This section will briefly review different types of cables and connections that you may use to set up your system.
Speaker cables carry an amplified signal from the receivers speaker terminals to each loudspeaker. Speaker cables 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 245 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.
Preout Figure 3 Subwoofer
Connecting Source Devices to the AVR
The AVR 245 is designed to process audio and video input signals, playing back the audio and displaying the video on a television or monitor connected to the AVR. These signals originate in what are known as source devices, including your DVD player, CD player, DVR (digital video recorder) or other recorder, tape deck, game console, cable or satellite television box or MP3 player. Although the tuner is built into the AVR, it also counts as a source, even though no external connections are needed, other than the FM and AM antennas and the XM antenna module. Separate connections are required for the audio and video portions of the signal. The types of connections used depend upon whats available on the source device, and for video signals, the capabilities of your video display.
Figure 1 Binding-Post Speaker Terminals With Banana Plugs
There are two formats for audio connections: digital and analog. Digital audio signals are of higher quality, and are required for listening to sources encoded with digital surround modes, such as Dolby Digital and DTS. There are two types of digital audio connections: coaxial and optical. Either type of digital audio connection may be used for each source device, but never both simultaneously for the same source. However, its okay to make both analog and digital audio connections at the same time to the same source. The analog audio connection is strongly recommended if you intend to use the source with the multiroom system. Its required if you will be using the multiroom preamp outputs with an external amplifier to power your remote speakers, as the AVR 245s multiroom system is not capable of converting the digital signal to analog format. Its suggested that you also use the analog audio connections when using the surround back/multiroom speaker outputs, in case another two-channel digital audio source is in use in the main listening area. The AVR 245 is only capable of processing one PCM source at a time. If you wish to record materials from DVDs or other copy-protected sources, you may only do so using analog connections. Remember to comply with all copyright laws, if you choose to make a copy for your own personal use.
Component video cable
Figure 12 Component Video
If its available on your video display, HDMI is recommended as the best quality connection, followed by component video, S-video and then composite video.
The AVR 245 uses separate terminals for the included FM and AM antennas that provide proper reception for the tuner. The FM antenna uses a 75-ohm F-connector. See Figure 13.
Figure 9 HDMI Connection
The AM loop antenna needs to be assembled. Then connect the two leads to the screw terminals on the receiver. See Figure 14.
Analog Video Connections
There are three types of analog video connections: composite video, S-video and component video. Composite video is the basic connection most commonly available. The jack is usually color-coded yellow, and looks like an analog audio jack, although it is important never to confuse the two. Do not plug a composite video cable into an analog or coaxial digital audio jack, or vice versa. Both the chrominance (color) and luminance (intensity) components of the video signal are transmitted using a single cable. See Figure 10.
Composite video cable Figure 10 Composite Video
Figure 14 AM Antenna
RS-232 Serial Port
The RS-232 serial port on the AVR 245 is used only for data. If Harman Kardon releases a software upgrade for the receivers operating system at some time in the future, the upgrade may be downloaded to the AVR using this port. Complete instructions will be provided at that time.
S-video, or separate video, transmits the chrominance and luminance components using separate wires contained within a single cable. The plug on an S-video cable contains four metal pins, plus a plastic guide pin. Be careful to line up the plug correctly when you insert it into the jack on the receiver, source or video display. See Figure 11.
Before you begin to connect cables, it is important to set up your speakers in their correct locations in the room. Optimally, the speakers should be placed in a circle with the listening position at its center. The distance from the listening position to the video display forms the radius of the circle. The speakers should be angled so that they directly face the listening position.
HDMI 2 Source
The HDMI 2 source is used with a second device that is capable of outputting digital video through an HDMI connection, such as an HD-DVD or Blu-ray Disc player. The HDMI 2 source is not used with any of the 2-channel analog audio or video inputs on the AVR 245. Since the AVR 245 is not capable of processing either the audio or video signal transmitted via the HDMI connection, you will need to connect the sources optical digital audio output to the Optical 2 digital audio input on the AVR 245, or use the 6-/8-channel inputs. See Figure 27. You will also need to make sure your video display is HDMI-capable, and for many source devices, the display must be HDCP-compliant (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) in order to display copy-protected materials. If your video display is equipped with a DVI (Digital Video Interface) input, you may use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter (not included).
Figure 24 DVD A/V, Digital Audio and Component Video Inputs
If your DVD player plays multichannel lossless discs, such as SACD or DVD-Audio, or when an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray Disc player is used, you will also need to connect the 6- or 8-channel analog audio outputs on the player to the 6-/8-channel analog audio inputs on the receiver, in order to enjoy these discs to their fullest. See Figure 25.
Figure 27 HDMI 2 and Optical 2 Inputs
The CD source is used for a strictly audio device, such as a CD player. Referring to Table 2, connect your CD player to the CD Analog Audio inputs and to any available digital audio input. See Figure 28.
Figure 25 6-/8-Channel Analog Audio Inputs
HDMI 1 Source
The HDMI 1 source is used with a device that is capable of outputting digital video through an HDMI connection, such as an HD-DVD or Blu-ray Disc player or HDTV tuner. The HDMI 1 source is not used with any of the 2-channel analog audio or video inputs on the AVR 245. Since the AVR 245 is not capable of processing either the audio or video signal transmitted via the HDMI connection, you will need to connect the sources coaxial digital audio output to the Coaxial 2 digital audio input on the AVR 245, or use the 6-/8-channel inputs. See Figure 26. You will also need to make sure your video display is HDMI-capable, and for many source devices, the display must be HDCP-compliant (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) in order to display copy-protected materials. If your video display is equipped with a DVI (Digital Video Interface) input, you may use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter (not included).
Figure 28 CD Audio Inputs and Digital Audio Inputs
No video connections are needed.
The Tape source is used for audio-only recorders, such as a CDR, MiniDisc or cassette deck. Referring to Table 2, connect your recorder to the Tape Analog Audio inputs and outputs, and to any available digital audio input (and corresponding digital audio output). See Figure 29.
Figure 29 Tape Audio Inputs and Outputs, and Digital Audio Inputs and Outputs
Figure 26 HDMI and Coaxial 2 Inputs
Remember to connect the output jacks on your recorder to the Tape or digital audio input jacks on the AVR, and the input jacks on your recorder to the Tape or digital audio output jacks on the AVR. No video connections are needed.
