Sorry for the delay, BP.
Right, I actually added the device 'IR4PS3', but renamed it PS3. When I selected "add an activity" in my 880, you have the option of letting the 880 tell you what activities are appropriate (I believe based on your devices), or you can choose to create your own. I always create my own.
I couldn't be happier with this unit. I have my hard menu button mapped to the IR4PS3 'pop-up menu', have hard info mapped to 'select'. Have a custom button in my LCD named 'xmb', which maps to the IR4PS3 'power toggle'.
Question for all - I have one of my hard buttons mapped to the PS3 triangle, which pulls up an onscreen menu of options. One of these options is 'instant replay', which acts like TiVo - it replays the last 5 or so seconds. This menu also has 'slow fwd'. Has anyone figured out how to map directly to these commands? A default button for the IR4PS3 is 'slow fwd', and also 'slow rev' (or something similar), but neither work. The only way I can get my PS3 to slow rev or fwd is via the onscreen menu obtained via triangle.
I may call Logitech and see if they can add these commands to the database.
EDIT: Also, I have told my 880 that the PS3 has no power on, power off buttons. I've added 'power on" at the beginning of my activity sequence, and added 'power off' as custom LCD button. The reason is that if I am downloading a large file via PS3, I do not want my PS3 to shutoff and thus stop downloading. So if I'm not downloading anything, I simply hit the single custom button, then the main 'all off', and I'm good to go. Sweet sweet sweet. Awesome product, Ben. Major kudos to you.
