Harmony Remotes and "Smart TV"

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I just picked up new Sharp LC-70LE8470U over the weekend and re-programmed my old Harmony 880 to work with it. I was able to get it all set up and working easily enough, but then realized that the direction buttons were mapped to my Comcast Cable box in my "Watch Cable" activity, so even though I had added the "Netflix" and "Apps" to my "Watch Cable" soft keys, I do anything once they came up. I went back and used additional soft keys at the top to create a page for the TV's direction control. Now I am able to use the Smart Features of the TV, but figured there had to be a more elegant approach. How do you all handle this? Do you just create an Activity for using the Smart features of the TV?

Thanks,
Dave

Yes, create a Use Smart TV activity. That could exclude the cable box entirely. The direction buttons would be mapped to the TV's buttons.

That's what I figured would be the easiest way, just wanted to be sure.

Thanks,
Dave
