If you bypassed your Pioneer AND your TV then worked fine for PPV, then it is definitely the fault of the Pioneer unit. As my friend at the Home Theater company put it... the audio guys just don't seem to get it right no matter how expensive. They all claim to be HDCP compliant... but they just don't seem to work. A monoprice.com product like this one http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...=10110&cs_id=1011002&p_id=4066&seq=1&format=2 would allow you to use HDMI cables to connect your equipment to the switch and then one HDMI cable to the TV, The switch is remote controlled and you would have to match the switch to the number of pieces of equipment you have. How you would handle the audio would depend on your TV but obviously you can use the audio outputs from the various pieces of hardware and go directly to the Pioneer to handle the sound. All PPV is NOT 1080P... not even close, so that is not the issue. Most of PPV is still 1080i.
