paradime313 posted a topic in General Home AudioHello all, I'm new to the forum and apologize in advance if this isn't the correct placement for this post. Mods, feel free to move at your discretion. The question I have is for my Dad, he has tasked me with finding a solution and I thought a forum like this might be a good place to get real world advice or insight. Anyways, he recently re-did his back patio and put two speakers out there for entertaining. His issue is that he wants to hook them up to his stereo receiver in his den and wants to be able to control them specifically. So for instance, right now he's watching TV and doesn't need the whole neighborhood hearing him. But if he's entertaining, he wants to be able to put on one of the DirecTV music channels and have that playing at the very least outside but ideally inside too through all speakers. So, the big question is this: is this possible, and how do we do this? This may be a really basic/stupid question for all I know. I was looking through the instruction booklet to the receiver and it does mention a multi-zone set up, but it appears that requires a second receiver and I think we really want to avoid that. Also, the receiver is the Yamaha RX-V659. Not sure if that is an issue or not. If anybody can help, thanks in advance.
