Harman-Kardon AVR65 Home Theater System User Manual

Programming the Remote
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
• 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
