MODE DOLBY DIGITAL FEATURES
This mode is available only when the source material is encoded with Dolby Digital (AC-3) data. It provides up to five separate main audio channels and a special dedicated Low-Frequency Effects channel. This mode is available only when the source material is encoded with DTS data. Available on special DVD, LD and audio-only discs, DTS provides up to five separate main audio channels and a special dedicated low-frequency channel. Dolby Pro Logic is the standard mode for analog surround sound decoding. It uses information encoded in a two-channel stereo recording to produce four distinct channels: Left, Center, Right and Surround. Use this mode for accurate reproduction of programs bearing the Dolby Surround, DTS Stereo, UltraStereo or other Surround logos. Surround encoded programs include videocassette, DVD and LD movies, TV and cable programs, radio programs and audio CDs. Dolby Pro Logic processing may also be used to provide a pleasing surround effect with some stereophonic source material that does not carry surround encoding.

DOLBY PRO LOGIC
DOLBY 3 STEREO
Dolby 3 Stereo uses the information contained in a surround encoded or two-channel No Surround Channels stereo program to create center channel information. In addition, the information that is normally sent to the rear channel surround speakers is carefully mixed in with the front left and right channels for increased realism. Use this mode when you have a center channel speaker, but no surround speakers. Theater Surround processing uses matrix surround decoding to simulate a standard movie or stage theater. These modes are designed for use with stereo recordings. They provide a sound-field effect that simulates the complex combination of direct and reflected sounds that create the rich reverberant atmosphere of a medium-sized concert hall (Hall 1) or a larger concert hall (Hall 2). This mode turns off all surround processing and presents the pure left and right channel presentation of two channel stereo programs.
detect if it is a multichannel Dolby Digital or DTS source or a conventional PCM signal, which is the standard output from CD players. An indicator will light in the Information Display to confirm the digital signal is AC-3 H or PCM I and if the source is OPTICAL E or COAX G. When a digital source is playing, the AVR65 will automatically switch to the proper surround mode. It is important to note, however, that not all Dolby Digital or DTS sources are encoded with the full complement of five channels plus LFE. When a digital source is playing, the Main Information Display U or on-screen display will change to show the input source and digital type (OPTICAL or COAX). When a source with digital encoding is playing, the input source name will appear in the Information Display or on-screen display, followed by a numeric key to the type and number of channels being decoded as follows:
3/2.1: This message appears when a full complement of Dolby Digital signals is present: 3 front channels (left, center and right), 2 surround channels (surround left and surround right) and 1 channel, which is the dedicated Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel.
This message indicates the system is decoding a standard Dolby Pro Logic signal with left, center and right front channels and a signal mono surround channel.
This message indicates that the system is decoding a traditional two-channel stereo signal and that no center, surround or LFE signals are present.
1+1: This is a monaural signal that plays the same information in both the left front and right front speakers. There is no sound sent to the center or surround speakers. 1/0: This is a monaural signal that plays through the center channel speaker only. There is no sound at the front left/right or surround speakers.
5. It is not possible to record the output of a digital program. PCM Audio Playback PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is the non-compressed digital audio system used for compact discs and non-AC-3 or DTS laser discs. The digital circuits in the AVR65 are capable of high-quality digitalto-analog decoding, and they may be connected directly to the digital audio output of your CD or LV player. Connections should be made to the Optical or Coaxial inputs on the rear panel, using whichever input is not occupied by a digital source such as a DVD player. To listen to a PCM digital source, first select the input for the desired source (e.g., CD). Next press the Digital button w and then using the / buttons g on the remote or the Selector buttons on the front panel until the desired choice of either COAXIAL or OPTICAL, as it appears in the Main Information Display U. Press the Set button i to enter the desired choice. When a PCM source is playing, the PCM indicator I will light, and the Main Information Display will show the input source and the digital type. During PCM playback you may select any surround mode except Dolby Digital.
