Hello - I am a novice with a new Pioneer VSX-LX104. I got my 5.1 system setup correctly but need help getting speakers in other room working. Cable box,Blu-ray and tv all hdmi. I hooked up bare copper from old speakers to zone 2 post connections and get nothing. Hunted thru manual and menus and am stumped. Should this work or am I missing something.
thanks

Did you power on zone 2 separately from main zone? Are you sure your content can play in zone 2 on your avr (zones may be limited due to DRM issues, i.e. digital rights management). Do you need to tell your avr via an amp assign function how you're using it?

Zone 2 power on via front panel. Content is TuneIn local radio stream via NET input selector. havent seen a amp assign function.

Well now - yes things work but I can’t find how to control the zone two speakers volume. I have two pairs of bookshelf speakers wired in zone 2. Both zones can play from different inputs and muting the main 5.1 set let’s the zone 2 continue but volume control does not effect them. I must be missing something.

On my remotes for avrs with zones I have to have to select zone 2 mode rather than main zone to adjust volume or input for zone 2.

Hi everyone! I also have a Pioneer VSX LX104 and I am having a hard time setting it up...I am connecting it to a TV through a HDMI cable (ARC) and I have 5.1 sound in my living room., but can’t get any sound from Zone 2. I already set audio output as PCM on TV, turned on zone 2 and set the same source as the Zone 1 (TV) but can’t get any sound. Am I missing something? Thanks!

At a guess I'd say your zone 2 can't play that content because of the hdmi source. Do you have an option of an analog or optical connection from your tv to avr?

Did anyone figure this out? I’ve tried everything with zone 2, no sound. I’m trying to put those speakers on my deck. Regardless of if I hit zone 2 or not they still play from my main.

Hi. I am having the same issue. Did you ever figure this out? I’m about to hire someone but I don’t even know who
