how can I control my old onkyo receiver with TX-NR709I am thinking of controlling volume, on off, functions so I can use the zone 2 on TX709 to send signal to older onkyo tx-sr600 receiver
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only... Initially, remote control codes for another receiver (even a TX-SR600) can not be entered if to be used with ZONE 2. This is specifically stipulated in p. 69 of the TX-NR709's Owner's Manual.I realize that the above reply may perhaps be not what was expected. It is unfortunately, a design feature limitation.Please post back should you still want to use the TX-SR609 as ZONE 2's amp.
Is there any way that I can use the NR709 to control the functions of SR600? Basically, I have the SR600 in another room connected to different speakers. It would be great if I cn use the IR cable to connect the both receivers. I tried the IR extenders but they are unreliable. Maybe if I spend a couple hundred dollars I might get a good one but I do not want to spend that much. Let me know if there is any possibility.ThanksMurat
By themselves, the only possible control would be the volume level; i.e. the NR709 controls the volume level that goes to its ZONE 2 L & R LINE OUT. In turn this output jacks would be connected by a pair of long RCA to RCA cable to the SR600's CD IN L & R.
