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.

You have to configure your DTV input to use optical audio instead of analog dtv audio (red/white plugs). Input assignment should be described in the manual. Come back to me if you have still problems with it.

Yes, you are correct: the only audio output this LG tv has is an optical/TOSLINK one. Just use a fiber cable between the tv and the HK. You use this connection to play on the HK the sound from the tv channel - they selected to use this type of connector because modern HD channels have 5.1 sound while the tv and its possible RCA output connectors are just stereo.
You connect the DVR this way: an S-Video cable and a TOSLINK between the DVR and HK , and an single RCA Composite (yellow) video cable between the HK and the LG tv.

The inputs may be assignable on the Harman Kardon. Make sure you have selected the proper analog or digital input type for the cable you are using. For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

You probably have to select the optical input from the menu for sources of your component connection. Most receivers allow you to select optical, coax, or plain PCM right/left audio.

Which optical port in the back of the receiver goes to the optical port on the back of my HDTV


The manual talks about that.

Any of the three INPUTS if you're bringing sound IN from the TV or elsewhere; or the lone OUTPUT if you want to send audio to the TV or elsewhere.

If the former, consider sourcing the audio from the REAL original source of the program you're watching, most likely a Cable Box. Less cabling and fewer connections to fail.

Fiber Optic input


No gots. The 3485 is pre-digital stereo-only.

From the manual, page 19

"You may have observed that the HK 3485 is not equipped with digital audio inputs or surround sound decoding. If you prefer the complete home theater experience, you may wish to consider purchasing a fullfeatured Harman Kardon AVR Series audio/video receiver. However, we hope you will find that using a DVD player with the HK 3485 in smaller settings, such as a bedroom or den, surpasses the audio performance of most televisions, including those with onboard stereo speakers."

Connect the optical audio OUT on the TV to the optical audio IN on the receiver. Turn the receiver on and set it to input as it was labeled on the connection ("video" or "auxillary" or such). Turn the TV on and set it to an active TV channel (with video and presumably audio info), not to VIDEO 1.
If you continue to have a problem, please provide an update.
