SOURCE: Zone 2
The above suggestion may be the cause of the problem. Zone 2 can only play analog, so if you have HDMI connection you cannot output to zone 2.
I resolved my own problem. This is a 7 channel system. Zone 2 needs 2 channels. In my case I bi-amped both front speakers (ran two speaker cables to each). So Zone 1 was using 7 channels, 5 speakers plus 2 added cables for fronts. Zone 2 could not work.
In set up 2 Speaker Settings, select first menu item then scroll to second option on this, change setting from bi-amp to Normal.

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)

HI pull down the flap on your amp and you will see buttons for zone 2 settings,press zone2 then level up this should work.

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.

Page 55 shows the prerequisite settings for using the surround back terminals for Zone 2.
Page 60 describes USING Zone 2 and points out that only analog sources can be used with Zone 2. Are you trying to use digital sources? Read the notes regarding REC OUT.
