I'm using the balanced outs to feed my main system. If I use the unbalanced L/R outs to feed zone 2 will I then be able to use HDMI audio?
Is it possible to use SLB/ SRB to feed HDMI audio to Z2?
I was thinking the main outs are probably part of the digital engine.
I am not using SLB / SRB and there is a pref to make them Z2. If I use those outputs to feed the line in of my Sonos system then I could feed any HDMI source to sonos and use Z3 to distribute that audio to my whole house speaker system.
It that doesn't work, could the 2nd HDMI out of the AV7005 to a HDMI to Analog converter box back in to an unused analog input to feed Z2 / Z3?
