I've read that folks w/ Harmony ones can SW wise replace w/ the 700 and have more than 6 devices.
Xmas lights turns on/off about half a dozen circuits in my home automation system when I want to override my timers. I don't decorate my TV for Christmas, but that's not a bad idea.Here's the LED stripe light I've got picked out for behind the backlight TV cabinet
Press record once to record the current program in the guide, twice to record the series. curious if the DVR mode this record would be a one touch?
Add all the commands you need for PIP to one remote. No need to juggle remotes.
Dave I could add all the comands to the one RCA however it would require switching modes
then channels thus twice the # of press's just a little to much thinking for me exspecialley since the DVR does'nt have a previous channel button (more thinking I prefer to do as little thinking as possiable.
Here's my last ? on the RCA.
RCA RCRP05BR will I need 3 Macros to jump between 2 Macros?
I have my RCA RCRP05BR remote programmed w/ code 1972 in DVR mode (for windows 7 media center). I have a Hewlart Packgard IR reciever.
I usalley start w/ watch TV (it’s macro works fine both on and off.
Here’s my watch TV macro
1.press mode AVR
2.power on w/ live button
3.set to AV1 button #4 (which I have a button programed on the RCA for)which is actualley HDMI2
5.power on TV
When I find there's nothing on TV to watch I press watch PC macro.
Since the AVR & TV are allready on, this is the watch PC macro I have.
1.press mode AVR
2.set AVR to HDMI 3 red button (which I have a button programed on the RCA for PC)
4.power on PC
Now if I decide to go back to TV from PC since I like to close WMC and power down PC (actuelly to sleep) I will need another Macro correct? macro 3 TV from PC.
4.press mode AVR
5.set to AV1 button #4 (which I have a button programed on the RCA for).
so now I can go back to watch TV.
I have two other devices a DVR and BD player that I intend on adding and forsee a few to many Macros for jumping back and forth between devices.
so I may just opt. to go the device route on these seldom used players .
Any suggestions would be apreciated
?when it comes to turning off the TV devices I press TV macro all turn off except for the Yamaha AVR (it requires two power buttons one Live for on and power for off) so I don't see a way to add a step six and keep the AVR on for TV macro. so I'm forced to press two buttons to completely power down from watch TV macro correct?
