Bought a receiver expecting to use two polk audio speakers in a side room, and then learned I can only run analog connections to zone 2. This will not work for me.
I do have an HDMI cable already run from my receiver to my would-be "zone 2", so I'm hoping to find a set of speakers that either take HDMI in and pass HDMI out, or that use toslink for a connection.
First question -- if I find speakers that take HDMI in and out, would the video still properly pass through? I feel like these types of speakers are not quite common. I've seen a few soundbars that achieve this, but still unsure about video-passthrough.
Other than that, just looking for a set that I could possibly combine a woofer with, and mainly one that has a remote. My whole reasoning behind setting up zone2 was to be able to use the receivers app to control the volume, so I'd like to be able to control the speakers volume from where I am.
