I have an NAD 747 receiver.  It will not allow me to play music through zone 2 with my Apple tv.  I have tried every connection I can think of.  At present, I have the following hooked up to the receiver: Cable (HDMI1), Blu-Ray (HDMI2), Apple (HDMI3), Ipod  (analog).  The Cable also has a separate connection through Analog.  I can play it in both zones.  I have tried running a digital optical connection from Apple to the receiver.  It will not work.  I have tried disconnecting the Apple tv from zone 1 (home theater) and just running it through Zone 2 -- it will not work.  The only thing that I can think remains is that I need to convert Apple tv's digital signal to analog and connect it that way.  I cannot believe that this would be necessary.  Why would it work only through analog in this advanced time of digital signals?????   If I am missing something, PLEASE let me know.  Thanks!!!

AppleTV 2, iOS 4.3.2

    I know that with Onkyo receivers with a powered zone 2, you have to use analog audio for zone 2. I just set that up for a customer yesterday. I ran the HDMI in to the surround sound receiver and then also ran the red and white analog audio to the input with the same name on the receiver. It's a pain but that is probably your problem. You should be able to do both the HDMI and the analog stereo audio.
