Good luck!

Yeah, I was eyeing the 929 for exactly that reason, if I couldn't get this 818 to work with the audio issues, but they fixed it so fast, I'll keep it for a while. I use a seperate amp, so I didn't really need the power section. Thanks for the help!

For a while, I was using the Preouts plus a an old 4 channel amp as a faux zone. Built in amps power your main zone over digital input, then change a few settings (enable preouts, enable Height Channel or whatever speaker terminal, set to All Channel Stereo) to add 4 more speakers on the same zone. Maybe you could split the rca outputs to your amp to add another amp?

I recognize this sounds like it doesn't work for your setup for a few reasons (just like the roku 3 doesn't have analog outputs) - but, at least you have that as an option...
