technology mess

We now have a 5.1 stereo system, which supports a "Zone 2" for the extra speakers in the kitchen. After some diagnosing of why we weren't getting sound in zone 2, the manual reveals: "Only analog input sources are ouptu by the ZONE 2 LINE OUT and ZONE 2 SPEAKERS terminals. Digital input sources are not output." Is this DRM biting us or just a lame receiver? My gut says DRM but I'm trying not to get too upset because I know I don't know anything about this stuff.

Right now, it seems that the situation is: for 5.1 while playing movies, we need to use the optical line from the computer to the receiver; but then to play music throughout the house, it seems we need to switch to an analog line between the two.
