I'm really enjoying my RZ50. The one thing that's bothering me about it over the Denon it replaced is that the TV can't sync without turning it on and off a couple times. With the Denon it always just worked.

That AVR is a beast, CEC issues aren't uncommon at all with TV to AVR audio and or video. Especially with older 4K TVs. This is the first time that I haven't had a CEC issues with a 4K tv to AVR. But my 4K TV is new 2021 model also so maybe they worked out some bug's? Hopefully it'll continue in my use with no CEC issues.

If I turn on the TV first, wait a moment then turn on the AVR it's fine. Just can't do it the other way around.

I had a issues with CEC, where only watching over the air live tv I would get a buzzing sound from my speakers when I would change channels. Thought it was a amp issue in the AVR. It only did that on that source. As soon as I would change the channel it went away, watching awhile change channels and buzzing back again. Went into the tv audio settings did a hard reset and buzzing never happened again. Now was it a CEC issue, I'd say it was. But who really knows the one's who designed that technology probably don't even know.

There is a CEC setting each for TV and AVR. Did you recheck?? What remote are you using? Is the remote sync'd for both devices??? There must be some other settings?

There are some subjective reviews on YouTube but not a lot out there from regular users. All the reviews are subjective nothing with actual measurements yet

I have the Pioneer VSX-LX505. It is basically the same as the RZ-50. The RZ-50 has the THX stuff, and the LX505 has a couple of features that the RZ doesn't. I have had the unit for almost 2 months now. So far, I think the Dirac has made a huge difference in my system. My surround field is better than it has ever been. Dialect is clearer to me, I can listen at lower levels and still hear what people are saying. I am hearing things in movies, that I never heard before. I had a Marantz SR6013 that stopped working before this. It is in for repairs. Always had HDMI issues with the Marantz. Most of the time when I turned on Apple TV I would get an 8" white flashing bar on the bottom of my tv. Never even used CEC with the Marantz. I have CEC turned on now, and no issues with the Apple TV connecting. CEC seems to work great most of the time. Sometimes though, it will also turn on my Pioneer UDP 4k Blu-ray player. Only happens every once in a while. The web interface is really helpful. You can even see the temp the unit is running at. It also shows if the fan is running, and I have never seen the fan come on at all. I do not have a tv capable of doing the HDMI 2.1 stuff yet. Most of the people that I have seen online that do, say that it does work well. I also do not use the amps in the unit. I have an XPA-5 that runs my main speakers. I have not had any issues using the preouts to it. This unit has been one of the best upgrades that I have done to my system in a long time. Hope this helps to put some of the questions to rest.
