Harmony 1 - does not power down ps3 on activity change
« on: December 13, 2008, 01:29:38 PM »
I have a new ps3irpro with the Schmartz Game Console profile & Harmony1.

Powerdown/up works well when starting from cold.

Toggling between activities i.e. Watch DVD to Watch TV does not powerdown ps3.

The game console is not listed in any of the other activities.

Any suggestions or is this correct behaviour?

I have two guesses, the first would be that you have your activity set up to leave unused devices turned on.  My second guess would be that you have the remote set up to send the stop command when you leave the watch a blu ray activity.  Both of these options should be under the more options tab or something like that for your watch a blu ray activity.

If you want you can send me a private message with your Harmony login info and I can log in and check you settings.  I have done this for many people here.  If you are worried about me having your password you can set it to something temporary like 12345 and then set it back after I check your settings.
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).

Thanks for the quick reply...

Your advice on the second point is good, not much would work without un setting the stop command on the Harmony.

What I found was a powerdown of all components cured the problem. It seems the remote was confused by my manual power on of some components.

All is good & I'm now in full control of my PS3.
