A home theater typically includes your audio/video receiver, which controls the system; a DVD player; a source component for television broadcasts, which may be a cable box, a satellite dish receiver, an HDTV tuner or simply an antenna connected to the TV; a video display (television); and loudspeakers. All of these components are connected by various types of cables for audio and video signals.
The main benefit of a home theater system is that several loudspeakers are used in various locations around the room to produce surround sound. Surround sound immerses you in the musical or film presentation for increased realism. The AVR 154 may have up to five speakers connected directly to it (plus a subwoofer). Each main speaker is powered by its own amplifier channel inside the receiver. When more than two speakers are used, it is called a multichannel system. Front Left and Right The main speakers are used the same way as in a 2-channel system. However, you may notice that in many surround modes, these speakers are used more for ambient sound while the main action, especially dialogue, is moved to the center speaker. Center The center speaker is usually placed above or below the video screen, and is used mostly for dialogue in movies and television programs. This placement allows the dialogue to originate near the actors faces, for a more natural sound. Surround Left and Right The surround speakers are used to improve directionality of ambient sounds. In addition, by using more loudspeakers in the system, more dynamic soundtracks may be played without risk of overloading any one speaker. Many people expect the surround speakers to play as loud as the front speakers. Although all of the speakers in the system will be calibrated to sound equally loud at the listening position, most artists use the surround speakers for ambient effects only, and they program their materials to steer very little sound to these speakers. Subwoofer A subwoofer is a special-purpose speaker designed to play only the lowest frequencies (the bass). It may be used to augment smaller, limited-range satellite speakers used for the other channels. In addition, many digital-format programs, such as movies recorded in Dolby Digital, contain a special low-frequency effects
There are different types of audio and video connections used to connect the receiver to the speakers and video display, and to connect the source devices to the receiver. To make it easier to keep them all straight, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has established a color-coding standard. See Table 1.

You are now ready to connect your various components to your receiver. Before beginning, turn off all components, including the AVR 154, and unplug their power cords. Dont plug any of the power cords back in until you have finished making all of your connections. Remember that your receiver generates heat while it is on. Select a location that leaves several inches of space on all sides of the receiver. Avoid completely enclosing the receiver inside an unventilated cabinet. It is preferable to place components on separate shelves rather than stacking them directly on top of the receiver. Some surface finishes are delicate. Try to select a location with a sturdy surface finish.
Step Three Connect the Antennas
Connect the FM and AM antennas to their terminals. See Figure 18.
Step One Connect the Speakers
If you have not yet done so, place your speakers in the listening room as described in the Speaker Placement section above. Connect the center, front left, front right, surround left and surround right loudspeakers to the corresponding speaker terminals on the AVR 154. See Figure 16. Maintain the proper polarity by always connecting the positive and negative terminals on each speaker to the positive and negative terminals on the receiver. Use the Connection Color Guide on page 16 as a reference.
Figure 18 Antenna Connections
Step Four Connect the Source Components
Use the Table A5 worksheet in the Appendix to note which connections you will use for each of your source devices. A source is a device where the audio and video signals originate. Some sources, such as CD players, only offer audio, while sources used for watching movies or broadcast-television programming deliver a video signal as well. Referring to the photograph of the AVR 154 remote control on page 13, there is a section of 12 buttons near the top of the remote designated Input Selectors: DVD, AM/FM, CD, AUX, TAPE, VID1, VID2, VID3, HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3 and 6CH. Each of these buttons corresponds to a set of input connectors on the AVR. The set of connectors is referred to as a source input. The goal of Step Four of the Installation is to match up each of your source devices, e.g., DVD player and cable television box, with the correct connectors on the AVR 154. We recommend that you refer to Table A1 in the appendix when making these connections. Although you may connect a source to any source input with the matching types of connectors, by selecting the source input dedicated to the same type of component, you will be able to program the AVRs universal remote to control it, simplifying operation. The precise connections to be made depend on the capabilities of the source device and your video display (TV). Select the best audio and video connections for each source. The types of connections are listed in order of preference:
If the player is capable of playing multichannel discs, including DVD-Audio, SACD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc, make the following additional connection (see Figure 20): Connect the DVD players 6-channel analog audio outputs to the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs on the AVR.
