Thanks for your response Jeff. For #1, I guess I was thinking I'd like to have the audio selector on or near the bar area, then run all the audio cables from the DirecTV receivers to the switch then back to the 3312. That's a lot of cable running. You're right, an IR kit is probably the best bet there. For #2, I need to clarify the layout. This whole setup is mainly for Sundays NFL Ticket. The exercise zone is not really a room, but more of an area and will house a 65" LED. This area is viewable from the bar so essentially, 4 TV's can be viewed at one time. Would I be better off not attaching the audio from HR24-5 to the selector switch, but just run the audio from the HR24 directly to the zone 3 DRA-37? It look's like I have plenty of analog inputs on the 3312, but if I run all the audio through the 3312, I would have to change "sources" from the app for the bar speakers as opposed to using a selector switch? And the video would still go directly from the DirecTV boxes straight to the TV's? I'm trying to picture that scenario. I agree, I would like to keep the ipad on either the DirecTV or Sonos apps. I was hoping once the zones and sources were set from the denon app, I could then switch to the other apps and be done. Thanks again for your assistance. Please correct me if I am missing something or have misunderstood you in any way.
