Under speaker set up I have Zone 2 powered on and I have tried a factory restore of the receiver but no luck.I am trying to play analogue sources.
You have Zone 2 powered, thats your problem right their, you can have zone 2 powered or not powered, if it is powered you will need to use the component connections to link to
a powered amp in zone 2. I think you just want to turn on zone 2 unpowered using the button on the front of the amp and speaker wire connections to zone 2.
My answer may be a little crude as my 616 doesnt arrive until later today, however I have been doing a lot of research into it as I want to have a zone 2 in the kitchen for iTunes match
as noted above I will use my Digital to analogue converter box to take optical out of Apple TV into DAC then phono lead to amp and I should be able to control my whole itunes collection in both
I also have a NAS network attached storage with music on that would be another way to access music in zone 2 with out a DAC as it will work in all zones.
Hope this helps. :-)
