I have a PS3 with the Harmony adapter. I have my current Harmony One programmed with the correct codeset and it works fine. I'm replacing the Harmony with the R50. I tried having the R50 learn all the commands from my Harmony One, but none of them work. I tried learning several times.

Am I missing something? There is no reason I can think of that this shouldn't work with the possible exception of the Power Off macro.

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated...

My understanding is that Harmony's PS3 protocol is unique and very difficult to learn. If the R50 is like most remotes, it will attempt to match learns to a known protocol. If that fails, then the learns won't work.

You may want to consider using HDMI CEC or a different adapter. Many cheap adapters like the $15 Nyko use standard sony DVD codes which are built in to your R50. The drawback is those cheap adapters won't do power. But you could build macros for Off. HDMI CEC works very well and doesn't require an adapter at all.

Thanks so much for your reply mdavej.

I think I will pick up the Nyko adapter since its cheap. That will get me all I need except power on. Easy macro for the turn off. Thanks again...
