Hmmm. How about a decimal? How does the factory remote behave? You could always 'learn' that button from the factory remote, and assign that command to the key on the H1. I've done that before.

I found out what i was doing wrong, i used the word DASH for '-' when i shoild have used the symble '-' when having the remote learn it from tv remote. now when i hit a favorite it goes number the adds -1 so all well. Just still can't get it to stop at the right input not the one before the right one.

Go thru your device setup and ensure that all active inputs are listed in proper order. Some Tv's have the ability to shut off unused inputs.

hitachi L32A403. I know everytime it stops on HDMI 1 it turns on the samsung 6500 blue ray player which is driving me crazy.
post #10085 of 11255
You must have HDMI CEC turned on. You need to shut that off on the tv as it will conflict with Logitech's smart state.

HDMI CEC is nice if you are using a stock remote, as it will (like you said) turn on your blu ray player when it senses that input is being selected and allow you to control the device from the stock remote as well. Smart state gets screwed up because now devices are being powered up and inputs selected outside of the Harmony's activity process.

I have an annoyance that is happening with my new tv, it's very minor but hoping you guys could help me in solving it. I have a TC-P65ST50 Panasonic TV, and an Onkyo TX-NR818 Receiver. All my components are routed through the receiver to HDMI 1 of the TV set. Whenever I turn on or switch activities the tv's HDMI input menu screen comes on, it's minor but annoying to me. The thing is I was going through the remote commands in harmony software and this set does have direct input selection (hdmi 1, hdmi 2, hdmi 3) rather than the "input" command it is using each time which brings up the input menu for a 2 secs. How do I get the remote to use the hdmi 1 command, or no command at all (being that every source I have goes to hdmi 1). Thanks

edit: Never mind, solved it on my own. Had to go into devices tv settings and adjust inputs.

Hi,
I've had my remote set up for about a year and it's been working fine until recently. Now, two of my sequences no longer complete themselves.
How do you change the delays in a sequence? I can't find an option for that.
Thanks

post #10088 of 11255
Do you literally mean sequence or activity? You have no control over delays in sequences besides the global interkey delays. For changing delays in activities, you can add delays to additional commands, change power on delays, interkey and interdevice delays. This is assuming you don't use MyHarmony.com but the 7.7 software. If you are in Europe, you may have a Harmony One Plus that uses MyHarmony.

On the other hand, since your harmony probably hasn't changed, your devices may have. For example, if you have DirecTV, their frequent software updates usually result in worse and worse remote response. In that case, there's not much you can do but increase the interkey delay on your DirecTV device.

I don't use MyHarmony.com and I'm trying to change a delay within a sequence. I've got sequences set up to get me in and out of 3D mode (numerous functions from the TV menu) which have worked fine for a year. But it seems that the last command within each sequence is not registering anymore and I think if I delay that command they will work. These sequences have worked until recently.
So yes, I'm trying to change the delay between functions within a sequence, not within an activity.
Thanks.

Add a nonsense function, then, assuming you haven't maxed out you number of sequences.

My Harmony One controls everything just fine when I'm in my TV room but when I go on the back porch to enjoy a fine cigar, for some reason, I can't control my Pioneer BDP-95 FD blu -ray player. All of my other equipment (Onkyo 705 A/V receiver and Cox Cable DVR) respond without a hitch. There's a large glass in the door thru which I view and send the remote signals and all of the components mentioned are in the same wooden cabinet. Is there some way to "boost" the existing signals for the blu-ray player or is it possible that it's more sensitive than the receivers on the other units?

Thanks,

Jack

120inna55,
I'll try that, but you could you give me a quick run through explaining how to add a dummy command.

Thanks.
post #10093 of 11255
He just means a command that has no effect in the current context. That gives you close to a 1 second delay, but burns one of your 5 steps. For example, if my sequence navigates menus, then I'll throw in a number command or something like that.

Got it, thanks.

Question on Multi-channel input. I have a new Harmony One remote. My receiver is a Yamaha RX-V2500. I use the multi-channel input on the Yamaha for sound when watching a DVD on my Blu-Ray player. When I click on "Watch DVD" the receiver will switch to the Multi-Channel input just fine. However, when I want to switch back to "Watch TV" the receiver will NOT switch back to the correct input . I have even tried adding extra commands on the remote telling it to do so. So, the problem is that the receiver will switch TO the multi-channel input just fine, but once it is on the multi-channel input it will NOT switch to any other input remotely from the Harmony. I have to do it manually or switch to the Yamaha remote,which defeats the purpose of the Harmony remote. Any ideas?

Pretty sure that receiver has discreet input codes that can be used to go directly to the required input as opposed to cycling through them.

