I think I have a grasp on how zone 2 works but the question i do have is.

If I have my media center connected with digital out to the TX-NR609 for normal 7.1 and analog connection from the same source with analog connection will I be able to play zone 2 or will the 609 always default to the digital signal and over ride the analog signal?

what I am trying to achieve
play the same source at the same time in two levels of the house. I know I can connect the speakers directly to the 609 but i want to be able to provide the speakers more wattage with a secondary amp hence wanting to use zone 2 output..

I hope that is a good explanation

For the main zone, the AVR will default to the digital signal; however, as Zone 2 can only play an analog connected source, it will be free to play that analog connection to Zone 2 without any interference from the digital connection while the digital connection is playing to the main zone.

If you think your AVR is defective, refer to the Owner's manual and reset the microprocessor a few times in a row.
