Hi. Not sure if this has been asked and answered before, if so my apologies.

I'm looking at getting the X3000 specifically for it's Zone 2 (HDMI switching) capabilities

My question:
I have an extra TV and separate passive stereo speakers in a second room. Would I be able to send video to the TV via the HDMI 2 out, from an HDMI input source, whilst sending audio (powered, not line level) to the stereo speakers via the Zone 2 speaker terminals, from the same HDMI input source? Also, do this whilst simultaneously handling a different HDMI input source in the main zone?

Practical Scenario: Watching (and listening to) a movie in the main zone from a Blu-Ray player (HDMI Input 1), whilst playing Xbox (HDMI Input 2) on the second TV and listening to the Xbox on the separate passive stereo speakers.

Would this at all be possible? If not, would the X4000 or maybe the X3100 be able to do it?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Technically yes this is possible (set HDMI Audio Out (Zone 2) to "PCM") although may not work with all sources as the X3000 has the same Zone 2 feature set as does the X3100W and X4000. I say technically as my DVR can be playing DD 5.1 in the main zone with stereo audio to Zone 2, but my PS3 cannot and must be set to pass only PCM 2.0 in order to also play to the Zone 2 speaker posts.

Thank you!

So if I understand correctly, you can be enjoying your DVR in main room, whilst Playing PS3 in Zone 2 (Video on TV and audio via speaker cables to Zone 2 passive stereo speakers)?

Thanks!

Correct. Zone 2 starting with the X3000 and higher models can accept a PCM 2.0 source via either HDMI, optical or coax digital.