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. Audio Link Depending on the distance from the AVR65 to the remote room, two options are available. One option is to run high-quality, shielded audio interconnect cable from the AVR65s location to the remote room. At the remote room, connect the interconnect cable to a stereo power amplifier. The amplifier will be connected to the rooms speakers. No volume control is required, as the AVR65 and the remote IR link will provide that function. At the AVR65, plug the audio interconnect cables into the Multi Out jacks d on the AVR65s rear panel. NOTE: The remote power amplifier must have signal sensing capability or be left on constantly to assure automatic operation at the remote room. As an alternative, place the amplifier that will provide power to the remote location speakers in the same room as the AVR65, and connect the Multi Out jacks d on the rear panel 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 AWG14 is recommended for long multiroom connections.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Any cables run inside walls should be CL3/FT4 rated, or carry any other certification that is required by the NEC, NFPA or state and local building and electrical codes. To avoid interference, audio and speaker cables should not be parallel to, or in the same conduits with AC cables. If you have any questions about multiroom wiring consult your dealer, custom installer or a licensed contractor or electrician. Multiroom Setup Once the audio and IR link connections have been made, the AVR65 needs to be configured for multiroom operation using the following steps. When making these selections, you may use the front panel Information Display, or use the OnScreen Display system. Either the semiOSD system may be used, in which case the choices will appear as a single-line display at the bottom of the screen, or as a full screen display. When the full-OSD display system is in use, the complete list of choices will appear on the screen. To activate the semi-OSD, press the OSD button o once. To activate the full-OSD, press the OSD button o three times. this will turn the semi-OSD on and then off. The full-OSD will appear on the third button press. Once you have determined which, if any OSD system to use, setup and operation of the multiroom system is simple.
1. Press the Multi button f to initiate the multiroom system. If the semi-OSD system is engaged, a message will appear at the bottom of the screen. If the full-OSD system is engaged, the complete multiroom menu (Figure 9) will be shown on the video display. Press the Set button i within five seconds to enter the multiroom menus.

Press the Set button i to enter the settings. 3. Within five seconds, press the or buttons g to scroll through the inputs. When the input source you wish to send to the remote room location appears on the front panel Information Display, in the lower screen semi-OSD message, or is highlighted in reverse video in the full-OSD listing, press the Set button i to enter the selection.
Programming the Remote
The AVR65 is equipped with a powerful remote control that will control not only the receivers functions, but also most CD players and cassette decks manufactured by Harman Kardon. For increased flexibility, the remote also contains the codes for most popular brands of audio and video equipment, including CD players, cassette decks, TV sets, cable boxes, VCRs, satellite receivers and other home-theater equipment. Once the AVR65s remote is programmed with the codes for the products you own, it is possible to eliminate most other remotes and replace them with the convenience of a single, backlit universal remote control.
3. Press and hold both the Device Control Selector b for the type of product to be entered (e.g., VCR, TV) and the Mute button d at the same time. Hold both buttons until the red light under the button stays lit. Note that the next step must take place while the red light is on, and it must begin within 20 seconds after the light illuminates. 4. Point the AVR65s remote towards the unit to be programmed, and enter the first three-digit code number using the Numeric buttons l. If the unit turns off, the correct code has been entered. Press the Device Control Selector b again, and note that the red light will flash twice to confirm the entry before going dark. 5. If the device to be programmed in does NOT turn off, continue to enter the three-digit code numbers until the equipment turns off. At this point, the correct code has been entered. Press the Device Control Selector b again, and note that the red light will flash twice to confirm the entry before going dark. 6. Try all of the functions on the remote to make certain that the product operates. Keep in mind that many manufacturers use a number of different combinations of codes, and it is a good idea to make certain that not only the Power control works, but the volume, channel and transport controls, as appropriate. If all functions do not work properly, you may need to use a different remote code.
7. If a code cannot be entered to turn the unit off, if the code for your product does not appear in the tables in this manual, or if not all functions operate properly, try programming the remote with the Auto Search Method.
Auto Search Method
If the unit you wish to include in the AVR65s remote is not listed in the code tables in this manual, or if the code does not seem to operate properly, you may wish to program the correct code using the Auto Search method as shown below. 1. Turn on the unit that you wish to include in the AVR65 remote. 2. Press the Device Control Selector b for the type of product to be entered (e.g., VCR, TV) and the Mute button d at the same time. Hold both buttons until the red light under the button stays lit. Note that the next step must take place while the red light is on, and it must begin within 20 seconds after the light illuminates. 3. Point the AVR65 remote towards the unit to be programmed, and press and hold the Surround Mode Selector y or the Sleep button `. This will send out a series of codes from the remotes built-in data base, with each flash of the red light under the Device Control Selector indicating that a code has been sent. When the device to be programmed turns off, IMMEDIATELY release the Surround Mode or Sleep button.
As shipped from the factory, the remote is fully programmed for all AVR65 functions, as well as those of most Harman Kardon CD changers, CD players and cassette decks. In addition, by following one of the methods below, you may program the remote to operate a wide range of devices from other manufacturers.
Direct Code Entry
This method is the easiest way to program your remote to work with different products. 1. Use the tables in the following pages to determine the three-digit code or codes that match both the product type (e.g., VCR, TV), but also the specific brand name. If there is more than one number for a brand, make note of the different choices. 2. Turn on the unit you wish to program into the AVR65 remote.
4. Press the Device Control Selector again, and note that the red light will flash twice to confirm the entry before going dark. 5. Try all of the functions on the remote to make certain that the product operates. Keep in mind that many manufacturers use a number of different combinations of codes, and it is a good idea to make certain that that not only the Power control works, but the volume, channel and transport controls, as appropriate. If all functions do not work properly, you may need to Auto-Search for a different code, or enter a code via the Direct Code Entry method.
2. Press the Night button j. The red light under the Device Control Selector b will blink in a sequence that corresponds to the three-digit code, with a one-second pause between each digit. Count the number of blinks between each pause to determine the digit of the code. One blink is the number 1, two blinks is the number 2, and so forth. Ten blinks are used to indicate a 0. Example: One blink, followed by a onesecond pause, followed by six blinks, followed by a one-second pause, followed by ten blinks indicates that the code has been set to 160. For future reference enter the Setup Codes for the equipment in your system here: CD AUX TV CBL TAPE SAT VCR
When operating a device other than the AVR65, 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 with the AVR65. 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 cable boxes. The Channel Up/Down indication is printed directly on the remote. The same is true for standard CD player, cassette deck, VCR and DVD functions, which follow the standard function icons printed on top of the buttons. For some products, however, the function of a particular button does not follow the command printed on the remote. In order to see which function a button controls, consult the Function List tables printed in this manual. To use those tables, first check the type of device being controlled (e.g., TV, VCR). Next, look at the remote control diagram pictured on the following page. Note that each button has a number on it.
When the code has been entered using the Auto Search method, it is always a good idea to find out the exact code so that it may be easily reentered if necessary. You may also read the codes to verify which device has been programmed to a specific Control Selector button. 1. Press and hold both the Device Control Selector b for the type of product to be entered (e.g., VCR, TV) and the Mute button d at the same time. Hold both buttons until the red light under the button stays lit. Note that the next step must take place while the red light is on, and it must begin within 20 seconds after the light illuminates.
Programmed Device Functions
Once the AVR65s remote has been programmed for the codes of other devices, press the appropriate Device Control Selector b to change the remote from control over the AVR65 to the additional product. When you press any of the Device Control Selectors, it will briefly flash in red to indicate that you have changed the device being controlled.
To find out what function a particular button has for a specific device, find the button number on the Function List and then look in the column for the device you are controlling. For example, button number 5 is the Test Tone button for the AVR65, but it is the Favorite button for many VCRs and Satellite receivers. Button number 31 is the Preset Tune Down button for the AVR65, the Reverse Skip button for CD players and the Page Down button for some cable boxes. Notes on Using the AVR65 Remote With Other Devices. Manufacturers may use different code sets for the same product category. For that reason, it is important that you check to see if the code set you have entered operates as many controls as possible. If it appears that only a few functions operate, check to see if another code set will work with more buttons. When a button is pressed on the AVR65 remote, the red light under the Device Control Selector b for the product being operated should flash briefly. If the Device Control Selector flashes for some, but not all buttons for a particular product, it does NOT indicate a problem with the remote, but rather that no function is programmed for the button being pushed.

INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
After unpacking the unit, locating it in a place with adequate ventilation and placing it on a solid surface capable of supporting its weight, you will need to make the connections to your audio and video equipment. IMPORTANT NOTE: For your personal safety and to avoid possible damage to your equipment and speakers, it is always a good practice to turn off and unplug the AVR and ALL source equipment from the AC output before making any audio or video system connections. Audio Equipment Connections We recommend that you use high-quality interconnect cables when making connections to source equipment and recorders to preserve the integrity of the signals. 1. Connect the analog output of a CD player to the CD Audio Inputs. NOTE: When the CD player has both fixed and variable audio outputs, it is best to use the fixed output unless you find that the input to the receiver is so low that the sound is noisy, or so high that it is distorted. 2. Connect the analog Play/Out jacks of a cassette deck, MD, CD-R or other audio recorder to the Tape Input Jacks. Connect the analog Record/In jacks on the recorder to the Tape Output Jacks on the AVR 135. 3. Connect the output of any digital sources such as a CD or DVD changer or player, advanced video game, a digital satellite receiver, HDTV tuner or digital cable set-top box or the output of a compatible computer sound card to the Optical and Coaxial Digital Audio Inputs c*(. We recommend connecting the coaxial digital audio output of your DVD player to the Coax 1 Digital Audio Input , since that digital input is assigned to the DVD source by default.
