So.....it is an IR receiver specifically designed for Harmony? Has anyone looked at the codes yet? I assume it would work with other programmable IR remotes unless they are doing something unique.

OK so it works perfectly. It allows my Harmony Elite to turn on the PS4 and it controls the PS4 other functions too. When I start my PS4 activity it turns on the PS4, just remember to follow the instructions that comes with it and if you already have an activity setup to use the PS4, in the Harmony software just click "Change Your Setting" for the activity and select PDP to control the PS4 instead of PS4. I also added the PDP "PS" command to the activity under "Customize This Activity" to make sure it turns on the PS4.

Yes it is an IR specifically for Harmony remotes. Take a look at the pic of the back of the box in my previous post. It list the Harmony remotes it has IR for.

Gotcha covered. They used good old NEC1, device 120, subdevice 120. Here are the OBCs. Use IR Scrutinizer to convert to pronto hex.

I don't have this IR receiver or a PS4 to test, but it should work fine since all these came from the Logitech database. Obviously these would work on any universal that takes pronto hex or JP1 codes as well as any Harmony, including unsupported ones, if you learn them from a supported model or email the codes to support.

Well I got it working in my various activities, it definitely turns on the device and navigates through the menus. Been waiting ages for this, as a former IR4PS3 user, who isn't ready to move to a hub remote.

It connects via registering the device as bluetooth on the ps4, in case anyone is curious

I am now trying to figure out how to create a macro for the turning off option:


  • Im in the PDP PS4 IR, ive selected that I want the device to turn off.
  • Ive adjusted the power settings to "I want to turn off this device when its not in use"
  • Picked "a button on the remote for On, and a different button for Off"
  • "I dont have the original remote, but i know the command" - selected PS command
  • Then "I dont have the original remote, but i know the commands" for the Off option, selected more than one command.
  • I have selected PS, Down, Down, X, X.

The issue is, I dont know how to program a hold of "PS" the PS/Power button. Pressing it once just quick switches the windows. I need to figure out how to hold it, so it enters the power menu.

Another option if you are on the main dashboard is "up" and then ten right arrows, x, x, but that is a lot of commands to send and would really slow down the power off process for those that don't want to stay line of sight for that whole time.

Ideas?

Learn a long duration PS command from another Harmony. If you can?t, I can probably post one. Just let me know the min duration.

I only have my harmony one, and I am not aware of another owner of one around me.

If you post one, where does it go? How do I access it? Ive learned commands before manually as we are talking, but never used anything else but those in the device database.

2 seconds should do its not long at all. I'm not home at the moment, but I'm pretty sure it's actually just a count of "one one thousand" at most.

It'll take some time for me to alter the protocol and get it converted to pronto hex. But when I do, you'll send the code I post to [email protected] and ask them to add the new command (PS-long) to your account. Then you'll see it in your device next time you sync.

Here's one about 2 sec long. Would be nice if someone with a URC reading this thread could test it first. Otherwise, send it to Logitech and see how it works.

Code:
PS-long

I have ordered one, but the current ps4 bluetooth implementation does have a power down feature using button presses . In my case with the elite I dont need to keep it pointed, but is that power down function available for this device as well?

All the functions on Harmony are listed in post 5, nothing power related, only the PS command. You'd have to make a macro for power down if Harmony doesn't make one for you when you make your activity. I saw no such thing on my Harmony 650.

When you currently pair the remote through bluetooth without this device at least on my elite, they include a power button in the device itself where it does key combinations to power it off.

I dont know if that exists with this adapter though. I am guessing harmony themselves added the key combinations.

I double checked, and there is no power button/command/function/sequence/macro of any kind in the PDP device like Harmony has done for some other PS interface devices, at least on my 650.

I guess the only way right now is the way smiggy is trying to do it, with his own macro.

The original PS4 Harmony Elite power down/off is still there in the "Customize this Activity" under the "Activity Shutdown Commands". With the PDP IR PS4 there is also a shutdown/off command that gets automatically added to the "Activity Shutdown Commands" for the PDP IR PS4.

I've added the PS command to turn on my PS4 and the Harmony Elite PS4 shutdown and the PDP shutdown are both there and my PS4 turns on when I start my activity and shuts off when I hit the remotes off button(I have my PS4 set to stay on while changing activities so it doesn't turn off with activity changes).

Here's a pic of the shutdown commands that were automatically added by Harmony and the PDP:

Should I be able to access those above commands with my One? Or are those hub only?

Logi emailed me back already and said they added the PS-long command. Unfortunately, they set it for 5 seconds, way excessive. And my mobo took a dump last night so I can't get on my pc to update it and try it.

If it's too long I'll reply back to them and request it be 2-3 seconds.

Gotcha covered. They used good old NEC1, device 120, subdevice 120. Here are the OBCs. Use IR Scrutinizer to convert to pronto hex.

I don't have this IR receiver or a PS4 to test, but it should work fine since all these came from the Logitech database.
Thanks!

Everything I tested worked except popup. Square does open the popup menu though.

How are you guys creating macros for power off? Even with a long PS button press you return to your prior place in the menus not a predetermined location.

My thought was that often when I use it for media I'm rarely changing my location in that menu. But you do have a point. The long method may be the only reliable way for those of us that don't have a power off command.

Can always program ps, up, right 10 times, then x, x.

So if other devices have a power down command is there no way to get it added to the pdp?

Cool. I double-checked Popup, and it's the correct code. Maybe it only works in certain contexts or Logitech got it wrong.

Were you able to try the PS-long code that I posted? I'm curious if it acts the same as holding down the PS button. If it's too long, I can cut it back.

I tried to capture a Power Off sequence from my Harmony, but it doesn't send any commands at all to the PDP. Is there another PS4 IR device I could add and try?

Otherwise, looks like you're stuck with schimmgy's long macro.
