Thanks. I was hoping I could skip having to hit the enter button after pressing the channel number. The old boxes I had did would go to the channel without having to press the enter button. It's a minor annoyance I was hoping to get rid of.

Using a harmony one and a Panasonic 65VT60.

I have an issue. I thought maybe I could set a macro to turn on game mode when I switch on my game systems with my harmony remote. In theory I still can, the problem is, the VT60 always remembers where you were last in the menus. Thus if I am out of place in the menu from where the macro is first programmed the macro wont work right.

Three questions. One, can I turn off that "remember where I was in the menu" setting somewhere on the TV? I'd just like it to default to menu > picture > page 1 every time.

If I can't do that, its a there a dedicated button or combination I can use to switch to game mode?

Or do any of you other handy harmony users have another solution?

I really don't want to have to navigate the menus every time I turn on one of my game systems just to turn on game mode.

Quick question....I have been using Harmony One for a while now, I have replaced my Samsung TV with a newer model. Basic functions like power and input and volume are the same, however there are few new functions that are not in the setup for the old Samsung, the NEW remote is Bluetooth, and since the TV is in almost every activity I have setup, I don't want to delete or replace as that I think that would be a major undertaking.

Anyway to add the few controls I am looking for? I have been using the old software that resides on the PC, don't want to use the Web for the One.

Thanks!!

Can't you just download the new codes into the Ones pc app?
post #11135 of 11255
I need to get the codes into the DEVICE that is my old TV. If I just download the full set of codes for the NEW TV, it will be a NEW device that won't be in my activities.

You can either "learn" any new commands under your old device or create a new device and replace the old TV in your activities.

I recommend the latter as rerunning the activity setup wizard is not that bad; the process keeps a lot of your setup intact. Try it on a less used activity to see if it is acceptable to you or not...

I'd second Duck (the fifth).

Just create the new device and replace the old with the new.
post #11138 of 11255
I managed to shoe horn everything I was needing into there........I was afraid that since I had never "replaced" a device before that if I did, all of the tweaks I had made to power on/off status, inputs, learning keys, etc would have to be re-done.

Thanks for all the help.......

Confirmed today, our Sharp is toast. Just replaced it with a Samsung. Added the Samsung to my devices. Then I went through each activity that used the Sharp and replaced it with the Sammy. Took only about 20 minutes. Only thing is some fine tuning as we use the new set. Then deleted the Sharp. No problems.

I have a Logitech Harmony One - I've had it for about 4 years - and found it an excellent device. If i was to purcahse a new Logitech Harmony remote, which of the latest models would be the best "direct replacement" for the One?
post #11141 of 11255
The 700 is a step down, but probably the closest.

What about the Harmony Touch:

Do a search here, and check the thread on the Touch as well. It seems a few Harmony One users don't like the Touch due to the illogical placement of the touchscreen in the middle of the remote. Using hard buttons at the top of the remote results in accidentally interacting with the touchscreen. It's pretty, but poor functional design. That's an opinion, mind you. I recommend you go somewhere where you can put your hands on one and try it out. This is why many of us have purchased "spare" Harmony Ones (often refurbs).
post #11144 of 11255
While Logitech thinks the Touch replaces the One, they are very different, not a "direct" replacement IMO. There is no direct replacement for the One really.

One option is to keep your eye on meritline.com. They frequently run coupon sales on reconditioned Harmony Ones. I purchased one a few months ago for $109. Fast service, no problems.

I've purchased two Ones, two 650s and a 700 from Meritline.  The Ones and the 650s were definitely Logitech factory refurbs and were indistinguishable from new.  The 700 was packed differently and had some very minor signs of prior use, so I suspect that it was not Logitech-sourced.  All have functioned perfectly. 

 

Previously, I had also purchased refurbs from TigerDirect... an 880, two 610s, a 550 and four 520s.  All of those were also good-as-new Logitech refurbs.  The only units I ever purchased new were my first two Harmony remotes... my original 880 and original One... and I also purchased another One new as a Christmas present for my son.

