I have the VSX-1015 version of this receiver (great receiver, btw), and I couldn't get the 8300HD remote working either. Turns out the version of the remote Rogers ships is the low-end AT8400 model with limited peripheral support... Long story short, I bought the "higher end" AT8550 off of e-Bay for $20 and it works like a charm. It changes volume, mutes, and powers off the receiver just fine. There is also an AT8400 Rev B model that may work since it also includes a few more Pioneer codes, but I don't know for sure about that one.
Anyway, hope that helps.
