I am trying to connect speakers to my receiver through Zone 2. The receiver will only accept analog audio as Zone 2 input so I will have to convert the digital output from TV2 for that to work. However I want to still be able to have music in the living room at the same time. So.......can I have both both HMDI and optical connected to the back on my TV2 at the same time and have audio output through both connections? My goal is to be able to play music both in the living room and on the outside patio and control the volume independently of one another. This is the best solution I can come up with, if anyone has a better suggestion I'm all ears. Thanks in advance.
