Hi guys. I can't find a place where my question's already been addressed, so I'm going to throw it out there. If I missed the answer, please feel free to direct me to the correct page for it.
I've had a Sony HT-CT150 sound bar for a long time. Works perfectly. I'd had one LGTV, and we recently upgraded to a new 65uf8500. I'm loving the tv, but the interface has one quirk that's making me crazy, and I'm hoping I can get my Harmony 650 to fix it.
Audio output switching isn't available on any of the main buttons on the tv remote. To get to those settings, I need to hit a button on the tv remote, open a menu of sorts, THEN open the Advanced option from there, switch to the audio setting (lots of other setting options in that menu, like picture), THEN get to the Audio output setting and choose what I want. So, the setting is, like, 3 levels in.
I can't find a way to find that command, even using macros, since it's so deeply in there - but I'd really like to switch from my soundbar to my headphones (they're RF from a 3.5" input - no bluetooth available - don't get me started!.... UGH!), then back to the soundbar when I'm done.
Setting an action won't do it, because even to set back to listening through the soundbar, although it sets the soundbar correctly - the tv doesn't know to talk to it unless I reset it's internal output setting. None of this seems automatic - it's a function of the damned thing wanting me to physically plug in the 3.5" cable in the back of the tv EACH time I use it, and I simply won't do that.
So.... anyone know how I can get the Harmony to know what functions may be deep inside the tv, when it's not a main button on the remote? Thanks!
