Yes, it should work out that way. Just need to straighten out the power command for zone 2. The software should be treating it as a separate device and powering it on. when switching to that activity. Just be sure the zone 2 power command is set up as the power on command for zone 2 receiver in the devices section. If it's not there then yes teach it from the remote.

I have a similar setup with all media on, it seems kgveteran wants to have the ability to switch to any source in either area.
I guess you could go about it by turning everything on at once and then selecting inputs and sources thru soft keys, but it would turn on more than you need to or you would need a more extensive number of activities to have different combinations of devices and control.
