I just got this receiver from amazon and I have a few questions.
Right now, I only have a speaker selector connected to the receiver as speakers (stereo ceiling speaker in 6 rooms). I haven't bought the other speakers to set up a 5.1 surround system. as of now, I will be using only the ceiling speakers for now.
I have connected my TV, bluray and dvr box to the receiver.
1. is there any way of outputting the sound to the TV speakers with the receiver on (outputting to TV speaker AND ceiling speakers)? The only way I got to work was by turning off the receiver and the sound would go through the TV speakers.
2. I could not get the speaker selector/ceiling speaker to work if I connect to the zone 2. I connected both right and left speakers (through the speaker connector) to the "surround back/zone 2" right and left outputs, but it did not work at all. I tried switching to zone 2 on the remote and did not work. when I connected the speakers to the front output R and L, it worked.
I wanted to connect to the ceiling speakers to another zone, so when I connect my 5.1 speakers I could get sound to both 5.1 and my ceiling speakers. Is there any way of doing that?
should I connect the ceiling speakers to Front Height/Wide B outputs?
Again, I don't have any s5.1 speakers as of now. I just wanted to keep it ready for the next few weeks when I connect both.
ps: I connected the speaker selector to the zone B speakers and did not work at all. Is it because I have nothing else plugged on main zone/A?
