Sorry for the confusion, I'll see if I can explain it better. First let me say I e never really delved into the deep settings to try and change what any of the hard buttons do, etc., just used the wizard to turn everything on basically. This route has always worked for me except on a couple of occasions in the past where I had to run all the hdmi cables into a TV because the Avr didn't have hdmi. This required trying to set the tv (samsung) to different inputs by using a scrolling method. I never could get the harmony to scroll to the correct input for any given activity.
Now that I have an Avr with hdmi this isn't an issue since there is only one hdmi going to the TV and the Avr always switches to the correct input. But, since I got the Oppo and IT has different inputs for the bluray playback, the hdmi in back, hdmi in front and two ARC inputs I'm now back to the same problem I had when the hdmi cables were all going into the TV, it just won't select/scroll to the correct input.
I'm told in the Oppo thread that you can just press Input->#3
for hdmi in back(which is where my dvr is plugged in) and Input-> #1
for bluray playback. This method works fine using the Oppo remote and eliminates the need to scroll through the input menu by pressing the corresponding number key after pressing Input.
What I want is for the harmony to send the commands for Input then #1
for Movie Activity and Input then #3
for Watch Tv. I just can't figure out how to do that a need a step-by-step or something.
In case it matters, I'm using a harmony 1100 that uses an older software to program the remote, it doesn't work with the newer MyHarmony software that is used for the 650, etc.
Hope this helps explain it better and thanks for your help.
