In any case there's no reason to be fighting this. Just make your own macro with the required steps to get to the HDMI input, I think the enter command might be needed at the end, but its easy enough to do.
As far as I can tell I am getting to the HDMI In setting in a way that looks the same as doing it with the OPPO remote.
I'll be 85 this coming Tuesday so what used to be easy may no longer be easy.
Just to be clear, my understanding is that "HDMI/MHL In-Front" is a macro that shows up as an input option if the OPPO 103 device data is used.
The OPPO using it's remote acts like this:
Power On OPPO screen displays:
Hello (for about 4.5 seconds)
OPPO (for about 2 seconds)
Home Menu (which means it's ready for commands)
Using the OPPO input button:
Blu-ray player (If no other input button press the player returns to Home Menu)
HDMI IN (If the second press is within a second or two of the first press)
(HDMI IN stays as the selected input if there are no additional input button presses)
Arc on HDMI Out (will return to Home Menu if no other input button press)
Press Four just starts all over again.
Using the Xfinity activity I get the following if everything starts clean.
The activity finishes with the TV on, the HDMI switch pointing to the correct selection for the Xfinity box.
The OPPO has acted like a power on, 8 second delay, and two Input buttons pressed with HDMI IN selected.
The TV screen shows the OPPO's Home Menu and the OPPO screen still shows HDMI IN.
While watching the OPPO screen, if I press Help on the Harmony the OPPO screen does not change
but remains with HDMI IN showing. The image shown on the TV is now from the Xfinity box instead of the Home Menu from the OPPO.
There are no clues about what commands the Harmony is using to fix the problem.
I'm happy to learn how to do a macro, but I'm not sure what to create given what I see as the activity script plays is apparently what I want to happen. If I do the activity manually,trotting back and fourth with remotes in hand, every component behaves exactly as expected and no "Help" commend is needed. I believe this to be true of the Roku 3 and OPPO 93 activities too.
