I had a similar problem setting up the 550 today. The problem was caused by the delay time needed by the TV before it was "ready" to receive new commands. I have a Vizio LCD. The problem was solved using the Harmony software for troubleshooting the TV device. I selected "does not change input on startup" or some such similar wording. It then allowed me to change the delay time. I extended the time to 7500ms and it would then change channels. I also changed the sequence of startup for devices to start the DVD and ReplayTV second (after the TV) to give the TV more time to boot up (or whatever it really is doing).

You can also add additional commands to insert a delay and then re-issue the input selection. However, I don't remember the sequence of steps that got me to that screen. Good luck.

Samsung PN58b530 tv and harmony 550. When setup have all devices set except when the tv turns on it stays on one hdmi setup then jumps to another that was not programmed.


Samsung TV's have Anynet automatic input switching. This severely conflicts with the Harmony Remote as they both do the same jobs; Switch inputs automatically. We would like for you to disable this feature on your Samsung TV using your original remote, so the Harmony Remote will work properly.

Disable Samsung Anynet+

1. Press your Tools Button.
2. Scroll down to Anynet and press your Select Button.
3. Once on the Anynet screen, please press your Left/Right Button(s) to select the Off Setting on the Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)
4. Scroll down to the Auto Turn Off and select No.

Once this is completed, please turn off your TV and all device and power them back on using the Harmony Remote.

Changing the settings within an Activity:

1. Login to your Harmony Remote Account.
2. Click on the Settings button next the Watch TV Activity.
3. Choose Review the settings for this Activity.
4. When the software asks What input does the AV Receiver need to be on, please choose the Input that you herd sound coming from when doing the testing.
5. Continue through the setup until you are brought back to the Home Screen.
6. Click on the Update remote button and follow the on screen steps.
7. Once the update is completed, please test the Watch TV Activity.

After programming my NEW Harmony One Logitech remote I can't get it to change channels on the Dish HDTV DVR along with a bunch of other problems.


To control a Dish Network PVR/Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to the default Remote Address (1).

To reset your Dish Network PVR/Satellite to the default Remote Address:

1. Press SYSTEM INFO on the receiver's front panel. The System Information screen displays on the nearby TV and shows the Remote Address.
2. Using the original Dish Network remote, press and hold SAT on your remote control for about three seconds, until all of the mode buttons light up, and then release SAT.
3. Using the NUMBER PAD, press the 1 button
4. Press POUND (#). If you entered the address correctly, SAT will flash three times.
5. Press RECORD. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the System Information screen is 1.
6. Press the SELECT button on the front panel to close the System Information screen.
7. Your Harmony remote should now control your Dish Network PVR/Satellite box

NOTE: Dish Network PVR/Satellite receivers sometimes have two tuners, allowing them to be used in more than one room on different TVs. Harmony remotes can only control a Dish Network receiver's main tuner while still in the same room with direct line of sight to the device.


What other issues are you having with the remote?

My harmony 550 always stops one input before the one I need on my TV. my tv has an input button that cycles thru all of the inputs. i've already checked that the inputs are listed properly on the setup...


On some TV's when you first press the input button it does not switch to the next input it just shows you the current input. It is the 2nd press that offten takes you to the next input in the list. This can cause problems with the Harmony. If your TV works this way then you will need to call Logitech and let them know about this issue. They can add the additional hit for you and then you can update your remote. If you are only using 2 inputs then A work around you can try is to tell the Harmony that there are more inputs, effectivly setting up Ghost inputs. You would put one ghost input after each input that you use. If there are 3 or more inputs then this trick will not work. The last work around is to remove unused inputs on your TV. Most TV will allow you to remove unused inputs. Then you can add one ghost input after each actual input: For example:
TV input1
Ghost1
DVD input2
Ghost2
VCR input 3
Ghost3

If I am missing some information just let me know.
I will do my best to help
Good Luck

Harmony 880 does not change input with Onkyo HT-R520 amplifier


You will either have to use your Onkyo remote to teach the Harmony those functions or try one of the similar model receivers in the Harmony software. I had to chose a similar DVD player in the list in order to get my Harmony to play nice with my DVD player.

Intermittently Working Correctly with DirecTv


Update your Harmony remote control software on your PC to the latest. Go into the TV device settings. The software should recognize if there is an update to your TV's IR commands. Try the same things with the DVR.

It's also possible the TV and/or DVR are locking up due to IR commands that are being sent too quickly. The remote has a setting for the delay between commands sent to the same device as well as the delay between commands sent to different devices. Try adjusting these settings:
  1. In the Harmony remote software on your PC, click the "Devices" tab.
  2. For the "TV" device, click the "Settings" button.
  3. Click the dot next to "Adjust the delays" and click Next.
  4. Adjust the "Inter-key" and "Inter-device" delays to something higher and click Next.
  5. Follow the steps to save the changes.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for your DVR device as well.
