Problem is that then I have to use the top touchscreen programmable buttons as Vol +/- because the volume toggle I have set to the Denon. If the Denon is on, and running audio, the TV volume controls will pass along the volume command to the Denon, but the TV displays "Home theater Volume" directly on top of the Denon on-screen volume display. I want to disable the Panny's volume on-screen so that I can just have the harmony toggle programmed to the TV, but still see what the volume level is independent of sound control........
What is your objection to have separate Activities?
We use one for "Watch Uverse" which turns on TV and Uverse STB/DVR - volume buttons control TV.
Use a Second Activity of "Uverse Movie" which also turns on the HTR (or AVR - whatever) - now primary volume buttons control the HTR. But have programmed two "soft" buttons to control TV Vol, as often find that the TV is still running its speakers (Example: we switch from a News / Sports Talk show - tv speakers only - to a Movie/TV Program, where we want the surround sound.)
Additional Activities run Blu-ray and HDDVD players, each selecting the appropriate equipment & switching the HTR to the proper input.
The remote is "smart" enough NOT to toggle power switch for devices that will remain in use when switching activities.
Reasonably impressed all-in-all - although some of the Physical Buttons are becoming reluctant in use....
