...searching this thread as we speak, by the way.

EDIT: I did find THIS: http://www.amazon.com/X10-Powermid-PM5900-Control-Extender/product-reviews/B00023KG40/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

Anyone have any luck with it? I am on ground level going up to a second floor, about 40 feet.

thanks

Do yourself a favor and stay away from this X10 extender. I bought one and it worked - once. The dealer was responsive and shipped another out and paid for return postage.

The second set was DOA right out of the box. I ate the $40 and chaulked it up to experience.

Logitech sent us a remote replacement because we couldn't get the battery out.
When I Open the app now it starts to open then the window immediately goes blank and can't see my old remotes settings at all.
Has anyone had this problem and found a solution?
Thx

Can someone tell me what battery I should look for in the "One". I just got a refurbished "One" to keep on hand just in case and the battery that came with it is just a plain white one. It seems to me I read that the defective batteries had a blue stripe. Is that correct?
Thanks

IIRC, the blue label is the one that swells. Search prior posts to be sure. Here is a link to Amazon for the Logitech White Label battery for the One. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Li-ion-Battery-Harmony-VERSION/dp/B003TX2N14/ref=pd_cp_e_0

Does anybody use a Yamaha Aventage series AVR with their One? I am having a new problem and have a question.

Problem is when I play music files from my NAS. The Play, Pause, Skip FWD, Skip BK and Stop buttons all worked. Now they do not respond. I tried reprogramming the remote, no luck.

My question is, on A Yamaha Aventage series AVR: what command should I be using to go between HD radio stations on the same frequency (ie:HD-1, HD-2, HD-3)?

Experimenting, I have solved all my issues. I realized my problems started with a firmware upgrade to the AVR. It was changes in how the AVR responded. I just love this remote and would not trade it for any other.

+1 it is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

+3... Thousand. I hope mine lasts a long time because I don't like the new Harmony Touch. Hopefully Logitech will have something better out when mine goes. I've tried touchscreens on my phone and tablet and prefer hard buttons for constantly used functions like FF, rewind, etc.

That's what I love about my One. Hard buttons. I can maneuver the remote without taking my eyes off of the screen, and just touching the button will not activate that command. When choosing an activity, it is easy enough to hit the wrong one because your finger was slightly in the wrong place.

Update: I contacted Logitech -they said to download newer Java for OSX and it solved my problem. Great

My Mac mini is stuck on this screen when trying to load the harmony software. Does anyone have a suggestion about installing the software on a Mac? It's fine on my PC, but I'd like to use the Mac.

I contacted Logitech this morning and to my surprise they responded in the afternoon with an answer to my problem. Apparently Java was updated and since then the software could not load. Logitech sent links to updates that solved my problem. +1 for Logitech. I'm happy again smile.gif

Right. See my Post above 10/213. Helped us both.

Hello all

I have a question regarding powering up zone 2.

I own a Onkyo tx-nr3009 that does not have a 12v trigger on zone 1. So I have my external amps hooked up to the zone 2 12v trigger. How would I program my ONE remote to power on zone 2 when I also power on the main?

I'm sure it's here on this thread somewhere and I will do a search, but in the mean time if anyone can chime in and help a guy out?

I have an Onkyo 707 and added an amp recently and found this solution somewhere on this forum. To the best of my recollection a/f:

1. add the 'Standby' and 'Zone 2' commands to your Onkyo device.

2. in each activity after all devices are on, send a 'Zone 2' command. (sends signal to 12v trigger and turns on amp)

3. when leaving an activity or turning all off, send a 'Standby' command. (sends signal to 12v trigger and turns off amp)

Hey guys...

Can someone point me in the direction of a handy updated guide on setting up the Harmony remote to work with WMC? I am really interested in getting rid of my crap FIOS box and just putting a cable card in my system.

I already have the IR receiver.

Id also like to know if there was a way to get the remote to send a specific command. Looking to send CTRL+SHIFT+I to help reset my display driver (since im using a beta driver that doesnt properly handle HDMI detection)

Thank you!

Ill keep scouring these threads...

There is a special MCE setup already stored in the DB, I think its called MCE Extended or Special Edition or something like that. It has loads of extra Windows keyboard shortcuts which can be mapped.
post #10973 of 11255
This is the profile Shevek is talking about. But it won't do Ctrl+Shift+I. You'll have to find another way. Plus this profile only works with "official" Microsoft MCE (RC6) dongles, no cheap knock-offs or Ortek/Adesso/Sanoxy/Sama.

Garnuts solution will work... but a better solution would be to add the Onkyo's Zone 2 as a separate device, then add that device to each activity that requires it.  You can even rename it to match the external amp that the Z2 trigger is actually controlling. 

 

The advantage of adding it as a unique device rather than just adding commands to the startup and shutdown lists is that the remote's state tracking will be able to track the Zone 2 device, making it more reliable and allow it to be included in the Help button functionality.

 

To add the Onkyo's Zone 2 as a separate device, typically you would add the same model a second time but select "Zone 2" or "Room 2" in the dialog that should follow.

post #10976 of 11255
Maybe someone can dump this down for me? i cant find where to activate zone 2 any where.
post #10977 of 11255
You need to add it as a new device, i.e., AVR, Onkyo, and TX-NR3009 (Zone 2).
post #10978 of 11255
I'll take a look again. I added my 3009 as a second device just couldn't find where to make it power in zone 2. Thanks for trying to help.

When you add the device, upon entering the the model number, be sure to type zone 2 also. You'll get the dialog for the existing setups that have the Zone 2 codes. I wish I had known about this. I manually entered all of my Zone 2 codes for each of my two Onkyos.
post #10980 of 11255

Apparently, unlike most of the other Onkyo AVRs I have checked, the 3009 library at Logitech is not set up for a Zone 2 device and you do not get the extra zone/room selection dialog box when you add it. 

 

Easy alternatives:
 

• Type "TX-NR3009 Zone 2" as your device and it will ask you if you meant TX-NR3007 (Zone 2), TX-NR3008 (Zone 2) or TX-NR1009 (Zone 2)... selecting any of those should work:

 

   

 

• Type one of those same three alternate models directly as your model number, and you will see the dialog box that I was originally referring to.

 

  

 

Just select "Room 2" and move on.

 

Either of the above routes will get you to the exact same place.
