Important Safety Information
Verify Line Voltage Before Use
Your AVR 147 has been designed for use with 120-volt AC current. Connection to a line voltage other than that for which it is intended can create a safety and fire hazard and may damage the unit. If you have any questions about the voltage requirements for your specific model, or about the line voltage in your area, contact your selling dealer before plugging the unit into a wall outlet. units feet may leave marks on certain wood or veneer materials. Use caution when placing the unit on soft woods or other materials that may be damaged by heat or heavy objects. Some surface finishes may be particularly sensitive to absorbing such marks, due to a variety of factors beyond Harman Kardon's control, including the nature of the finish, cleaning materials used, and normal heat and vibration caused by the use of the product, or other factors. We recommend that caution be exercised in choosing an installation location for the component and in normal maintenance practices, as your warranty will not cover this type of damage to furniture.
Do Not Use Extension Cords
To avoid safety hazards, use only the power cord attached to your unit. We do not recommend that extension cords be used with this product. As with all electrical devices, do not run power cords under rugs or carpets or place heavy objects on them. Damaged power cords should be replaced immediately by an authorized service center with a cord meeting factory specifications.
When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft, dry cloth. If necessary, and only after unplugging the AC power cord, wipe it with a soft cloth dampened with mild soapy water, then a fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe it dry immediately with a dry cloth. NEVER use benzene, aerosol cleaners, thinner, alcohol or any other volatile cleaning agent. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the finish of metal parts. Avoid spraying insecticide near the unit.
Handle the AC Power Cord Gently
When disconnecting the power cord from an AC outlet, always pull the plug; never pull the cord. If you do not intend to use the unit for any considerable length of time, disconnect the plug from the AC outlet.
Moving the Unit
Before moving the unit, be certain to disconnect any interconnection cords with other components, and make certain that you disconnect the unit from the AC outlet.
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. Table 1 may be helpful to you as a reference while you set up your system.
Table 1 Connection Color Guide
Bare wire cables are installed as follows (see Figure 2):
1. Unscrew the terminal cap until the pass-through hole in the collar is revealed. 2. Insert the bare end of the wire into the hole. 3. Screw the cap back into place until the wire is held snugly.

Types of Connections
This section will briefly review different types of cables and connections that you may use to set up your system.
The subwoofer is a specialized type of loudspeaker that is usually connected in a different way. The subwoofer is used to play only the low frequencies (bass), which require much more power than the other speaker channels. In order to obtain the best results, most speaker manufacturers offer powered subwoofers, in which the speaker contains its own amplifier on board. Sometimes the subwoofer is connected to the receiver using the front left and right speaker outputs, and then the front left and right speakers are connected to terminals on the subwoofer. More often, a line-level (nonamplified) connection is made from the receivers Subwoofer Output to a corresponding jack on the subwoofer, as shown in Figure 3. Although the subwoofer output looks similar to the analog audio jacks used for the various components, it is filtered and only allows the low frequencies to pass. Dont connect this output to your other devices. Although doing so wont cause any harm, performance will suffer.
Speaker cables carry an amplified signal from the receivers speaker terminals to each loudspeaker. Speaker cables generally contain two wire conductors, or leads, inside plastic insulation. The two conductors are usually differentiated in some way, by using different colors, or stripes, or even by adding a ridge to the insulation. Sometimes the actual wires are different, one being copper colored and the other silver. The differentiation is important because each speaker must be connected to the receivers speaker-output terminals using two wires, one positive (+) and one negative (). This is called speaker polarity. Its important to maintain the proper polarity for all speakers in the system. If some speakers have their negative terminals connected to the receivers positive terminals, performance can suffer, especially for the low frequencies. Always connect the positive terminal on the loudspeaker, which is usually colored red, to the positive terminal on the receiver, which is colored as shown in the Connection Color Guide (Table 1). Similarly, always connect the black negative terminal on the speaker to the black negative terminal on the receiver. The AVR 147 uses binding-post speaker terminals that can accept banana plugs or bare-wire cables. Banana plugs are simply plugged into the hole in the middle of the terminal cap. See Figure 1.
