and the support was lame. The best they could do was ask to ...

Summary: Bought this system and short after a year started failing, with very little use since I hardly watch TV. The video HDMI stopped working and the DVD support instructions are not in English or any other options.
Summary: This is the only reason I need to never buy another Pioneer product again. While it mostly worked for about 18 months (always had problems with HDMI synchronization which resulted in intermittent green lines flashing on the screen), it just doesn't work anymore. Pioneer support is non-existent.
Summary: This is a good over all receiver but does have room for improvement, 1st if you update the firmware via internet you will not be able to update it at all after that, unless you go through a time consuming process of resetting it to factory default, then going online via your PC or MAC and getting...
Summary: This unit is a very powerful, multi featured electronic device. It was more than I could comphrehend. I wanted it to stream internet audio(Sirius XM-Southern Gospel) to remote speakers. I use it now to power to old analog speakers in my living room.
Summary: If your looking for a solid receiver for a fair value this is the one. The multi-zone feature really allows you to enjoy your music in 2 different zones. The other feature I really like is the ability for the receiver to be controlled by an iPhone.
Summary: I had been using JVC receivers for years and felt the need to update to an HDMI, up scaling receiver with preamp outs (I run two sets of speakers for each of the 7 channels). Pioneer's VSX 1121 K seemed the way to go. Now, before you all go " But this is a review for the 1122!
Summary: I've had this for about a year. I recommend it if you want Internet access and use an Apple iPad. It took me awhile to link up internet radio stations, find Roku remote iPad control app, setup iTunes from home Windows PC and get pandora to function.
Pioneer VSX-822-K OK but with room for improvement, and there are better options in that price range

Summary: I wanted a NETWORK receiver, controllable from my iPhone and with AirPlay, to play music in my living room replacing a PIONEER VSX-D912K which still works fine, but it is from the pre-ETHERNET, pre-AIRPLAY, pre-HDMI era, and I evaluated several receivers: PIONEER VSX-822K, DENON AVR-1613, ONKYO...
