Step Six – Plug in AC Power


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 31. Make a note of how the input is labeled.

If you used composite video for any sources, connect the composite video Monitor output on the receiver to a composite video input on the display. See Figure 31. Again, make a note of how this input is labeled on the display.

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 component’s AC power cord into a working outlet.

You may plug one device into the AC Switched Accessory Outlet on the rear of the AVR 147. See Figure 32. 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 147 is turned on.

Before plugging the AVR 147’s 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.

Step Seven – Insert Batteries in Remote

The AVR 147 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 33, making sure to observe the correct polarity.

When using the remote, remember to point the lens toward the front panel of the AVR 147. Make sure no objects, such as furniture, are blocking the remote’s path to the receiver. Bright lights, fluorescent lights and plasma video displays may interfere with the remote’s functioning. The remote has a range of about 20 feet, depending on the lighting conditions. It may be used at an angle of up to 30 degrees to either side of the AVR.

If the remote seems to operate intermittently, or if pressing a button on the remote does not cause the AVR Selector or one of the Input Selectors to light up, then make sure the batteries have been inserted correctly, or replace all three batteries with fresh ones.

Step Eight – Program Sources Into the Remote

The AVR 147 remote not only is capable of controlling the receiver, but it may also be programmed to control many brands and models of VCRs, DVD players, CD players, cable boxes, satellite receivers, cassette decks and TVs, as well as an iPod docked in The Bridge.

It may help to think of the remote as a book with pages. Each page represents the button functions for a different device. In order to access the functions for a particular device, you first need to “turn to that page”; that is, switch the remote to that device mode. This is done by pressing the AVR Button to access the codes that control the receiver, or the Input Selector buttons to access the codes for the devices programmed into the remote.

You may have noticed that three of the Input Selectors look different from the others (see Figure 34). For the DVD/CD, TAPE/The Bridge and HDMI 1/HDMI 2 Selectors, there is a primary source, whose name is printed on the button, and a secondary source, whose name is printed in green above the button.

When the remote is in the device mode for the primary source, e.g. DVD, pressing the device selector will cause it to light up in red. When the remote is in the secondary source’s device mode, the selector will light up in green when pressed.

To switch between the primary and secondary device modes, press the selector twice quickly in succession. The selector will retain this selection until the next time you toggle between the primary and secondary device modes. That is, if you press the DVD/CD Selector twice quickly so that the CD source is activated, then press another source selector, such as Video 1, the next time you press the DVD/CD Selector, the remote will return to the CD device mode.

The AVR 147’s remote is factory-programmed to control an iPod docked in The Bridge and many Harman Kardon DVD and CD players.
