You said since you have 2 output.... I'm not sure I follow you there? can you elaborate on that more? Is that just the two you have setup? TV and PS3 I wasnt sure what you meant.. Thanks for the insite!
Yes. In each activity, I just go to Sequence and add the appropriate control. It is NOT automatic, but to the user, everytime they press the + button, it will select the right input/output.
I have 2 output device.. One plasma, and one Projector. that's what I mean. So, I basically doubled my activities, and have one for plasma and one for projector. (Harmony force me to pick an output device when I create an activity, which is pretty dump.. If they allow me to create an activity without a display, then I can just easily create a power button for my plasma and projector, and just press that after I start up my activity... vs. I need to create 2 identical activites and there is no copy function!!).
For example, if I am in "watch TV Plasma", my + button will look like
DUO HDMI Input1, Plasma Input1, AVR Input3
And if i am in "watch TV Projector", my + button will be programmed to
DUO HDMI Input1, Projector Input1, AVR Input3
another thing that I program to the + button is the 24p support. Since my plasma does not support it, I program my + button to turn it OFF.
It is a bit troublesome to program the + button as the macro sequence in Harmony cannot be re-used across activities...However, it is quite a time-saver whenever my DUO cannot switch properly.
