It's not confusing, one use IR via led transmission (usual way) that's the IR sensor, while the other use data via wire (that's typically how control system will do)
If harmony hub use IR, then yes you can connect directly to IR sensor input.
If it use data, then you connect to IR receiver.
The purpose of having 2 different IR input (+1 direct IR windows when device is in line of sight) is especially made to make it compatible with anything in existence today.

1. Regarding 3D, how will the ambient lighting feature react on TAB / SBS content?
2. Can we shorten / cut the strips you include? Ie. remove the last segment to go from 154cm to 146cm? (Even if it would require soldering or other measures)
1. Not supported at the moment, but there will be firmware update for that soon after release, need some design work and add some code for 3D>2D conversion internally before it goes to the light processing. frame packed 3D should be ok, sbs and top/bottom need special dev work to be added.
2. No you cannot shorten the led strip, they are made so anyone can install his kit in a minute, no cut, no solder. If your display is 146cm width, use LED STRIP with 7cm GAP (132x76) and 10cm Corner (refer to above posted PDF), that means: |<5cm>| <132cm of led >|<5cm>|
It is an urban digital legend to believe that there should be a led at each corner, in fact, there is more intensity than anywhere else at each corner if there is led to each corner, while ledkit should be an extension of the current central picture of your TV and not something that bring more intensity in each corner than anywhere else.
If you refer to Philips ambient light and those guys have spend lot of time and effort in research, they know what they are doing in this field, they DO NOT HAVE any led in the corner. (see attached pic or check any of their ambient light tv backside)
