This is for a friend. He has a new system:
- Epson 5030UB Projector
- Sony STR-DN1080 AVR
- Roku Ultra
- Sony X800M2 Blu-ray Player
I gave him my Harmony Hub and Remote that I previously used successfully to control a much more complex system (I'm now using Control4, and absolutely love it!).
I set up 2 simple activities for him:
- Watch a Movie
- Watch Roku
The appropriate devices are selected for power on, with no change in Projector Input, and the appropriate Input selected on the Sony AVR. It couldn't be much simpler than this. Everything powers on (and off) as programmed, but there is a problem with getting the right Input selected.
For the 'Watch a Movie' Activity, it always switches to the Roku input, even though the Harmony is programmed to change it to the Bluray Input. I put in a delay (10 seconds, then 30 seconds, then 45 seconds) before the Input Switch command in the Harmony Activity, but it will not switch over.
If I go to the Device tab in the Harmony App, and tap the Bluray input, it switches without problem.
If I've run the Roku Activity, and then without turning the system off, run the Watch a Movie activity, it does switch the Input correctly. But it never switches to the Bluray input with this Activity if it's activated when the system is off.
I have CEC turned Off in the Sony AVR, and on the Blu-ray player. I don't believe there is a way to turn this off on the Roku, or at least not completely.
I have read in this thread and elsewhere, of similar issues, so wanting to avoid spending hours reading through hundreds of posts, I was hoping somebody could identify the fixes, work-arounds, etc.