* INPUT SETUP *
the Set Button p to enter the new digital input assignment. 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 AVR 135s 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 Buttons o so that OFF appears. Repeat the procedure at any time so that ON appears to restore the Auto Polling feature. When all needed adjustments have been made, press the Button n until the cursor is next to BACK TO MASTER MENU to continue with the system configuration.

The next step is to set the surround mode you wish to use with the input that was previously selected in the INPUT SETUP menu. Since surround modes are a matter of personal taste, feel free to select any mode you wish you may change it later. However, to make it easier to establish the initial parameters for the AVR 135, it is best to select Dolby Pro Logic II or Logic 7 for most analog inputs and Dolby Digital for inputs connected to digital sources. In the case of inputs such as a CD Player, Tape Deck or Tuner, you may wish to set the mode to Stereo (Surround off) as they are not typically used with multichannel program material, and it is unlikely that surround-encoded material will be used. Alternatively, the Logic 7 Music mode is a good choice for stereoonly source material. See page 24 for more information on available surround modes. When selecting surround modes for digital program material, the AVR 135 will always examine the data stream and automatically select Dolby Digital or DTS as applicable. It is easiest to complete the surround setup using the full-OSD on-screen menus. From the MASTER MENU (Figure 1), press the / Buttons n until the cursor is next to the SURROUND
The following few paragraphs detail the instructions for surround mode categories with several mode options or with other available settings. On the DOLBY menu (Figure 4), mode choices include Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II-Music, Dolby Pro Logic II-Movie, Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby 3 Stereo. The Dolby Digital EX mode is only available when the system is set for 6.1/7.1 operation by configuring the Surround Back speakers to Small or Large as described on page 18. When a disc is playing that contains a special flag signal in the digital audio data stream, the EX mode will be selected automatically. It may also be selected using this menu or through the front panel or remote control as shown on page 23. A complete explanation of these modes is found on page 24. When the Dolby Digital mode is selected, there are additional settings available for the Night mode. The Night mode may also be adjusted directly any time a Dolby Digital source is playing by pressing the Night Mode Button l. When the button is pressed, D-RANGE will appear in the lower third of the video screen and in the Lower Display Line. Press the / Navigation Buttons n within three seconds to select the desired setting. When you have completed your selections on the DOLBY menu, press the / Navigation Buttons n until the cursor is next to the BACK TO SURR SELECT line. Press the Set Button p to return to the SURR SELECT menu (Figure 3). On the DTS menu, the choices made with the / Buttons o on the remote are determined by a combination of the type of program material in use and whether the 5.1- or 6.1/7.1-channel configuration is in use. When a DTS source is playing, the choice of modes for 7.1 systems will vary according to the type of program source (DTS 5.1, DTS-ES Matrix or DTS-ES Discrete). Press the / Buttons o to scroll through the choices that are available for your system and the program in use. The DTS Neo:6 Music mode is available with analog stereo sources and the DTS Neo:6 Cinema mode is available with analog matrix surround-encoded sources to deliver an enhanced 5.1-channel sound field. When the 5.1 configuration is in use, the AVR will automatically select the 5.1 version of DTS processing when a DTS data stream is selected. When the 6.1/7.1 mode is selected, the DTS-ES Discrete mode will automatically be activated when a DTS source with the ES Discrete flag is in use. When a non-ES DTS disc is in use, you may select the DTS-ES Matrix mode through this menu to create a full eight-channel surround mode. See page 24 for a complete explanation of the DTS modes. On the LOGIC 7 menu, the choices made with the / Buttons o on the remote are determined by whether the 5.1- or 6.1/7.1-channel configuration is in use. In either case, the selection of a Logic 7 mode enables Harman Kardons exclusive Logic 7 processing to create fully enveloping, multichannel surround sound from either two-channel Stereo or Matrix-encoded programming such as VHS cassettes, laser discs or television broadcasts produced with Dolby surround. In the 5.1 configuration, you may select the Logic 7/ 5.1 Music, Cinema or Enhance mode. They work best with two-channel music, surround-encoded programs or standard two-channel programming of any type, respectively. For 6.1/7.1 configurations, the Music and Cinema modes may be selected. The Logic 7 modes are not available when either Dolby Digital or DTS digital soundtracks are in use. See page 24 for a complete explanation of the Logic 7 modes. On the DSP (SURR) menu, the choices made with the / Buttons o on the remote select from one of the DSP surround modes that are designed for use with two-channel stereo programs to create a variety of sound field presentations. The choices available are Hall 1, Hall 2, Theater, VMAx Near and VMAx Far. The Hall and Theater modes are designed for multichannel installations, while the two VMAx modes are optimized for use in delivering a full surround field when only the front left and front right speakers are installed. See page 24 for a complete explanation of the DSP surround modes. On the STEREO menu, the choices made with the / Buttons o on the remote may either turn the surround processing off for a traditional two-channel stereo presentation, or select 5 STEREO or 7 STEREO depending on whether a 5.1 or 6.1/7.1 configuration is in use. The latter modes feed a twochannel presentation to all speakers, regardless of the number of speakers in use. See page 24 for a complete explanation of the 5 Stereo and 7 Stereo modes. After the selections are made on the Dolby, DTS, Logic 7, DSP (Surround) or Stereo menus, press the / Buttons n so that the cursor moves to the BACK TO MASTER MENU line and press the Set Button p.