With Harman Kardons optional The Bridge, you can listen to audio stored on your iPod (not included), use your AVR 245 remote control to operate the iPod, and even charge the iPod while its docked in The Bridge. Simply plug the proprietary cable from The Bridge into the special The Bridge/DMP connector on the rear of the AVR 245. See Figure 30. Refer to the owners manual for The Bridge to select the appropriate insert to match your iPod.
Figure 30 The Bridge/DMP Connector
If you used S-video for any sources, or if all of your sources used HDMI or component video, connect the S-video Monitor output on the receiver to an S-video input on your display. See Figure 33. Make a note of how the input is labeled. If you used composite video for any sources, but not component video or S-video, connect the composite video Monitor output on the receiver to a composite video input on the display. See Figure 33. Again, make a note of how this input is labeled on the display.
Figure 33 S-Video and Composite Video Monitor Outputs
Step Five Connect Video Display
Only video connections should be made between the receiver and your video display (TV), unless your TV is the source for your television programming (see Video 3 Source on page 24). You will need to make a video connection for each type of video used for your sources. In addition, even if you didnt use S-video or composite video for any of your sources, one of these video monitor connections is required to view the AVR 245s on-screen menus and displays. First, determine what types of video your display is capable of handling. Remember that HDMI is preferred, followed by component video, S-video and then composite video. Ideally, this guided you in selecting the video connections for your sources. Next, note which types of video connections you used for your source devices. Make sure you didnt use a better type of video connection for a source than your video display can handle. If so, you will need to disconnect the source and use a video connection thats compatible with your display. If you used an HDMI video connection for any of your sources, then connect the HDMI Output on the AVR to an HDMI input on your video display. See Figure 31. As mentioned previously, you will need to make a separate digital audio connection from each source device to the AVR 245, and you will also need to consult the owners guide for your television to learn the proper procedure for disabling or muting the audio.
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. You may plug one device into the AC Switched Accessory Outlet on the rear of the AVR 245. See Figure 34. Make sure this device draws no more than 50 watts. The device should have its mechanical or master power switch turned on, and it will power on any time the AVR 245 is turned on.
Figure 34 Switched AC Accessory Outlet
Before plugging the AVR 245s 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.
Figure 31 HDMI Output
Step Seven Insert Batteries in Remote
The AVR 245 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 35, making sure to observe the correct polarity.
If you used component video for any sources, connect the Component Video Monitor outputs on the receiver to one set of component video inputs on your display. See Figure 32. Make a note of how these inputs are labeled on the display.
Figure 32 Component Video Monitor Outputs
The AVR 245s remote is factory-programmed to control an iPod docked in The Bridge and many Harman Kardon DVD and CD players. If you have other source devices in your system, follow these steps to program the correct codes into the remote. 1. Using the codes in Tables A9A16 of the Appendix, look up the product type (e.g., DVD, cable TV box) and the brand name of your source. The number(s) listed is/are potential candidates for the correct code set for your particular device. 2. Turn on your source device. 3. This step places the remote in program mode, and varies slightly, depending on which Input Selector is being programmed. Refer to Figure 36. a) DVD, Tape, Video 1, Video 2, Video 3 and Video 4 Sources: Press and hold the Input Selector until the Program Indicator LED starts to flash, then release it. Follow the directions in Step 4, below. b) CD Source: Press the DVD/CD Input Selector twice quickly so that it turns green, hold it until the Program LED starts to flash, then release. Follow the directions in Step 4, below. c) HDMI 1 Source: Press and hold the Input Selector until it turns red, then release it. Next, press the Input Selector that corresponds to the device type you want to program into the HDMI 1 mode, i.e., DVD, VCR or CBL/SAT. Then follow the directions in Step 4, below. d) HDMI 2 Source: Press and release the Input Selector once, then quickly press the Input Selector again so that it turns green. Hold it until the Program LED starts to flash, then release it. Next, press the Input Selector that corresponds to the device type you want to program into the HDMI 2 mode, i.e., DVD, VCR or CBL/SAT. Then follow the directions in Step 4, below. NOTE: When assigning a device type to the HDMI 1 or 2 Input Selectors, press the selector for the device type extremely lightly to avoid inadvertently exiting program mode.
Turning On the AVR 245
Gently press the Master Power Switch until the word OFF is no longer visible. The Power Indicator above the two power switches should light up in amber. This indicates that the AVR is in Standby mode and is ready to be turned on. Normally, you may leave the Master Power Switch in the ON position, even when the receiver is not being used. See Figure 57.
You may program the AVR to play for up to 90 minutes and then turn off automatically using the sleep timer. Press the Sleep Button on the remote, and the time until turn-off will be displayed. See Figure 60. Each additional press of the Sleep Button will reduce the time until turn-off by 10 minutes, until the OFF setting is reached, which disables the sleep timer.
Figure 57 Power Switches
There are several ways in which the AVR 245 may be turned on: a) Press the Standby/On Switch on the front panel. See Figure 57. b) Press the Source Select Button on the front panel. See Figure 58.
Figure 60 Sleep Button
When the sleep timer has been set, the front-panel display will automatically dim to half-brightness. If you press any button on the remote or front panel, the display will return to full-brightness. The display will dim again several seconds after your last command. If you press the Sleep Button after the timer has been set, the remaining time until turn-off will be displayed. You may press the Sleep Button to change the time until turn-off. Pressing and holding the Sleep Button will disable the sleep timer, and the SLEEP OFF message will appear.
Figure 58 Source Select Button
The volume may be adjusted either by turning the knob on the front panel (clockwise to increase volume or counterclockwise to decrease volume), or by pressing the Volume Control Buttons on the remote. See Figure 61. The volume is displayed as a negative number of decibels (dB) below the 0dB reference point, and may be changed in 0.5dB increments. Unlike some volume controls on other products, 0dB is the maximum volume for the AVR 245. Although its physically possible to turn the volume to a higher level, doing so may damage your hearing and your speakers. For certain more dynamic audio materials, even 0dB may be too high, allowing for damage to equipment.
c) Using the remote, press any one of these buttons: AVR, DVD, CD, TAPE/The Bridge, HDMI 1/HDMI 2, VID1, VID2, VID3, VID4, XM, AM/FM, 6/8CH. See Figure 59.
