Thanks for the response...I understand what you're describing.
I think I have another workaround, for my particular case. The 2 commands that ARE available are "DirectionLeft" and "DirectionRight". Well, on the Monoprice HDMI switch remote, those buttons change the input too. So I can use those to "reset" my HDMI input to 1 during a power off.
All my activities involve the HDMI switch. Since every activity sets the HDMI switch to a certain input, it shouldn't matter if I want to set it to a different input during Power Off. Again, if I could just get my family to use the Harmony remote all the time, this would be moot.
