I haven't been into amps or receivers for over a decade and bought one of these second hand, to say I was out of my depth is an understatement.

The abbreviation OSD was not particularly helpful in the instruction manual as I thought it would show on the small led display on the unit/amp but its actually for a TV screen. I ended up using only the yellow connector of a composite cable (yellow, red and white connectors) connecting it from the video out (no. 12 of reverse of unit) and making sure the TV was on the right input, in my case AV.

Once on the blue screen it told me what input it was currently on (same as displayed on amp). From here I just pressed the OSD button on the amp's remote control and navigated to the Ez setup using the black arrow buttons surrounding the (amp remotes) OK button. I tried pressing left and right to select the 5.1 setup I have, but it did nothing and seemed to recognise it was 5.1 (not 7.1) anyway. Hope this helps someone.

This model does have a delay function. Programming is on page 19 of the user manual. Go to http://www.harmankardon.com/product_support/interstitial.aspx?sJump=ps&Region=USA&Country=US&Language=ENG select all products, AVR135, and get the owner's guide. If you have trouble with the link, then go to the Harmon Kardon site, and make your way to the support portal and then select all products.

SOURCE: Harman Kardon AVR 154 OSD setup screen wont display

It will only display via component. Your HDMI firmware is either 1.1 or 1.2 and has HDCP issues (High Definition Copyright Protection) it's a firmware problem that has been fixed on all new receivers, not just a HK issue, all receivers! the new version 1.3a and 1.3b have fixed the issue. Unfortunately you cannot update the firmware on the receiver. Hope this explains it for you, sorry! Lot's of angry people out there!!! myself included.

SOURCE: can I conect harman Kardon avr 230 to apple tv

Yes, although it (AVR) does not support HDMI only component video.

Connect the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the TV if you have inadequate video inputs, or want to take advantage of the HDMI.

SOURCE: Harman/kardon avr 247 no audio or LED display on the reciever

I've had the exact problem. HK in the states is no help, you need to deal with a company in Montreal (Jan Industries). Regular techs are unable to fix it without schematics that only authorized dealers have and the manufacturer. This problem happened to me just after 2 years and outside warranty. I've bought a Yamaha today.

I just purchased a Harman Kardon AVR 2650 and use it with a projector. It says to use the set up button and there isn't one. can't get on screen menu to set up


HI,
First of all check the HDMI connections. You have to connect the HDMI Monitor out to Your projector.. And HDMI 1 to blueray or to a dvd player what you have.

To access the setup on Harman Kardon avr Just press the AVR button on the remote control. You can find the AVR button on the lowest postion of the remote . When you press the AVR button the ON SCREEN menu will pop up. Do the settings you needed.

One more thing try to use HDMI cable wih a vertion of 1.4a.

If you are not able to get the AVR ON SCREEN menu through HDMI then connect the composite monitor out In the rear of the avr to the projectors composite video input. Select the projectors composite input.

Then press the AVR button. Connect the mic to your Avr which coms with it. Select the speaker setup From the menu. Then select Automatic setup.

If you need any more assistance feel free to contact me throug fixya or by mail.

HARMAN KARDON AVR 130NO SOUND FROM SUB WOOFER


Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com

The receiver must KNOW it has a sub and you must decide how bass is managed among all your speakers and set up relative levels.

Can you hoop up an external equalizer to the Harman Kardon AVR 30?


Any traditional old-school analog stereo processor can be used only with analog stereo sources.

If this receiver had any digital sources, you would eventually discover that activation of a Tape Loop disables digital sources. Just the same you CAN still use DSP on processed 2-channel audio.

It's should clearly marked on the back of the EQ where everything goes.

The Line IN and Line Out would go to any available Tape Loop on the receiver. Something that has Out's and In's. Obviously, Out's on one device go to In's on the next.

I have harman kardon AVR 230 7.1, Can it run my new Bose 901 VI speakers, how i will connect the Bose EQ ( 901 VI EQ) to this AVR?


I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!


You're in luck because you have a full complement of pre-outs. You'll need a separate amp for the 901's.


First some background.


The use of 901's Active EQ (or any external proxcessor) in any digital AV receiver setup for anything EXCEPT STEREO listening through the 901's alone requires you to have a separate amplifier for them and to avoid having to use a Tape Monitor which could introduce proprietary and potentially damaging Active Equalization back into anything in the AV Receiver with its conventional speakers.


In an AVR, if you activate any Tape Monitor circuit at all, you will kill any digital sources. That is a function of AV receivers in general, nothing to do with 901's. Your Pre-Outs get us around that possibility and limitation but it also means you need a moderately powerful amp for your 901's. I use a Carver MT-200.



Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L and R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.


** Front Pre Out (or one of your analog Tape Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.


The AV Receiver can still drive the Center, Surrounds and the Sub(s) as it is designed. This is how mine is wired.


Then set the new amp's volume control (if it has one, mine doesn't) to something HIGH and leave it alone. Run through your speaker setup routines on the AVR. After levels and distances are set the AVR will be the boss of the 901's. With 901's don't even need subwoofers but they don't hurt. If you do have subs I recommend sharing the LFE with the 901's.


I've done this in my own setup once. Turn the 901's around so the rear faces point into the listening area. Crank up a movie like Master and Commander and when the waves are crashing or cannon are firing you WILL FEEL A BREEZE from them. Now THAT is multi-media! I advise having the 901's share LFE with any subwoofers you might have.