Figure 71 Storing a Preset Station
XM Radio Operation
XM Radio is a satellite-delivered service that offers hundreds of program channels, as well as local traffic and weather information for select cities. The AVR 245 is XM Ready, which means that it is able to receive the XM service when an optional XM antenna module is connected and the service activated. As of this writing, the Audiovox CNP 1000 Connect and Play module for home audio use and the XM Mini-Tuner and Home Dock (Models CNP-2000 and CNP-2000H) are compatible with the AVR 245. Additional modules may become available in the future. Modules produced for automotive, or mobile, use are not compatible with the AVR 245. NOTE: To listen to XM Radio using the AVR 245, you will need to purchase an XM antenna module and subscription, and you will need to activate your module. (Note that XM service is not available in Alaska or Hawaii.) Visit the XM Radio Web site at www.xmradio.com for more information. Plug the module into the XM Antenna Jack on the rear of the AVR 245. Place the antenna module so that it has a clear view through a southfacing window in order to obtain reception from the XM satellite. Select XM Radio as the source in one of the following three ways (see Figure 72): 1. Press the Source Selector button on the front panel repeatedly until XM Radio is selected. XM will only appear in the Information Display. 2. Press the Tuner Band Button (front-panel or remote) repeatedly until XM Radio is selected. 3. Press the XM Radio Input Selector on the remote.
Figure 72 XM Radio Source Selection
Two-channel analog and digital audio signals, as well as composite and S-video signals, are normally available at the appropriate recording outputs. Thus, to make a recording, you need only make sure to connect your audio or video recorder to the appropriate output jacks, as described in the Installation section, insert blank media and make sure the recorder is turned on and recording while the source is playing. NOTES: 1. Analog audio signals are not converted to digital form, and digital audio signals are not converted to analog audio form. However, you may record a coaxial or optical digital audio source using either type of digital audio output. 2. Only PCM digital audio signals are available for recording. Proprietary formats such as Dolby Digital and DTS may not be recorded using the digital audio connections, although if the source is connected to the AVR using the analog audio connections, an analog recording may be made. 3. Component video sources are not available for recording. 4. Please make certain that you are aware of any copyright restrictions on any material you record. Unauthorized duplication of copyrighted materials is prohibited by federal law.
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. We suggest that you experiment with the modes to find a setting that meets your needs.
Whenever a multichannel Dolby Digital or DTS signal is detected, the AVR 245 will automatically switch to that mode, unless the DEFAULT SURR MODE setting in the System Setup menu has been changed to OFF. You may observe that other surround modes are available for use with the multichannel digital bitstreams. If you would prefer the AVR 245 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 245, 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 245 by doing so. NOTE: In order to access 6.1- and 7.1-channel modes, such as Dolby Digital EX, DTS-ES, Logic 7 (7.1 modes), DTS Neo:6 (6.1 modes), the 6-channel implementations of Hall 1, Hall 2 and Theater and 7-channel Stereo, you must enable the surround back channels as explained in the Manual Setup section. You should not enable these channels if you dont have surround back speakers in your system.
Step One Determine Speaker Size
Without using EzSet+, the AVR 245 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). The frequency response for your subwoofer will cover 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 245 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 41). 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.
Figure 80 Manual Setup Menu Screen
EzSet ACTIVATE: The first line in the Manual Setup menu indicates whether you have run EzSet+ and whether the settings obtained by EzSet+ have been activated as the starting point for manual setup.
If you have run EzSet+ but you wish to start the setup process from scratch, use the / Buttons to move the cursor to this line, and then use the / Buttons to change the setting to NO. The next four lines of the Manual Setup menu are used to access the four submenus used during the setup process. Each submenus settings are dependent upon the previous submenu, and therefore we recommend you visit the menus in the order shown. LEFT/RIGHT: This line tells the AVR 245 the capabilities of your front left and right speakers. Use the / Buttons to select either SMALL or LARGE for these speakers. CENTER: Move the cursor to the line for the center speaker, and use the / Buttons to select a setting for this speaker. NOTE: If the receiver is currently in one of the Logic 7 surround modes, which will be the case the first time you turn on the receiver, you wont be able to set the center speaker to LARGE, due to the requirements of the Logic 7 processor. You may use the SMALL setting instead. As you listen to the receiver, if you find the SMALL setting is not satisfactory, change the surround mode to one of the Dolby Pro Logic II modes (using the Surround Select menu, accessible from the Master Menu), and return to this menu to change the center speaker to the LARGE setting. SURROUND: Move the cursor to the line for the side surround speakers, and use the / Buttons to select the SMALL, LARGE or NONE setting for these two speakers. SURR BACK: Use the / Buttons to select the SMALL, LARGE or NONE setting for the surround back speakers. The AVR 245 is one of the few receivers in its class to include multiroom capability. With assignable surround back amplifier channels, setting up a multiroom system is more convenient than ever, no longer requiring an external amplifier to power the remote speakers. This line indicates whether the surround back channels are in use with the multiroom system by indicating MAIN when the multiroom system is not in use and MULTI when it is. It is not possible to change the status of the surround back channels from this menu; the MAIN/MULTI indication is for information only. The status may only be changed by activating or deactivating the multiroom system using the MULTI ROOM SETUP menu as described in the Multiroom Operation section on page 53. SUBWOOFER: Move the cursor to the line for the subwoofer, which is programmed a little differently. The subwoofers size setting depends upon how you programmed the front left and right speakers. If you set the front speakers to SMALL, the subwoofer setting will be SUB, and you wont be able to change it. All low-frequency information will always be sent to the subwoofer. If you dont have a subwoofer, you may wish to set your front speakers to LARGE so as not to lose this information, but you may need to lower the volume to avoid adverse results. We recommend that you either upgrade to full-range speakers or add a subwoofer to your system at the earliest opportunity. If you set the front speakers to LARGE, you may select from three possible settings for the subwoofer. L/R+LFE: This setting sends all low-frequency information to the subwoofer, including both information that would normally be played through the front left and right speakers and the special low-frequency effects (LFE) channel information.
Figure 86 Multiroom Setup Menu Screen
MULTI ROOM: This line is used to turn the multiroom system on or off. When no one is listening in the remote room, leave this setting at the default of OFF. MULTI IN: This line indicates the source input selected for the remote zone. You may select any source input for which a device has been connected to the AVR 245, even when a different source is being enjoyed in the main listening area. However, if the tuner has been selected for simultaneous operation in both the main listening area and the remote zone, listeners in both areas will hear the same radio station. MULTI VOL: The volume is controlled separately for the remote zone. SB AMPS: This line is for information only and cannot be changed. When the multiroom system is turned off, this line will always display the MAIN setting. When the multiroom system is turned on, this line will always display the MULTI setting, reflecting that the surround back channels are always assigned to the remote zone when the multiroom system is used. The three multiroom settings may also be accessed by pressing the Multiroom Button on the remote (see Figure 87). The first press displays the MULTI ON/OFF setting, which functions the same as the first line of the MULTI ROOM SETUP menu. You may use the / Buttons to scroll to the MULTI INPUT and MULTI LEVEL settings, which perform the same functions as the MULTI IN and MULTI VOL lines of the MULTI ROOM SETUP menu. For each of the three settings, press the Set Button to adjust the setting, using the / Buttons to select the desired option.
