Hi I have a little problem that I need help with. I have this small karaoke device that outputs the background music, microphone, and the lyrics through HDMI. I have connected this to a HDMI in port on my Pioneer SC-1527K A/V reciever. I only want the audio signal to go through to my zone 2 connections on which I have connected my L/R Behringer B215D using a RCA to XLR cable and the video to my tv. However, when I select the zone 2 on the receiver, nothing happens. For some reason when I turn on the radio on the receiver and select zone 2, it works. I am really lost in this and any advice will be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance!!

Most multi-zone AVR’s only route signals being input on their 2RCA ‘Stereo’ Inputs to the Zone B speaker terminals.


Add in a stereo connection from the Karaoke device to the AVR and select that as the Zone B Source.

The only problem is that my karaoke only has an HDMI output so I have no idea on how to split the singnal.

Use an "HDMI Audio extractor" to get the 2-channel audio out of it...


This looks like a decent, cheap one:

You will require an HDMI to 2RCA with HDMI passthru device - http://www.octavainc.com/HDMI%201x1%20Audio%20Converter.html

'I think the $40 will do my job. But thanks!!' - as with all things HDMI, EDID and HDCP – its al about interoperability/compatibility.


We sell a lot of units to folk who have tried lower cost solutions and found they won’t work in their particular setup!


You may get lucky

Does the manual say you can down convert HDMI and output it on Zone 2?

I just checked and in tiny letters is says you cant... I wish they made it more obvious... I give that $40 one a shot I guess.

'I just checked and in tiny letters is says you cant...' - pretty much the norm with most (if not all) AVR's, as is the lack of highlighting that Zone2 only works with analogue audio Inputs on any marketing blurb.


We get a lot of calls from folk running into this problem.