Using the On-Screen Menu System
The full-OSD system is accessed by pressing the OSD Button on the remote. See Figure 38. 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 39 Master Menu Screen
If you are an experienced home theater user, you may prefer to use the menus in this order: 1. System Setup (described in Advanced Functions section) 2. EzSet/EQ (described in this section) 3. Manual Setup (described here and in Advanced Functions) 4. Input Setup (described in this section) 5. Surround Select (see Advanced Functions section) We recommend that most users follow the instructions in this INITIAL SETUP section to configure a basic home theater system. You may return to these menus at any time to make additional adjustments. This section requires that you complete all of the steps in the Installation section that apply to your receiver. You should have connected all of your loudspeakers and a video display, as well as your source devices. You should be able to turn on the receiver and view a blue screen on your video display. If necessary, reread the Installation Section before continuing.
Figure 38 Navigation Buttons
The Master Menu will always be displayed when you first press the OSD Button. Use the Buttons on the remote to point the cursor to different lines in the menu. Press the Set Button on the remote to select a line that has no setting to be adjusted, such as one of the submenus listed in the Master Menu, or a line that returns you to a previous menu. Within the submenus, after you have positioned the cursor at a particular line item, use the / Buttons on the remote 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 Set Button after your desired setting appears. NOTE: The / and Set Buttons on the front panel have no effect on the OSD system.
Configure the AVR 147 Using EzSet/EQ
One of the most important and perhaps often overlooked aspects of setting up a home theater system is calibrating the receiver to match the loudspeakers, which enables the AVR to perform at its best. Until recently, most receivers required the user to perform the calibration and configuration manually, a somewhat tedious process that called for a good ear or the purchase of an SPL (sound-pressure level) meter. Although you may configure the AVR 147 manually, as described in the Advanced Features section, we recommend that most users take advantage of our signature EzSet/EQ system.
Before beginning, eliminate extraneous background noise that might affect the results, such as noisy air conditioning. Try to avoid making any loud noises while running EzSet/EQ. IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: During the EzSet/EQ procedure, a series of very loud test tones will be played through all of the speakers. Avoid sitting or standing close to any one speaker during the procedure. If you are particularly sensitive to loud noises, you may wish to leave the room and have someone else run EzSet/EQ. Step One Place the included EzSet/EQ microphone in the listening position, or in the center of the room, at about the same height as the listeners ears. The microphone features a threaded insert on the bottom so that it can be mounted on a camera tripod for stability. Step Two Plug the EzSet/EQ microphone into the Headphone Jack/EzSet Microphone Input Jack on the front of the receiver. See Figure 40. Step Four If you forgot to plug in the microphone, a message will flash at the bottom of the screen. If the microphone has been plugged in, a warning message will appear and remain on screen for several seconds (see Figure 42).
Figure 42 EzSet/EQ Warning Screen
Please be patient until the warning screen is replaced by the main EzSet/EQ screen. See Figure 43.
Figure 40 Plug EzSet/EQ microphone into receiver.
Step Three Make sure that the AVR 147 and the video display are turned on. Press the OSD Button to display the Master Menu. See Figures 38 and 39. Use the / Buttons to move the cursor to the EzSet/EQ line, and then press the Set Button to select the EzSet/EQ menu. See Figure 41.
Figure 43 EzSet/EQ Main Screen
The cursor will be pointing to the word MEASUREMENT at the top of the screen. Use the / Buttons on the remote to select START. See Figures 44 and 45.
Figure 41 EzSet/EQ Menu Screen
The cursor will be next to the word YES. Press the Set Button to begin EzSet/EQ.

