    Not sure if this constitutes as a home theater, but if it is in the wrong location, just point me in the right direction.

    Although the title sounds simple, the configuration is a bit more complex. I have a very specific use case I would like to accomplish. I have a Lyriq home audio system being installed in the house. It will be primarily in the common areas, as well as outside on the lanai. I also have an ethernet hookup in the top corner of the lanai (to feed a TV). The Lyriq home audio system will be fed from a global hard-wired source (3.5mm jack on the wall under the primary TV in the great room) and also from a wireless source. I can change sources via the panels on the wall. Here is the goal I am trying to accomplish:

    For parties, I want to be able to stream pandora, youtube, or any other music video streaming service (video AND audio) to the TV in the great room AND the tv on the lanai while the audio is routed to one of the sources of the Lyriq system. The idea is that people outside in the pool and people inside in the great room and kitchen areas are all enjoying the same ambient music and both TVs are playing the corresponding music videos or showing the corresponding Pandora screens in sync. I want it to be a fully functioning automated setup but I have no idea what hardware or items I would need. Ideally, I could control it with the primary TV in the great room...so I could turn it on by switching to a particular input on the TV, and that input already sends its audio to the 3.5mm jack (or to the wireless source for the Lyriq system) and then turn on Pandora or a music stream on Youtube and have it pushed to the other TV automatically. Hopefully that makes sense haha.

    I basically want to be able to just switch to this for parties, but then use my other Lyriq source for just music during the day or in the morning when getting ready for work. So the other source can be a little less complex, since it is just audio and I can just use my phone or some audio device to broadcast.

    Since you say the system is “being installed,” I would think the installation company would be able to set all this up for you?

    Basically, multi-room systems are complicated, especially when video is added to the mix. Typically requires a specialist company.

    Well not really...the house is being built right now and the Lyriq home audio system is being added as an upgrade package to the home. It is a generic system and they are literally just setting it up for the single 3.5mm and wireless sources and the speakers/control panels themselves. The sources themselves are up to me...
