I have heard too many mixed messages from BB...I need some help understanding zone b with a 7.2 receiver. Someone told me you could only have 5.1 or 5.2 set up in your main room and channels 6 & 7 were for zone b. I had someone else explain you could have 7.1 or 7.2 set up in your main room with 2 more speakers set up under zone b. Do I need a separate source for zone b such as a cd player, and why? Will I be able to have music in the house and on the pack patio at the same time, same music? Your expertise is much appreciated in understanding this topic, thank you.

Depends on the AVR...but... Zone B is the "same thing" playing as Zone A...even at the same volume. Zone 2 is independent source and volume. Advantage to Zone B is it has access to all inputs, which is the disadvantage to Zone 2. As Zone 2 is analog only...except for a select few(and expensive) Denon. (Airplay models of Pioneer, Denon etc muddle that)