Figure 87 Multiroom Button
The AVR 245 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 88.
Operating the Multiroom System

Avoid installing this unit where foreign object may fall onto this unit and/or this unit may be exposed to liquid dripping or splashing. On the top of this unit, do not place: Burning objects (i.e. candles), as they may cause fire, damage to this unit, and/or personal injury. Containers with liquid in them, as they may fall and liquid may cause electrical shock to the user and/or damage to this unit. Do not cover this unit with a newspaper, tablecloth, curtain, etc. in order not to obstruct heat radiation. If the temperature inside this unit rises, it may cause fire, damage to this unit, and/or personal injury. Install this unit near the AC outlet and where the AC power plug can be reached easily. This unit is not disconnected from the AC power source as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if this unit itself is turned off. This state is called the standby mode. In this state, this unit is designed to consume a very small quantity of power. WARNING. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE. Verify Line Voltage Before Use Your AVR has been designed for use with 220-240-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 dealer before plugging the unit into a wall outlet. 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 depot with a cord meeting factory specifications. 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. Do Not Open the Cabinet There are no user-serviceable components inside this product. Opening the cabinet may present a shock hazard, and any modification to the product will void your guarantee. If water or any metal object such as a paper clip, wire or a staple accidentally falls inside the unit, disconnect it from the AC power source immediately, and consult an authorized service station. Installation Location To assure proper operation and to avoid the potential for safety hazards, place the unit on a firm and level surface. When placing the unit on a shelf, be certain that the shelf and any mounting hardware can support the weight of the product. Make certain that proper space is provided both above and below the unit for ventilation. If this product will be installed in a cabinet or other enclosed area, make certain that there is sufficient air movement within the cabinet. Under some circumstances a fan may be required. Do not place the unit directly on a carpeted surface. Avoid installation in extremely hot or cold locations, or an area that is exposed to direct sunlight or heating equipment. Avoid moist or humid locations. Do not obstruct the ventilation slots on the top of the unit, or place objects directly over them. Due to the weight of the AVR 245 and the heat generated by the amplifiers, there is the remote possibility that the rubber padding on the bottom of the 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 cau-tion 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. Cleaning When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft, dry cloth. If necessary, wipe it with a soft cloth dampened with mild soapy water, then a fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe 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. 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.
The carton and shipping materials used to protect your new receiver during shipment were specially designed to cushion it from shock and vibration. We suggest that you save the carton and packing materials for use in shipping if you move, or should the unit ever need repair. To minimize the size of the carton in storage, you may wish to flatten it. This is done by carefully slitting the tape seams on the bottom and collapsing the carton. Other cardboard inserts may be stored in the same manner. Packing materials that cannot be collapsed should be saved along with the carton in a plastic bag. If you do not wish to save the packaging materials, please note that the carton and other sections of the shipping protection are recyclable. Please respect the environment and discard those materials at a local recycling center. It is important that you remove the protective plastic film from the front-panel lens. Leaving the film in place will affect the performance of your remote control.

Important Note for the Use of SCART-Cinch Adapters: When video sources are connected to the TV directly with a SCART cable, specific control signals apart from Audio/Video signals will be fed to the TV. These specific signals are: With all video sources, the signal for automatic input selection that switches the TV automatically to the appropriate input as soon as the video source is started. And with DVD players, the signals automatically turning the TV to 4:3/16:9 format (with 16:9 TVs or with 4:3 TVs with selectable 16:9 format) and turning the RGB video decoder of the TV on or off, depending on the DVD players setting. With any adapter cable, these control signals will be lost and the appropriate setting of the TV must be made manually.
Note for RGB signal with SCART: If you use a unit providing RGB signals on a SCART output (as e.g. most DVD players do) and you want to use that RGB signal, this SCART output must be connected directly to your TV. Although the AVR can switch three-way video signals (like component signals Y/Pb/Pr), most TVs need separate sync signals for RGB (also with SCART) that cannot be switched and provided by the AVR. RGB signals can be pathed through the AVR only when no separate sync signal is needed (see last Video Connection Note on page 15).
INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS 15
System and Power Connections
The AVR 245 is designed for flexible use with multiroom systems, external control components and power amplifiers. Main Room Remote Control Extension If the receiver is placed behind a solid or smoked glass cabinet door, the obstruction may prevent the remote sensor from receiving commands. In this event, the remote sensor of any Harman Kardon or other compatible device, not covered by the door, or an optional remote sensor may be used. Connect the Remote IR Output of that device or the output of the remote sensor to the Remote IR Input jack V. If other components are also prevented from receiving remote commands, only one sensor is needed. Simply use this units sensor or a remote eye by running a connection from the Remote IR Output jack U to the Remote IR Input jack on Harman Kardon or other compatible equipment. Multiroom IR Link The key to remote room operation is to link the remote room to the AVRs location with wire for an infrared receiver and speakers or an amplifier. The remote room IR receiver (this can be an optional IR receiver or any other remotable Harman Kardon device in the remote room with IR sensor integrated) should be connected to the AVR via standard coaxial cable. Connect the Remote IR Output of the device or of the optional sensor with the Multiroom IR Input jack H on the AVRs rear panel. If other Harman Kardon compatible source equipment is part of the main room installation, the Remote IR Output jack U on the rear panel should be connected to the IR IN jack on that source device. This will enable the remote room location to control source equipment functions. NOTE: All remotely controlled components must be linked together in a daisy chain. Connect the IR OUT jack of one unit to the IR IN of the next to establish this chain. Multiroom Audio Connections Depending on your system`s requirement and distance from the AVR to the remote room, three options are available for audio connection: Option 1: Use high-quality, shielded audio interconnect phono cable from the AVRs location to the remote room. In the remote room, connect the interconnect cable to a stereo power amplifier. The amplifier will be connected to the rooms speakers. At the AVR, plug the audio interconnect cables into the Multiroom Output Jacks W on the AVRs rear panel. Option 2: Place the amplifier that will provide power to the remote location speakers in the same room as the AVR, and connect the Multiroom Output jacks W on the rear panel of the AVR to the audio input of the remote room amplifier. Use the appropriate speaker wire to connect the optional power amplifier to the remote speakers. High-quality wire of at least 2.5 mm2 is recommended for long multiroom connections. Option 3: Taking advantage of the AVRs builtin seven-channel amplifier, it is possible to use two of the amplifier channels to power speakers in the remote room. When using this option you will not be able to use the full 7.1-channel capabilities of the AVR in the main listening room, but you will be able to add another listening room without additional