Composite/S-Video: If the best video connection common to both the DVD player and the TV is either S-video or composite video, follow these steps (see Figure 22):
Connect the DVD players S-video or composite video output (use one connection only) to the corresponding DVD Video Input on the AVR. Connect the DVD players coaxial digital audio output to the Coaxial 1 input on the AVR. If the player is capable of playing multichannel discs, including DVD-Audio, SACD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc, make the following additional connection (see Figure 22): Connect the DVD players 6-channel analog audio outputs to the 6-Channel Analog Audio Inputs on the AVR.
Connect an Audio/Video Recorder (PVR, DVR or TiVo)
HDMI Video: If the recorder and the TV both have an HDMI connector, connect the recorder as follows (see Figure 23):
Connect the recorders HDMI output to the HDMI 2 Input on the AVR. Connect the recorders optical digital audio output to the Optical 2 input on the AVR. Then go to Composite/S-Video on page 23 to make recordings, as the AVR 154 cannot make recordings from digital audio (except 2-channel) and video sources.

Figure 22 Connecting a Composite- or S-Video-Equipped Disc Player
Component Video: If the recorder or the TV does not have an HDMI connector, but they both have component video connectors, connect the recorder as follows (see Figure 24):
Connect the recorders component video output to the Component Video 2 Input on the AVR.
Connect the recorders optical digital audio output to the Optical 2 Input on the AVR (if available). Then go to Composite/S-Video below to make recordings, as the AVR 154 cannot make recordings from copy-protected component video sources or digital audio (except 2-channel) sources.
Connect a Cable TV, Satellite, HDTV or Other Set-Top Box for Broadcast Television
NOTE: If you receive your television programming using your TV with an antenna or direct cable connection, connect the TVs analog audio outputs to the Video 3 Analog Audio Inputs. If the TV has a digital audio output, connect it to one of the frontpanel digital audio inputs. Do not connect any video output on the television set to any video input on the receiver. See Step Five for information on connecting the receivers video monitor outputs to the television.
HDMI Video: If the set-top box and the TV both have an HDMI connector, connect the set-top box as follows (see Figure 26):
Connect the set-tops HDMI output to the HDMI 3 Input on the AVR.
Figure 24 Connecting a Component-Video-Equipped Recorder
Connect the set-tops optical digital audio output to the Optical 1 Input on the AVR (if available).
Composite/S-Video: If the best video connection common to both the recorder and the TV is either S-video or composite video, or to make recordings, follow these steps, using only one type of video connection throughout (see Figure 25):
Connect the recorders S-video/composite video output to the Video 1 S-Video/Composite Video Input on the AVR. Connect the recorders S-video/composite video input to the Video 1 S-Video/Composite Video Output on the AVR. Connect the recorders analog audio outputs to the Video 1 Audio Inputs on the AVR. Connect the recorders analog audio inputs to the Video 1 Audio Outputs on the AVR.

Component Video: If the set-top box or the TV does not have an HDMI connector, but they both have component video connectors, connect the set-top box as follows (see Figure 27):
Connect the set-tops component video output to the Component Video 2 Input on the AVR (if available).
Figure 25 Connecting a Video Recorder
NOTE: If S-video or composite video is the only video connection, you may also use any available digital audio connection.
Figure 27 Connecting a Component-Video-Equipped Set-Top Box
Composite/S-Video: If the best video connection common to both the set-top box and the TV is either S-video or composite video, follow these steps (see Figure 28):
Connect the set-tops S-video or composite video output (use one connection only) to the corresponding Video 2 Input on the AVR. Connect the set-tops optical digital audio output to the Optical 1 Input on the AVR (if available). For fully analog set-top boxes, connect the boxs analog audio outputs to the AVRs Video 2 Audio Inputs.
To make analog audio recordings, connect the recorders left and right analog audio outputs to the Tape Inputs on the AVR, and the recorders analog audio inputs to the AVRs Tape Outputs. No video connection is required, although the AVR will display the lastselected analog video source when the Tape source is selected. See Figure 30.
