Yup. Sad but true. I would happily trade the various picture setting buttons for direct inputs, but alas, no one asked me...
I do like having User 1, 2, 3 buttons, however.
How is your Harmony set up? Is there a 30 sec delay or so on power on to select input?
I have not yet built complete system use into my Harmony. I'm awaiting a new processor and that will require a total do-over. I just got tired of stepping thru the dead inputs to go from HDMI2 to HDMI1, so all I'm doing with the Harmony at the moment is input selection. I wanted to prove it worked with the direct inputs.
I have not explored how the RS10 interprets input commands during the warmup cycle. But that's something one can check with the RS10 remote. I hope someone here has already sussed that out and can report.
What happens when you switch between TV and DVD while the power is still on?
Not sure what you mean. I only switch while the power is on. I wait until I see a picture onscreen, and if I need to change the input, I use the Harmony--and it works nicely.
Right now, I'm considering two options:
1. Harmony 890 or 900 with a time delay on power up to select input
2. Harmony 890 or 900 with an Oppo HDMI auto switch. Provided the switch works as promised, this seems like the best option. It allows me to add a game console later as well if I want.
Yes, using an HDMI switch will solve the cumbersome PJ switching issue. Even though my new AV processor will allow HDMI switching, I will not use it because:
a) I only have 2 HDMI sources--the BD player and the DVR
b) The DVR is located inside the soffit near the PJ, so its output is easily connected to the PJ but not the processor. S/PDIF carries the best audio the DVR can output--no need for an HDMI run to the processor
c) the processor has no actual video processing, just switching, so I'll use the PJ to tweak the settings for each source unit and apply them based on which input is called.
