I know this has been discussed many times regarding the audio delay in zone 2 when using a digital signal in the main area and an analog signal for zone 2. However, my Marantz 6006 passes digital audio to zone 2 when the signal is PCM 2 channel. Selecting different sound modes in the Marantz doesn't work but changing the DirecTV audio format from Dolby Digital to PCM allows the audio to pass to zone 2. My real question is, is there a discrete command for the remote that will switch off DD and change to PCM when zone 2 is turned on? Then, when zone 2 is powered off, I'll send a command to the receiver to re-enable DD sound. I know i can muddle through the receiver menu and do it manually, but that is tedious and has very low WAF. Sounds like it will work if only a command for the DirecTV exists.