external power amplifiers. To use the internal amplifiers to power a remote zone, connect the speakers for the remote room location to the Surround Back/Multiroom Speaker Outputs O. Before using the remote room you will need to configure the amplifiers for surround operation by changing a setting in the Multiroom menu, following the instructions shown on page 43. NOTE: For all options, you may connect an optional IR sensor (Harman Kardon He 1000) in the remote room to the AVR via an appropriate cable. Connect the sensors cable to the Multiroom IR Input H on the AVR and use the remote to control the room volume. Alternatively, you may install an optional volume control between the output of the amplifiers and the speakers. NOTE: The AVR 245s multiroom system is only capable of distributing analog audio sources to the remote zone. Therefore, when connecting your digital audio equipment (e.g. CD or DVD players) as described on page 13, make sure to use both analog and digital audio connections to ensure that the devices will be available to the multiroom system. AC Power Connections This unit is equipped with one accessory AC outlets. It may be used to power Accessory devices, but it should not be used with high-current draw equipment such as power amplifiers. The total power draw to the Switched G Outlet must not exceed 50 watts. The Switched G outlet will receive power only when the unit is on completely. This is recommended for devices that have no power switch or a mechanical power switch that may be left in the ON position. NOTE: Many audio and video products go into a Standby mode when they are used with switched outlets, and cannot be fully turned on using the outlet alone without a remote control command. The AVR draws significantly more current than other household devices such as computers that use removable power cords. For that reason, it is important that only the cord supplied with the unit (or a direct replacement of identical capacity) be used. Once the power cord is connected, you are almost ready to enjoy the AVR 245s incredible power and fidelity!
Using the On-Screen Display
When making the following adjustments, you may find them easier to make via the units onscreen display system. These easy-to-read displays give you a clear picture of the current status of the unit and facilitate speaker, delay, input or digital selection you are making. To view the on-screen displays, make certain you have made a connection from the Video Monitor Out jack B on the rear panel to the composite or S-Video input of your TV or projector. In order to view the AVRs displays, the correct video input must be selected on your video display. Note that the on-screen menus are not available when a component video display is in use. IMPORTANT NOTE: When viewing the on-screen menus using a CRT-based projector, plasma display or any direct-view CRT monitor or television, it is important that they not be left on the screen for an extended period of time. As with any video display, but particularly with projectors, constant display of a static image such as these menus or video game images may cause the image to be permanently burned into the CRT. This type of damage is not covered by the AVR warranty and may not be covered by the projector TV sets warranty. The AVR has two on-screen display modes, Semi-OSD and Full-OSD. When making configuration adjustments, it is recommended that the Full-OSD mode be used. This will place a complete status report or option listing on the screen, making it easier to view the available options and make the settings on the screen. The Semi-OSD mode uses one-line displays only. Note that when the full OSD system is in use, the menu selections are not shown in the Information Display. When the full OSD menu system is used, OSD O N will appear in the Main Information Display to remind you that a video display must be used.
First Turn On
You are now ready to power up the AVR to begin these final adjustments. 1. Plug the Power Cable I into an unswitched AC outlet. 2. Press the Main Power Switch 1 in until it latches and the word OFF on the top of the switch disappears inside the front panel. Note that the Power Indicator 3 will turn orange, indicating that the unit is in the Standby mode. 3. Remove the protective plastic film from the main front-panel lens. If left in place, the film may affect the performance of your remote control. 4. Install the three supplied AAA batteries in the remote as shown. Be certain to follow the (+) and () polarity indicators that are on the top of the battery compartment.
The AVR 245 features an advanced memory system that enables you to establish different configurations for the speaker configuration, digital input, surround mode, delay times, crossover frequencies and speaker setting for each input source. To ease the speaker setting, the same speaker setting can also be made for all inputs. This flexibility enables you to custom tailor the way in which you listen to each source and have the AVR memorize them. This means, for example, that you may associate different surround modes and analog or digital inputs with different sources, or set different speaker configurations with the resultant changes to the bass management system or the use of the center speaker and/or the Subwoofer. Once these settings are made, they will automatically be recalled whenever you select that input.
Table Default Digital Audio Assignments If you used a digital audio connection for another source, you will need to change this setting to assign the correct digital audio input to the source, even if you also connected the analog audio outputs of the source to the receiver. Move the cursor to this line, and press the / Buttons until the correct digital input appears. Some digital video input sources, such as a cable box or HDTV set-top may change between analog and digital outputs, depending on which channel is in use. The AVRs Auto Polling feature allows you to avoid losing the audio feed when this happens by permitting both analog and digital connections to the same source on the AVR. Digital audio is the default, and the unit will automatically switch to the analog audio if the digital audio stream stops. In cases where only a digital source is used, you may wish to disable the Auto Polling feature to prevent the AVR from trying to find an analog source when the digital source is paused. To turn Auto Polling off for any input, first make certain that the cursor is pointing to the AUTO POLL line on the menu screen. Next, press the / Navigation Button Ea so that OFF is highlighted in reverse video. Repeat the procedure at any time by highlighting O N to restore the Auto Polling feature. DMP SETTING: If you select DMP/The Bridge as your source input, you will notice that the AUDIO I N line of the INPUT SETUP menu has been replaced by the option G O T O DMP SETTING. See Figure 3. Figure 4 MODE: The first line of the DMP SETTING menu indicates that the iPod will be used to listen to music (or other audio materials). REPEAT: Set REPEAT to ONE, ALL or OFF to repeat one track, all tracks in an album or playlist, or not to repeat any tracks. SHUFFLE: Set SHUFFLE to SONGS to play all songs on the iPod in random order. The ALBUMS setting plays all albums in random order, with each albums tracks played in album order. RESUME: Set RESUME to O N to resume playback of a track from the point where it was interrupted by turning off the AVR, switching sources on the AVR, or removing the iPod from The Bridge. Set RESUME to OFF if you wish to restart play from the beginning of the track after interruptions. CHARGE IN ST-BY: Your iPod will automatically charge its battery while docked in The Bridge with the AVR turned on. Set CHARGE I N ST-BY to O N to enable charging even when the AVR is in Standby mode (but not completely off). When CHARGE I N ST-BY is set to OFF, the iPod will only charge when the AVR is turned on. Note: In order to access the DMP SETTING menu, you need to press the AVR Selector on the remote so that it operates the AVR 245. You may then press the OSD Button and use the Navigation and Set Buttons, as usual, with the on-screen menu system. When you are ready to return to operation of your iPod using the remote, remember to press the DMP/The Bridge Selector so that the transport and other controls operate The Bridge. To simplify use, you may wish to program two macros on your remote, one to select the AVR and issue the commands within the OSD system to display the DMP SETTING menu, and a second macro to remove the menu from the display and return the remote to operation of The Bridge. See the Macros section of the Advanced Functions section of the manual for more information on programming macros.
