Thanks - so if I need video I would just play to Apple TV HDMI out to AVR in instead? That would put the video to the TV and the audio to external speakers?


I don't really want to use the TV speakers at all...

Set the HDMI Audio (Zone 2) setting to "PCM" if using external speakers and ensure the AMP ASSIGN = 5.1 + Zone 2.

Thanks. So, the kids could be in the new room watching tv, listening on some bookshelf speakers, etc. and I could be watching tv in my main room like normal. All I'd do is run the hdmi from main room to new room and 2 pair of speaker wires. Connect them to Surround Back and do the settings you mentioned???

I'm just a little confused on exactly how this would work. How do they turn on/off the x3000? Or do you literally have to turn it on in the main room and then go to the new room and turn on the tv and then you have sound?
Sorry for the questions.

On the X3000, Zone 2 would have to be turned ON and a source selected. This can be done either in the main zone room using the stock remote control or on the X3000 front panel or in the Zone 2 room using a smart phone/tablet remote app.

I just ponied up for an x4000. I'm coming from a Yamaha rx-v375. I can't wait! Do most of you use this guide for Audyssey? I was only dealing with one position with YPAO on my 375.

I have a question about the 12V trigger. On Page 52 of the manual it says,

Quote:
• If the permissible trigger input level for the connected device is larger than 12 V
DC/150 mA, or has shorted, the TRIGGER OUT jack cannot be used. In this case,
turn off the power to the unit, and disconnect it.
Does that mean if I have a device that will accept voltages between 5-20 volts such as the Emotiva XPA-5 as noted below,

Quote:
When a trigger cable is connected to the Trigger Input (on the rear panel), and a trigger signal is
received (between 5-20 V - AC or DC), the XPA-5 will switch from Standby to On; when the trigger
signal ceases, the XPA-5 will return to Off.
The trigger is typically connected to the preamp or pre/pro that provides a signal source for the
XPA-5, and set to turn the XPA-5 on when the preamp or pre/pro is turned on.
that the X4000 will not trigger on the XPA-5, because the voltage range is higher(larger) than 12 V?

I ask for clarification as when I connect a monaural cable between the Trigger 1 Out on the X4000 to the Trigger Input on the XPA-5 it does not activate the XPA-5 when the X4000 is turned On from Standby.

On my previous 3806 this connection worked perfectly, albeit it was with Parasound amplifiers and not the Emotiva. Has something changed in the newer model Denons?

Thanks
