Hello, What's the Model Number of the Pioneer?
What's the model number off the back of the TV?
What type of "Error" are you getting- what else does it say?

Hi Kate, first off- the "Errir FCH" message has nothing to do with how the receiver is connected to the TV- it's telling you that one of your "Front Channel Speakers" is connected poorly and there is a short circuit at the speaker wire. You will need to unplug the receiver from power, and the carefully disconnect and reconnect all Front speakers to the receiver. Make sure no bare strands of wire are touching adjacent wires at both the receiver and the speakers themselves.