Thanks to all four your comments.

I would like to jump in if I may. I have a Harmony One and an OPPO 103 remote. All the buttons I need on the Harmony One are good except I can't seem to program the "Return" button on the One to go backwards like the OPPO can. Does the return arrow just right of the mute button on the One mimic the return button on the OPPO, meaning can it go backwards till I get to the original OPPO menu screen? I cant seem to program this button under the devices tab. Direct IR will not get me there.

I have it working. I will look tomorrow to see how I programmed it.

Thanks pbarach- I have had this remote for several years but cant get this one button to work. If you can help me then I wouldn't need the OPPO remote anymore.
post #11151 of 11255
You may already have found out but the latest firmware saves to last output on the OPPO 103/105

OK, here's what works for me: When I got the 103, I found that telling the Harmony software (not the online version, but the downloaded version) that I had an Oppo 103 got me a very restricted list of commands. So, like most people who have an Oppo 103 or 105 and use the H1 remote, I eventually found that the Logitech software should be told that I have an Oppo 93 or 95. These units have pretty much the same remotes as the 103, and Logitech has them set up better in their database. If you haven't set up your H1 software this way, then I'd recommend that you add the Oppo 93 as a device, then go into each of your activities and replace the Oppo 103 with the Oppo 93. Then you can delete the Oppo 103 device from the H1 software.

Concerning that button next to the Mute on the H1, Logitech calls that "Prev" in its software. When you Customize Buttons for each of the activities in which you use the Oppo, customize the Prev button with the Oppo command "Return."

Thank you so much as it is now working, finally! phew!. I tried several times over many years but no luck. Following your advice, I now am very grateful. If you need a base unit with AC adapter and an extra battery, PM me your address and I will send. I could send you my first Harmony One remote but my wife stepped on it 4 days after buying it and kind of destroyed the interface but have kept it. Thanks

^^ Thanks for the offer, but I have all of the pieces of my H1, and the base unit is on a high shelf where nobody will step on it eek.gif

Getting around to some of the additional features of my now ancient Sony BDP-S370. Since I started using a media server and NAS device for watching my blurays I'm not using the Sony for disc playback much these days. Might as well use it for some of its other stuff.

Started listening to Pandora. With the ability to do multi-channel out and some of the great Pandora radio stations it is a nice feature.

I'm getting ready to make a Listen to Pandora activity. Can head down the macro path and that looks like that is my only option.

But before I do I wanted to check and see if anyone has a discrete command for Pandora?
post #11156 of 11255
Figured out a rather straight forward way to make this work. Can't save more than one Favorite though. Saved Pandora to Favorites. Then setup a sequence on power on that goes to Favorite, then selects Pandora from the list of Favorites. There's only one there but it still needs to be Selected. We only have one station that I want to listen to automatically and so I Select it as well.

If I had more than one radio station on Pandora that we listened to I'd leave the start up sequence on the Pandora page where it displays all its Favorites like presets. Then manually select which radio station I want.

Works great. Had to dial in some pauses but it works great. Album art, artist and song list all great on the TV.

Tried an official sequence but ran out of options and no way to put pauses in strategically.

Sorry if it has been asked before but with a thread with 11k posts, impossible to scan through the entire thing,

Why does Logitech insist of this Internet interface vs just using software locally (on one's PC)??
post #11158 of 11255
I think it most likely has to do with making sure the latest software is always used as well as updating the database of IR codes etc...that would be daunting to store locally on a PC.

The software on your PC is an internet interface, but more expensive and harder to maintain.
post #11160 of 11255
anyone have any ideas on setup for "watch tv" activity using a Mitsubishi 73" dlp which takes around 10 seconds to show the initial screen once the power button is pressed, also any way to get the mits to go to input1 once power is pressed rather than the last input that was used (kids usually leave it on hdmi1 for their ps4), would like it to go to input1 for my cable box when watch tv is started.
