Thanks...long time lurker. =)
My thoughts exactly...rep at local shop is convinced that there will be HDCP or EDID issues... On that topic though, I wonder how the zone1/zone2 hdmi matrix will handle various setups. I assume main zone could be 5.1 (or 7.1), and zone 2 could be just 2ch (using TV's speakers). Do you agree that should work? What about if one TV is 1080p and the other is 780p? Clearly there would be issues on both video and audio if both zones picked the same source...but what if each has a different one?
Aw...I get it now. For some reason I had actually expected there to be multiple AirPlay destinations...1 per zone. So on your iDevice, you would choose to send to zone 1 or zone 2...but instead it's just AirPlay as a source...so the iDevice just sends to the AVR and the zone has to pick that source. Oh well...still easily resolved with a double-connected ATV2 to create two AirPlay sources within the AVR.
