Thanks. I just figured out the Zone 2 trick myself and came back to post a "Nevermind". I can listen to all 4 sources through my headphones, without changing any sources, as long as REC OUT appears on the display. Weird to me that they just don't output by themselves.

I only have analog right now for this very purpose. I want to get the basics running before I hook up my digital inputs. On my Onkyo 702, it wouldn't convert digital to analog. So all my sources needed an analog input, in addition to digital. I'm hoping my 2809 will convert so I can eliminate a lot of analog inputs. We'll see. P.S. I found the info on page 57.
I will say that the 2809 has been the hardest receiver I have ever hooked up. Not very intuitive. I have downloaded Batpigs' instructions. I'll probably make a donation when I'm all done and satisfied.
