Can't get zone 2 (remote speakers) to work - have no remote

I have an Onkyo TX-sv545 with no remote. I can't get the room B speakers to work. The volume on the receiver won't turn up the volume on the speakers. If I can't get the volume to turn up the speakers directly with no remote will the line out to an amp and then to the speakers power the speakers. Will one of the new logitech remotes switch the zones or Room A and Room B?

SOURCE: Onkyo Zone 2 Problem

Hi there

The only reference i could find to this in the manual is on page 55, in your hardware settings. It relates to the menu settings for remote control configuration/zone 2 activation. Do you have a user manual to help you here? Hit the link above and enter an email address and you can down load one. Good Luck, any dramas,feel free to comment back to me here and we can sort it out)

regards

SOURCE: onkyo 805 zone 2 problem

I just figured out what I was doing wrong last night. On the 806 at least, when zone 2 is not powered (receiver is set to act) there is a separate volume control 'level' that is on the receiver a couple buttons right of the zone 2 button. By default this level appeared to be set to -50db. As soon as I turned up this level sound came out of my zone two.

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: onkyo tx-sr601 bi wire with zone 2

SMCCARTY,
The idea behind bi-wiring speakers is to get the highest quality of sound by getting the sound from two separate sources doing separate jobs. Lower frequencies are harder for an amplifier to produce than higher frequencies. So it is common to give these frequencies to two different amplifiers so each can produce the highest quality of sound. By removing the low end from the top end amplifier, it provides the top end amp more headroom thus reducing the chances of clipping. Clipping can easily be heard from the tweeters destoying not only the sound but your speakers as well. It is common practice in pro and car audio to use separate amps for subbass, low, mid and high; four amps working together to their corresponding drivers (more or less depending on the system and type of audio being produced).

In your case, getting the two different sources from basically the same amp (power supply), would not accomplish the full intent of bi-wiring; it would just make more wiring for the same end result. However still a good thought on your end. Onkyo receivers are great because of their beefy power supplies. Not very many other brands have such strong power supplies. Denon's are close but not equal.

I can't get sound from my speakers. I have a Sharp Aquos 60 inch tv. Hooked up to my Onkyo TXSR608 Receiver. I can't get any sound from the speakers.


Some Onkyo receivers have support for speakers in different rooms, or zones. Make sure your speaker is not set to send the audio signal to Zone B.

I have the same two problems! "Zone 2" works, but the main amp will make a noise and then stop working. Sometimes when I change the listening modes around it will start working. Lately, though, "zone 1" has gone out altogether.

I have the Onkyo HT-S5100, the 5 speaker are set


also, you might have to search through the menu of the receiver, and set the surround back speakers to be zone 2 instead of using the 7.1 configuration that is probably default.

i think zone 2 will only play sources that are hooked up with analog connects, ie. red/white cables. try using the radio to see if it works. you might have to hook up your cable/sat box, cd player, dvd player, whatever you have that you want to listen to with both digital and analog cables to get everything to work right.