Figure 45 EzSet/EQ Specifying a 7.1 System
Figure 47 EzSet/EQ Speaker Check
Press the Set Button when the correct system configuration appears, and EzSet/EQ will do the rest automatically! NOTE: You may interrupt the EzSet/EQ process at any time after the initial warning screen shown in Figure 42 disappears. Press the Button on the remote, and the cursor will move to the BACK TO MASTER MENU line, giving you an opportunity to exit the on-screen menu system
Figure 49 EzSet/EQ Speaker Delay
NOTE: The AVR 147 is also capable of setting a different type of delay, called A/V Sync Delay. A/V Sync Delay is used to compensate for lip sync problems that may occur when a video display device or set-top box causes delays while digital video signals are processed. It simultaneously adds a delay to all speaker channels in the system. A/V Sync Delay is not set during EzSet/EQ. It may be set while watching a program as follows: press the Delay Button on the remote and the first setting displayed is A/V Sync Delay. Press the Set Button to select it and then use the / Buttons to adjust it. Speaker Level: During this test, EzSet/EQ ensures that all speakers sound equally loud at the listening position. During a surround sound presentation, it is common, at times, for the surround channels to sound less prominent, or not to be used at all. By setting the baseline channel levels correctly, the settings programmed by the director can be even more effective. Speaker Size: This test checks the low-frequency range capabilities of each of your speakers to ensure that low-frequency sounds are not sent to speakers unable to reproduce them efficiently. Each of the main speakers in your system will be assigned a value of Large or Small, depending solely on how it handles low frequencies. Speaker Crossover: This test determines the lowest frequency each of your main speakers is capable of handling effectively, in order to set the highest frequency the subwoofer should reproduce. The system balances the need to ensure that all frequencies are reproduced for smooth transitions between the subwoofer and main speakers without losing any information, against the need to avoid overtaxing smaller satellite speakers. Equalization (EQ): Many factors unique to the listening room can affect the overall sound of a home theater system. For example, a room consisting of hardwood floors and large expanses of glass can sound livelier, with added reverberation, while a carpeted room fitted with draperies can dampen sound waves. In addition, the shape of the room can affect frequency response. If a room has a small alcove near a doorway, for example, you may notice a difference in bass response depending on whether you are standing opposite the alcove or to one side of it.
Figure 50 EzSet/EQ Completed
This is the last step in the configuration process. In the Installation section, you physically connected various cables between your source devices and the AVR. In this section, you will assign the various audio and video inputs to their sources, ensuring that the AVR uses the correct connections each time you select a source. Press the OSD Button to view the Master Menu. The cursor will be pointing to the INPUT SETUP line, and you need only press the Set Button to display the Input Setup menu. See Figure 51.

Figure 65 Front-Panel Input Indicators
You may reassign either component video input to another source if it is physically connected to that input, but there is no option to disable the component video inputs for any source. If a signal is present at the component video input assigned to that source, it will be selected. If your device is not using component video, make sure that other devices connected to the component video inputs are turned off. If no signal is present at the component video input, then the S-video or composite video input for the source will be selected. It is not possible to reassign the S-video or composite video inputs to other sources. For audio-only sources, such as the tuner or CD inputs, when no component video signal is present, the last-used video source will be selected.
Audio Input Selection
The AVR 147 is programmed at the factory to use the analog audio inputs for each source (except for the DVD, Video 2, HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 sources; see Table 4). 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 or front panel. The current audio input selection will flash in the display, and you may press the / (or / on the front panel) Buttons to scroll through the audio inputs. When the desired input appears, press the Set Button to select it. See Figure 64.
6-Channel Direct Inputs
If you wish to hear audio through the 6-Channel Direct Inputs together with video, then connect your multichannel player to both the 6-Channel Inputs and the Component Video 1 Inputs (the default for the 6-Channel Inputs), and the correct audio and video inputs will be selected when you select 6CH as your source. If your multichannel player uses S-video or composite video connections, first select the source you connected the video output to (e.g., DVD), and then select the 6CH source. See Figure 66.
Figure 64 Digital Input Selection
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 147 will first check the digital audio input for a signal. If a signal is present, the AVR 147 will select the digital audio input. If no signal is present, the AVR 147 will switch to the analog audio inputs for the source.
