Has anyone else noticed this? Is there anyway to change it aside from denon possibly doing something about it in a firmware update?
What the others wrote, but:
First of all your Harmony isn't at the same speed as the Denon remote. It actually lags, meaning there is a noticeable time span between pressing the button and sending out the IR signals. Compare it with your Denon remote (or any other "primitive" remote) by pointing the remote at a point&shoot camera to make the IR signals visible!
You can set the key delay to 0 ms in the Harmony setup but you will still have some overhead resulting in lag (even with the most recent Harmony firmware).
Secondly, the Harmony buffers each button press and if you keep a button pressed down it - of course - repeats. This is actually a good and necessary feature but when combined with the lag may require you to learn the right timing as you will otherwise overshoot the volume setting.
There are several solutions to your dilemma:
- Logitech changes the Harmony One firmware (very unlikely as it is pretty old already and Logitech never admitted to this problem, but perhaps there will be a faster One successor some day? I would pay for this...)
- Denon changing their volume controle behaviour (not likely, especially with current models)
- You adapt to the "optimal timing" (most likely ;-))
