Maybe you could just give one or two examples for him???

Thanks for all your help.

When using RF on the 900 is it possible to turn the IR off or does it do both? I had some issues on my Pronto when I did't realize it was doing both for some components. If you were facing the TV you would get a different result than if you weren't.

I think it does just one or the other for each device. From what I understand it can communicate with a device via IR or it can communicate with the base station via RF. The base station can then send the appropriate IR signals out. Make sense?

Yes thanks.

When you configure your devices you specify IR directly or RF to IR for each device. A common setup would have the TV configured for IR directly, and all the other devices configured for RF.

Perfect, I have all of my equipment behind a wall and I also put an IR repeater on the TV and currently run my Pronto with RF for everything. Even though the TV could be IR I prefer to have everything RF so I never have to worry about a signal being blocked.

I recently switched our TV to RF because of a new and bigger center channel speaker.

Which center channel do you have?

My 900 arrived today and I have been messing around with it most of the afternoon. It was a replacement for a Pronto remote and in my opinion a good one. The remote was dead ass simple to program, maybe that's because I have spent the last few years using a Pronto and that takes some time to learn but in any case it is up and running. I have everything setup and running as expected with one small issue; I have some favorite channels with icon and about 10 to 20% of the time they don't get all the numbers in and I get the incorrect channel. My guess is that I probably need to move the RF receiver to a better place? Could it be something else or is it most likely an RF issue?

Try increasing the inter-key delay and retest. It sounds like it may be sending the key presses quicker than your TV / box can accept them.

Thanks for the reply got it working now.

When using discrete power commands does the 900 still remeber the power state of the device or does it always send the command?

In other words if I use activity "Watch Popcorn Hour" after using "Watch TV" does the 900 know the TV is on so it doesn't send the "power on" command again or does it send it everytime just to be sure?
post #2116 of 2789
Don't know but why would it send it again and add time it takes to execute an activity?

I have been using a Pronto for years and when setting up my macros I always included the discrete power on command in all my macros just to insure the TV was on and the receiver was on so I was just curious if the 900 did the same. I would suspect that sending the command would take very little time and would add no detectable time the activity sequence. Probably not necessary but I was just curious.
post #2118 of 2789
When you add things like tuning a channel to a Watch TV activity they can get a bit lengthy. Using the Help button for an occasional missed command seems preferable to added Activity execution time.

It does remember the state of each device and won't send the command again. However, you can add additional commands to execute every time the activity is selected if you prefer (I.e. discrete power on signal)

I also switched from Pronto (TSU7500) a few months ago and am very happy with the H900.
You don't have to worry about the tv power. If you switch from one activity to another, both of which incorporate the tv, the tv will remain on. Conversely, if you go to an activity which does not need the tv, such as a cd player, the tv will be turned off. For instance, if I am watching my dvr, and switch to a dvd player, the dvd player will turn on and the dvr will turn off.
Each activity knows which devices are needed, and if one or more of the devices are being used in the previous activity, they will remain on.

My harmony 900 keeps turning up my volume on my denon 4311 on its own during AirPlay. The first time it happened when the battery was low, then I noticed it happened again while in my audio trim menu messing with my subwoofer bass trim, the volume turned all the way down and then BOOM back up again, it scared the crap out of me. Why is it doing this? Can I disable the volume control on my iPad ? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks...I am also happy with the change, the addition of all of the hard buttons make it so much easier to use.

Is anyone using their 900 with a logitech revue?

I searched the thread and got 0 results.

Since getting my revue my opinion of my 900 has plummeted. It's become nearly unusable.

If you have this setup and found a way to make the 900 more responsive please post your changes to the revue and 900. I've switch from RF to IR to control the revue to cut out some delay and missed commands, but overall the 900- is now complete garbage when using the revue. The revue keyboard is very responsive, but I don't want to use it for channel surfing.

My biggest issue is changing channels on my directv hr22. sometimes when I enter a channel like 331 it sends a 3 then a d instead of 33. Or channel 269 ends up being 222. Sometimes it will literally take over a dozen tries to change to a specific channel. Now granted the hr22 has always been slow to respond to my 900, but now it's nearly useless.

This remote is supposed to make tv viewing more stream lined, not make the stock remote look better and better every day.

When I added the Revue the behavior of my 900 was unchanged with the cable box. That leaves the DirectTV box as the difference.

But are you using the revue the way it was designed? As in your cable box connects to the revue and the revue to your tv or avr? So your 900 sends commands to the revue (either directly through IR or using the blaster) and the revue sends those commands to the cable box.

My issue is present since adding the revue. I've read elsewhere that the revue suffers from interference with many tvs. I should also ask is your equipment hidden away in a cabinet or something?

The 900 is not your problem. Try here.

I'm assuming you mean the part where I try to find an old floppy disk and tape it to my revue?

Basically I should just give up on either the revue or the 900. One of them is going to end up smashed into tiny pieces if logitech doesn't get this sorted.
post #2128 of 2789
If you read the thread and the other Revue threads many of us added Revues to our setups that included Harmony remotes. This is a you problem.
post #2129 of 2789
Anyone have any thoughts on mypost above?

Wow, not sure why you're so hostile, but surely it's unwarranted. I read the thread you posted and the floppy disk thing was the only half solution I found that pertained to my issues. If you had some other possible solution in mind then please share it. If you mean this thread, I've tried searching it for the word revue and got 0 results. There's a TON of posts to go through just to manually find revue related posts.

Seriously, if you know how to fix my issue please share!! I've been searching the logitech forums and google for a couple months now to no avail.

So instead of being an apologist for logitech, let me know how you got yours working so well. Also you never did mention how you have your review hooked up. At this point I'm guessing you use it as a stand alone device and don't actually have your stb connected through it.
