Does anybody else running Windows 7 have this problem? How about Windows 8? I'm going to be upgrading soon and I'd like to know if I'll have the same problem.

I've been using my Harmony One with Windows 7 for several years with no problems. You could try to update your software or firmware from the "Downloads" area of the Harmony software.

I just started having an issue with my One that I have had for over 5 years. I have a Tivo Premiere and wanted to change a couple of the lcd buttons from what I had programmed a few months ago when I purchased the box. Well when the remote finished updating there was a button stuck in the #3 position that is from my old Dish vip722 box. I have tried all sorts of finagling with the thing (clearing all buttons, resetting to default, etc.) to no avail. Has anyone else seen or even heard of this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Same here, though about 75% of the time I get the "busy server" message. In all fairness, I haven't been on in a few months.

Thanks for the tip. I was able to find another USB today and tried that. 3rd time the charm. I have never had a situation where the USB cable said it worked, but it didn't work 100% of the way.

I am running the 7.7.0 software on Windows 8.

The only problem I have found is that it doesn't remember my login details, even though I check the "Remember me on this computer" box I have to log in every use.

Other than that, it runs fine

When I first got my Harmony One a couple of years ago, I set it up using the PC software. I set it up once and my AV system remained unchanged for years, until yesterday.
As I've changed my PC, I didn't have the PC software installed any more. So I used the web based software.
Everything works fine, but the display looks different. I cant say exactly how, its like it has a different 'theme' or something.
The on screen buttons for my Sky+ HD remotes colour buttons used to be the actuall colour, i.e. red yellow green etc. But now they are all the same colour.

How can I get these buttons to be coloured again?
Do the web based and PC based softwares work differently? Is one better than the other?
I had to set up a custom activity for my Raspberry Pi, is there a way to change the picture associated with an activity?

I like how the time always displays correctly now, it used to stop if the battery ran out.

Logitech is selling off the Harmony line.

I have 3 Harmony Ones and was about to buy some more, maybe not now.

They are shopping their line but have no one interested at this time. Nothing will change in the near future.

Depends - things were much better BEFORE Logitech bought the Harmony company.

I'm wondering, I just figured out how to add my Klipsch RW-12D to "My Devices" on my Harmony. Any benefit / use to being able to control the subwoofer with the remote? Also, I'm expecting delivery of my second RW-12D today - how will the remote handle the fact that there are 2 of the same sub?

Thanks smile.gif

Nothing to do with Windows 8. Something changed a few weeks ago where your login ID is not saved. It was fine in late December, but changed in early January.

Awesome, then I can confirm that the 7.7.0 software works fine with Windows 8

CallLogitech, I had a problem with an older remote and they took care of me, gave me an updated remote at a huge discount. This was several years ago though.

From a page or 2 back, someone posted a photo of their remote with the bad display. I tried to "quote" but I may have hit "reply"....

After a couple of years of great use with my Harmony One its starting to act-up.

We click on any one of the activities and it goes to the activity just fine. Then during the TV/movie/music experience, for no apparent reason, the remote goes back to the activity menu. Obviousely at this point I cant click the volume, channel or menu because its back to activities. I then have to click on the activity again and it starts up everything again. On occasions it shuts down giving me a black screen which forces me to take off the battery and "jump start it".

I've connected it to the PC, logged on to the Harmony page and hoped some kind of update would happen, but no luck.

Any ideas?

Can't you just press the physical "Activities" button at this point instead of starting up the activity again? I'm not disputing that there's something wrong, but at least this would keep you from having to re-sync. Is it possible the physical "Activities" button is sticking? Maybe remove the battery and work the button a little bit to loosen it up.

Change out the battery.

Na the button is not sticking since on the One activities are controlled on the touch screen. When it goes to activities on its own I have no choice but to touch on activity again and it cycles through everything again, most of the time "confusing" the TV or cable box and I have to click the Help button (actual button). Hassle and replacing it would not be cheap.

Have you tried a restart of the H1? Remove the battery for 10 seconds and pop it back in.

If the remote is failing you may be able to pick up a replacement or reconditioned unit for a good price.

Heh... You're not hearing me. I'm referring to the physical hard button that is labeled "Activities" that is immediately to the left of the "Help" button. Will it not toggle you back to your current activity screen without having to re-sync.

I want to add an on screen button for Pandora radio to my harmony one for a Yamaha rx-2010. Can anyone help me with this?

I figured out that the net button will scroll through various inputs(one of which is Pandora), but I would really like to have a separate button for this function. Any ideas out there?

sounds like the remotes are going away, or at least being cut down to almost nothing. Sad day.

I saw this article this morning. http://www.customretailer.net/article/logitech-sell-harmony-remote-division-25057126/1 A sad day indeed. There are plenty of apps for our phones and tablets, but I prefer a remote with hard buttons. Apps have their place, but there needs to be a place for hard button remotes also. I hope someone buys them and keeps the site up to date. My fiancé will not be able to operate my A/V system without it. frown.gif

That sucks, I think the "One" was one of the best home theater products in years.

+1 to that. Out of all of my gear my ONE gets the most use and easily gives me the most value for what I paid for it. Hope they turn it around or get a buyer that can!

After a couple of hours I realized I just needed to set up an activity named Pandora using the net button as an input. Doh!!!!!!! Better get all those customizations in that I've been thinking about while there is still time.
