Create Watch Blu-ray/Watch DVD Macro
« on: December 20, 2008, 02:29:14 PM »
I have a PS3IR-PRO.  Let's say I have the PS3 with a DVD or Blu-ray movie already in it.  I would like to make a macro that launches the movie.  What commands would I use?

I'm not real clear on what you want to do here.  Are you already in a play PS3 activity so you are sitting at the XMB and you want a macro that will move around the XMB and select the Blu Ray movie button?  If so that would be very hard to do because the PS3 keeps track of your cursor location so you won't be starting from the same location all the time.  You would have to make a macro that moves the cursor all the way to the left, then move it right to the movie icon, then the cursor would have to move all the way up under the movie Icon, and then move down to the Blu Ray icon and hit the X button.  It could be done, but it would be a very long macro.

If you are just asking how to set up your  PS3 activity you will want to set up a "Play A DVD" activity and tell it you use your PlayStation 3 to play a DVD.
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).

I'm looking for watch you described in the first paragraph.  Doesn't the PS3 launch a BD/DVD disc when it is inserted?  Has anyone had any luck with issuing "Eject, Eject" as a macro to spit the disc out and suck it back in, possibly launching it?
