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).

Two problem don't know if they're related. I'll sometimes get the dreaded loud POP and then no sound when playing from our cable box or Ipod, I'll lose sound on the speakers in the main room but I still...


I have the same two problems! "Zone 2" works, but the main amp will make a noise and then stop working. Sometimes when I change the listening modes around it will start working. Lately, though, "zone 1" has gone out altogether.

Our 2nd zone won't work, we get the error saying check SP wires. The wires seem connected correctly. We also can't change the volume on zone 2. The Yamaha unit is working otherwise.



Hi,

U cant get an amplified out put form ur av receiver for zone 2. speaker a A and B is the same out put of frond left and right. it is not ZONE 2 output. U can get only a pre output for zone to from this receiver. U nee a separate stereo amplifier for using zone 2 .put an amplifier in the other room, connect the zone 2 pre out to it. And do the following setup in ur av receiver .

The receiver shows check speaker cable because its amplifier minimum impedance is 8 ohms . when u connect other speaker in speaker the total impedance will come under 4 ohms. Speaker b is not ZONE 2 in this amplifier


1. press the input selector button A or B to select the source component you want to setup.

2. press and hold LEARN (on remote) button about 3 seconds by using a boll pen or similar object ( SETUP and the selected component name appear alternately in the display window.)

3. press up or down arrow to select "zone2"

4. press LEARN to complete the Zone 2 setup.

5. press source select up arrow to display Zone2 in the window.

6. press an input selector button to select input source u want to listen to in the second room

7. u can control the component by using the component control area button


ok

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.

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.

We want to hook up eight speakers in eight differnet rooms (one speaker per room with individual volume control) and hook them up with yamaha RX-V1800 receiver so that we can play all the speakers in...


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
