I've had this receiver for about 5.5 years and moved into a new house about 6 months ago where I set the receiver up to operate 2 zones so that I could operate my patio and game room speakers in a addition to my living room setup.

It has worked flawlessly up until a couple days ago the receiver just completely powers off when I switch over to room 2. Any ideas? Is the receiver just crapping out?

What is the impedance rating of the game room and patio speakers? How do you have the game room and patio speakers wired to the AVR? Parallel? Series? Speaker selector?

I believe all the speakers have 8 ohm ratings, and I have the speakers going through and Aton DLA2 selector.

Seems to be a very capable selector. Did you follow the Aton setup instructions for proper volume level setting? Also make sure the speaker wires are cleanly connected to each post at the AVR, selector and speaker (ie. no loose strands touching another post).
