BTW, since we are all unofficial beta testers anyway, why don't they open up the beta forums to all of us?

I think ceton is doing this because if one of these bricks an echo it isn't in the wild to brick everybody's echo.
Here it is. I have not tried this and am not sure how it would work with a Harmony but it should if you have the DVD menu button programmed to your harmony as I assume everybody has the MoreInfo button and Play button as these three get pressed together according to the instructions.
Echo "Special" Remote Control Sequences¶
The below are special remote control sequences that when turned off will enable or disable certain features on Echo. This will also be available via a Settings GUI in a future update.
Assigning Remote Control addresses¶
The RC-6 Mode 6A IR Protocols support multiple remotes and multiple Windows Media Center devices in the same room. The total number of separate remote control addresses is eight. The user should be able to change the address of the remote with a few simple keystrokes.
Programming the Remote Control address your Ceton Echo listens for¶
1.Turn off your Echo
2.Using your Remote Control enter in the below number sequence corresponding to the RC address you want
3.Change the Remote Control transmitting Remote Control address
24723370 = Resets the Echo to listen to any RC address. This is the default factory setting
24723371 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 1.
24723372 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 2.
24723373 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 3.
24723374 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 4.
24723375 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 5.
24723376 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 6.
24723377 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 7.
24723378 = Sets the Echo to only listen for RC address # 8.
Note: After changing the RC address the Echo listens for you will not be able to use the Remote Control unless it is configured for the same RC address
Setting the RC Address on the supplied Echo remote control¶
On the remote control, the end user simultaneously presses the INFO button plus a numeric button [1-8] for more than three seconds to change the remote control address.
Setting the CIR Address on standard eHome remote controls¶
On the remote control, the end user simultaneously presses the DVD MENU button plus a numeric button [1-8] for more than three seconds to change the remote control address. To indicate that the remote control address was changed successfully, the LED will blink twice. It is strongly recommended that all Windows Media Center remote controls support addressability.
Alternatively, the remote control address can also be changed by pressing the DVD MENU or MORE INFO button and a transport button for longer than three seconds. The transport buttons are Stop, Record, Pause, Rewind, Play, Fast Forward, Skip Back, and Skip Forward, and these buttons map to 1 through 8 respectively.
Setting the RC Address on the Media Center PC¶
Use the following registry key to enable your Media Center to only respond to a specific RC address.
Set CodeSetNum0 to the correspond RC address [0-8], where 0 resets to listen to any RC address.
Delete the below registry values
Note: You will need to reboot for the change to take effect.
