. Now I am having a strange problem.
I added the device in MyHarmony and synced my remote. Then I set the device up, and it was "seen" by the PS4 in Settings > Devices > Bluetooth menu. I had a green light, indicating it is connected to the PS4, but I had zero control over the PS4 in the PDP device on the Harmony Elite. Even though all the buttons went from greyed out to full color once I activated the PDP. So I tried having the PS4 disconnect from this device, then I pressed the little button on the PDP for 5 seconds to send it into pairing mode. Still I have no control over the PS4 within the PDP activity on the remote. Not to turn it on with the virtual PS button or simple navigation with the hard directional buttons.
The odd thing is that despite the instructions, it doesn't seem necessary to put the PDP into pairing mode as the PS4 Pro just sees it when it is turned on and it connected automatically, without me having to manually connect it. Sp I thought maybe that was the problem, so again, I disconnected it using the OEM Sony PS4 remote, and forced the PDP into pairing mode by holding the button until I got the flashing red. But, once again, it paired automatically without me having to do anything on the remote. And still, no control over the PS4.
I also figured maybe it was a problem with my TV because I had Bravia Sync on so I was able to turn the PS4 on in the Input section of the Bravia's home screen. So I went into the TV's settings, turned off Bravia Sync, restarted the PS4 Pro, and then told the PS4 to disconnect from the PDP and reconnected it.
Any idea why this isn't working?
I haven't even gotten as far as adding the PDP to the PS4 Activity as I want to get it actually working first.
okay, so I decided to be proactive while trying to figure out what's wrong, and so even though my PDP does NOT work at all, I created the Playstation Activity exactly following the instructions in post #30
. So hopefully once I get this figured out, the Activity will be waiting to start working. I tried a Hail Mary by attempting to use the activity, but it still doesn't work on the PS4 at all. The Activity does turn on the TV, the receiver, and it toggles correctly to the right HDMI input on the TV and the right audio input on my receiver. So I guess its now just a matter of getting the PDP to actually work. What is interesting is that the PDP is absolutely paired with the PS4. I just verified that yet again.
