Will the second zone selection and volume/mute be exposed?

I wasn't too sure about the second zone thing at the time I did the driver, and didn't understand for sure if this thing even has a second zone, so I didn't add any support for that. So I guess it just provides line level outputs for a second zone that would be separately amplified or something?

The way I was reading last night was that some of the surround speakers could be reassigned as a second zone for something like your back patio. Does anyone know if the second zone can have a separate source?

pg 41 of the SR5005 manual states that playback of zone 2 can be synced with the main zone or a separate source. Playback can be accomplished either by the line level outputs or pre-outs. It would take up the surround backs. I haven't used mine for zone 2 as I use all 7 channels for my HT. HTH

You are right. One thing to note though is that it will only play analogue sources through zone two so no converting hdmi audio to line level in zone two.

Dean, if you think that the zone two stuff can be implemented in the next few weeks I am going to order this tonight.

I'm sure I can do that. Don't know if it actually works until I try it (from a control standpoint I mean), but I can certainly do it.

Sounds good. There were commands in the serial control document I was looking at last night so it shouldn't be to hard to implement.

OK, I just added zone 2 support, so that'll be there in the next drop. Because the second zone doesn't have the Tuner source selection, only Tuner AM or Tuner FM, I removed the generic one from the sources list, so that they could be the same. Hopefully this isn't an issue.

As usual, I got confused and I thought it wasn't sending out Z2 volume automatically. But I eventually figured out that you have to press the Zone Select button before you use the volume knob, even if it's on Zone 2, so I wasn't actually changing the Z2 volume. But, it does send out asyncs for the same fields as Z1 is currently supporting, so the same speed of updates should be there.

Is the latest version available as a driver pack? I am not looking to upgrade if I don't have to.