Automated Speaker Setup Using EzSet+
The AVR 245 is one of the first receivers in its class to offer automated speaker setup and system calibration. This process greatly simplifies the installation of your new receiver by using a series of test signals and the power of an advanced digital signal processing system to eliminate the need for manual adjustment of speaker size, crossover, delay and output level settings. With EzSet+ your new receiver even alerts you to errors in speaker connections that prevent a speaker from functioning. With EzSet+ you are able to calibrate your system in a fraction of the time it would take to enter the settings manually, and with results that rival those achieved with expensive test equipment and time-consuming procedures. The end result is a system calibration profile that enables your new receiver to deliver the best possible sound, no matter what type of speakers you have or what the dimensions of your listening room are. We recommend that you take advantage of the precision of EzSet+ to calibrate your system, but if desired you may also make any of the configu-
While this screen is visible, you may start and stop the calibration process, or monitor the progress of the measurements and view the results. When the screen first appears, you will see MEASUREMENT: STOP on the first line of the menu list. To start the EzSet+ test process, you must first tell the system how many speakers are in your system. To do that, choose one of these two options: If your system includes a full complement of seven main speakers (front left/center/front right/surround right/surround back right/surround back left/surround left) and a subwoofer, press the / Navigation Buttons Ea so that 7.1 appears to the right of MEASUREMENT, and then press the Set Button F to start EzSet+. If your system includes a traditional surround speaker complement of five main speakers (front left/center/ front right/surround right/ surround left) and a subwoofer, press the / Navigation Buttons Ea so that 5.1 appears to the right of MEASUREMENT, and then press the Set Button F to start EzSet+. To stop the calibration process at any time, press the / Navigation Buttons D to move the on-screen cursors to the MEASUREMENT line; press the / Navigation Buttons Ea so that STOP appears and press the Set Button F. sage in the last line of the menu screen change as the volume level is adjusted. Speaker Size: The measurements and calculations for this test take place at the same time as the test signals are circulated to calculate the output levels, and they are used to determine whether the speakers in your system are large or small for the purposes of bass management. (If desired, you may use the results of the automated testing as a baseline and then make manual adjustments to the speaker size settings on a source-independent basis, following the instructions shown on page 25-31.) When this test is complete, an output level adjustment number will be shown to the right of the SPEAKER SIZE line on the menu screen. Speaker Crossover: The measurements and calculations for this test take place at the same time as the test signal is circulated to calculate the levels, and they are used to determine the crossover setting for each speaker in your system to create a seamless transition between the frequencies sent to your main speakers and subwoofer (if available). If desired, you may use the results of the automated testing as a baseline and then make manual adjustments to the crossover settings on a source-independent basis, following the instructions shown on page 25-31. When this test is complete, a crossover frequency will be shown to the right of the SPEAKER X-OVER line on the menu screen. Step 9: When all measurements are successfully completed, the test signals will stop and a TEST DONE UNPLUG MIC message will appear in the second line of the on-screen menu listings.
Figure 7e Speaker Check: The system will circulate a test signal to determine which channels have a speaker connected. During this test, you will see the name of each channel position displayed while a signal is sent to that speaker. NOTE: While this test detects whether a speaker is connected to a particular output, it cannot determine whether the speaker is in the correct position. (For example, it can tell whether a speaker is connected to the Surround Right output, but it cannot tell whether the speaker is on the right or left side of your listening room.) For that reason, we strongly recommend that you try to listen as the tone circulates, matching the name shown for each channel to the location of the speaker. If a tone is heard from a speaker position that does not match the on-screen message, stop EzSet+, exit the menus, turn your receiver off and check for proper speaker connections on the rear panel before resuming the setup. When this test is complete, YES will be shown to the right of SPEAKER CHECK on the menu screen. Speaker Delay: This test will circulate the tones again as the name of each channel is shown to measure the distance from the microphone to each speaker. The results of these tests will be used to set the delay time settings for each active speaker position. When this test is complete, a speaker-to-microphone (listening position) distance will be shown to the right of SPEAKER DELAY line on the menu screen. Speaker Level: This test circulates a test signal and measures the output from each active speaker position. The results of the measurements are used to adjust the individual channel outputs as needed, so that they are identical. This is an essential element of ensuring that surround sound fields are properly reproduced. If desired, you may use the results of the automated testing as a baseline and then make manual adjustments to trim the output levels to your personal taste, following the instructions shown on page 25-31. When this test is complete, an output level adjustment number will be shown to the right of SPEAKER LEVEL line on the menu screen.
Figure 7d Step 8: Once EzSet+ has been started, you will hear test signals circulate among all of the speakers as the system sets the master level, checks to see where there are speakers, sets the distance measurement and calculates delay time settings, sets the speaker size, and sets the speaker crossover point. During the measurement and calibration process, you may observe the progress of the testing by reading the messages that appear in the second line of the menu listing. When the EzSet+ screen first appears, it contains a series of dashes, but as the test and measurement proceeds, you will see the following messages as the individual measurements are taken: System Level: A SETTING VOLUME message will appear to indicate that the system is setting the overall volume level to the proper level as a prelude to testing the individual channels. During this test, you will see a mes24 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
With the MASTER MENU on screen, press the Button n until the cursor is pointing to the MANUAL SETUP line, and press the Set Button p. The MANUAL SETUP submenu will appear (see Figure 8).
