I got it to work. Unfortunately I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I DID.
I pressed a few buttons on the remote, saw that it came up zone 2, turned on zone 2 in the menu played around with it and VOILA, sound outside and volume control.
Great that works, but I truly wish i had the sequence i did it with, so I could offer assistance to others.
Thanks for the help here though. I'm sure it won't be the last time that I seek help.
Trouble is the damn manual is confusing.
Thanks again. I will use any other advice, critique, ideas that other owners have, and are willing to share.
I can only learn more!!:
