Al, I guess I'm still a little confused on what the proper 5.1 speaker setup is. They show on pg 115-122 of the manual how to connect zone 2, but they don't show what the rear surround speakers for the 5.1 should be connected to in a situation of Zone 2. It seems like the only options for the rear surround are what would be plugged into either Zone 2 or Zone 3 if you don't have them. The other speaker options are Front L/R, Center, Front High L/R, Front Wide L/R, Surround L/R (Zone 3), Surround Back L/R (Zone 2). So what would you use other than the Front L/R & Center for the 5.1 rear speakers? I'm guessing it's one of the Zone connections, but not sure.

Let me know if this helps clarify the connections.

So based on the way the TX-NR807 assigns speakers and active zones: for 5.1 surround in the living room you would use the "Surround left and right speakers" as shown in the diagram on page 115, these would be connected to the "SURR/Zone3 L" and "SURR/Zone3 R" terminals, this leaves the "SURR/Zone2 L" and "SURR/Zone2 R" terminals to power the back deck speakers (page 116).

Thanks. Maybe my manual is an older version or something because all I have on page 115 all I have is a huge picture of a room showing all the connections, and the only mention of surround speakers on page 116 is "Connect your Zone 2 speakers to the AV receiver’s SURR BACK/ZONE 2 L/R speaker terminals." with the below image. It never evens mentions the Surround L/R - Zone 3 connections. I appreciate the help.

No worries, here is a link to the manual I looked at: http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/...En_webver2.pdf
