The special icons show up when you create an activity.  Unfortunately, none of the IR commands work.  If you use the 'Game Console with DVD/Sony/Playstation 2' device with an activity, you still get the special icons and most of the IR commands do work, but some of them are missing.

I was hoping Beerstalker would let us know how he got it to work.  Or anyone else that knows.

The Sony PlayStation 3 Game Console With DVD device used to use the same IR codes as the PlayStation 2 device.  I even was able to get Harmony to add some of the other buttons into the library at one time so everything worked great (Discreet power commadns for the PS3IR-Pro).  However, it appears that over the last few months someone at Logitech went through and totally screwed up the IR codes that are in the database for the PlayStation 3.  I'm not sure where the new IR codes came from, or what they are supposed to work with, but they don't seem to work anymore.

I think about the only way this can be done now is to just use the PlayStation 3 device so you can get the icons, then just use the PS3IR-1000 to teach all of the commands to your Harmony remote.

I tried getting Harmony to add the icons when they added the PS3IR-1000 device to their database but they said they couldn't do it, I'm not sure if Romeo or Mike have tried too or not.  I've been gone for a while now so I'm a bit behind.

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).

Yes this workaround has been used in the past.  It works but it is a bit cumbersome and confusing to some people.  That is why I originally just used the PlayStation 3 device, and manually taught the PowerOn and PowerOff commands to that device so it was the only device that had to be used.  This worked great for a while, but now like I said Logitech changed all the commands under the PlayStation 3 device so none of them work anymore.  I'm beginning to wonder if Logitech didn't put the commands for their own device into the database for PlayStation 3 so their users could get the color icons easily.  I don't have the Logitech adapter though so I can't test it.

I haven't checked to see if the PlayStation 2 device still has the old IR commands.  If it does then you could just use the PlayStation 2 device and learn the PowerOn and PowerOff commands and then only use the PlayStation 2 device in your activity.  I will try to test this out and see if it still works.  If it does work, it will only work if you are using code set A (the other code sets don't use the old PlayStation 2 IR codes).