:SIZE HT : LARGE : SMALL : SMALL K : SMALL ER : SUB(LFE) : GLOBAL MASTER MENU
The first line of the SPEAKER SETUP menu (Figure 5) allows you to switch the menu to change either the speaker size setting or the exact crossover point used for that speaker group. For the first pass through the menu, leave the setting at its default option of SIZE, and then proceed as outlined below. Once the speaker choices have been set, you may wish to return to this line to change the option so that the crossover settings may be adjusted. Begin the speaker 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 o so that either LARGE or SMALL appears, matching the appropriate description from the definitions shown above. When SMALL is selected, low-frequency 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 low-frequency sounds from the front channels. 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
, as doing so may damage your speakers, the AVR 135 or both. When 7.1-channel information is received, for example through the 6/8-Channel Direct Inputs f, or when deriving 7-Channel Stereo or Logic 7/7.1 surround information, the AVR 135 combines the left and right surround back channel information and outputs it as a single surround back channel. When you have completed your selection for the back surround channels, press the Button n on the remote to move the cursor to SUBWOOFER. Press the / Buttons o on the remote to select the option that best describes your system. The choices available for the subwoofer position will depend on the settings for the other speakers, particularly the front left/right positions. If the front left/right speakers are set to SMALL, the subwoofer will automatically be set to SUB, which is the on position. If the front left/right speakers are set to LARGE, three options are available: If no subwoofer is connected to the AVR 135, press the / Buttons o on the remote so that NONE appears in the on-screen menu. When this option is selected, all bass information will be routed to the front left/right main speakers. If a subwoofer is connected and you wish to have the front left/right main speakers reproduce bass frequencies at all times, and have the subwoofer operate only when the AVR 135 is being used with a digital source that contains a dedicated Low-Frequency Effects, or LFE, soundtrack. Press the / Buttons o on the remote so that LFE appears in the on-screen menu. If a subwoofer is connected and you wish to use it for bass reproduction in conjunction with the main front left/right speakers, regardless of the type of program source or Surround mode, press the / Buttons o on the remote so that SUB LFE+L/R appears in the on-screen menu. When this option is selected, a full-range signal will be sent to the front left/right main speakers, and the subwoofer will receive the bass frequencies under frequency selected, as described below, as well as the LFE information. When all initial speaker size settings have been made, you now have the option to take advantage of the AVR 135s Triple Crossover system, which allows individual crossover settings to be made for each speaker grouping. The low-frequency crossover point is set by the design of your speakers. Depending on the design and driver complement of your speakers, it is usually defined as the lowest possible frequency the speaker is capable of reproducing. Before making any changes to the settings for the crossover point, we suggest that you find the crossover point for the speakers in each of the three groupings, front left/right, center and surrounds, by looking at the specifications page of each speakers owners manual, or by contacting your dealer or the manufacturers customer service department or Web site. You will need this figure to accurately configure the next group of settings. The factory default setting for all speaker positions is 100Hz. If that setting is acceptable for all channels, then no adjustments are needed and you may skip this section. However, should you wish to change one of the settings, please proceed by pressing the Button n so that the cursor moves back up to the top of the list of setting options. Press the / Buttons n so that X-OVER is highlighted and the menu data will change to the screen shown in Figure 6.
