Has any had any success getting this receiver's Zone 2 feature to work? The manual provides no direction, but says it's available. I have it connected properly, but can't find anything in the menus to turn it on.

Make sure you have an analog RCA audio cable from the source to the receiver. Digital coaxial or optical will not work for zone 2 or zone 3. By adding an analog cable it will not affect your main zone, it will always go to digital first. Hope this helps
Test an audio source like "DVD" connected to the "Direct" input with left,center,right,rear,andsub input. put the receiver in "Direct mode" if you get audio, the main DSP chip is bad, get an estimate first since it can only be verified by bench testing the unit. It's not a cheap repair 400-500 range. Most new Yamaha receiver's in the modest range run 500-800- new. Hope this helps
The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately. Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere. If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube. Cheers BJ
i just got the same receiver like few days ago im still leaning it too,it is a very nice receiver though. here is some settings to help you.
check this to make sure zone 2 is showing in the menu,
menu,basic setup, speaker set,extra should show zone 2 it might show zone b...presence...or none needs set on zone 2 hit the left a-e/cat button it is weird the right doesnt circle all around? i had to call crutchfield tech for that one(GREAT COMPANY!)so that is for the setting to make sure zone 2 is set up now some to adjust the volume.
menu, manual,options,zone 2 set. here you can set 2 features
max volume( the loudest it will play) inti vol(the volume that it will play at when it is turned on) the yamaha has alot of quirks to it but has a very nice sound. for second zone features and a easier receiver to set up i have onkyo and they are very easy to set up zone 2 olume and everything on the front panel. hope you dont have to try to program a universal remote to work it seems yamaha uses discrete codes that are impossible to find i tried one universal and can only get very basic features to work.
hope this helps you out,
give me more details of trouble... let me give you advise if it can be done. 800 does not have industry standard parts mostly by yamaha only or made to order by yamaha. I have the same unit before, i have the manual too.
i use to work with yamaha service saudi arabia 6 years
Hey there fontdude, I will begin assuming you are running your a/v cable into your receiver and then out to the TV or Monitor. If this is the case, I suggest you run the video cable direct from DVD or VCR device to Tv/monitor. You can still run the audio through your receiver. The nature of your problem was probably related to video signal strength being weakened as it ran through your receiver. Good Luck! Let me know how it works for you.
