Sorry, I can't help with Harmony info, but by chance do you own any of the URC OneForAll universal remotes?
If you had a URC remote that operates the XS32 (using setup code: 1510), then I could give you the 'Extended' (aka Magic) function codes for all of the buttons on the original remote.
[Important: Some URC OFA remotes had a Toshiba DVR setup code included, but MOST did not. I say this to keep you from wasting your money on the majority of non-compatible remotes.]
The great thing about this setup is that... Once you have a URC remote that has general functionality over any given device (TV, DVR, VCR), you can have it send a raw IR signal to that device and, eventually, guess all the original remote codes/buttons.
(This guy explains it nicely, http://xi6.com/remotes/
And then, use the URC to teach your favorite learning remote all of the original remote buttons/functions that you need, all without the need for the original remote.
Some years ago, when I bought my XS32 I had an URC remote that did *not* work with the XS32, but I sent that OFA remote in to URC and they added/programmed the XS32 device code into the remote and sent it back. All I had to pay was shipping to them.
Unfortunately, I think that great service has long since been discontinued.