Due to the different distances between the listening position for the front channel speakers and the surround speakers, the amount of time it takes for sound to reach your ears from the front versus surround speakers differs. You may compensate for this differ-
ence through the use of the delay settings to adjust the timing for the speaker placement and acoustic conditions in your listening room or home theater. The AVR 135s advanced software enables you to quickly and easily set delay times without the need to calculate them using a complex formula. Instead, all you need to do is measure the approximate distance between your listening position and each of the speakers in your system. When you enter those distances into the AVRs memory as shown below, the AVRs microprocessor does the rest of the work, calculating the proper delay time. The measurements need not be accurate to the inch, as the system is designed to accommodate a typical listening area rather than require the precise measurement to one sweet spot position. Due to the differences in the way each surround mode operates, some modes allow for a greater range of delay times than others. To avoid problems, we recommend that delay times be adjusted using the Dolby Digital mode. If a different mode is selected at a later time, the AVR 135 will automatically restrict the delay settings to those required by the surround mode in use. Delay times are only adjustable for the Dolby modes, so you will notice that the DELAY menu may not be accessed when any other mode, such as a DTS or Logic 7 option, has been selected. In addition, when a non-Dolby Digital mode such as Dolby 3 Stereo or Pro Logic II is selected, adjustments may be made to the Surround speakers only. To set the delay time for a specific input, the DELAY ADJUST menu (Figure 7) should be visible on your on-screen display. If it is not, press the OSD Button v to bring up the MASTER MENU, and press the Button n until the on-screen cursor is pointing at the DELAY ADJUST line. Press the Set Button p to call up the menu. NOTE: In order to adjust the Delay settings for the surround back channels, a Dolby Digital or DTS source must be playing. This enables the system to activate the surround back processing mode. Once the DELAY ADJUST menu is on your screen, note that the default setting to enter the distances from the speakers to the listening position is in feet. If your measurements are in feet, proceed to the next step; if your measurements are made in meters, press the Button n until the on-screen cursor is at the UNIT line on the menu. Then, press the / Buttons o so that METER is highlighted. When the change in measurement units is made, press the / Buttons n to return the cursor to the CENTER position. With the on-screen cursor pointing to CENTER, press the / Buttons o until the distance from the center speaker to the preferred listening position is entered. Next, press the Button n to move the cursor to the SURROUND line and use the / Buttons o again to enter the distance from the video display at the front of the room to the surround speakers. Finally, if the system is configured for 7.1 operation by entering LARGE or SMALL on the SURR BACK line of the SPEAKER SETUP menu, press the Button n again and use the / Buttons o to enter the distance from the listening position to the surround speakers. Remember that this last adjustment will only be needed when you have surround back speakers installed and Dolby Digital chosen as the surround mode. When the speaker-to-listening-position distance has been entered for all active speaker positions, press the / Buttons n until the on-screen cursor is next to BACK TO MASTER MENU and press the Set Button p.

Programmed Device Functions
Once the AVR 135s remote has been programmed for the codes of other devices, press the appropriate Input Selector e to change the remote from controlling the AVR 135 to controlling the additional product. When you press any one of the selectors, it will briefly flash in red to indicate that you have changed the device being controlled. When operating a device other than the AVR 135, 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 135. 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 cable boxes. The Channel Up/Down indication is printed directly on the remote. For many standard CD players, cassette decks, VCRs and DVD functions, the standard function icons are printed on top of the buttons. For some products, however, the function of a particular button does not follow the command printed on the remote. In order to see which function a button controls, consult the Function List tables on pages 33 and 34. To use those tables, first check the type of device being controlled (e.g., TV, VCR). Next, look at the remote control diagram in Figure 11. Note that each button has a number on it. To find out what function a particular button has for a specific device, find the button number on the Function List and then look in the column for the device you are controlling. For example, button number 44 is the Direct button for the AVR 135, but it is the Favorite button for many cable television boxes and satellite receivers. Button number 30 is the Delay button for the AVR 135, but the Open/Close button for CD players. NOTE: The numbers used to describe the button functions in Figure 11 for the purposes of describing how a button operates are a different set of numbers than those used in the rest of this manual to describe the button functions for the AVR 135. Notes on Using the AVR 135 Remote With Other Devices. Manufacturers may use different code sets for the same product category. For that reason, it is important that you check to see whether the code set you have entered operates as many controls as possible. If it appears that only a few functions operate, check to see whether another code set will work with more buttons.

When a button is pressed on the AVR 135 remote, the red light under the Input Selector ef for the product being operated should flash briefly. If the Device Control Selector flashes for some but not all buttons for a particular product, it does NOT indicate a problem with the remote but rather that no function is programmed for the button being pushed.