Figure 30 Connecting an Audio Recorder
Connect a Portable Audio Player
For audio-only playback from a portable CD player, cassette deck, MP3 player or other device equipped with a 1/8-inch headphone jack, use a stereo 1/8-inch mini-plug interconnect (not included) to connect the devices headphone jack to the AUX Input on the AVR. Use the devices own controls to operate it. See Figure 31.
Figure 28 Connecting a Set-Top Box
Connect a CD Player or Any Audio-Only Device
If the CD player or other component has a digital audio output, connect it to any available digital audio input on the AVR. If not, connect the CD players left and right analog audio outputs to the CD Audio Inputs. No video connection is required, but the AVR will display the last-selected analog video source when the CD source is selected. See Figure 29.
NOTE: If your video devices are equipped with HDMI or component video outputs, you may connect them to any available audio and video input on the AVR.
Composite/S-Video: Important do not skip this step, even if you have connected the AVRs HDMI or Component Video Monitor Outputs to the display. To view the AVRs on-screen menus and messages, connect either the Composite or S-Video Monitor Output to the display. In addition, if any sources are connected to the AVR via a composite or S-video connection, connect the corresponding Monitor Output to the display. See Figure 35.
Step Five Connect the Video Display
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not connect any video output on the video display (TV) to any video input on the AVR. Doing so may cause undesirable video interference.
Figure 35 Composite and S-Video Monitor Outputs
HDMI Video: If the display has an HDMI input, and if any sources are
connected to any of the AVRs HDMI Inputs, connect the HDMI Monitor Output to the display (see Figure 33). Go to Composite/S-Video below for an additional required connection.
Consult the manual for your TV to make sure you understand how to select each video input. As you play different source devices that use different types of video connections, select the correct video input on your video display.
Step Six Plug in AC Power
Having made all of your wiring connections, it is now time to plug each components AC power cord into a working outlet.
Figure 33 HDMI Monitor Output
Before plugging the AVR 154s AC Power Cord into an electrical outlet, make sure that the Master Power Switch on the front panel is popped out so that the word OFF appears on its top. Gently press the button to turn the switch off. This will prevent the possibility of damaging the AVR in case of a transient power surge.
Component Video: If the display has component video inputs, and
if any sources are connected to either of the AVRs Component Video Inputs, connect the Component Video Monitor Outputs to the display (see Figure 34). Go to Composite/S-Video below for an additional required connection.
Step Seven Insert Batteries in Remote
The AVR 154 remote control uses three AAA batteries, which are included. To remove the battery cover located on the back of the remote, firmly press the ridged depression and slide the cover toward the top of the remote. Insert the batteries as shown in Figure 36, making sure to observe the correct polarity.
Using the On-Screen Menu System
The full-OSD system is accessed by pressing the OSD Button on the remote. See Figure 40. While the full-OSD system is in use, it isnt possible to see any video programming. In addition, an OSD ON message will appear on the front panel of the receiver to remind you to use a video display.
Figure 40 Navigation Buttons
Press the OSD Button to display the Master Menu. Use the / Buttons to point the cursor to different lines in the menu. Press the OK Button to select one of the submenus listed in the Master Menu, or to return to a previous menu. Within the submenus, after positioning the cursor at a particular line item, use the / Buttons to change a setting. When the desired setting appears, use the / Buttons to navigate to another line item. Except for the TITLE setting in the INPUT SETUP menu, there is no need to press the OK Button after your desired setting appears. The Master Menu allows access to four submenus: Input Setup, Surround Select, Manual Setup and System Setup. See Figure 41. NOTE: Your menus appearance may vary, but the functions remain the same.
Step One Determine Speaker Size
The AVR 154 cant detect how many speakers youve connected to it; nor can it determine their capabilities. For this part of the system setup, consult the owners guide for each of your speakers. If you dont have the guide, obtain the speakers technical specifications from the manufacturers Web site, or by contacting the manufacturer directly. This information is needed to program the receivers bass management, which determines which speakers the receiver will use to play back the low-frequency (bass) portion of the source program. If the lowest notes are played by small satellite speakers, they wont sound their best, and they may damage the speaker by going beyond its capabilities. If the highest notes are played by the special-purpose subwoofer, they may not be heard at all.