If not, manually cycle through the inputs to see if some take longer to change than others. I have found that some inputs (specifically HDMI) on some devices take longer to change to (they stop and look for a signal for a moment before the unit will accept any more IR commands). If that is what is happening, you need to decrease the rate at which the Harmony sends the commands to that device to the longest that it takes the slowest responding input time to change to.

Thanks, but I already checked that. Once it changes to the multi-channel input it will not change back to any other input (such as cable/satellite in this case). The Harmony changes the correct TV input to what I want, but it will not change the input on the receiver from Multi-channel to any other input.

It would help to know how you would change the input from multi-channel to any other input when using the standard remote.

I replaced my DirecTV HR24 DVR with model HR34. So far, things work fine without adding the new DVR to my Harmony One. Should I bother replacing the device in Harmony software? What's the best way to do this?

There isn't any difference in the controls so all should work. If someone knows if there's a direct command for PIP that would be great, though.
That's the only detail that's different in the 34.

Thanks. I think I'll leave it alone since everything is working fine.
post #10103 of 11255
I did try searching but couldn't find an answer to my issue (although it may have been poor searching on my part).

I have an activity, turn on bluray, avr and then TV.

I want to allow the bluray to do it's internal turn on stuff before the AVR and TV are turned on.

What I need is:

- turn on bluray
- pause (say five seconds) and then
- turn on AVR
- turn on TV

I've added the five second pause to my bluray player but I think that simply means don't allow any signals to that device. I don't want any signals sent to any device.

What's the best (and simplest) way to do this?

thanks

Try device tab --> settings for the Bluray --> Adjust the delays (speed settings) --> Inter-device delay

Thanks hartlenb. I just tried your suggestion, but instead of turning on my bluray player and then pausing for five seconds, I press the activity button and nothing happens for five seconds and then my bluray, avr and tv all turn on.

Any clues as to what I'm doing wrong?

UPDATE: Okay, worked it out (with help of Logitech support). I was adjusting the inter-device delay for my bluray player. I need to adjust it for the AVR and TV.

Thanks

blairy, glad you got it worked out. It just struck me that the delays you set will be associated with the device (which you may not want). If it's an issue and you just wanted to give the BD player time to spin up when you select the activity, there is another way to insert delays into the activity sequence (without applying the delays to every device command),

To add an extra Device, Delay or Command to an Activity:
  • Click theActivities tab on your home page.
  • Click the Settings button beside the appropriate activity.
  • Select Review the settings for this Activity.
  • Select Yes, but I want to add more control of options and devices for this Activity, and then click Next.
  • Click Add next to the device(s) you want to control in the activity and click Save to continue setting up the activity.
  • Follow the online instructions until you reach the page with the heading Custom Actions.
  • In either the Start Actions or Leave Actions table select the appropriate device to add action for, and then click Add.
  • From the next page, select the required IR command, delay, or input from the drop down lists.
  • You will be returned to the previous page and will see that the new operation has been added.
  • Click the Save button to save your changes and return to your home page.

Having trouble figuring out how to get the H1 to take back control of the Internet input on my P60GT50 when the activity button is pressed for it.

1) TV gets set to "Internet" (this was under the Utility mode for generic actions, as Harmony did not automatically program this in).
2) AVR gets set to 'TV"

I need a third function to get the H1 back to having the directional-pad/play/pause/etc back to controlling my streaming content. currently I have to press "Devices" , then "TV" on the H1 to get back to this. I've tried and tried and I keep failing miserably.

Could really use some help here.

Thanks!
Jason

I have the Apple TV, 3rd generation and wanted to add control of it through my Harmony One but cannot find it in the device data base. I have it connected through my receiver so no problem when I configured it on and switched to proper input but I have no control of it and must use the Apple remote. Any suggestions?

hello, looking for some help. My remote takes quite a while to complete a Watch TV activity. I'm hoping to cut the time down a bit but I have no idea why it takes so long.

The activity turns on the following equipment in this order:

Mitsubishi HC4000 projector
U-verse VIP-1225
Yamaha RX-A3000

then it sets them to the following:

U-verse is set to "Tuner"
Mitsubishi is set to "HDMI"
RXA3000 is set to "Av 1"

This is all fairly simple I would think and it should run through the activity in just a few seconds, but it takes at least 45 seconds to over a minute it seems. Any ideas?

The "Power on Delay" is set for a long period of time because Logitech feels that this is how long it takes for your projector to turn on and warm up before it will accept an "input" command.

If you only use one input on your PJ, you can turn this delay down because the projector will not need to change inputs. Go to DEVICES / SETTINGS / DELAY (Speed settings) / POWER ON DELAY. Change the value to 5000 ms (5 seconds).

If you use more than one input on the PJ you can still use this method just make sure you always start & end with the Watch TV activity. This way the PJ will always be on the right input when you start it up.
