I did notice that the sound is now being emitted will soon have all devices connected and will give a full report.
I believe there is a work around to use the zone 2 for a trigger/s
Here is another way.
I bought an Emotiva ET3, and I am using a ‘USB to 3.5mm’ cable instead of the 3.5mm cable that came with the device to trigger my external amps.
I simply plug the new cable(USB to 3.5mm) I have into the back(or front) USB slot of my Onkyo 5008, and plug the 3.5mm end into the ET3. There is enough power coming from the USB to trigger the ET3, which triggers the selected amps I am using(which happens to be 3 separate external amps).
I’m not sure you would want to call this a work around, but it works nicely.
Maybe I should create a thread, and let everyone else who isn’t using an Onkyo 5008.
Ugh. Hopefully I can convince them to send me a replacement, even if it's a refurb, rather than service this one again.
