Just bought this receiver and after lots of frustration getting it to work I've learned that Zone 2 will only play analog inputs (one available) and the tuner. OK, I'm not sure who still uses the tuner on their receiver but I certainly do not. So that is a useless "feature". And the receiver will allow me to route my DVD/CD player through the analog input and play that in Zone 2. And CDs are not so widely used these days either. I know I don't use them anymore. I play music via streaming services on my phone and send it to Air Play. Or plug the mobile device directly into the front of the receiver via USB. But neither of these sources will play in Zone 2. This pretty much makes Zone 2 useless.
My question is - is this normal? Perhaps I'm just not up to speed regarding this lack of functionality in receivers? And if it is not normal, what other brands / receivers will play a more varied type of inputs?
