Hello again everyone...I need some advice and was wondering if someone else has came across this. I have Dual Independent Zone HDMI out receiver. One output goes directly to a projector and the other output goes to a second receiver which goes to a TV upstairs.

My conundrum is that I am using multiple Logitech 550 remotes and when I am done downstairs I would like to turn the receiver off...but what happens is it will shut off Zone 2 going to the second receiver while my wife is watching Desperate Housewives.

I know this receiver has a single input that can "Pass Through" if in Standby but...this won't help as my main receiver has multiple devices that "Pass Through" to the second TV.

Is there an option to shut off the audio in the MainOutput/Zone2/Zone3 in this receiver...besides the mute button smile.gif

I have found a workaround for the time being...I will just map the power off macro with mute instead of powerOff.

I now have come across a different issue...controlling two Onkyo receivers with one Harmony Remote. Does anyone have any ideas...I am stuck...Someone on the goolge machine mentioned changing the remotes channel on the receiver...but I can't find any literature how. I am open to ideas if anyone has any ideas even if it is hardware based.

As noted on p. 86 in your Owner's manual, you should be able to power off the main zone while still leaving Zones 2 and/or 3 powered on.

It appears that controlling two of the same BRAND of receiver in the same room can be COSTLY, time consuming and difficult but according to Onkyo but it can be done. I found a friend willing to trade for a Yamaha HTR-6160 for my TX-SR608, its not as good but it will do everything I need it to...thanks for following.
