Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, What exactly have you done so far, and where are you getting stuck?
Also, do you have the manual for this receiver?
Okay, if you want the speakers on a separate Zone, you do not connect them to the "B" speaker outputs you instead need to connect them to the Zone 2 outputs on the back of the receiver.
So right now you have the Patio speakers plugged into "Speaker B"?
Hang tight, pulling this unit up now. If you're saying the receiver does not have Zone 2, then you cannot set up a separate zone with it. Let me see what I find on this.
Yes it does- it's called "HD Zone"- you need to plug the speakers in here. Remove the speaker wires from "B" and plug them into HD Zone.
The B outputs will always playback what the A outputs play. The HD zone is the separate zone and then you select that zone and select the source to playback a different audio signal on the HD zone.
You then need to setup the HD zone as HD zone (instead of surround), and follow the instructions on pages 89,90 and 110 of the manual to setup and select this Zone to playback different audio input signals.
