Power-On erratic with Harmony One
« on: September 09, 2008, 12:03:34 AM »
All,

I just got the PS3IR-PRO and the power-on seems to work erratically with my Harmony One. I'm using the Sony PS3 profile to get the good icons, and I followed the instructions elsewhere in this forum to add the special PowerOff commend using the Pronto codes, etc. The power-off function appears to be rock-solid in repeatability, but power up fails about once in maybe every 3 or 4 power-up cycles, though pressing Help on the remote always powers up the PS3. There's an adjustment in the Harmony software that lets you change the amount of time it takes for a device to accept a new command (in ms) I went all the way from 0ms to 3000ms and it seemed to make little difference. (BTW I'm running version 7.4.3 of the Harmony software and I suspect it's been dumbed down a bit.) The PS3 is on version 2.41 and I'll presume my PS3IR-PRO is on version 1.09 since I just got the device.

Any ideas?

Which delay are you increasing?  You should try increasing the Inter-Device delay, as it sounds like that will most likely take care of your problem. 

Also, make sure you are keeping your remote pointed at the system long enough for everything to get started correctly.  My parents have the habit of pointing the remote straight up in the air so they can read it before the activity has finished starting up.
For help setting up your Harmony remote feel free to send me a PM. 

Include your model of remote, inputs settings for your TV, AV Receiver, etc., and any other setup requests.  I will also need your Harmony Login name and password (I recommend changing your password temporarily to 12345).

Is it possible that you are manually turning on/off the PS3 or the PS3 power? It is important to use your remote so that it doesn't get out of sync.

I'm having exactly the same problem.  I'm using a Harmony One and have no problem with Power Off, but I can only turn the PS on by pressing help.  I'm pointing the remote directly and the PS is the 1st device to turn on for that activity.