Figure 66 6-Channel Input Selector
Video Input Selection
When a source is selected, the AVR 147 switches to a video input as follows: Only signals originating at one of the two HDMI inputs will be available at the HDMI output. The AVR 147 will not transcode or convert any other types of video signals to the HDMI format. In addition, the AVR 147 cannot access the video data in the HDMI stream. The on-screen displays are not available via the HDMI output. To view the AVRs displays, connect the Composite or S-video Monitor Output to the corresponding input on your TV, and follow the manufacturers instructions for selecting the correct video input on your TV. The COMPONENT IN line of the Input Setup menu indicates which of the two component video inputs on the AVR 147 is assigned to each source. All of the sources listed in the left column of the Source Indicators
Press the Tuning Mode Button (TUN-M on the remote) to switch between Auto and Manual tuning modes. See Figure 70. When an FM station has been tuned, pressing the Tuning Mode Button will switch between stereo and mono tuning, which may improve reception of weaker stations.
Figure 70 Tuning Mode
To store a station in one of the 30 presets (see Figure 71): 1. Tune the desired station. 2. Press the Memory Button on the remote. 3. Use the Numeric Keys to enter the desired preset number. 2. Press the Tuning Buttons on the front panel or remote to scan through the channels. Auto tuning mode is not available. 3. The AVR 147 is capable of storing up to 40 XM Radio preset channels. The presets are divided into five banks, denoted by the letters A through E, with eight numeric presets per bank. After you have programmed preset stations (see below), you may select one by pressing the Set Button repeatedly until PRESET SEARCH appears, then use the / Buttons to change the bank (A through E). Use the Preset Buttons to scan through the eight numeric positions within a bank. When you are able to hear Channel 1, you are ready to activate your module. If you dont hear Channel 1, make sure the modules plug is firmly seated in the XM Antenna jack, and that the module is near a south-facing window. Try unfolding the module and rotating it to obtain reception. You may need to purchase an extension cable, available on the XM Radio site, to ensure that the module is near the window. Tune to Channel 0 for a display of your antenna modules Radio ID number, required for activation. The current channel number and preset location will appear in the upper line of the Message Display, and the channels name will appear in the lower line. Three signal-strength bars will appear to the right of the channel number and preset location. If you wish to display the category, current artist or song title, press the Tuning Mode Button repeatedly. For traffic and weather channels, the current citys name will appear instead of the channel name, and pressing the Tuning Mode Button repeatedly will display the local weather and temperature. Press the Set Button to search all channels. Press it again to search by category, using the / Buttons to change the category. Press the Set Button again to tune the lowest-numbered station available in that category, or without using the arrow keys, press the Set Button to change the preset bank, using the / Buttons to change the bank letter. Press the Set Button again to return to the all-channel search. To store the current channel in one of the 40 preset locations: 1. Press the Set Button repeatedly until PRESET SEARCH appears, then use the / Buttons until the desired bank of presets (A through E) appears in the upper line of the message display. 2. Press the Memory Button, and a line will appear next to the preset bank letter. 3. Use the Numeric Keys to enter the preset location (1 through 8) you wish to store the channel in.
Figure 77 Speaker/Channel Input Indicators
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 twochannel bitstream contains only 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.
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 6 offers a brief description of each mode the AVR 147 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.
Figure 78 Surround Select Menu Screen
Navigate to the line for the desired surround mode group, and press the Set Button to access the submenu for that group. In most cases, the submenu consists of only two lines: 1. MODE: Displays the currently selected mode. Use the / Buttons to scroll through the available modes. 2. BACK TO SURROUND SELECT: May be used to exit the submenu. The Dolby Surround submenu adds some advanced settings.
