As stated above. You have to hook up the analog connections from your sources to the avr. The vast majority of multi-zone capable AVR's need analog connections to use the second zone

the random audio drop outs are only coming from the TV input to the receiver. The TV source is coming from an antenna in the attic. The drop outs happen on some channels a lot and not at all on others. PBS seems to be the worst. I've turned on the TV speakers and listened to the TV and receiver at the same time. The amp will cut out while the TV never does. So the audio is there, it just seems like there's a problem somewhere between the TV and amp (I've replaced this cable with no luck). Maybe the problem is in the amp. I will check the signal strength though. Maybe I can get it a little better.
I don't think I have any other sources that have a digital audio out. I'll look around.
I went through every single setting on the TV and receiver last night to see if there was anything that fixed the problem. Nothing made a difference. I also had the static pop back up while watching a blu-ray on the PS3. I turned the receiver off and then back on and it went away. All of this is really starting to be a bummer.
