    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

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.

Message states the power to zone 2 is not activated when trying to listen to zone 2 speakers. Nothing in my manual about this message. How do I activate power to zone 2 on a tx-sr601


Page 77:

"Not available in Zone 2 mode" Setting not allowed because the Zone 2 mode is turned on.

"Zone 2 is not On" Will not work because the Zone 2 has not been turned on.

TURN ZONE 2 ON.

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.

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)".

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.

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

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.