Dolby Surround Settings
In addition to the MODE line, the DOLBY SURROUND submenu includes three settings that are active only when the Dolby Pro Logic II Music mode has been selected. See Figure 79. 41
We suggest that you experiment with the modes to find a setting that meets your needs. The Night mode may also be adjusted without using the full-OSD menu system. With a Dolby Digital program encoded with Night mode playing, press the Night Button on the remote. Each press of the button will cycle through the three settings, with the selected setting being displayed on the front panel and in the semi-OSD display. UPSAMPLING: The last line of the Surround Select menu activates upsampling, only available with the Dolby Pro Logic II Movie, Dolby Pro Logic II Music and Dolby Pro Logic modes. Normally set to OFF, upsampling, when activated, processes digital sources at a higher resolution for improved sound quality. This feature can be useful to eliminate distortion in some low-resolution sources. Default Modes During initial use or after a processor reset, the AVR 147 will default to the Logic 7 Music mode for all analog and PCM audio inputs. Subsequently, when a source input is selected and an analog or PCM signal is received, the AVR will switch to the last surround mode used for that source input/incoming signal combination.
Whenever a multichannel Dolby Digital or DTS signal is detected, the AVR 147 will automatically switch to that mode, unless the DEFAULT SURR MODE setting in the System Setup menu has been changed to OFF. Table 6 reflects that other surround modes are available for use with the multichannel digital bitstreams. If you would prefer the AVR 147 to use one of those alternate modes any time the same digital signal is detected, then select that mode while the multichannel bitstream is present, and then change the DEFAULT SURR MODE setting in the System Setup menu to OFF. Table 6 provides descriptions of all surround modes available on the AVR 147, along with the incoming bitstreams or signals that the particular mode may be used with. Feel free to experiment and simply cycle through all of the available modes at any time; you cannot cause any problems for the AVR 147 by doing so.
Figure 79 Dolby Surround Menu Screen
CENTER WIDTH: This setting affects how vocals sound through the three front speakers. A higher number (up to 7) focuses the vocal information tightly on the center channel. Lower numbers broaden the vocal soundstage across the three speakers. DIMENSION: This setting affects the depth of the surround presentation, allowing you to move the sound toward the front or rear of the room. The setting of 0 is a neutral default. Setting F-3 moves the sound mostly toward the front of the room, while setting R-3 moves the sound mostly toward the rear. PANORAMA: With the Panorama mode turned ON, some of the sound from the front speakers is moved to the surround speakers, creating an enveloping wraparound type of effect. NIGHT MODE: Night mode is available with some Dolby Digital programs, if it has been encoded in the material. It compresses the peak sound levels, maintaining the intelligibility of the dialogue and quieter passages, while reducing the loudness of special effects and louder passages to avoid disturbing others. Three levels of compression are available: OFF: At this setting, there is no compression, as the Night mode is deactivated. MID: A mild compression is applied. MAX: More compression is applied.
Table 6 Surround Modes
Surround Mode Dolby Digital Description Provides up to five separate main audio channels and a dedicated low-frequency effects (LFE) channel. May be encoded for Night mode, which allows the user to apply a compression setting that maintains intelligibility of softer passages while reducing the loudness of dynamic passages to avoid disturbing others.

Incoming Bitstream or Signal Dolby Digital 1/0/.0 or.1, 2/0/.0 or.1, 3/0/.0 or.1, 2/1/.0 or.1, 2/2/.0 or.1, 3/2/.0 or.1 Dolby Digital EX (played as 5.1) Dolby Digital 1/0/.0 or.1, 2/0/.0 or.1, 3/0/.0 or.1, 2/1/.0 or.1, 2/2/.0 or.1, 3/2/.0 or.1 Dolby Digital EX
Step Two Measure Speaker Distances
Ideally, all of your speakers were placed in a circle, each at the same distance from the listening position. However, your room may not be ideal, and you may have had to place some speakers a little further away than others. This could affect the overall sound of the receiver, as sounds that are supposed to arrive simultaneously from different speakers blur due to different arrival times. The AVR 147 has a delay adjustment that enables the receiver to compensate for real-world speaker placements. Before you begin making adjustments, measure the distance from each speaker to the listening position, and note it in the Table A3 worksheet in the appendix. Even if all of your speakers are the same distance from the listening position, you should enter your speaker distances into the Delay Adjust menu, which is described in Step Three.
