HDMI output and Zone 2/3 receiver on XG1v4 dvr

 on XG1v4 4k DVR- only video/audio ouput is a (digital) HDMI so how can I play sound/audio from my receiver to Zone 2/3 since the INPUTS for zone 2/3 have to be from an ANALOG source(RCA composite cable) and NOT a DIGITAL(HDMI) source.  I believe a DIGITAL (HDMI) input source from the DVR to the receiver is fine for "zone 1" to speakers  (that are hooked  to the receiver directly) but NOT for Zone 2 /3 (since those zones need to have an analog input source).  The old, non 4k X1 dvr had a Analog RCA output PLUS a Digital HDMI output.  The new XG1v4 ONLY has a DIGITAL HDMI output and NO ANALOG OUTPUT.

 

IS this correct? - if so no one who uses multiple zones 2/3 can use this "new" XG1v4 dvr to play pandora or anything else through zone2/3 sound
