I programed my Harmony 650 for use with this projector yesterday and these are the settings I used on the first attempt which worked flawlessly for me.
Within the settings for the actual device, not a specific activity, go through the prompts to change the way the device powers on and off. Click that there are separate buttons for on and off. You will be brought to a menu with the power on action/sequence which is used in all activities or when you globally power you system up or down. Below the power on settings expand the power off settings option. Despite selecting that your projector has separate buttons for power on and off you will see that Logitech has setup the sequence with two (2) power toggle commands being sent. (I just set mine up yesterday, if yours is different by default than Logitech must have updated the default and you will either want to somehow get their new settings imported or re-ad the device). After reading all of the posts here and elsewhere regarding the trouble powering this unit down with the Harmony I made some tweaks before I ever attempted to use their settings.
First, I changed the time for each "power toggle" button press to .5 sec.
Next, I added two additional commands to send the "power off" command two (2) separate times after the two (2) "power toggle" commands. Thus I had 2 power toggles followed by 2 power offs.
Finally, I added a delay of approx 700 ms between each command.
(As an additional note which I do not believe is relevant here I also changed the global settings for this device to slightly increase the delay between sending input commands. As i did not try without this setting I am including this step in case the settings I described above do not work).
After adding all of these commands to the power down option I have successfully powered the unit off 10 plus times without a single fail as part of a total system power down from an activity with my Harmony remote. Even with the delays ect. I added the remote clears its screen from the power off button press within a half a second, unlike when you turn the activity on and you have to wait for the remote to go through all its commands. Regardless I can see that the full action is working as I get the message about pressing power a second time for about 1 second or less before it receives the second power off command necessary to power down the projector. As the second two commands are power off and not toggle I have had no issue with the unit turning back on. I am not sure if 4 commands to power off is necessary but it is not hurting anything and it has yet to not work.
I hope this can provide some help to those of you who have been struggling wit this issue in being unable to power off the BenQ W1070 with the Harmony remote.
