    Pioneer SC 05 Doesn’t play DTS HD MSTR or DD True HD

    I do not have this unit, but I have noticed the same problem at a Magnolia store. While the Denon units show correct display, the Pioneer would only show the DTS. Never had the chance to really "play" with the unit, but always found that intriguing.

    Is upconverting to 1080P necessary or just a convenience?

    Please correct me if I am wrong.........but you are saying that regardless of the signal that my tv receives, it will process it as 1080P?? I would assume that to be good?

    Is upconverting to 1080P necessary or just a convenience?

    which means what in layman's terms? so is the lack of upconverting by the Pioneer a problem? Should I look for an alternative receiver that will upconvert the hdmi & component signals to 1080P?

    Is upconverting to 1080P necessary or just a convenience?

    Really interested in the Pioneer SC07 receiver, but read that it will only pass thru hdmi sources. In layman's this really a serious defect? My tv is a Samsung LN950A with Dish HD, & a blu-ray player.

    Panasonic told me to change the audio setting from bitstream to pcm to allow the player to decode instead of the receiver

    panasonic bd55 & audio sync problem

    That is the reason that I went with the 55 over the 35. I really wasn't aiming to purchase a new surrond receiver at this time.

    panasonic bd55 & audio sync problem

    I have this player connected via hdmi to my Samsung 950 tv & to my Pioneer 45 Elite receiver via digital coax cable. The audio is slightly out of sync. Would connecting via component resolve this? I don't think the Pioneer receiver has an audio delay feature. I did not have this problem when I...

    Sync Delay, Samsung 4 series LCD

    I don't think the problem is with the set. Experienced the same problems locally on ota channels. During episodes of Lost, the sync was so bad you could watch the show. Had to change to the analog version, where it was ok.

    Why can't I record the movie channels??????

    Satellite to Samsung via svideo. Samsung to tv via rf. This setup would capture the audio, but not video. If I started watching through the dvd recorder, it would record, but not with timer recording. I have since switched the connection from the satellite receiver to the Samsung to composite &...

    Why can't I record the movie channels??????

    I have a Samsung VR-325 & have tried to record a couple of movies this weekend since Dish network was offering HBO free. When I set up a timer recording, I got the sound but no picture, but when I just recorded without out setting the timer, everything was fine. Why the different results?

    As long as it is normal, that is ok. I just feared that either the stb or the receiver was going screwy.

    ota stb dolby audio problem

    I have an ota stb connected via coax to a Pioneer 45tx. Recently, I have noticed that when switching channels, the audio is present, then disappears for a second & then is back. My stb has an optical output which I haven't tried, but was wondering what might cause this problem.

    Dish Network, DirecTV or Comcast?

    I have dish & it does go out sometimes during heavy rains, but it is still better quality than the local cable company. I went with dish over direct because dish offers a sports channel package which direct does not.

    Best TV for $2500

    Like the original poster, I too am considering the switch to HD. Unfortunately, in my area, Best Buy, HH Gregg, Circuit City don't do a very good job of displaying their products. Too many sets running off the same degraded signal. I would like for some one that has an hd set that has Dish...

    Can Pioneer VSX45 detect 96khz?

    I have the dvd player connected via optical cable & via analog for sacd playback. If I am understanding you correctly, the 96khz is analog & therefore should be played basically like sacd. The receiver does have DRC & it is set to the off position.

    Can Pioneer VSX45 detect 96khz?

    Are you saying that in order to listen to the 96khz selection, I should be using the "multi channel in" function? The receiver also has a "hi-bit sampling" function. Should that be chosen also? I don't know the answer to your questions. When I select the 96khz portion, I can hear it, but it...

    Can Pioneer VSX45 detect 96khz?

    Just playing around with Dr Chesky's 5.1 surrond dvd this weekend & can't get the receiver to play the 96khz selection. Is this unit capable of detecting this? I also have the Pioneer 45A dvd player. Is there just a setting that needs to be changed?
