also, you might have to search through the menu of the receiver, and set the surround back speakers to be zone 2 instead of using the 7.1 configuration that is probably default.
i think zone 2 will only play sources that are hooked up with analog connects, ie. red/white cables. try using the radio to see if it works. you might have to hook up your cable/sat box, cd player, dvd player, whatever you have that you want to listen to with both digital and analog cables to get everything to work right.
zone 2 will only work with analog sources so if your dvd, cable and other devices are connected via HDMI, that alone won't work. What you need to do is hook up RCA (red and white) cables from the dvd player to dvd in of the receiver and same thing for your satellite box (and other sources.) no need to change any setting on the receiver. This way, the HDMI will take care of your main room speakers and the RCA will feed your zone 2 speakers.
there are 2 ports for sub woofer, try using the other sub port.. I dont have to use zone 2, and not sure it even has a zone 2 sub port.... I use zone 2 for a cd player and speakers on the deck.. no sub woofer
actually, the zone 2 for onkyo receivers are built to only react to analog sources so if a device is hooked up using digital cables, the zone 2 will not pick it up. if you want to listen to a source in zone 2, you would have to hook up a red and white RCA cable.
Make sure your receiver is hooked up to proper AM and FM antennae. Try switching to AM, scan stations. If you hear AM static and/or weak signals the problem could be antennas are not hooked up. FM has AFT which blocks out weak or noisey stations and you wont hear anything without ant.
The zone 2 will only play analog sources - so you must hook up the output from the tv/cable/dss on it's analog (RCA Jacks) into an input on the Onkyo. You might also have to enable this output from you tv/cable/dss.
