Installation Instructions for Harmony Remotes
« on: June 17, 2008, 06:57:08 PM »
1) Add a new "Game Console with DVD" device.
2) Select Schmartz as the manufacturer
3) Select PS3IR-PRO as the device

Until the Harmony database gets fixed you may need to chnage one or more of the following settings in the Harmony setup:

1) Change the power settings so that a separate command sequence is used for ON and OFF.
2) Map OFF to PS2 Discrete OFF (command 46). You may have to get Logitech to add it for you.
3) Map ON to the PS key or any arrow key (actually any key will turn on the PS3 but it is best to use a benign action)
4) Turn off the automatic  "STOP" command at power off.
5) Map the OK and enter buttons to the "X" command.

For devices shipped before 6/15/2008, download the latest firmware to get the built-in OFF macro feature.

This doesn't apply to the non-pro earlier adapter does it?

I'm having a hard time with a Harmony 880 and the older non-pro IR adapter, mainly getting the x to OK to map correctly.  It should be simple but when I try to update the remote, it doesn't show up on the remote itself.  Strange.

Make sure to map the X command to the OK button in both the device and the activity mode.  Most people forget to do one or the other and it causes confusion.
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).
