Actually, the zone 2 for onkyo receivers are built to only react to analog sources so if a device is hooked up using digital cables, the zone 2 will not pick it up. if you want to listen to a source in zone 2, you would have to hook up a red and white RCA cable.

The 5007 has 7 amp channels, so you can set up your main zone to be 5.1 channels and zone 2 to be the remaining 2 channels. Check the manual to see which speaker terminals on the back are connected to which speakers. You will need to go into the setup menu and set the amp for 5.1 + 2 channels. Then you will need to run speaker wires to Zone 2.
I recommend using banana plugs to connect the speaker wires to the 5007. They make a much neater install and eliminate shorts between connections. Sewell Direct makes nice plugs for a very reasonable price.
you have to change the power amp assignment to zone 2, you must also have Analog audio connections to the Denon from your devices.
Try this put your remote in the zone 2 mode, select tuner in zone 2 and turn zone 2 volume up to -10
I know this is old and im sure you have it solved by now, but it might be a good idea to check the amp setting of Zone 2. Is it switched to Internal or external? I remember something strange about this amp in that when you change from using the rear surrounds and go to use them in Zone 2, it resets the amp setting or something like that. Hope it helps if you still need it.
OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.
I am sure this isn't it, but if all components are connected digitally Zone 2 won't work. It only allows analog connections, so anything attached via HDMI, etc. will not be able to be output to Zone 2.
if you have a main speaker system working properly, takea known good amp to ch2. wire the main pre amp out to amp 2 input.. turn both units on(no spkrs connected), fire it up. if the amp does not go into protect mode, turn ALL power off to the system.,connect one Spkr channel on A2, AND TURN THE VOLUME DOWN FIRS!!!!. pOWER UP THE SYSTEM AND SEE WHAT YOU GET.BE GENTLE WITH VOLUME SETTINGD! If ch 1 works, repeat procedure with ch 2 pre amp out.
Yes and no. You can get some digital signals to go to zones 2 & 3 but only PCM ones, Analogue always goes. I have a Denon DVD player connected to my 4306 with a denonlink cable. I had to connect RCA Analogue cables to the DVD input to get the sound to come out on Zone 2.
