I'm trying to update the AV system that my girlfriends parents have to incorporate streaming audio from their recently updated TV (plex, netflix, amazon instant, etc). I have the main speakers working via the ARC (Samsung 2011 TV), but want to know if I can somehow send this audio signal to Zone 2 - which is connected to a pair of speakers in a separate room. The main purpose of this is so we can stream audio from Pandora or Plex to both rooms that the receiver controls. I went in and changed the ARC to AV6 from AV4, since AV6 is supposed to be an option for Zone 2, but I get no sound through that pair of speakers. Does the 673 have the ability to do this, or do I need to run a separate audio out (analog or optical) from the TV to the receiver that it can recognize as an input?
I don't mind doing it either way, but want to know if it's possible without adding more cables, since the ARC feature is so nice (and thankfully working properly) for the 5.1 setup. It's obvious that the signal is there, just wondering how to pass that on to Zone 2 speakers (not pre-outs).
