Question vsx 1131 pass through stopped working


Novice Member

I'm new here, but this seems like the right place to try and solve my problem -

We just got a Pioneer VSX 1131 receiver a few weeks ago.
It's connected to the cable/sat set top box and to our ARC (Samsung) TV.

At first the pass through feature worked (almost) fine -
We turned on the cable box, the receiver and the TV and everything worked fine. When we turned off the receiver, the screen went black for a couple of second, and then all continued to work.

A few days ago, for no apparent reason, this stopped working. Now, if the receiver is not working we get no signal on the screen.

Any thoughts? Ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Have any of the products received a firmware update recently?
ARC / HDMI CEC are best left alone in my experience, if you wish to use them... I wish you good luck.

The receiver was updated just after being connected, and worked for the first time (and without problems) after that.

I've just updated the firm-ware on my VSX-1131 and now the ARC has stopped working with my Samsung TV.

Gutted :(

Anyone got a fix for this?
