There is also no Zone Select at all. If I add a pair of speakers to my current 5. Power off Zone 2 or any further delay is not needed. Particularly in this case - illegal streaming, torrenting, asking for remote software, etc. So, for example, the 1913 model can only utilize Option 1 above, meaning if you are running a 7ch setup in your main zone, you cannot run Zone 2 speakers! A few questions: Is plugging in headphones to the pre-out a valid test? This was great because it was the first sign I had that the 4806 was still actually processing any audio at all. Originally Posted by aleugg Thanks guys! What you can't do is have 2 different digital sources playing in the two zones. I hope the info provided is helpful.
If not it won't adjust the volume. Most can be expanded to 5. The first good sign I saw was that the receiver had some input options lit up that weren't there before, and then it clicked on. Tom Tobester, thanks for your advice. Just to be sure, this is the sort of thing that I would want to look for to do this, right? This turns off the second zone. I found out that we are able to ajust the volume only from the remote.
Has anyone got this working ok? The only thing I could come up with was that the Zones somehow had something to do with it - because I dimly recalled something about using zones and analog connections. If you are running only one set of speakers you can go directly from the receiver to the speakers with no impedance matching controls. I can play from my phone through this bluetooth link, so that works. Have Zone 2 set up for separate Room Audio and it works fine. Can somebody please help we solve this problem? This thread may be a bit old - but maybe you're still listening! The problem is, that the discrete power commands just act like this.
You have the Nuvo connected to the Zone 2 pre-outs so then do you have a 7. I'll try it out tonight to see if I can get any analog sources to play out of zone 3 pre-out. I also had the zone2 not working issue and sure enough it was due to having digital audio connections welcome to 2009! An Airport Express connected using a 3. I even reset the microprocessor, which of course then required me to redo the required menu options such as assigning the optical inputs properly. Last night I tried to hook up zone 2 to additional speakers inside and out. Any ideas how to set this up the right way for the sub to make noise again? Denon may have improved on this by allowing you to send a digital source that's being played on zone 1 to zone 2 at the same time. This is very unusual because I have to open a cabinet to access the equipment, but it's no big deal.
When I turn off my receiver with the remote or by pressing the bottom on the front of the receiver, I want it to turn off completely. I think it's an awful limitation of this machine and those looking to use this box for this purpose should know about it. As I suggested, I'd use a different source and maintain the optical connection as another source so that your Main room can still accesss discrete 5. It is a rock solid unit. It seems I have done some unnecessary fiddling with the setting on my Denon x4000.
The number of speakers you can use for your additional zone will be dependent on how many channels the external amplifier supports. I still suspect the system is not seeing zone 2 because I dont have surround sound speakers in the main zone and it is not firing up the surround back jacks. First make sure you have selected to power zone 2 in the setup menu. So I'll spend some time after a few cups of coffee putting it all back together again. My inquiry was more about capabilities than actual how to or problem solving.
Before, it just turned on when the first low sound came from the input and then it stayed on for a while and then went back to stand by mode if there came no more low sounds. I think it's non mention in the manual. In the set-up menu I have assigned the back surrounds to zone 2. It's like the sub was active in zone 2 or 3 but not in the main zone. Ok kinda fixed it , here is what i did. I could also not change the source so no matter what I did on the back of the remote it just carried on.
On the next level budget, I would use impedence matching volume controls in each room that had speakers and hook both rooms to zone 2. In this setup, the external amp will provide the power and with most setups volume control for the Zone 2 speakers. Upconversion only works on the video not the audio. I have received my Denon 1910 and had a good play around with it and done the auto audio setup. Q1 My first question is this. Anybody who wants to help me a bit? How are you switching them from being back speakers to being second zone speakers? My problem comes when trying to play music from an ipod via airplay. Harmony turnes on all zones, while original remote only turned off main zone.
So, the analog cable solution described above is probably still your best bet. Adjusting your power settings When switching between Activities, Harmony, by default, will automatically turn off any devices that are not associated with the newly selected Activity. Out of the same box, and optical audio out into the optical audio in. I don't have anything connected to Zone 2, and I think that represents the vast majority of users. If wished, I can also do a Live WiFi Test with my original remote. Matt, Solution 1, is Matt suggesting that you go to a more expensive or a less expensive Blu-ray player to get an analog out? Or will they just be turned off when Zone 2 is turned off? If you have done this and still get no sound, make sure you have zone 2's volume turned up out of the box default volume is all the way down.
The other method of hooking up a Zone 2 or Zone 3 application would be to use the Zone 2 or Zone 3 pre-outs on the rear panel of the receiver. When the Nuvo control pad is set to Theater, then A+B speakers on, Zone 2 Off. It does play well with the 2 speakers assigned as surround back. I am only hoping to buy two pairs of speakers for both the rooms, no budget for another amp. Those speakers are no longer back speakers and will no longer function as back speakers while you've assigned the associated amplification for powering a second zone with. Please refrain from pictures of boxes. I was wondering what you did to resolve your issue or if any one else sees what I am overlooking and can set me straight.
