So here's my dilemma i have had an ATV1 (w/firecore ATV flash) for years now and it's served me well. However, i feel it's time to 'upgrade' to a new ATV3 at some point soon, but one thing that just dawned on me was the lack of analog outputs on the new one. For my setup, i have a 7.1 Onkyo AVR (several years old now) that the ATV, blu ray, cable box etc all run through in the living room. The ATV is wired into my network receiving the media library from a Mac Mini upstairs. My main listening area is setup for 5.1 listening. I'm not using the 'surround back' speaker terminals, i am however using the 'Front B speaker' terminals to power 2 passive speakers in the kitchen allowing us to turn on/off those speakers via the A/B speaker switch on the front of the AVR. Now, in order to listen to the B channel (kitchen speakers) whether on its own or with the other channels, the input source has to be analog and not digital, (this is common amongst AVR's) which is why i run a set of analog cables out from the ATV1 to the AVR as well as from my comcast cable box so we can listen to any of the music stations in the kitchen as well, my wife does this all the time. I don't think there is a solution to this problem unless i use the 'surround back' terminals instead of the B speaker set, but this is not an option because then the kitchen speakers would be on all the time, movies included.
