Harman-Kardon 640 Home Theater System User Manual

The Harman Kardon Digital Lounge systems are
among the first to allow direct playback of com-
patible files from portable USB devices. Two USB
On-The-Go inputs are available, one on the right
side of the product (USB 1) and one on the rear
panel (USB 2).
Connect your USB thumb drive or portable hard
disk, to either of the side or rear panel USB

you can use a standard USB-hub with an external
power supply, to which you can connect up to 16
portable USB devices.

buttons on the
remote control to turn the DVD Receiver on. In

Important Notes:
• Via USB only the following files can be listed
and played: MP3 or WMA music, JPEG pictures,
DivX or XviD movie files. Normal MPEG2
movies, MPEG1, VCD/SVCD or MJPEG movie
files will not be played.
• Only FAT32 formated Hard Drives can be con-
nected to USB. When your HD is preformatted
with NTFS, it must be re-formated with FAT32
before any files are stored onto it. Note that
the FORMAT-function of Windows XP can cre-
ate FAT32-partitions with max. 32 GB only.
To use a bigger HD with FAT32, specific tools
are needed (e.g. Norton Partition Magic or
Acronis Partition Expert). Please ask your
Dealer to get more information about those
specific programs.
• With USB as source, programming and random
functions are not available.
In case several USB devices are connected, all
will be shown in the same USB Menu. To differ-
entiate the drives, they will be shown as 1 and 2.
USB drives can have more than one partition. If
that is the case, the different partitions will be
shown as 1a, 1b, 1c etc.
The USB Menu contains the following settings.
Follow the explanations in the Upper Menu Line
on the bottom of your screen to change the set-

Random: Fixed to Off, Random play not possible

picture on the screen and the next one.
In the USB Menu, the chapter, track or picture
currently playing will be marked with an arrow

can be selected from this list at any time by mov-
ing the cursor to the desired track or file and

You will be able to use the THUMBNAIL function
to quickly and easily search for image files. Any
JPEG image file that has been created on the
computer with a thumbnail image included, will
show up on the right top of the screen when
scrolling though the contents list. The Thumbnail
function can be activated by moving the cursor to
the Thumbnail icon on the left and pressing
until the icon is lit light blue.
When the DVD receiver is in play mode, pressing
the PLAY button on the remote control will high-
light the track being played.
If you have a USB device that contains both
