It should be able to come from tuner, aux, cd. Just came back from audio store (magnolia) and asked the same question. They told me none of their avr's would do that. They talked about perhaps using zone 2 and running two hdmi cables to tv. Sure that would work but my wiring is in wall and not easy. This is crazy. Doesn't anybody watch the game and listen to tunes at the same time??? Didn't know how good I had it with the onkyo tx sr 806. Any ideas????
