I just purchased this HTIB, but haven't set it up yet since I'm still finishing my basement. I'm running the in-wall wiring at the moment. I ran wires for the seven speakers as well as two for another set of speakers near my tread mill/elliptical area. I just came across this:

It states I need another amp to use zone 2. All I want to do is play music or the regular audio from the tv through zone 2. I don't need to play something different than what the other speakers are playing. I don't even need the other speakers to play at the same time, though it would be nice. Does anyone have any experience with doing this? I'm new to this whole thing. Thanks.

First thing you need to do is download the manual and read it!

You don't need a seperate amp for zone 2. You can assign the receiver's surround back channel amps for zone 2. What you will need are analog audio cables from the source to the receiver for zone2. Zone 2 only handles analog connections, HDMI and optical/digital coax will not pass to zone 2.

But seriously, before you ask anymore questions download and read the manual.
