Installation of new Harman Kardon AVR 141 av receiver - help required
by New receiver owner
I recently saved some money and I finally decided to buy my own full fledged home theater system. Besides buying an HD TV, I also bought a receiver and a set of 5 speakers.
This is my first time dealing with a home theater system, so I barely know how to do the many tasks required to set it up.
So far I managed to connect my cable tv to the receiver and the receiver to the TV, I'm getting the image, but my problem is that I'm only getting sound from the TV speakers.
I already checked all the speakers and they are correctly striped and connected to the back of the receiver, also they are connected in the right polarity.
I also tried connecting different sounds sources (cd player and also my laptop) but still I can't make the speakers work.
My receiver: Harman Kardon AVR 141 (system 14118)
Speakers: Model Spark
Thank you in advance for your time :)
