    All I see on the back are these "Remote IR In/Outs"

    "Remote IR Input: If the AVR 230’s front-panel
    IR sensor is blocked due to cabinet doors or other
    obstructions, an external IR sensor may be used.
    Connect the output of the sensor to this jack."

    "Remote IR Output: This connection permits the
    IR sensor in the receiver to serve other remote controlled
    devices. Connect this jack to the “IR IN” jack on
    Harman Kardon (or other compatible) equipment."

    Even on the flagship AVR7200 there doesn't seem to be a 12v trigger. Is there something I'm missing, or am I right assuming that none of them have triggers?

    None of the HK receivers I know of (including the 7200)have 12V triggers. What I do is attach a 12V transformer to the switched power outlet, and use that to trigger my amp/power my fans. I don't know of any receivers in the 230's class that have 12V triggers.
