Hi guys.


I just bought 5.1 speekers and would like to use those one Main Zone when im watching movies on my projector.

Then i connected 2 speekers to use on Zone 2 when im watching tv.


I can only get sound out of my 5.1 speekers even when i press Zone2. No sound


I think i connected them correct? Theres not much options.


Anyone who knows how to do this.


attaching pic of how i connected them.

The way to "get around this" is to simply connect an analog (red/white) cable from each source in addition to the HDMI cable that you want to pass to Zone 2. Analog only to Zone 2 is true for at least 97% of all AVRs past or present. It was only last year with the release of the X3000 and X4000 that independent HDMI audio to Zone 2 was first introduced. On the 1911 if you set the AMP ASSIGN setting to "Front B" you can then play HDMI audio to those speakers but the volume level will be controlled by whatever volume you have the main zone FL/FR speakers set to. You also cannot use an independent source in this mode as you can when set to Zone 2.
