    My dad has an older Pioneer pro logic receiver. Every time a movie (either on VHS or DVD) hits a really loud noise (like a gunshot), the receiver turns itself off. Any ideas?

    Check to make sure you don't have any shorts in the speaker wires (i.e. positive and negative making contact with eachother). The same thing was happening to my parents Kenwood and that was the problem.

    Yeh. I was thinking that as well. They have a stupid cat that is always chewing on stuff. I'll give that a whirl. Seems kinda weird that it'd only happen on very LOUD noises. Maybe not--I'm not an electrical engineer.

    if the wires check out then swap the speakers. bring your pair to your dad's place for a test. perhaps the crossover or a driver has a problem. if it's still misbehaving then it's he receiver.