Figure 8 Figure 7g When you have successfully completed the EzSet+ process and made any needed adjustments to the input and surround mode configurations, your receiver is ready for use. If you do not wish to make any manual adjustments to the settings, you may skip the rest of this section and proceed to the Basic Operation section of this manual on page 32 to learn how to operate AVR 245. For those situations where you may wish to make a change to the settings entered by EzSet+, follow the instructions on the following pages. The first line of the MANUAL SETUP menu indicates whether EzSet+ has been run and its settings saved. If this line indicates YES, then you will be able to see the settings determined by EzSet+ as you view the SPEAKER SIZE, SPEAKER X-OVER, DELAY ADJUST and CHANNEL ADJUST submenus. You may use the / Buttons n to move the cursor to point to this line, and then use the / Buttons oa to change this setting to N O if you wish to reset the speaker size, crossover, output level and delay settings to their factory defaults. Note: If you have forgotten to unplug the EzSet+ microphone, you will be unable to access the SPEAKER SIZE, SPEAKER X-OVER and DELAY ADJUST menus. Adjust the submenus in the MANUAL SETUP submenu in order, as some settings require that previous settings be established first.
Notes: When "Independent" is selected for the speaker settings (see below), they need to be made for each input individually and you can determine which speaker should be used depending on the input source selected. So its possible e.g. to turn off the Center and/or the Sub with any music source selected and to use them with any movie input source. With the currently selected input all speaker settings will be copied to all other surround modes (as far as speakers are used with them) and need not be repeated when another surround mode is selected with that input.
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION 25
It is easiest to enter the proper settings for the speaker setup through the SPEAKER SIZE menu (Figure 9). So press the OSD Button L to bring up the MASTER MENU (Figure 1), and then press the Button D three times so that the cursor is on the MANUAL SETUP line. At this point, press the Set Button F and select the SPEAKER SIZE menu (Figure 9). If you wish to customize the speaker size individually to each input, make certain that the cursor is on the BASS MGR line and press the / Buttons Ea so that INDEPENDENT appears in highlighted video. When this setting is entered all speaker size settings will be shown with their factory default size in the menu and all other inputs will turn to INDEPENDENT too. Now you should enter the speaker size settings prefered for the input selected, as described below. Remember that in this case the size settings just entered will apply to the current input ONLY, and you will need to go back to the INPUT menu to select another input, and then return to this menu page again to change the settings for the next input. Repeat the procedure for any input where you wish to have a set of speaker configuration different from the default settings. NOTE: When the INDEPENDENT setting is activated, you may assign different speaker size settings to each input to accommodate different bass management settings that match your preferences with the type of program material normally used with a particular source (for example, when movies are played from DVD and music from a CD player). However, the actual speaker crossover settings are set only once and do not change with the input selection. The reason is that, while bass management preferences may vary, the actual speakers remain the same, regardless of the bass-management and redirection settings. 2. Begin the speaker size setup process by making certain that the cursor is pointing toward the LEFT/RIGHT line, which sets the configuration for the front left and right speakers. If you wish to make a change to the front speakers configuration, press the / Buttons Ea so that either LARGE or SMALL appears, matching the appropriate description from the definitions shown above. When SMALL is selected, low-frequency front channel sounds will be sent only to the subwoofer output. If you choose this option and there is no subwoofer connected, you will not hear any lowfrequency sounds with front channel signals. When LARGE is selected, a full-range output will be sent to the front left and front right outputs. Depending on the choice made in the SUBWOOFER line in this menu (see below), the front left and right bass information may also be directed to the subwoofer. NOTE: When the front speakers are set to the
Surround Mode Chart
MODE DOLBY DIGITAL FEATURES Available only with digital input sources encoded with Dolby Digital data. It provides up to five separate main audio channels and a special dedicated Low Frequency Effects channel. Available when the receiver is configured for 6.1/7.1 channel operation, Dolby Digital EX is the latest version of Dolby Digital. When used with movies or other programs that have special encoding, Dolby Digital EX reproduces specially encoded soundtracks so that a full 6.1/7.1 soundfield is available. When the receiver is set for 6.1/7.1 operation and a Dolby Digital signal is present, the EX mode is automatically selected. Even if specific EX encoding is not available to provide the additional channel, the special algorithms will derive a 6.1/7.1 output. When the speaker configuration is set for 5.1-channel operation, the DTS 5.1 mode is available when DVD, audio-only music or laserdiscs encoded with DTS data are played. DTS 5.1 provides up to five separate main audio channels and a special dedicated low-frequency channel. When the speaker configuration is set for 6.1/7.1 operation, playback of a DTS-encoded program source will automatically trigger the selection of one of the two DTS-ES modes. Newer discs with special DTS-ES discrete encoding will be decoded to provide six discrete, full-bandwidth channels plus a separate low-frequency channel. All other DTS discs will be decoded using the DTS-ES Matrix mode, which creates a 6.1-channel sound field from the original 5.1-channel soundtrack. Dolby Pro Logic II is the latest version of Dolby Laboratorys benchmark surround technology that decodes full-range, discrete left, center right, right surround and left surround channels from matrix surround encoded programs and conventional stereo sources when an analog input or a digital input with PCM or Dolby Digital 2.0 recordings is in use. The Dolby Pro Logic II Movie mode is optimized for movie soundtracks that are recorded with matrix surround, by creating separate center, rear left and rear right signals. while the Pro Logic II Music mode should be used with musical selections that are recorded with matrix surround or even with normal stereo mode, creating separate rear left and rear right signals in any case. The Pro Logic II mode creates compelling five-channel surround sound from conventional stereo recordings. Game mode ensures that special effects are routed to the surround channels, while delivering their full impact using the subwoofer, thus fully immersing the game player in the universe of the video game. Dolby Pro Logic IIx is the latest extension of Dolby Pro Logic II technology that creates a discrete 6.1 and 7.1 sound field from matrix surround or two-channel stereo sources in systems configured for surround back speakers. Both Movie and Music versions of Pro Logic IIx are available. Movie, Music and Game versions of Pro Logic IIx are available. Game mode ensures that special effects are routed to the surround channels, while delivering their full impact using the subwoofer, thus fully immersing the game player in the universe of the video game. Exclusive to Harman Kardon for AV receivers, Logic 7 is an advanced mode that extracts the maximum surround information from either surround-encoded programs or conventional stereo material. Depending on the number of speakers in use and the selection made in the SURROUND SELECT menu, the 5.1 versions of Logic 7 modes are available when the 5.1 option is chosen, while the 7.1 versions of Logic 7 produce a full sound field presentation, including back surround speakers when the 6.1/7.1 option is chosen. The Logic 7 C (or Cinema) mode should be used with any source that contains Dolby Surround or similar matrix encoding. Logic 7 C delivers increased center-channel intelligibility, and more accurate placement of sounds with fades and pans that are much smoother and more realistic than with former decoding techniques. The Logic 7 M or Music mode should be used with analog or PCM stereo sources. Logic 7 M enhances the listening experience by presenting a wider front soundstage and greater rear ambience. Both Logic 7 modes also direct low-frequency information to the subwoofer (if installed and configured) to deliver maximum bass impact.
