Most media streamers attach to a preamp/processor or audio/video reciever that handle the duties of zoning. It is for this reason that the media streaming manufacturers do not build in this functionality.

JRiverr does it through software. So if you happen to have a pile of old receivers lying around and have a decent computer that you can install it on, then you can route any and all of your sound and VIDEO devices to where you want them to be.

I have 5 zones in my house, I actually have 5 receivers but I use 4. My Denon for Video in which I output to 2 different HDMI inputs in which I then run Ethernet to my theater in my basement and a plasma upstairs. Yes you can run HDMI over ethernet (http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=8122&gclid=CLOZpJSsvswCFQEmhgodshcLcA) and it works fantastically. Then I have COAX or SPDIF out of the computer routed to one reciever, I have a Presonus Audiobox as another and a Focusrite as another output. The remote isn't the prettiest but it works fantastically. Just like Sonos except WAY cheaper (since I already had everything)
