pioneer vsx 917v receiver help

I have the receiver mentioned in the topic title. I am trying to get the subwoofer to come on and play when the unit is turned on but the only time it comes on is when I am watching a DVD. What is wrong?

I had it plugged into the receiver. I called pioneer and the tech guy told me it was an issue with the receiver and that I was going to have to send it in to be fixed. I took the thing back to the store and got a Yamaha RX-V661. The sub worked with the Yamaha right out of the box hooked up the same way as it was on the Pioneer. Thank you for your help.
