REMOTE COnTROL FUnCTiOnS
The AVR 1600 remote is capable of controlling up to 11 devices,
including the AVR itself and a device connected to the Auxiliary
Input. During the installation process, you may program the codes
for each of your source components into the remote. Each time you
wish to operate any component or the AVR, first press its Selector
Button to change the device mode to the appropriate codes.
Each Input Selector has been preprogrammed to control certain
types of components, with only the codes specific to each
brand and model changing, depending on which product code
is programmed. The device types programmed into each selector,
except the HDMI selectors, may not be changed.
DVD: Controls Harman Kardon Blu-ray Disc players, and
many brands of DVD players and recorders.
CD: Controls CD players and recorders.
Tape: Controls cassette decks.
Video 1: Controls VCRs, TiVo
devices and DVRs, and
the Harman Kardon DMC 1000 digital media center.
Video 2: Controls cable and satellite television set-top boxes.
Video 3: Controls televisions and other video displays.
HDMI 1, 2 and 3: Each code set controls a source device
(VCR/PVR, DVD player or cable/satellite set-top box) connected to
one of these inputs.
AUX: Controls a device connected to the Auxiliary Input.
Any given button may have different functions, depending on which
component is being controlled. Some buttons are labeled with these
functions. For example, the Sleep Button is labeled for use as the
Channel Up Button when controlling a television or cable box. See
Table A10 in the appendix for listings of the different functions for
each type of component.
