. so no idea what, if anything, i would be missing out of with that 247 remote? is any harman kardon remote with an "OSD" button on it gonna bring up the OSD?
also, i read somewhere that it has to be hooked up via composite video to show the osd....is that right? is there any way I can get the osd on my computer monitor? it only has vga and dvi inputs btw.
I'm not positive the 247 remote will run the 154 but the remote I have for the 247 ran an 8 year old HK AVR 520 I also owned. All functions worked good. OSD included.
HK or any other brand - makes no difference - do not re-invent these things once proved to work - they clone them for as long as it works - as seen on the interchangeable remotes with my 247 and 520 separated by 6 years.
Good luck getting your OSD to display on the computer monitor. Stick to tv displays and keep your sanity.
Your 154 can only output OSD from s-video and composite. This is because the HDMI is passthrough - no audio or video signal is intercepted and used in any way. This also means no upconverting - composite and s-video aren't converted into an HDMI signal.
Looking at the remote for the 154 it looks exactly like the one I use for my 247. I'd be very surprised if it does not work exactly as the 154 remote does.
