The Xbox 360 harmony was my favorite remote for a long time. I had many, many macros on mine. I guess if you never used them, you won't miss them in the 900.
There are no known discretes for those apps on a Samsung. But using your cable remote, it takes about 15 minutes to find them if they do exist. Assuming you have the model I think you do, just try every code from 00000-00255 in TV mode. To test a code, tap (don't hold) the Setup button followed quickly by a code, 00183 for example (power toggle). When you press the last digit, the command is sent. If you have a really new cable remote, it has no Setup button, so this won't work.
Ironically, macros are exactly what you need to go straight to those apps if you can't find discretes for them. If you had bought the 700 for a fraction of the cost of that 900, you'd have gotten the colored buttons, guide button, color screen and the macros you need.
