SOURCE: multiple speakers on zone 2 0r 3 speaker output terminals

I wouldn't hook anything up except what Yamaha recommends to the speaker output terminals. That's pretty much asking for trouble!

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V3800 receiver zone two audio problems

To get audio with this set up also hooked up analog audio RCA cables for the audio for each piece of equipment for 2 channel out put. Zone 2 will not out put a digital signal and this receiver will not down convert a audio signals to analog if using digital audio hook-ups.

Typically, Zone 2 is for a different program than the one you're hearing in the main listening room. You can choose any source for Zone 2 EXCEPT a digital one.

SOURCE: I have a Yamaha RX V665 and I am unable to change the volume

The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following:
1. Press and release AUX
2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice
3. Type 993
4. Press and release VOL-
The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.

I cant get zone 2 to work on my yamaha rx v673. They are 2 outdoor speakers.. please help


I had a similar problem where I could not increase zone 2 volume - Page 100 in the manual notes that 'power amp assign' must be set to "7 Ch + 1 zone" before zone 2 max volume can be changed. Try that.

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.


The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

No sound from Zone 2/3 speakers


make sure that you are selecting the sp2 to be working with zone 2/3. Be careul and check volume to zone 2/3 on front panel before you activate sp2 with zone2/3.
