Can you be a little more specific about "no sound". Does the receiver output sound with the test...

Both airplay and Spotify treat the receiver as one "speaker" so initially it needs to hijack the main zone. After the initial hijack you just turn on zone 2/3 and select online music as the source...

There are two separate settings -- the LFE LPF only ever affects the LFE channel (.1) and so has nothing to do with the mains bass. There is no "subwoofer crossover", the actual crossovers for bass...
