Hello AV experts,

I have an Onkyo TX-NR609 A/V receiver. I can't get my DVD player (Pioneer HTZ-424DVD) to work on zone 2. I am using RCA (Red and white) cables for my connection. (Line out of my receiver and line in over my DVD player.)

Just followed this manual: https://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/manuals/pdf/tx-nr609_manual_e.pdf

Take note, I didn't hook up the video output on my DVD player since I'll just use it as an "amplifier" for my speakers which are connected to it, so I don't need a display.

What I am trying to accomplish here, is to get the speakers connected to the dvd player to play the same audio on PC, GAME and CBL/SAT channels from the receiver using zone 2. Is this even possible with my receiver?

Another note: PC, GAME and CBL/SAT channels are all connected via HDMI cables.

To see the configurations and settings I did, kindly refer to the images below:

I hope you guys can assist me regarding this matter.

Thanks in advance!

Best,

It’s not going to work. The Onkyo’s Zone 2 outputs only offer signals from analog source, not digital (HDMI, optical or coax). See the “Notes” on p. 61 of your manual.

If your DVD player has analog outputs, you can connect those to the analog DVD input on the receiver, and then it'll work.