These indicators are the L/C/R/LFE/SL/SR/SBL/SBR letters that are inside the center boxes of the Speaker/Channel Input Indicators $ in the front panel Main Information Display. When a standard analog stereo or matrix surround signal is in use, only the L and R indicators will light, as analog signals have only left and right channels. Digital signals, however, may have one, two, five, six or seven separate channels, depending on the program material, the method of transmission and the way in which it was encoded. When a digital signal is playing, the letters in these indicators will light in response to the specific signal being received. It is important to note that although Dolby Digital, for example, is referred to as a 5.1 system, not all Dolby Digital DVDs or audio tracks selected on DVD or other Dolby

These modes are not available when the Surround Back channels have been configured for multiroom operatioin. ** The Surround Off mode is only available for ananlog sources or the tuner, and requires that the tone controls be removed from the circuitry for flat response. Otherwise, the DSP Surround Off mode may be selected when a two-channel presentation is desired.
Figure 13 With the SYSTEM SETUP menu on your video display, press the / Navigation Button D so that the cursor is pointed to the VFD FADE TIME OUT line. Next, press the / Navigation Button Ea so that the amount of time that you wish the displays to fade out after a button is pressed is shown. Once this time is set and the unit returned to normal operation, the displays will remain on for the time period selected whenever a button is pressed on the front panel or remote. After that time they will gradually fade out, with the exception of the lighting surrounding the Standby/On Switch 3, which remains on to remind you that the AVR is turned on. Note that if the displays have been turned completely off using the Dim Button, as shown on page 41, the Fade function will not operate. If you wish to make adjustments to other items on the SYSTEM SETUP menu, press the / Navigation Button D to place the cursor next to the desired item, or place the cursor next to the BACK T O MASTER MENU line and press the Set Button F to make an adjustment to another menu. If you have completed all adjustments, press the OSD Button L to exit the menu system.
SYSTEM SETUP 41
Full-OSD Time Out Adjustment
The FULL OSD menu system is used to simplify the setup and adjustment of the AVR using a series of on-screen menus. The factory default setting for these menus leaves them on the screen for 20 seconds after a period of inactivity before they disappear from the screen or Time Out. This Time Out is a safety measure to prevent the menu text from burning into the CRTs in your monitor or projector, which might happen if they were left on indefinitely. However, some viewers may prefer a slightly longer or shorter period before the Time Out display. To change the Full-OSD Time Out, you will need to make an adjustment in the SYSTEM SETUP menu (Figure 13). To start the adjustment, press the OSD button L to bring the MASTER MENU to the screen. Press the button D, until the on-screen cursor is next to the SYSTEM SETUP line. Press the Set Button F to enter the SYSTEM SETUP menu (Figure 13). At the SYSTEM SETUP menu make certain that the on-screen cursor is next to the FULL OSD TIME OUT line by pressing the / Buttons D as needed. Next, press the / buttons Ea until the desired time is displayed in seconds. Note that unlike most of the other options in this menu, this is a permanent setting change, and the time-out entry will remain in effect until it is changed, even when the unit is turned off. If you wish to make other adjustments in the menu, press the / Buttons D until the on-screen cursor is next to the desired setting or the BACK T O MASTER MENU line and press the Set button F. If you have no other adjustments to make, press the OSD Button L to exit the menu system. If you wish to leave the default so that the mode choice encoded in the disc is always used, no further action is needed. Simply leave the setting at the factory default of ON. To set the unit so that it responds to the last surround mode used when a Dolby Digital or DTS source is playing, press the / Buttons D so that the cursor is pointing to the DEFAULT SURR MODE line. Press the / Buttons Ea so that OFF appears, and the setting will change. The unit will now use the last mode, not the discs default for the two digitally encoded data streams. This setting does not apply to standard PCM digital inputs or to analog sources. In those cases, the unit will always apply the surround or processing mode that was last used for that input. If you wish to make other adjustments, press the / Buttons D until the on-screen cursor is next to the desired setting or the RETURN T O MASTER MENU line and press the Set Button F. If you have no other adjustments to make, press the OSD Button L to exit the menu system.
Macros enable you to easily repeat frequently used combinations of commands with the press of a single button on the AVRs remote control. Once programmed, a macro will send out up to 19 different remote codes in a pre-determined sequential order enabling you to automate the process of turning on your system, changing devices, or other common tasks. The AVRs remote can store up to five separate macro command sequences, one that is associated with the Power On button 3, and four more that are accessed by pressing the Macro buttons U. 1. To start programming a macro, press the Mute button c and the Macro button U to be programmed or the Power-On button 3 at the same time. Note that the latest selected Input Selector will light red, and the Program Indicator 2 will flash amber. 2. Enter the steps for the macro sequence by pressing the button for the actual command step. Although the macro may contain up to 19 steps, each button press, including those used to change devices, counts as a step. The Program Indicator 2 will flash green twice to confirm each button press as you enter commands. NOTE: While entering commands for Power On of any device during a macro sequence, press the Mute button c. DO NOT press the Power ON button 3. Remember to press the appropriate Input Selector button 4 before functions are changed to another device. This is also needed for the AVR Selector button 5 itself, as long as its not lit red and AVR functions shall be programmed. 3. When all the steps have been entered, press the Sleep button 9 to enter the commands. The red light under the Input Selector 45 will blink and then turn off and the Program Indicator 2 will flash green twice to confirm the macro to be programmed. Example: To program the Macro 1 U button so that it turns on the AVR, TV and a Sat-Receiver, follow these steps: 48 PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE
Programmed Device Functions
Once the AVRs remote has been programmed for the codes of other devices, press the appropriate Input Selector 4 to change the remote from control over the AVR to the additional product. When you press any of these buttons, it will briefly flash in red to indicate that you have changed the device being controlled. When operating a device other than the AVR, the controls may not correspond exactly to the function printed on the remote or button. Some commands, such as the volume control, are the same as they are with the AVR. Other buttons will change their function so that they correspond to a secondary label on the remote. For example, the Sleep and Surround mode selector buttons also function as the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons when operating most TV sets, VCRs or Sat-Receivers.
