I believe the shipment has been delayed due to a delay in getting the codes into Harmony's database. I've read through the installation instructions that AudioAuthority emailed me.
In essence, it appears owners will have the ability to program macros (system shutdown, etc) via PC software and upload them into BlueBeam via USB.
I checked today and AudioAuthority is listed as a manufacturer under Game Console (with DVD) in Harmony's database. I was able to add BlueBeam as the "model."
There is some language in the documentation that suggests that BlueBeam requires an AudioAuthority IR extender and won't work with those from other manufacturers. This is a concern as my system is from Sonance and I had planned to utilize the BlueBeam direct IR-in.
I don't have the device yet, but I'll try to remember to post a comment after I receive it.
