A computer DVR works the same as a Tivo or Cable/Sat DVR. It respects the copy protection. "Copy Once" can be recorded, "Copy Never" can't. You'd usually only see the latter on a high priced PPV...

Actually Harmony very recently started working with the PS4, at least the newer hub based remotes. You should also be able to do limited control from any remote using CEC (Bravia Sync).

The 900 has no hub and no Bluetooth. I still don't see how you can control it with a 900 unless you're using HDMI CEC. Are you sure you have a 900?

Codes should be the same. Looks like AWE-Europe has moved their docs. You probably have to be a dealer to gain access now. Try Onkyo's own support site. But I don't think you'll need any more...

Sorry, but I strongly disagree. There is no way every command you need is going to be passed over HDMI. Just enabling HDMI control wreaks havoc with Harmony anyway, knocking the state tracking out of...
