OVERVIEW OF THE HTR 2
Controls up to 8 devices.
44 function keys.
Learns up to 352 commands.
Records up to 44 macros with a maximum of 64 commands each.
Configurable punch-through function.
Key illumination with programmable time-out.
Contains pre-programmed library of NAD remote codes.
The NAD HTR 2 is ready to operate NAD components right out of the box,
but it is really eight remotes in one. Each of the 8 Device Selector keys at
the top of the handset can call up a new "page" of remote-control codes
to be transmitted by the remaining 44 keys. The HTR 2 can "learn" codes
from virtually any infrared-remote-controlled component, regardless of
brand, to any or all of these Device Selector keys. When setting up the HTR
2 to operate your entire Home Theatre system, the most logical approach is
to teach the codes from your DVD player to the [DVD] Device Selector key,
your television's codes to the [TV] key, and so on. But there is no required
scheme: You may load any commands to any key on any page (see
"Learning Codes From Other Remotes," below).
The HTR 2 is already preprogrammed with a full complement of NAD
commands on its [AMP] Device Selector page, and with library commands
to operate most NAD DVD, CD, TUNER, or TAPE components on the
corresponding Device Selector keys. These default commands are
permanent: Even if you teach the HTR 2 new commands to take their place,
the underlying library commands remain in place and can easily be recalled
should you add an NAD component to your system later (see "Delete
GETTING FAMILIAR WITH THE HTR 2
The HTR 2 is divided into two main sections. The Device Selector section at
the top of the handset, and the remaining 44 Control keys.
Eight Device Selector keys at the top-[AMP], [DVD,] [TV,] and so on -
determine which component the remaining 44 control keys will operate. A
DEVICE SELECTOR key determines only what component the HTR 2 will
command; it does not perform any function on the receiver. The Device
Selector keys are organized into two vertical rows of 4 buttons each; the row
on the left are all Audio devices, the row on the right are all Video devices.
The control keys are function keys that can "learn" control codes from
virtually any infrared remote controller, allowing you to teach the codes of
your equipment, regardless of brand, to the HTR 2. All of the Control keys
on the [AMP] Device Selector are preprogrammed to control NAD amps,
preamps, and receivers. (The HTR 2 can also command many other NAD
components, from its [DVD,] [CD,] [TUNER,] and [TAPE] pages.)
Since HTR 2 Control keys can perform different functions, depending on the
selected Device Selector key, the HTR 2 uses color coding to indicate the
function of the Control keys when different Device keys are chosen. Thus,
the color of the Device Selector key-labeling corresponds to the labelling of
the function keys (similar to a scientific calculator). For example, the red-
orange [AMP] Device Selector key label corresponds to the red-orange
input-select labelling adjacent to the numeric keys: When the HTR 2's [AMP]
Device Selector page is active, these keys select the amp or receiver inputs.
Similarly, the purple [DVD] Device Selector key label corresponds to several
purple labels, the green [TV] Device key to green labels, and so on.