Step One Determine Speaker Size
Without using EzSet/EQ, the AVR 147 cant detect how many speakers youve connected to it; nor can it determine their capabilities. For this part of the system setup, you will need to consult the speakers technical specifications. The specification youre looking for is the 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 A5 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). Your subwoofers frequency response will include only the very lowest frequencies, since the subwoofer is designed to play only 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. The purpose of entering this information into the AVR 147 is 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.
Step Three Manual Setup Menu
Now you are ready to program these adjustments into the receiver. Its best to sit in the usual listening position and make the room as quiet as possible. Dont worry if you make a mistake; you can always go back and change these settings. With the receiver and video display turned on, press the OSD Button on the remote to display the Master Menu (see Figure 39). Use the Button on the remote to move the cursor to the MANUAL SETUP line, and press the Set Button to display the Manual Setup menu. See Figure 80.
The AVR 147 offers several system settings that allow you to make the receiver easier to use rather than directly affecting performance. Most of these settings may be accessed from the SYSTEM SETUP menu, which is selected by pressing the OSD Button and navigating to the SYSTEM SETUP line of the MASTER MENU. Press the Set Button to display the submenu. See Figure 86.
Figure 85 Channel Adjust Menu Screen
All of the speaker channels will appear at the top of the screen with their current level settings. Any channels that have not been programmed using the Speaker Size menu will display four dashes and will not be accessible. If you have selected a surround mode that does not utilize all speakers, such as Surround Off, you will see dashed lines next to the speakers that arent needed for that mode. CHANNEL RESET: If you wish to start by resetting all of the levels to their factory defaults of 0dB, navigate to this line and change the setting to ON. The levels will be reset, and this setting will then revert to OFF. If you are using an external source to set your output levels, simply navigate to each channel and use the / Buttons to adjust the level as desired. If you would like to set your levels using the AVR 147s internal test tone, adjust the TEST TONE SEQ and TEST TONE lines as follows. TEST TONE SEQ: When this setting reads AUTO, the test tone will automatically circulate to all channels, pausing for a few moments at each channel and then moving to the next channel several seconds later, as indicated by the blinking cursor. You may adjust the level for any channel when the test tone is paused there by using the / Buttons. You may also use the / Buttons at any time to move the cursor to another line, and the test tone will follow the cursor.
Figure 86 System Setup Menu Screen
VFD FADE TIME OUT: Some people find the brightness of the AVRs front-panel display distracting during movies or listening sessions. Its possible to dim the front-panel display completely using the Dim function (see below). This sets the display to remain dark most of the time, lighting up only when a button is pressed or a remote command is received, and going dark again 5 seconds after the last command. The VFD FADE TIME OUT feature also causes the display to light up only when a button is pressed or a change in the incoming signal is detected, but the display immediately begins to fade to dark. This setting allows you to program the length of the fade time. Select a time-out period of between 3 and 10 seconds, or select OFF if you prefer to leave the displays on at all times or to use the Dim function.