With proper bass management, the AVR 154 divides the source signal at a crossover point. All information above the crossover point is played through the satellite speaker (front left/right, center or surround left/right), and all information below the crossover point is played through the subwoofer. This enables each loudspeaker in your system to perform at its best, delivering an enjoyable sound experience. Find the speakers frequency response, which is usually given as a range, e.g., 100Hz 20kHz (3dB). This specification tells you whether the speaker is able to play sounds that are very high- or low-pitched, represented by the high and low frequencies. We are concerned with the lowest frequency that each of your main speakers is capable of playing, which is 100Hz in this example. Use the Table A6 worksheet in the Appendix to note this number as the crossover for that speaker (not the same as the crossover frequency listed in the speakers specifications). The subwoofers frequency response includes only the lowest frequencies, since the subwoofer is only designed to play bass materials. A typical frequency response for a subwoofer is 25Hz 150Hz. In this case, the higher number is most important and should be noted in the worksheet.
Delay Adjust Menu
As explained above in Step Two Measure Speaker Distances, sometimes the speakers are placed at different distances from the listening position, which can muddy the sound, as sounds are heard earlier or later than desired. Even if all of your speakers are placed the same distance from the listening position, do not skip this menu. In the Manual Setup menu, move the cursor to the DELAY ADJUST line and press the OK Button to display the Delay Adjust menu. See Figure 46.
Step Four Output Level Calibration
This is an important step in the configuration process, and should not be skipped. Many people assume that during a presentation, such as a movie, the surround channels will sound as loud as the front channels. However, this is usually not the case, as directors often steer just the ambient or background sounds to the surround channels. For example, during a rainy scene you may only hear rain falling, with the occasional thunderclap, from the surround speakers while the main dialogue is heard from the center speakers. At times, you may not hear any sounds at all from the surround channels. To achieve these effects successfully, it is important that the surround channels sound as loud as the other channels when a test tone is played. Therefore, calibrating the speaker output levels so that all speakers
Figure 46 Delay Adjust Menu Screen
This menu requires you to enter the distance from each speaker to the listening position, which you measured in Step Two Measure Speaker Distances and noted in Table A4 in the Appendix. The default unit of measurement is in feet. If you wish to change the unit to meters, move the cursor to the UNIT line, and use the / Buttons to change the unit to METER.
sound equally loud at the listening position is a critical step in the setup process. Sit in the listening position, and eliminate external noises for the few minutes needed to calibrate the output levels. You may use a handheld SPL meter (available at most electronics stores) set to the C-Weighting, Slow scale, or you may calibrate the levels by ear. Try to adjust the levels so that all channels sound equally loud. If you are using a handheld SPL meter with source material, such as a test disc or another audio selection, play it now and adjust the AVRs master volume control until the meter measures 75dB. If you are using the AVRs internal test tone, then adjust the AVRs master volume to 15dB. Adjust the levels using either the remote control by itself, or using the full-OSD menu system, following one of these methods: Method A. Using the Remote Control With the Test Tone While sitting in the listening position, press the Test Button on the remote (see Figure 47). The test tone will start playing at the front left channel. After a few seconds, it will move to the center channel, then the front right channel, surround right, surround left and finally the subwoofer, displaying the channel name on the front of the receiver and in the semi-OSD display, as well as the current level setting (varies between 10dB and +10dB). Press the / Buttons to adjust the level setting, and the tone will remain at that channel for several seconds after your last adjustment. When you have finished adjusting the levels, press the Test Button again to stop the tone. Measure the levels by ear or using an SPL meter, as described above. Method B. Using the Remote Control With Source Material Begin playback of your external source material, such as a favorite CD track or a test disc. While sitting in the listening position, press the Channel Button on the remote (see Figure 47). The FRONT L LEVEL message will be displayed on the front panel and in the semi-OSD display. If you wish to adjust the output level of the front left channel, press the OK Button and use the / Buttons to adjust the level between 10dB and +10dB. Press the OK Button to enter the new setting, and use the / Buttons to select another speaker channel to adjust: center, front right, surround right, surround left or subwoofer. The goal is for the sound field to sound natural, with no one speaker being overly emphasized. If you are using one of the commercially available test discs, follow the instructions included with the disc to optimize performance. When you have finished making your adjustments, either wait a few seconds for the AVR to time-out on its own, or press the OK Button twice with any speaker channel displayed. Method C. Using the Full-OSD Menu The full-OSD menu system offers the easiest and most flexible manner of setting output levels. Press the OSD Button to display the Master Menu, and then navigate to the MANUAL SETUP line. Press the OK Button to display the Manual Setup menu, and then navigate to the CHANNEL ADJUST line. Press the OK Button to display the Channel Adjust menu. See Figure 48.
