    I'd like exactly the same video and audio signals that I have in my Main Zone also go to the TV and speakers in my Zone 2, but I'm finding it a challenge with my Denon 4311.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Zone 2 only works with analogue inputs to the receiver. Hence anything connected via optical, coaxial or HDMi can not be played through the zone 2 speakers. Zone 2 on receivers are designed more for audio only and not audio and video.

    Many thanks - that explains why it has been challenging.

    I think I solved it this way - I use the second HDMI output for the Zone 2 TV and I added a SCART-to-Phone from my Sky+ box and used that as the source for audio for Zone 2. Seems to work!
