Also remember to tell her to keep the remote pointed at your setup until all components are on, and properly working. There are delays as each device is turned on and set to its proper input or whatever. These delay settings can be tweaked to get everything working more smoothly. You can also call Logitech support, they are excellent.

wow thanks. quite helpful. i'll set about studying the software asap. it's not in any activity, other than it's own, and it's set to stay on all the time in the remote.

i think there's just something funky with the a/c's remote commands, or logitech's interpretation of them. i matched the exact model number with what's in logitech's database, and it shows extra i/r commands which are not present on the remote and are not recognized by the a/c.

kudos to gary and to beerstalker... thanks...

as long as i'm being greedy...

i sure wish "prevchannel" would work with the channel number padded... then favorites would change real quickly... you still have to wait for it to recogize that you aren't putting in the 4th digit before the channel change actually occurs...

WHOO HOO! Now thats what I'm talking about. Thanks, my favs were so slow but now they fly. I appreciate it.

that should do it...

I just tried these changes on my DirecTV HR-700. The difference in speed is astounding.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Try completely deleting the A/C device and activity from your remote, and then running whatever activity is causing you problems.

One of your TV/receiver/other device commands may be really similar to the power command for your A/C, and it might be causing it to turn on and off. I have a similar problem where the remote signals for my Lutron Maestro light dimmer are very similar to the Video 1 input signal on my receiver. So any time I turn my lights on or off it causes my receiver to change to the video 1 input.

If this is your problem you will need to track down which command is causing the issue and see if you can get by without using that command in your activity. Otherwise you will probably need a different A/C unit.

burt and judge... thanks, although i can only take the credit for trying things out and posting the results... the other guys came up with the answers...

make sure to do the part about sending an "enter/select" after the numbers if it doesn't change right away...

edit: also make sure to check the number of repeats and try it at 0...

i did a little experimenting with other devices... most of all of them (as someone noted) will work just fine with zero or minimal delay... not only does that make everything faster, but it also cuts down significantly on "failure rate", since the remote doesn't have to remained aimed correctly nearly as long... that might also help the guy who has the significant other that struggles with the remote...

yep, that's exactly what's happening. i deleted the a/c completely from the harmony and reran my normal activities. the a/c turned on

oh well. it wasn't an absolute necessity to have remote control anyway, and a small piece of electrical tape over the a/c's ir port solved the problem. thanks.
Beerstalker's Avatar Beerstalker 08:21 PM 08-17-2008
Glad you figured out that was the issue and not your remote programming. Sucks that is the case though. Try to narrow down what command it is that causes the issue. You might be able to work around it. If it's something like the volume command though you are pretty much screwed.

How to I change the delay time from the time my pj turns on and then switches inputs? I was looking at the software and there are like 4 boxes to change and I dont know which one.

However, for some reason when she does it, sometimes only one thing powers on while the other doesn't. Sometimes the TV does turn on, but switches to Input 1 and not HDMI 1.

I just got the Nyko Wireless IR remote so that I could also use the Harmony One to control my PS3, but that doesn't work either.

Where is a good faq, troubleshooting page I can go to, to see if I can fix my problems, or this remote is going into the trash. I hate when I am working or out of town and my wife is calling because she can't watch any TV.

This control was supposed to make things easier.

Try changing the order that the devices are powered on in. I had a similar issue where my FIOS DVR wasn't turning on, just the TV and Receiver where the order was TV, DVR, Receiver. I swapped the order to be DVR, TV, Receiver and it fixed it. Also play with the delays as well.

Does anyone know how long it normally takes Logitech to add new devices to their database? I just bought a brand new receiver and it's not listed. Is there someplace I can go to speed this process along?

Try last years model. They sometimes work.

I already did and it works, but I'd like to one that matches exactly due to some features being slightly different between the two models.

You could always learn the missing codes you need in the meantime. Pretty easy to do.

And I will. And I'll delete the codes that don't work. I know you guys are trying to help, but I didn't need a workaround, I just wanted to know how long it normally took and if there was a way to speed that along. Just say "I don't know" if you don't know
Gary J's Avatar Gary J 04:32 PM 08-18-2008
Yes there is a way to speed it along. You can find out how in the thread for the brand new Denon AVR-1909.

I am in the process to switching to a directv setup. I used to plug the TV into the cable box outlet because when turned off, it still made a weird high pitched noise. Essentially having the cable box "unplug" it solved the problem. Directv boxes do not have such a noutlet, so I devised a way that I could use my receiver's switched outlet to turn the tv on and off. The problem is now that the timing is off for setting the input on my old Toshiba 50hdx82 RPTV. I think it's because the receiver takes longer to switch the tv on. Even putting the receiver at the first position for turning it on and the TV at the last doesn't solve it. What I'm trying to do is delay the remote sending of the separate input key so that it actually picks it up. Does setting the power on delay do anything if the tv is checked as "always set to on?"

No, but what you can do is go ahead and set the TV power settings up, but when it asks you for the command, use something harmless instead of the power command. As an example, my tv commands from harmony had an input8; but my tv only has 7. So when I send this command nothing happens. I'm sure you have something just as harmless to use.

After you've done that, then the power on delay will work the way you want it.

Harmony has screwed up input codes for Mitsubishi wd-65735/6. If you hit input 2 it actually goes to input 3. Since the Mitsu remote doesn't have individual input buttons, there is no way for me to program the remote via the learn function. Any thoughts on what I can do?

is there a command for the mits that "rotates" through your inputs? if so, set something up that issues it enough times to get from input 3 to input 2...

dunno if harmony will fix it if you tell them about it, it's worth sending them an email...

Or use input 3 on the TV--assuming it's available?
roccol's Avatar roccol 02:49 PM 08-20-2008
Input 3 does not support component cables, so I am stuck. I have had no sucees with trying to program a macro to get to Input2.

Ahh..too bad.

How do you get to input 3 with the Mits remote?
roccol's Avatar roccol 04:30 PM 08-20-2008
You hit the input button and then use the arrows keys to move the cursor and then click select when you are on the correct input.

I have this somewhat working now, but it is flaky.

Just picked up a opened box "One" at my local BB for $175
And all I could tell the first person had done was peal off the screen guard and then put it back on.
Everything in in mint condition. Glad I took the time to drop in their high priced store this time.

So does it work in device mode?
roccol's Avatar roccol 06:59 AM 08-21-2008
No, the analog inputs do not work properly in device mode. Input2 goes to Input 3 and Input 3 goes to INput 4.
