I have the tx-sr605 7.1 receiver. Front and rear speakers are plugged into zone 1 per instructions. The sub according to instructions is
plugged into zone 2. Why is this? Why do I have to have both zones on
to hear the sub - or is this how tx sr605 is suppose to work? Thanks much
There are 2 ports for sub woofer, try using the other sub port.. I dont have to use zone 2, and not sure it even has a zone 2 sub port.... I use zone 2 for a cd player and speakers on the deck.. no sub woofer

have the same model. just got it to work. but, struggling with one part. here's the scoop. 1. Plug your second zone speakers into the SURR BACK/AMP ASSIGN speaker outputs on the unit. 2. You need to "amp assign" the speakers to zone 2 by pressing AMP, MENU, select SPEAKER SETUP, AMP ASSIGN and scroll to ZONE 2 - this will force the sound to the speakers that you plugged in. 3 - Turn on Zone 2 (press Z2, press ON button on remote). Use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the input for Zone 2. I've only been successful in selecting USB and plugging my iphone in for zone 2. For some reason, I cannot get the SAT (cable box) to play in both zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time. But, I can get SAT in zone 1 and USB in zone 2. Hope that helps. Let me know if you can solve my issue...
Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal. Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)
There are the instructions as written straight from yamaha. If you need any further assistance please let me know. Thank you, Lee
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.
WHEN YOU SET ZONE 2 ON DID IT ASK YOU TO OUT PUT ZONE 2 ONLY OR MAIN + ZONE 2? IFF SO TRY SWITCHING MAIN ON AND IFF THIS DID NOT WORK MAKE SHURE SPEAKERS ARE SWITCHED ON IN MAIN MENU.
I KNOW THIS IS 2 LATE 4 YOUR NEW YEARS PARTY BUT I JUST FOUND THIS SITE 2DAY.
HOPE THIS HELPED.
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.
Hi Trapper John...you sound pretty frustrated so I'm just going to offer a single, and easiest method to achieve your goal.
Purchase a 1/4" (6.3mm) Stereo Jack to Stereo RCA Plug Cable. If you have difficulty finding this cable as I have experienced, you may purchase it from the following website by clicking on the URL below:
Once obtained, plug your Wireless Headphones into the 1/4" Jack, and insert the RCA Plugs into the Zone 2 Output on your Receiver and your dreams will be realized. Instructions and information on Zone 2 may be found on page 82 of your Owners Manual....good luck my friend.
