Thanks for the helpful post! Its hard to understand what exactly the product manual is saying.
Could Zone 2 output both HDMI and 2 channels of audio from the same source (An HDMI input)? or is Zone 2 limited to outputting either HDMI or 2 channels of audio?
If so, would this setup work? :
1.Zone 1 HDMI output + 5.1 audio from same source( Lets say hdmi input 1)
2. Zone 2 output HDMI and 2 channels of audio from the same source(Lets say hdmi input 2)
3. Zone 3 2 channel output from separate souce ( HDMI input 3, HDRadio, Pandora, etc...)
