Summary: Well to summarize this experience would be a nightmare. It doesn't work properly such as lights flicking, remote doesn't interface with the receiver. Tried reprogramming the receiver and the remote, and they won't work together.
Summary: Before you think about Pioneer receivers just Google the problems and you will see many. First the manual is generous on pages otherwise is useless. The remote is the same story a lot of buttons but most are good for nothing.
Summary: Basically all HDMI inputs failed after about 3 and 1/2 months. Aside from that I think the software was a bit to glitchy as from day one there were plenty of minor annnoyances like issues with Dolby Sound, the input switching everytime you turned a device on or off, and similar issues.
Summary: I've spent hours trying to satisfactorily set up this Pioneer VSX-919AH-K to no avail. I bought all new monster cable speaker wires and ran them to each speaker, making sure of accurate polarity.
