    G'day Graeme



    Thank you for your assistance. I had a copy of the manual and your advice to check out page 55 hit the mark. All sorted now but not sure how the config changed. At least now I will know how to fix if happens again.



    Thanks again

    Regards

    Grant

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
Graeme

I have 2 qustions?


my guess is that the yamaha has pre-amp outs, most yamaha stuff does, and that is the one you should be using for the main, and hooking up to the onkyo, and letting the yamaha be your zone controler, and the onkyo be your remote amp for your second zone (if your onkyo had pre-amp outs it would work how your trying to do it, but it dont) so exchange there places, and run a pre amp out to any input of your onkyo, and you'll have total volume control of your outside speakers

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.

Zone 2 stopped working. When pressing the volume button for Zone 2 , message appears : "Pwrd Z2 not Act." Do you know how to correct?


Go into Hardware Setup, find the setting for Powered Zone 2 and ACTIVATE IT. You will lose the Surround Back speaker function when you do this. Zone 2 and Surr Back are mutually exclusive.

My ONKYO TX-SR601 receive will not let me play my zone 2 speakers. I get a message saying '' Powered Zone 2 is not activated. How do I activate Zone 2? Thanks. Tom


Have just got a 607 myself, but it may apply to your model too.
Press the RECEIVER button followed by SETUP. On the TV screen a menu should appear and select SPEAKER SETUP then SPEAKER SETTINGS and set the powered Zone speakers to ACT.
SETUP will then return you to normal. Note: some other surround speakers will be switched off when ACT is on and ACT won't come on if Bi-amp is used.

Powered zone 2 is not activated onkyo txsr602


You have to make sure that you have activated zone2 in setup? It is defaulted as 7.1 Activating zone2 makes it 5.1 + 2 (make sense)
Also zone2 only outputs audio hooked up thru the analog connections

No volume in Zone 2


Get the original Yamaha remote, go to Set menu, manual setup, speaker setup, and look for "extra speaker." it needs to be set to "zone 2." This is off the top of my head, so it should be pretty accurate. Get used to doing this, though, as this amplifier assignment to zone 2 is prone to resetting itself in those Yamahas.
