Denon Multi-Zone Receiver help

by akdairy / December 3, 2007 4:40 AM PST

I need some help! Ok, I?m going to try and set this up. I have a Denon 2805 with a 7.1 speaker setup plus a second set of speaker wires going into front "B" that goes into a 4 switch speaker selector which goes to 4 sets of speakers throughout my house. (I wanted my cake and eat it too, wanted 7.1 and a second zone, this was my work around). So now that I have this set up I have very little sound coming to these other "set", especially if I have several selected; plus I have to select "pure direct" to have just down stairs playing. I still want to keep my 7.1 and be able to have multiple zones. So my question is, can I get a second 2ch stereo receiver and connect it to Denon 2805 using the multi-zone feature, remove the "B" and place it into the new receiver? Will this help with the volume? Does the second receiver have to be a special multi-zone receiver or can I use any receiver? How do I hook up this second receiver meaning what out/in do I use for the second receiver; I can?t find any diagrams? Is it just better to get a powered amp? Please help!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
