Multi Room / Multi zone problems

Cant adjust the volume in the second room or zone. I have the speakers functioning properly and I hear sound in both zones simultaneously, I just cant adjust the volume in zone 2. Also I switched the multi room volume to variable from fixed and i still cant adjust it. Its at an obnoxiously high volume and i cant lower it! help!

    This is encouraging: I have EXACTLY the same problem! I've had the unit for a few years and never had this, but a couple months ago it occurred and the operating instructions do not provide a clue how to adjust the volume for other rooms (Multi function). There is a brief section "Setting the multi vol. level", but nowhere is there a hint how to vary the levels (extremely high volumes in all Multi locations). One would assume from the description that "Variable" is the correct option (and, of course, I've tried all 3 options), but neither that nor the other 2 options appear to be adjustable at the receiver. For the "Variable" option it states: "The level can be adjusted freely using the buttons on the remote control unit." IT DOES NOT STATE HOW!!! Frustrating.

As you may see from my posted response to a posting that correctly ID'd the solution, the answer to your problem is found on p. 47 of the manual (regarding how to adjust the multi volume levels as stated on p. 26).

Denon 1910 Zone 2 no sound


Typically, Zone 2 is for a different program than the one you're hearing in the main listening room. You can choose any source for Zone 2 EXCEPT a digital one.

My logitech x140 speakers are very quite even with the volume on my speakers and pc turned right up i am barely able to hear the music/game etc


Go into the Volume Panel, then check whether "Wave" is all the way up - if it's not, turn it up, and the sound will become much louder. :D

Subwoofer amplifier


Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!

Trying to hook up Zone B stereo speakers in two additional rooms.


The infrared mentioned by the manual is most likely an extension possibility to use the remote control in each room, forget that part.
What you need to do is quite simpel, after connecting all speakers, you should indicate in the setup menu of each zone which speakers are connected and do as follows:
in main room select 5.1 setup, for the other zone select only the left and right front speakers.
Your EXTRA SP indicates the extra speakers for 7.1 setup and when set to zone B it recognises only 1 speaker.

So read carefully the manual how to connect Zone 2 speakers and connect that way, than carefully walk through the setup menu to setup the zone 2 correctly.

Probably the connection in the main room to the wirless transmitter. The problem is definitely between the media centre and the wireless sender as it is not effecting the main zone and is effecting both second zones. Multi pin connections can bend very easily if pushing the connection further in does not solve it you may need to replace the pins. why not call Bose tech?

Denon AVR-4802 multi-zone problem.


I had the same questions and still can't believe there isn't more information on the topic. It's crazy how much marketing Denon devotes to their Multi-Zone features yet offers very little reference materials on the actual set up. I guess most customers don't use the fearture? Here you go:

-The Multi-Zone on the Denon 4802 is analog only. If you are running digital coax or fiber you will have to run a second line that's analog (eg RCA red/white) from the source to the Denon in order for the signal to to make it to the Zone 2 speakers (regardless if it's Pre-Amp out or direct connect to the Zone 2 speakers from the multi/SB speaker outs. Regarding the Harmony question, I had the same problem with my Harmony 880 and wasn't able to find an answer after multiple searches. Luckily I figured it out when I deleted the receiver from the Logitec device list and started over. Connect the remote to your computer, launch the Logitec Harmony Remote Software, click the Devices tab, hit the Add Device, pick the device type & manufacturer from the drop down list, enter "AVR-4802" under Model and finally hit the Next button in the lower right corner of the UI. The next page solves the Harmony Zone 2 control problem. You will see a message "To use your device in additional zones/rooms, click the checkbox...." Make sure Room 2 is checked (mine was not), update the remote and you're done. The Harmony Device menu you will now contain a second receiver icon called "receiver 2." Hit "device" on the Harmony, choose "receiver 2" and you will gain control over Zone 2 including volume.

Good luck!

Hi...
Without a huge mess, I would suggest one of the multi-speaker selectors that partsexpress.com sells or a similar item.
Just put "speaker slector" in their search engine.

If youre going to 8 other rooms..you might try a couple of wireless speaker systems too. They work in stereo and ....no wires

I have a Denon 2308CI. I use the 7.1 suround. I have my sony STR DE995 to use as a second amp for zone two hook up. My goal is to watch a movie in the living room and listen to the radio or any other audio...


the mani surround room should be connected to the front speakers A, Center, sub pre-out and surround.
for the other two rooms connect them to surround/back, go into settings and in power amp assignment assign the surround back speakers to the multi room.
once this is complete with your remote in the zone2 control mode you can play your sources in zone2 and control the volume also, if you have inwall volume controls set the zone2 volume to -10 and use the room controls.
To listen to the same source in both zones you will have to select that source in both zones
