Also note, that if you set up Zone 2 as "Front B" you can then pass HDMI audio to those speakers, although limited to the same source/volume as playing in the main zone Front A speakers.
I'll have to run it the same as I did with my 889. With my new Insignia LED, the sound sucks. So anyone watching TV will have to use Main Zone in stereo mode.
Sometimes I like to listen to the radio or XM (via home dock) outside.
And then sometimes like for Football games or Races, I setup the big screen outside, and run sound outside, while kids are watching BDs.
Once in a while I'll have the bigscreen playing the same as inside. Then the same audio is'nt an issue.
If you do still end up out of warranty, then you're much better served putting the $200 towards a new unit, eg. 2112CI which would upgrade to the next higher version of Audyssey, Airplay, and networking to boot! Give AV Science or Electronics Expo a call and you can likely pick it up for maybe just over double the estimated repair cost.
Thanks for that info. I'll check them out.
