Definitely should be possible. Connect jack to jack leads between the triggers and then turn them on in the onkyo menu. May need a switch off and on again to start working.

Check pages 78 and 59 of your manual. It looks like the triggers are designed for control of additional zones. If those zones can be left permanently on (ie they come on when you turn the av receiver on) then you should be fine.
