    I have been looking at the possibility of getting one of the Pioneer recievers for my system. I guess I should give some back ground on my plans.
    Currently I have no dedicate HT, and it is my plans to spend the summer building the theature in the basement of my house. I am starting to seriously look at componets, as I need to budget things soon. I woant to eventually have everything automated, and was wondering if the pioneers have any rs-232 ports. I don't see mention of them, and was curious.
    Any sugestions, if they don't, as to what has good sound that does have the ability to be automated later?

    The VSX-49TX has an RS-232C port which according to the manual "...has the possibility on inputting and/or outputting information to/from the receiver." What did you want to do with the port?

    If I remember correctly, control systems such Crestron and Panja use rs232 connections. I would assume that is what Lance is looking for.

    Ken, thank you I honestly did not think about downloading the manual.
    Dan, you are right. I want the abbility to add a remote control system in the future. I plan on dropping wire for everything right at the start, then add the components as I build up the budget.
    So far I have committed to the plans IEEE-1394, twisted pair, dedicated circuits for lighting, control, and components, cable, S-Video, and component. Should give me room to expand.
