    Apologies if this doesnt make sense but I will have a crack .
    I am looking for a new receiver for both music and movies . I am happy with just having 5.1 for the movies.
    I have 2 pairs of outdoor speakers . I would always want the outdoor speakers to be playing the same audio.

    If I buy the Yamaha RX V685 , can I hook up one pair of outdoor speakers to the surround back terminals, and the other pair to the presence terminals?

    the instruction manual here

    has differing ways to setup zone 2 depending on if you have surround back or presence speakers, but its not clear how it works if you have neither .

    If anyone had any experience with this that would be great.

    On a similar note, if I have speakers hooked up to terminals designated as zone 2 , would the zone 2 line out jacks still output the zone 2 audio so I could use that at the same time ?

    thanks