The AVR 154 will switch to the audio and video inputs and surround mode assigned to the source. If you set the BASS MGR setting in the Speaker X-Over menu to INDEPENDENT, the AVR 154 will change the speaker size configuration to the one programmed for the source. The source name appears in the upper line of the front-panel display. If you retitled the source, the new title will appear by itself. Otherwise, the audio input assigned to the source (analog or one of the digital audio inputs) will also be displayed. The surround mode is displayed on the lower line. The same information appears on screen in the semi-OSD, unless you have set the semi-OSD to OFF in the System Setup menu, as described in the Advanced Functions section.
Audio Input Selection
The AVR 154 is programmed at the factory to use the default audio inputs for each source, as indicated in Table A2 in the Appendix. To assign a digital audio input to a source (if you have not done so using the Input Setup menu during Initial Setup), press the Digital Button on the remote. The current audio input selection will flash in the display. Press the / Buttons to scroll through the audio inputs. When the desired input appears, press the OK Button to select it. See Figure 57.
Plug the 1/4" plug on a pair of headphones into the headphone jack on the front of the receiver for private listening. See Figure 55. The first time you use the headphones, the DOLBY H:BP message will be displayed, indicating that Dolby Headphone surround processing is in the bypass mode, which delivers a conventional 2-channel signal to the headphones.
Figure 57 Digital Input Selection
Figure 55 Headphone Jack
If the Auto Poll feature is ON in the Input Setup menu, and if a digital audio input has been assigned to the source, the AVR 154 will first check the digital audio input for a signal. If a signal is present, the AVR 154 will select the digital audio input. If no signal is present, the AVR 154 will switch to the analog audio inputs for the source.
NOTE: The 6.1-channel signals Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES Matrix and Discrete each include a flag meant to signal the receiver to decode the surround back channel. Since the AVR 154 is only capable of processing and playing 5.1 channels, the indications EX-OFF or ES-OFF, as appropriate, will always appear for 6.1-channel bitstreams. Refer to Table 2 on page 42 for more information on which surround modes are available with different bitstreams. When a PCM signal is received, the PCM message, followed by the sampling rate of the signal (32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz or 96kHz), will scroll once across the front-panel display. In addition, the Speaker/Channel Input Indicators will indicate the number of channels discretely encoded in the signal by displaying a letter inside that channels speaker box. The letters flash when no signal is present, such as when a DVD is paused. See Figure 44. Even when only two channels left and right are present in the signal, the analog surround modes may be used to decode the signal into the remaining channels. NOTE: Dolby Digital 2.0 signals may also include a Dolby Surround flag indicating DS-ON or DS-OFF, depending on whether the 2-channel bitstream contains just stereo information, or a downmix of a multichannel program that can be decoded by the Dolby Pro Logic decoder in the AVR. By default, these signals are played in Dolby Pro Logic II Movie mode, but you may select another Dolby surround mode manually. never a time when all of the AVR 154s surround modes are available, there is usually a wide variety of modes available for a given input. There are three methods of manually selecting one of the available surround modes: 1. From the front panel, press the Surround Mode Button until the desired mode group (Dolby, DTS, DSP, Stereo, Logic 7) is selected, and the last-used mode from that group will be activated. Then press the Surround Select Button repeatedly to scroll through the modes available within that group. 2. Using the remote, press the button for the desired mode group: Dolby Sur for the Dolby modes DTS Sur for the DTS Digital modes DTS Neo:6 for the DTS Neo:6 modes Logic 7 for the Logic 7 modes Stereo for the Stereo or Surround Off modes Surr for the DSP Surround modes (Hall 1, Hall 2, Theater) Press the mode button repeatedly to scroll through the modes available within that group. 3. The full-OSD menu system allows access to submenus for each of the mode groups through the Surround Select menu. See Figure 64.
