I Think the answer is yes. I have the same problem. I would like to get digital inputs out from analog conections, i.e., down conversion, but have been unable to figure out if it can and if so how.
And yet it does it via the headphone jack anyways...which is one workaround, but then you lose sound from the external speakers.
Surely there's a way for this to work. Someone must have their set top box or DVD player hooked up via hdmi or coax, and a VCR also hooked up that can record from it, no?
What I was thinking is maybe if I hook it up to the zone 2 out analog jacks, then I could maybe switch to 'zone 2' somehow? I'd try it, but I'm afraid that somehow this will cause a problem since I don't fully understand how the whole zone 2 thing works.
