Onkyo Zone 2 problem

Cannot play the audio input from Video 2 (my television) through the remote zone (Zone 2). All other inputs; DVD, CD and AM/FM Receiver work OK. Anyone have any ideas, as the manual is a disaster of technical writing failures?

Re: Onkyo Zone 2 problem

The zone 2 will only play analog sources - so  you must hook up the output from the tv/cable/dss on it's analog (RCA Jacks) into an input on the Onkyo.  You might also have to enable this output from you tv/cable/dss.

I have 2 qustions?

my guess is that the yamaha has pre-amp outs, most yamaha stuff does, and that is the one you should be using for the main, and hooking up to the onkyo, and letting the yamaha be your zone controler, and the onkyo be your remote amp for your second zone (if your onkyo had pre-amp outs it would work how your trying to do it, but it dont) so exchange there places, and run a pre amp out to any input of your onkyo, and you'll have total volume control of your outside speakers

My Onkyo TX-SR506 plays cable and CD inputs to zone 2, but DVD won't play. Everything is connected according to the manual and I assigned zone 2 output correctly. What gives?

How are your cable and cd inputs hooked up? Analog connections? Alot of receivers cannot send an audio signal from hdmi inputs to zone 2.

Hi. Most likely the assigned input isn't correctly setup. Try this:

1. Press 'setup' on your remote control.
2. Navigate to 'Input Assign'.
3. Navigate to the correct next option (HDMI/Component/Digital) - this depends on how you have connected your DVD player up.
4. Find the name of the connection you've plugged your DVD into (physically look at the back of the receiver).
5. Select the DVD option, and press left/right until you have selected the correct input.

You may need to change to Tuner then back to DVD, but that should do it.

If you need further help, please let me know exactly how you've connected your DVD player (HDMI? component?), and the name of the physical connection you've plugged into.

Hope that helps!

I have a Onkyo TX-SR604 Receiver. I get no sound

Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

A point to keep in mind here is that Zone II will only feed through an analog source. Since the Video 1 input is using the digital (coax, optical) input that that is your most likely issue.

Thank you for using Fixya, and please let me know if I can firther assist.

Zone 2 audio output is for analog only? The only reason I bought this receiver was to be able to play my ipod on our outdoor speakers.

David is wrong. My Onkyo is the same way. The receiver will only provide a signal to zone 2 speaker outputs from analog sources. I assume this was because of concerns with digital rights management, which caused some odd decisions for a while by hardware manufacturers. Newer receivers should not have this problem.

Denon AVR-2105

If the Cd is wired digitally, it will only play through the main zone, because the Denon cannot convert down to RCA to cater for the zone 2. If you plug RCAs from Cd to Denon, Main zone will STILL play from digital, and RCA connection will allow zone 2 to play Cd from RCA input....same with dvd, Satellite Blah blah... no stress, any nasty RCA will do if you want to try before you splash out on really costly cables...perhaps you can help me...want to run AVR 2105 with 2 speakers in zone 2, manual says cant do it - only ably to surround back or biamp...dont want either, dont have stereo yet to try it out...did you have any trouble with that?

No HDMI Output

My configuration:
ZONE 1 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 1 [S-Video out] -> [S-Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [HDMI out] -> [HDMI in] Sony KDS-60A3000 rear projection TV

ZONE 2 (living room)
DishNetwork Dual Tuner DVR Tuner 2 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] ONKYO TX-SR875 [Composite Video out] -> [Composite Video in] Samsung AQUOS LCD TV

ONKYO receiver stops sending video signal to my ZONE 1 Sony TV through the HDMI connection. ZONE 2 may still receive video. (NOTE: the issue might be related to the upconverter circuitry?)

I couldn't see any video, but I could hear the Tuner 1 audio through my ONKYO. An important clue is that I couldn't see ONKYO's on-screen display menu on my TV when hitting the [Setup] button on my remote. But, I could see my TV's Sony-based menus and display options.

1. Put all ZONES in Standby mode using the remote. Hit these buttons on remote: [Receiver], then [Standby]. [Receiver], [ZONE2], then [Standby], [Receiver], [ZONE3], then [Standby]. You should NOT see any lights on the ONKYO except maybe one red led near the power button.
2. Pull the power plug out of the back of the ONKYO, and leave unplugged for 20-30 seconds. Turning off any power center it is connected to isn't enough. You MUST unplug the power from the back of the ONKYO for 20-30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the ONKYO.
4. Using the remote, set ZONE1 to a video source known to be working. If you don't see video, try leaving the power cord off for a longer period.

I know it sounds too simple to work, but that's what brought the video back for me the few times the video stopped displaying. Hope it works for you.
