How to play XM Radio on zone 1 and zone 2 in sync

When I play my XM Radio, sometimes I like to play zones 1 and 2 at the same time (indoors/outdoors). The problem is there is a delay of 1/2 second or so between the two. How do I get then to play in sync?

Examine the operator's manual for the page explaining the video delay adjustment. Also examine the speaker wire line ends for proper shielding, continunity and polarity placement.

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.

I recently moved and just got my outdoor speakers hooked up. When I turn on Zone 2, I get sound from my Ipod, but when I set Zone 2 to have music play from my satellite box, I get nothing. The music will...

If your satellite box is connected using a digital cable to the 601 receiver you won't get any sound through zone 2.Zone 2 can process only analogue sound ( inputs ).

We wired our new home to have outdoor speakers and also speakers to our pool room. Before putting the receiver back into place after wiring the back, we quickly touched a speaker's wires to the wires...

It's not really clear if all of this is Zone 2 or not, or if you intend a second program to play in Zone 2.

If your Zone 2 is to a powered amplifier and its speakers the Zone 2 output would be FIXED (not variable from the host TX-SR705), that is, at a level that the receiving amplifier would control.

Page 99 deals with it.

Having just passive speakers in Zone 2 requires you to set Zone 2 to "ACT(ive)".

Denon AVR-2309C1 will not play sound through

Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot

Yamaha rx v1800 receiever will only play tuner on zone 2 speakers

Solution on page 111 of the owner's manual:

"Connect the source component to the analog audio input jacks of this unit to play back the source in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
This unit does not output the audio signals input at the DIGITAL INPUT and HDMI jacks to the ZONE OUT jacks."

Basically you cannot use an HDMI input if you want to play in Zone 2 or 3. A simple solution is to add an extra audio cable from your PS3 audio output jack to an analog audio input jack on the receiver.

NO sound on Zone 2

Did you use the same terminals or two different ones to make the connections?

2 zone setup

Consult the user manual. If you don't have one, it can be downloaded free at Denon's website. Two of the speaker oututs serve multiple functions. Hookup and setup need to be checked. What you want to do is possible as long as you're only using a 5.1 setup indoors.
