I original placed this posting in the technical forum but it seems better suited for this sub forum


Here's my situation:


My primary home theater room sits adjacent to an outdoor area (Zone 2) where I've got another TV mounted. I've got UVerse boxes in the inside (primary uverse box) and outside area. During game day parties, we've got both TV's going and as long as two different games are being displayed, no problem. However, when everyone is watching the same game the video/audio is not in sync between the two areas. The areas are close enough together to be distracting.


I had a couple of ideas to deal with this issue but wanted to run it by the knowledgeable folks in this room:


My thought was to split the UVerse signal in the primary room and run a 2nd HDMI cable into my AV receiver for Zone 2. From the receiver run an HDMI cable to the outside TV in Zone 2 that would carry the video/audio. I estimate the distance would be 30 ft that the HDMI cable would have to run.


I'm in the market for a new AV receiver and I believe the Denon X3000 or X4000 will accommodate Zone 2 digital audio/video.


The second idea was to again split the HDMI signal but run the HDMI cable straight to the TV bypassing the AV receiver. This is not as desirable since I would be relying on the TV speakers in the outside area. Not sure it would eliminate the sync issue either.


Am I on the right track? Is the above possible? Is there a better way?


Thanks

So does the TV in zone 2 have an AVR with speakers connected to it? If it does and that AVR has HDMI inputs just split the HDMI out from the uverse box in Zone 1 and run it has an input into the AVR in zone 2, connect the outdoor TV to the AVR in zone 2,


Talk about first world problems :)

I just looked at the Denon receivers you mentioned above and they do indeed output to a Zone 2 on HDMI, so you would be all set. Just feed the Uverse output into the input on Denon and then connect the main TV to one of the primary monitor connection on the Denon and run a 2nd HDMI from the Zone 2 output on the Denon to the AVR in Zone 2 and connect the outdoor TV to the monitor output on the outdoor AVR.


I would imagine these would then be synched up pretty close, I am sure there are some variations on the decoding/.conversion rates from AVR to AVR, so there MAY still be delay in any of these solutions.


Good Luck and let us know your results?

Thanks for the reply. Sounds as if I was trying to complicate the situation by wanting to split the Uverse signal. So effectively, the Denon (x-3000 or x-4000) will transmit the same source playing in Zone 1 to Zone 2. That's what I want to happen.
