PRJAND615 Pyle projector

Thanks,

how is the cable box connected to the pioneer, and how is the projector connected as well?

HDMI on both

Can you tell me which port specifically is used on the back of the pioneer, from the box?
What do you see on the pioneer display currently?
Does the pioneer give sound for any other input, even radio?

Cable box HDMI to tv/sat IN on receiver. HDMI out to Pyle projector.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Display is on tv\sat. I switched to tuner and radio comes thru fine.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I think it's a setting on the projector maybe but I can't find anything and manual kinda sucks.

It's not the projector, but it may be a receiver setting,

go into the pioneer menu, under audio,

and we're looking for the Audio Out (amp assign) function, if it is set to THRU, that is the problem, change it to amp/receiver mode instead

K. One second. I'm slow. Sorry

No problem, take your time.

In the AUDIO menu it may be listed as HDMI, and set it to AMP
