433HDE media box failures


Standard Member
Oooo, I'm cross. My 433HDE media box was sporadically failing to switch input automatically and was ignoring the WSS signal. Teletext also wouldn't work. I finally got the media box exchanged and three weeks later, the new one's doing the same thing. My old box was in a stack of components so I thought overheating might have caused it, but the new one's been sitting off to one side.
Has anyone else had this problem? I remember when I first reported it, someone else said they'd had the same problem. I wonder how common it is though?

There is a known problem with the early versions of the media box. If you have already had it replaced by the service company, contact Pioneer who should be able to send one of their own engineers with a replacement modified media box.

I've had my replacement for 10 months now with no problems.
