For 1) Select "Customize" for the "Watch PVR" activity, then select "Change behaviour of buttons". You will get a screen where you can assign any funtion to any button you want(almost). LCD "soft" buttons are down the bottom.

For 2) I'm not sure...it might be something to do with the order devices are powered up...I think that can be an issue with HDMI. Best thing to do is contact tech support who can define the order devices are powered up in. You might also have to increase the power on delay for the receiver, but tech support can do that for you at the same time(ask to speak to tier 2 support if you don't have any luck with tier 1)

Thanks, czzer! I was trying to adjust the devices rather than the activity. Adding the PVR function button was a piece of cake, but I still don't know what the A and B buttons are for -- not listed on the screen and they seem to do nothing.

I'll check the i-Link function tomorrow when I can reach tech support.

Thanks again!

Own power supply.

This pisses me off so badly. Last night I won a "questionable" 880 off ebay, already paid for it and everything, then saw the Dell offer on slickdeals this morning.
Almost tempted to try and get out of the whole ebay buy so I can get a new one from dell.

Anyone controlling a scientific atlantan 8300hd cable box? I have the delay set to zero however when I hit fast forward, play etc the box or remote is responding slowly. Additonally when entering channel numbers it takes about a second per number to appear on the cable box. Anyone experience the same problem and/or have a resolution

Yea, that's a better deal than I got from them 2 days ago. I think I can use the $20 rebate though. I tried calling dell for pricing protection...but they said I couldn't get a refund for the difference. It is not worth it to me to return it to get another one at the new price to save $20...especially since mine is supposed to be delivered today...I can't wait!

I had the exact same problem the first time I used the 880 with my 8300HD. I'm not exactly sure what was wrong but all I did was: remove the 8300 from my config, re-install it and re-upload to my 880. No problem since...

i love this thing so far!

took about 5 hours to setup. About 45mins on the phone with tech support for a custom setup for the Westinghouse TV, I have it set up just the way I want it so far. Its really a great thing!

ill do a mini review up this weekend from work
post #253 of 6264
Probably has been answered already but it's a lot of pages to get through so hopefully someone is willing to answer Just ordered the remote from Dell

Ok. What I want to know is if you can have activities switch picture modes and aspect/zoom levels when switching. The issue is that I may have to buy a hdmi switch down the road and was wondering whether if i'm going to be able to switch through picture configs automatically while still staying in the same input

Any HK AVR635 owners or Samsung HL-SxxxxW owners have luck using the Harmony 880?

dude ... lol...

I just got mine from dell today, I intended on it taking a while to get setup "just right" and it did, but it was cool and I completely learned how to configure the remote.

I am very very happy about this remote, I can honestly say all the remotes, 5 in total, are tucked in the drawer! This thing is so bad ass. Its already passed the girlfriend test. Hope you enjoy yours.

GSR did you call Harmony support? They hooked up my Westinghouse TV with a special setup over the phone, the online configuration told me i needed to call them, and they fixed it all up, Tier 2 support did btw.

Is there something in particular about those models that doesnt work with the remote or something?

i googled the HK AVR635 cuz i didnt know what it was, that thing looks bad ass btw, they gotta have someting for that I imagine
post #257 of 6264
I don't have the 880 yet, just exploring my options to see what's supported for my equipment before pulling the trigger. I'm sure the Dell deal will come around again soon.
post #258 of 6264
Does anybody know if there is a way to get the 880 to turn on/off a light using an x10 setup? If that's not possible, is there some other IR adapter or something I can use to get it to control my lights? I've read through all 9 pages before posting this, but didn't see anything about x10 in here.

Thanks!

Thanks, I'll check it out. Funny how I have an idea for something, and discover there is a product for it.

So - the Harmony 880 works well with this x10 IR-543 console?

Did anyone get the Intel OS X beta from Logitech before they stopped distributing it? I really need to update my remote.

Works great if set up properly. Just add the IR-543 like you would any other device and then put it in your current activities, create a new lighting activity, or both. Here's a thread showing others that have done it.

Thanks to those who posted the great deal from Dell. I ordered one last night which will be our second 880. It will replace a 659 which I've been using on my main system for a couple of years. The 659 will be relagated to my basement system so I'll now have 3 Harmony's in the house. Two factors persuaded me to upgrade to the 880 on my main system:

1. Not having to replace the batteries
2. The 880 sends a stronger signal than the 659, especially when the 659's batteries are no longer fresh. One of my components, a Motorola DVR, is partially obstructed and unless the 659's batteries are very fresh it does not recognize the commands unless you "reach and point." Based on my experience with the 880 in our bedroom system, I shouldn't have this problem once I get the 880.

About the only thing I like better about the 659 is the channel numbers are easier to work with than the 880's. They are the hard button type, placed in the middle of the remote, and you can change channels by feel. Conversely, the DVR functions are easier to use on the 880, so this will be a plus.

Is the remote supposed to turn off the TV after updating it? So I am watching TV and I update my remote, after it reboots it asks me if everything is ok and I say yes, then it turns off my TV/Cable box and then I have to hit Watch TV to get it to come back on

Also how do I control the TV Menu instead of the cable box Menu with the arrow keys? Do I have to go to Devices then navigate to the TV's Menu? After setting up the buttons? I can get the TV Menu to come on, but cant navigate it.

I have a Hitachi 42HDS52A.
post #267 of 6264
When you update the remote it forgets what state everything is in, it assumes everything is off.
post #268 of 6264
I just received my remote today. Do the number keys normally have some "play" in them? They seem to wiggle a little more than I'd like them to (nothing really drastic). Heck I like the buttons better on my Sony RM-V202, which was much less. But, I will give it some time, as it is charging now.

Also, my Zero does not "click" like the other number keys do - is that normal?

\\/\\/\\/ - I guess what I mean is, the zero has a faint click sound, while the others are clearly audible. Sorry I'm being picky - it's just that I've never spent this much on a remote before, and I've had nightmare's returning anything through Dell.
post #269 of 6264
My zero button clicks.
post #270 of 6264
Im sure this has been coverd but will the 880 control the Lutron Maestro IR lights basically turn them up and down and incorporate them into a macro so it will dim them when i push play on the dvd player?
Thanks
