Most of the startup delay for an activity is introduced by the warm-up time needed for a device since sending the power-on command until sending another command (like changing inputs), especially for TVs, so I guess that lowering the interdevice delay won't help you so much.
I said "if you can". Maybe I should be saying "if your devices supports this". So check their user manuals.
I suppose your DVD players are the same vendor/model (by the way, i don't see the reason for using two identical players in the same room), so if you can configure your players to accept different sets of IR codes, then you will be able to do want you want. If not, then ... not.
Maybe this info will help you: "The remote has Smart State technology that tracks what the power/input status of the devices are, but this only tracks changes that are expected based on the activity programming. If you change the power/input status of a device manually, using the original remote control or using the device menu, the Harmony activity does not know that a change has taken place. As a result, the remote may get 'out of synch.' Typically, using the help button...
You might need to try increasing the inter-device delay for the third device (the DVR). Devices -> DVR -> Settings -> Adjust the delays (speed settings) -> Next .... Next -> Done .... Done, then update the remote I think this way you can add a delay only after all the devices for the activity are already on.

I gave you an answer here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1301598
1) Setup your Watch TV activity to start all the devices you need and choose the soundbar to control volume for the activity. 2) Yes, it is possible to customize buttons for the Watch TV activity (I think every button should be customizable, or at least those labeled 1,2,3,4, above Menu and Info buttons)

The damn TV remote needs to use two buttons and the directional pad to change "activities" (which basically changes inputs between ANT, HDMIs 1-4, or VUDU).
