    Hi all could do with a bit of advice on the Pioneer VSX-1016 if anyone could help, I am wanting to use this receiver for a few solutions. I will be using it for both a home cinema system and using the "bi-amp" facility for my audio use using the front left / right from my 5 cinema speakers. I want to HDMI in my PS3 and sky HD box and HDMI out to my Pioneer plasma. Apparently i am told this receiver does not support HDMI audio therefore how am i going to get full digital surround for both my sky box and blu-ray PS3 your help would be greatly appreciated. many thhanks:lease: :lease: :lease: :lease:

    I have a VSX-1016 and can confirm that HDMI is only passthrough. I have my v+ box, dvd player and HTPC connected via optical into the amp.

    You can link the HDMI inputs to an optical input

    Sorry, yes you would need two optical cables, and indeed the 1016 has 3 optical inputs:thumbsup:
