Hi fellas - need a bit of help please.
I received a Harmony Elite for Christmas. I still have not got it working reliably. I suspect my cabinet is the issue, I have a Salamander Designs Synergy 345:
Bottom right is my Yammy A3060 AVR, above that a CD player, at the top my Cisco DVR (cable box), next to the AVR is a Monster Power conditioner/surge suppressor, above that a Samsung BR player, Center speaker in the opening and TV on top.
Placement of the Hub and blasters is the problem. One blaster on top close to the TV, the Hub and other blaster inside the cabinet. I cannot get all devices to power on/off test successfully. No matter where I place the hub/blaster inside the cabinet. My cabinet doors and sides are perforated steel - I think this has something to do with the issue. Signals can pen the steel - I have had the cabinet for 7 years, used OEM remotes and even an old Harmony One and all talk thru the steel. I suspect the IR blaster/hub emit the signal, these escape thru the steel and that is the end. No "bouncing around" as the Logitech doc says.
The only repeatable success I have had is to place a blaster on the floor, 2 to 3 feet in front of the cabinet. Doors closed all works. I have mostly repeatable success leaving the cabinet doors open. Neither of these are viable solutions.
I have opened an incident with Logitech - so far that has been less than stellar.
Anyone had success with a perf steel cabinet? Suggestions? Thanks.
