purdy is right...
the SC-68 & 67 are the 1st Pioneers with an HDMI matrix switcher capability to a separate zone. To be fair, this is a new feature in 2012 for all receiver companies, Denon & Onkyo included. Only a few models can do this.
well, it may be silly but that's the way it is
Denon, Pioneer, Onkyo & Yamaha owners of anything older than the very latest new models, none of them can do true multizone HDMI.
that said, what you could do is send HDMI to another zone using your HDMI output control....output 1 to main room, output 2 to other room & select All for HDMI outputs. But they have to play the same source at the same time. If you want to play separate sources in each room, then you'll want a new receiver.
the SC-68 & 67 (don't know about the lower models) have a dedicated zone 4 HDMI output that will play independently from the main room.Edited by ss9001 - 10/16/12 at 1:51pm
