What all input sources have you tried connecting?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The controllers are connected to one another via the RNET link...the main controller is set to 1 and the second controller is set to 2. There is only one source of input which is a DMS 3.1 connected to the main controller. All zones attached to the main controller work perfectly, the zones on the second controller come on and give me access to the inputs attached to the main controller but no sound and a eventually a bright white led illuminates inside the unit. As a test I made the second controller the main controller and the sound would come on in a zone momentarily and then the sound goes away and once again a bright white led light comes on in the controller.
