Question about Harman Multimedia AVR-354 Receiver

Open Question

My Harman Kardon AVR 354 is not showing DTS on the menu

I have the PS3 connected to the Harman Kardon AVR 354 and it only shows MULTI CH PCM. I was expecting it to say DTS or Dolby, etc.

I have read there are several problems with PS3 and the Harman Kardon but I had read that it was fixed with the updates. My unit has been updated to the latest fix.

Could somebody tell me if it's configuration from my PS3?

Hi Javis. This is perfectly normal ! This mode change is done because the receiver auto detects the digital audio signal and sets the receiver's DSP to decode the signal correctly. You can go into the OSD menu to bypass the auto detection of it, but it's not recommended at all ! You're getting the best audio quality by doing so. Thanks ! cheebster.

SOURCE: my denon avr-888 receiver displays

See page 40 of this....http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-888-OM-E_004.pdf

It indicates that apparently, encoding other than DD or DTS such as found on DVD, will be displayed as you are seeing it now and that is normal. I'm guessing it's a possibility that at the time of production of your receiver there may have not even been a name yet for the hi-def encoding you find on Blu-ray or HD-DVD...the manual does not mention even being able to display DTS-HD and such on it's panel. Also see page 32, section 4.

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 have a Motorola QIP6200/64xx DVR set-top box thru Verizon


The best code I could find was "007"

"210" kind of works, but can't compete with Mr. Bond.

After programming "007", if there are any features of you FiOS remote that do not work on the HK AVR 354 remote, simply follow the HK AVR 354 manual instructions to "learn" additional commands. See the last paragraph on page 31 through letter "e" on page 32.

HK AVR35 Receiver - Dolby Digital not displaying or working


If the display is showing as optical/PCM, then the input signal is in 2 Ch Stereo.

Try to change the signal from the source i.e. the DVD player, On the remote, go to audio and press repatedly , the audio would change from audio1, audio 2 .... and so on, depending upon how may have been recorded on the DVD. If the DVD is recorded in Dolby Digital, it may show the audio as Dolby Digital 5.1 on you monitor. Once this setting has been done, your Receiver should automatically detect it and show as Optical/Dolby digital.

Please let me know if you you solve your problem.

How to play dts/dolby digital on HK AVR5


I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.

Display while playing movies


Hi, no, this is not the normal display. It should indicate the digital sound format like DD or DTS, etc. If it is displaying PCM, this is probably due to the audio settings on your DVD player. Please provide your DVD make and model, and I will look to find the solution.

Cannot get dts from my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 via my Blue Ray


I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:

I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...

Hope this helps...
