Went into the settings and turned on Speakers B.
When we watch TV or listen to music with speaker A everything is fine.
The problem is when we want to play music on the patio...The speaker B setup plays outside AND also plays inside on the center channel and surround speakers :-(
Is there a way I can make the center channel and surround channel turn off when in speaker B setup? Hope this is NOT a dumb question, but Im not sure how to get it to work.
Thanks for your time,
Change the output to 2 channel stereo or whatever Sony uses for stereo. Then change it back when you listen in your room.
That's pretty much the only solution for how you have it wired. Which actually is not a bad idea since then you get around the analog only limitation of most zone 2 implementations.
