Not sure if serious. If not, LOL. If so, LOL.
Yeah, the issue is you can't play any digital sources on Z2. Analogue only
Thanks if looks promising anyway! I guess what I'm doing is HEOS agnostic, but ultimately the same. I use my Rpi remotely the way HEOS offers, but I could possibly semi replace it. It's not straightforward, but as I said, I think there are options and workarounds that aren't painful, just different. When it arrives and I set it up will I know what I'm working with. Thanks again! I guess I'll be buying some HEOS speakers for the bathroom and garden etc 😃 there is no way to DIY tap into HEOS I doubt right?
I’m not sure on that one to be honest, I think the option is only available using the HEOS side of the AVR, which should do the job as you can access your music from pretty much anywhere by the look of it. I just use Spotify though so not able to 100% confirm, the image below is the options on HEOS, ignore the inputs one as that is just to change input on the receiver itself.
Oh good! So I have a console plugged into hdmi1 and an Rpi music server in hdmi2 so I can watch/play hdmi1 and listen to hdmi2? I thought the manual suggests otherwise if I'm honest, but willing to take a punt and make it work...
