Is there a way to control the TV volume while in the DVR menu? Thanks.
So you are watching your DVR, then you no longer want to watch your DVR, but want to just watch TV instead?
Don't turn the DVR off using device mode. This is going against the way Harmony's are designed to be used, and will confuse Smart State.
Instead, you should have a "Watch TV" activity set up, which only has the TV device in it.
When you are finished with the DVR, select "Watch TV" and it will turn the DVR off, leave the TV on and give you control of the TV.
Basically, you should set up as many activities as required to cover all the various viewing/listening situations you have, then let the remote look after all the power and input switching duties.
