Some good news - I tried using HDMI over Zone 2 - and it worked fine! I know that Zone 2 only has 1 HDMI out - but I'm ok with that. Is there any thing I'm missing if I just use it fully as Zone 2, and ignore the main zone 1?
It did do a factory reset if the front panel display flashed when you pressed the appropriate reset buttons and you held them for at least 4-5 seconds. Otherwise, using only the Zone 2 HDMI Out will limit you to only HDMI sources and then only from the rear panel HDMI inputs. Also, if the Zone 2 HDMI out is connected to a TV, the audio from the main zone surround speakers will be down mixed to 2CH stereo only. Have you tried the 2nd main Zone HDMI output?

I checked the 2nd main zone HDMI out - still nada.
I'm OK with only HDMI sources (that's all I have) and using rear panel inputs only. Also - I actually don't have need of separate zones - so it's only being output to one room (HT). So that being the case (before I go back and mount it on the rack) - is there anything (else) I'm missing by using Zone 2 and having it output to my HT room speakers and subs - e.g. does it use all of the same 9.2 speaker setup and Dolby True HD, DTS - HD etc decoding?
thanks for your help (could be saving me $$$$ on repairs)!!

As I said .. if you are connecting the Zone 2 HDMI output to a TV, then the signal received by the AVR will only be a 2.0 stereo signal, regardless of whether playing a BD/DVD or not. The AVR would then use DD PLII to simulate 5.1 audio from the stereo signal. Certainly not ideal, but if you want to save repair costs, the best you can do.

Definitelydon't want to limit to simulated 5.1 - I will be outputting the signal to a projector (currently BenQ W6000) - is that considered a TV for this, or will I get full 9.2?

If the PJ doesn't have speakers, then likely limited to 2CH or possibly no audio at all in the main zone.
