Logitech Harmony 700 and macros?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi
I just got this today
This I what I want to do: The 700 is to be used for a BD player, but I also want to be able to adjust the sound volume on the AV receiver without having to change the source
How do I do this?
Thanks
Jakob

Make a Watch Movie activity and pick your AV for vol control. That's the preferred way to get vol punch thru on a harmony.

Sounds simple, but...
The remote says that no of my two components (Cambrige BD player and Pioneer AVR) can be used for watching DVD's (can't select watch Blu-ray or BD player)
And why can't I choose the option on the remote "Watch a movie"?

If you use the "Generic Activity" option you will have much more control over how the activity works. It takes a little more time to set up because you have to assign every device & button manually but it works well and I use them all the time.

Example: On a Samsung TV with Smart HUB. My watch TV activity controls the cable box but I need TV functions to navigate Smart HUB.

1. Setup "Generic Activity"

2. Add: TV, AVR

3. When it asks you which input the TV needs to be on there is an option for "I dont need to change the input on TV"

4. Change input on AVR (if needed)

5. Add Smart HUB button press at the beginning of activity.

6. Assign every button that you need.

You get the idea. It gives you much more flexibility for your setup than the pre-labeled activities.
