Hi, I've read the other threads about this, but I'm still having trouble.  I went through the included instructions and set up the Harmony software using the Schmartz and PS3IR-PRO, and that worked out ok.  However, I'm stuck when registering the remote as the BD Remote on the PS3.  Once the screen says to "press x and start simultaneously," I then plug in the PS3IR-PRO to my Uverse cable box (tried my Samsung tv, too) and then pointed the remote at the infared receiver and held 0 for about 25 seconds.  I've tried this multiple times, but it never pairs up and just stays on that screen.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Did you go into the Harmony software and make sure the 0 button is mapped to the 0 command in both the activity and device mode?  I believe it is automatically mapped in the activity, but you have to map it manually in the device mode.  This is the cause 99% of the time with this problem.
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).

Looks like I got it working now. I checked the Devices tab like you had told me, but the 0 button was mapped fine, so I was still baffled.  So I did the same thing I was doing yesterday, and for whatever reason it works now, so that's weird.  Thanks for the help, though.  Appreciate it.

Glad you got it working. FYI, as long as you press the zero within 10 seconds of plugging in the PRO, it works fine. No need to hold it down.
