Are you saying that (within the Harmony Desktop software) I can go into the Device settings and specify using an "On" command vs. the current "Power" command?
Thanks for your assistance, btw.
you've confirmed that the soft button 'on' works for turning it on. if the tv is already on, and you press that command again, does anything happen? (in short, is it a true discrete command?) when working in the device area on the remote, does the 'power' command always work to turn off the tv, but never on? is there another command labeled 'off'? does that command function as a true discrete or a toggle?
in the desktop setup...device tab, settings for the tv, adjust power settings.
there you will be able to select the correct power settings...likely you'll need to set it up as separate commands for on and off...select on for on and either off or power for off.
these device level power settings feed the activity usage
