Since there is no dedicated Zone 2 button on the remote, you would have to first press the front panel button labeled “Zone” to allow the amplifier to control Zone 2 via the HTR-2 remote.
The display would then change to show “Z2” and the volume and the input. At this point you would be able to control that zone source or volume by using the HTR-2 remote. You will also be able to turn the Zone on or put into standby using the power button on the HTR-2.
It’s also good to note that after about 5 seconds or so, the amplifier will resort back to the Zone 1 control if it does not receive a signal from the HTR-2. At that point, you will have to push the Zone button on the amplifier again to put back into Zone 2 control.
