. When this unit’s power is turned off, audio and video of sources connected via

HDMI are not output.

6 Select the ‘ARC’ setting you want.

When a TV supporting the HDMI Audio Return Channel function is connected to the receiver, the sound of the TV can be input via the HDMI terminal.

• ON – The TV’s sound is input via the HDMI terminal. This can only be selected when Control is set to ON .

• OFF – The TV’s sound is input from the audio input terminals other than HDMI inputs.

7 When you’re finished, press RETURN.

You return to the System Setup menu.

Before using synchronization

Once you have finished all connections and settings, you must:

1 Put all components into standby mode.

2 Turn the power on for all components, with the power for the TV being turned on last.

3 Choose the HDMI input to which the TV is connected to this receiver, and see if video output from connected components displays properly on the screen or not.

4 Check whether the components connected to all HDMI inputs are properly displayed.

About synchronized operations

The Control with HDMI-compatible component connected to the receiver operates in sync as described below.

• Synchronized amp mode

From the menu screen of the Control with HDMIcompatible TV, set audio to be played through this receiver, and the receiver will switch to the synchronized amp mode.

When in the synchronized amp mode, the synchronized amp mode is canceled when the receiver’s power is turned off. To turn the synchronized amp mode back on, set audio to be played through the receiver from the TV’s menu screen, etc. This receiver will power up and switch to the synchronized amp mode.

When in the synchronized amp mode, the synchronized amp mode is canceled if an operation that produces sound from the TV is performed from the TV’s menu screen, etc.

When the synchronized amp mode is canceled, the receiver’s power turns off if you were viewing an HDMI input or a TV program on the TV.

• Power synchronization with TV

When the TV’s power is set to standby, the receiver’s power is also set to standby. (Only when the input for a component connected to the receiver by HDMI connection is selected or when watching the TV.)

• Automatic switching of inputs

The receiver’s input switches automatically when the

Control with HDMI-compatible component is played.

The receiver’s input switches automatically when the

TV’s input is switched.

The synchronized amp mode remains in effect even if the receiver’s input is switched to a component other than one connected by HDMI.

About connections with a product of a different brand that supports the Control with HDMI function

The synchronized operations below can be used when the receiver’s Control with HDMI function is connected to a TV of a brand other than Pioneer that supports the Control with

HDMI function. (Depending on the TV, however, some of the

Control with HDMI functions may not work.)

• When the TV’s power is set to standby, the receiver’s power is also set to standby. (Only when the input for a component connected to the receiver by HDMI connection is selected or when watching the TV.)

• The sound of TV programs or an external input connected to the TV can also be output from the speakers connected to the receiver. (If the TV does not support the HDMI

Audio Return Channel function, this requires connection of an optical digital cable, etc., in addition to the HDMI cable.)

The synchronized operations below can be used when the receiver’s Control with HDMI function is connected to a player or recorder of a brand other than Pioneer that supports the Control with HDMI function.

• When playback starts on the player or recorder, the receiver’s input switches to the HDMI input to which that component is connected.

See the Pioneer website for the latest information on the models of non-Pioneer brands and products that support the

Control with HDMI function.

Cautions on the Control with HDMI function

• Connect the TV and components (Blu-ray Disc player, etc.) directly to this receiver. Interrupting a direct connection with other amps or an AV converter (such as an HDMI switch) can cause operational errors.

• When the receiver’s Control is turned ON , even if the receiver’s power is in the standby mode, it is possible to output the audio and video signals from a player via HDMI to the TV without producing sound from the receiver, but only when a Control with HDMI-compatible component

(Blu-ray Disc player, etc.) and compatible TV are connected. In this case, the receiver’s power turns on and the power and HDMI indicators light.

Troubleshooting

Incorrect operations are often mistaken for trouble and malfunctions. If you think that there is something wrong with this component, check the points below. Take a look at the other components and electrical appliances being used, because sometimes the problem may lie there. If the trouble isn’t sorted out even after going through the checks below, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized independent service company to carry out repair work.

• If the unit does not operate normally due to external effects such as static electricity disconnect the power plug from the outlet and insert again to return to normal operating conditions.

General

The power does not turn on.

Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, and insert again.

Make sure there are no loose strands of speaker wire touching the rear panel. This could cause the receiver to shut off automatically.

The receiver suddenly switches off.

When the Auto Power Down function is working, the power will automatically turn off if the receiver has not operated for several hours. Check the setting for the Auto Power Down function (see The Auto Power Down menu on page 42).

After about a minute (you won’t be able to switch the unit on during this time), switch the receiver back on. If the message persists, call a Pioneer authorized independent service company.

The power suddenly turns on or off, or the input suddenly changes (When the Control with HDMI is ON).

This happens because of the synchronized operation due to the Control with HDMI function. If synchronized operations are not needed, set the Control with HDMI to OFF (see HDMI

Setup on page 43).

OVERHEAT shows in the display and the power turns off.

The temperature within the unit has exceeded the allowable value. Try moving the unit for better ventilation (see page 2).

Important information regarding the HDMI connection

There are cases where you may not be able to route HDMI signals through this receiver (this depends on the HDMI equipped component you are connecting-check with the manufacturer for HDMI compatibility information).

If you aren’t receiving HDMI signals properly through this receiver (from your component), please try the following configuration when connecting up.

Configuration A

Connect your HDMI-equipped component directly to the display using an HDMI cable. Then use the most convenient connection (digital is recommended) for sending audio to the receiver. See the operating instructions for more on audio connections. Set the display volume to minimum when using this configuration.

Note

• Depending on the component, audio output may be limited to the number of channels available from the connected display unit (for example audio output is reduced to 2 channels for a monitor with stereo audio limitations).

• If you want to switch the input source, you’ll have to switch functions on both the receiver and your display unit.

• Since the sound is muted on the display when using the

HDMI connection, you must adjust the volume on the display every time you switch input sources.

Configuration B (VSX-826 only)

Use component video cables to connect the video output of your HDMI-equipped component to the receiver’s component video input. The receiver can then convert the analog component video signal to a digital HDMI signal for transmission to the display. For this configuration, use the most convenient connection (digital is recommended) for sending audio to the receiver. See the operating instructions for more on audio connections.

Note

• The picture quality will change slightly during conversion.