VOLUME DEFAULT and DEFAULT VOL SET: These two settings are used together to program a volume level the AVR will always switch to when turned on. This feature avoids discomfort for listeners in case the last user turned the volume very high. Press the OSD Button to remove the display from the screen so that you may adjust the volume to a desired level while a source is playing. Make a note of the number that appears in the display, and return to the SYSTEM SETUP menu. At the DEFAULT VOL SET line, select the desired volume setting, and activate the feature by setting VOLUME DEFAULT to ON. NOTE: Although volume is normally displayed in 0.5dB increments, the default volume setting only allows whole numbers. SEMI OSD TIME OUT: At this line you may program the amount of time (2 to 5 seconds) the two-line semi-OSD on-screen messages remain, or you may deactivate the semi-OSD display altogether if you find it distracting. These messages will continue to appear on the front panel of the receiver. FULL OSD TIME OUT: At this line you may program the amount of time (20, 30, 40 or 50 seconds) the full-OSD menus remain visible on screen. The full-OSD system may not be deactivated. DEFAULT SURR MODE: This setting determines how the AVR 147 will handle Dolby Digital and DTS sources. For the purposes of this setting, the default surround mode means the mode encoded in the program, such as Dolby Digital 5.1. With this setting ON, the receiver will always use the default surround mode encoded in the program. When this setting is changed to OFF, the receiver will use the surround mode you selected the last time this type of audio stream was detected. Dolby Digital 2.0 signals default to the Dolby Pro Logic II Movie mode, but you may select another Dolby surround mode manually. For PCM and analog sources, the factory default surround mode is Logic 7 Music. In general, the receiver will use the surround mode selected the last time that type of signal was received. OSD BACKGROUND: This setting allows you to choose between a blue or black background for the full-OSD menus. NOTE: It isnt possible to view video sources while the full-OSD menus are displayed. VFD HALF: Display is dimmed but still visible; the light inside the volume knob goes dark VFD OFF: Display goes completely dark except for Power Indicator to remind you that the receiver is turned on 2. Press the Set Button on the front panel and hold it for about 5 seconds. A message indicating the current brightness setting (see above) will appear in the display. Use the front-panel / Buttons to change the setting.
Macros are used to program sequences of up to 19 commands that are executed with a single button press. Macros are well-suited for power on and off commands, or to send out a favorite multidigit channel number with one button press, or to have the ability to send out a code sequence to control another device while the remote is operating one device but with more flexibility than the built-in punch-through controls. Some commands may not be programmed into macros: Mute, Dim, Channel Up/Down, or any of the surround mode commands. NOTE: Use caution when programming complicated macros. It isnt possible to program a pause or delay before sending commands after Power On, and the component may not be ready to respond to commands instantaneously after powering on. To program, or record a macro, follow these steps: 1. Simultaneously press and hold one of the four Macro Buttons or the Power On Button and the Mute Button to enter program mode. 2. Press the Input (or AVR) Selector for each device before you enter commands to be transmitted to that device. This step counts as one of the 19 commands allowed for each macro. NOTE: Even if you previously switched one of the dual-source Input Selectors (DVD/CD, TAPE/THE BRIDGE, HDMI 1/HDMI 2) to the primary or secondary source prior to programming the macro, the remote always requires you to press any of these selectors once to program the macro to select the primary source and twice for the secondary source. 3. For the Power On command, do not press the Power On button. Press the Mute Button instead. 4. Press the Power Off Button to program the Power Off command. 5. Press the Sleep Button to end the programming process. It isnt possible to edit a command within a macro. However, you may erase the macro as follows:
Resetting the Remote
To reset the remote to its factory defaults, simultaneously press and hold any Input Selector and the 0 Numeric Key. When the Program LED flashes in amber enter the code 333. When the green LED goes out, the remote will have been fully reset.
There may be instances when you wish to fully reset the AVR 147 to its factory defaults, or the unit may behave erratically after a power surge. To correct erratic behavior, first try turning the Master Power Switch off and unplugging the AC Power Cord for at least 3 minutes. Plug the cord back in and turn the receiver back on. If this doesnt help, try a system reset. NOTES: A system reset erases all user configurations, including speaker and level settings and tuner presets. After a reset, you will need to re-enter all of these settings. The RS-232 Reset Button on the rear panel of the AVR 147 does not perform a system reset. DO NOT press the RS-232 Reset Button. To reset the AVR 147, place the receiver in Standby mode (press the front-panel Standby/On Switch so that the Power Indicator turns amber). Then press and hold the front-panel Tone Mode Button for at least 5 seconds until the RESET message appears in the display. If the receiver still does not function correctly after a processor reset, contact an authorized Harman Kardon service center for assistance.
