Yes, if you're already on HDMI, pushing that button will switch to PC. If you switch to another input that you're not using first (ie: Video), then back to HDMI, it should go to HDMI, not PC.
Otherwise, the workaround is to not include the HDMI command in a macro that is fired when you're already on HDMI. Only include it in macros on devices that use other inputs. Also, when in those devices, program the "Off" macro to switch back to HDMI. That way the default state will be HDMI and you won't need to have that command in macros for devices using HDMI. I still don't see why they can't give you discrete access to each input though, as it's available via RS232 control.