As mentioned in the Introduction to Home Theater section, surround mode selection is dependent upon the format of the incoming audio signal, as well as personal taste. There is no harm in experimenting with all of the modes available with any given source material. Table 2 offers a brief description of each mode the AVR 154 is capable of using, and also indicates the types of incoming signals or digital bitstreams the mode may be used with. Additional information about the Dolby and DTS modes is available on the companies Web sites: www.dolby.com and www.dtsonline.com. When in doubt, check the jacket of your DVD for more information on which surround modes are available on the disc. Usually nonessential sections of the disc, such as trailers, extra materials or the disc menu, are only available in Dolby Digital 2.0 (2-channel) or PCM 2-channel mode. If the main title is playing and the letters in the Speaker/Channel Input Indicators are not lit for all speaker locations, look for an audio setup section in the discs menu. Also, make sure your DVD players audio output is set to the original bitstream rather than just PCM. Check the DVD players output setting by stopping play of the disc and checking the DVD players menu system. As indicated in Table 2, different surround modes may only be available with certain input signals or bitstream formats. For any incoming signal, only a limited number of surround modes are available. Although there is
Advanced Remote Control Functions
The remote control not only operates the AVR 154, but it also serves as a universal remote that may be programmed to operate many of your other home theater components, as described in the Installation section. Each time you select one of your other components, the AVR remote switches to the control functions for that component. Since many buttons have unique functions for each component, refer to the Function List in Table A9 of the Appendix for assistance in operating your other components. Each buttons function will not necessarily correspond to its label.
The AVR 154 remotes punch-through feature allows you to select one component for the remote to operate, while simultaneously setting certain groups of controls to operate another component. For example, while using the AVR to control surround modes and other audio functions, you may operate the transport controls of your DVD player. Or while using the remote to control video functions on your TV, you may use your cable box to change channels and the AVR to control the volume. NOTE: It is not necessary to program the remote to control your DVD players transport controls while the AVR, VID2 or VID3 devices are in use, as the remote is preprogrammed at the factory with this function. To program punch-through control while operating any device: 1. Press and hold the Input Selector (or AVR selector) for the main device the remote will be operating until the Program LED flashes and the remote enters Program mode. 2. Select the type of punch-through programming. a) To program volume control punch-through, press the Volume Up Button. b) To program channel control punch-through, press the Volume Down Button. c) To program transport control punch-through, press the Play Button. 3. Press the Input Selector (or AVR Selector) for the device whose volume, channel or transport controls you would like to be active while operating the device you selected in the first step. The LED will flash green to confirm the programming.
Some people find the front-panel messages to be distracting and would prefer to dim them or turn them off altogether. When the display is dimmed or darkened, it will return to full brightness for 5 seconds any time a command is received before dimming or darkening again.
For example, if you wish to watch your TV (programmed into the Video 3 Button) while changing channels using your cable box (Video 2), first press and hold the Video 3 Button until the LED flashes. Then press the Volume Down Button, followed by the Video 2 Button. To undo punch-through programming, follow the same steps as above, but press the same Input (or AVR) Selector in Steps 1 and 3. You may reassign the transport control punch-through programming for the AVR, VID2 and VID3 devices to other devices, such as CD. If you wish to remove transport control punch-through altogether for the AVR, VID2 or VID3 device, follow the same procedure as for programming punch-through, but in Step 3 press either of the other two of these three special selector buttons.
