Also based on the TX-NR555/656 Google Cast feature when I see them putting "feature ******* coming via firmware update" in the specs it means it could take them a year.
Looks like you can do this, which is a nice feature. Check in the advanced manual page 37 under Remote Play Zone.
2. Remote Play Zone
Remote Play Zone
Default Value: Auto
When playing using AirPlay or Spotify Connect, or when using the Music
Server feature to play remotely from your PC, you can set whether to play in
the main room (where this unit is) or in a separate room (ZONE 2).
"Auto": When the main room input selector is NET, music is played in the
main room. When the separate room input selector is NET and the main
room is other than NET, then the music is played in the separate room.
"Main", "Zone2": Select when limiting the play zone to a particular room. For
example, when playing only in the separate room, select "Zone 2".
This feature may not work if something is already being played with the
same network feature.
