I just got one of these Harmony 700 remotes for christmas, and it's going to be really great to put my 4-5 other remotes away in favor of just this one... but I just have one nagging issue that I haven't been able to fix.
For my activities that activate my surround sound receiver (about half of them), the TV speakers are not set to mute by default, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to customize the activities to add a "Mute TV" command to them.
I hear/read people talking about customizing activities and adding commands to them manually as if it's an obvious thing, but the current version of the programming software I used (online) to set up my remote doesn't give me an option anywhere to customize the commands issued in an activity.
According to what I've read, there should be a "Settings" button leading to the options "Review the settings for this Activity > Yes, but I want to add more control of options and devices for this Activity" within the setup software under "Activities", but the version of the software automatically installed on my computer doesn't have these options at all.
I only have the options of re-running the activity setup wizard, adding a new activity, or deleting an activity.
The activity setup wizard only gives me the options of setting up inputs and devices used, and the only choices I have at the end are "back" and "finish".
I can customize the hard buttons or screen to add a manual "Mute TV" button, but that sort of defeats the point of so-called "one touch" activities in the first place.
I setup the remote on my Mac, through the Safari web interface if that makes any difference. Are there different versions of the setup software with more or less functionality? If so, how do I access the "advanced" one?
