Question about Yamaha RX-V1800
Attempted to connect outdoor speakers to the Zone 2/Zone 3 speaker connections utilizing the internal amplifiers (SP1 and SP2), but I'm not getting any sound output. I then attempted to connect my Yamaha RX-V995 as a second amplifier using the RX-V1800 RCA connections for Zone 2 and Zone 3 outputs; still no sound output. Have had this amplifier/receiver for several years now with no problems, and I thought adding a zone would be an easy task. Getting very frustrated! Please help!!!

Had same problem. A and B speakers are basically connected together, and there is no way to get the same volume out of each speaker. This is not a multi-source receiver like Onkyo. Zone 2 needs to go to a seperate amplifier and select teh correct source on the fornt,

Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:
"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."
Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

SOURCE: I have a the RX-V1700
Strange, if you hook the output from zone 1 to the speakers though it works, correct? You can always just have both sets of speakers connected to zone 1. It sounds like the zone 2 output may have some issues going on here. There shouldn't be anything prohibiting the other sources from playing over zone 2. Check the setup of the receiver and verify there is nothing that "disables" zone 2 for those sources, but to my knowledge (and looking at the manual here) there isn't anything like that.
