Question about Logitech Harmony 880 LCD Remote Control

5 Answers

No sound on TV (or DVD player) with Harmony 880.

The 880 controls: A Samsung 40" LCD TV, A Philips DVD player, A Yamaha 7.1 receiver (configured I think as less than 7.1), an IPOD, a Wii. I use speakers that are in wall and a central speaker. Everything was working fine with the remote for a couple of weeks. Suddenly, I can't get sound on the TV or DVD. The sound was coming through the Receiver. The Tuner (Radio) still works, as does the Wii (with all it's annoying sounds).  This was originally programmed by a FireDog kid from Circuit City but they are no longer responding. I have a different computer than I did when it was installed but I have downloaded the software to it. I'm nervous about de-programming everything in order to fix something but if I have to, I have to. Thanks for your help.

    I tried plugging and unplugging everything. It seems very unlikely that it is the cables which are only a couple of months old. The sound does come through the Wii and the Radio. I was playing with settings on the Yamaha Receiver and I did get sound on the DVD player but couldn't repeat what I'd done and it was not through the Harmon.
    I forgot to mention -- though I don't think it's relevant -- that I have most things going through a Monster Power HTS 1600 box that seems to be working fine.
    Anyhow, bottom line still no sound. I keep thinking that I could fix by re-programming the Harmon but I'm nervous about un-doing the programming that the firedog guy did. Is there any way of tweaking the settings without undoing them all?

    Sorry for taking up so much of your time.
    If I plug the cable directly into the TV, by-passing everything including the Comcast cable box that I neglected to mention before, and switch the sound to TV speaker, the TV works with sound. The DVD player goes to the receiver and not directly to the TV. The TV is connected to the receiver with an HDMI cable.

Please double check connections first before jumping into any other conclusions. (Check for any loose, worn or torn connections.

Let's start with the basic first by unplugging those connections and then plugging them back in and rebooting your appliances.

This should save you the time and effort. But please be sure that you remeber all connections that you unplug so as not to mess it up. (Anyway, it usually is color coded! =))

Thanks and good luck!

It sounds like you may need to start over fresh to find out where the problem lies.i would unhook everything and start all over again and see if somewhere along the way you might find where the real problem is and what you can do about it.

I know you don't want to do this, but your best bet is to reprogram it.

Alternately, there are still several circuit city stores open. Go to their website and you may be able to schedule a tech.

Does the sound still work coming directly out of the tv without the tuner? If so then its either a connection from the tv to the tuner,av output (on the tuner)for the tv is wrong or ? I'm assuming that the flow is dvd to tv - tv to tuner. Is that correct?

I have 3 TV all the same, Panasonic, how do I set my remote to control all three with the one Logitech Harmony remote?


If they are exactly the same model and your component setup is the same as well (for example, you have exactly the same TVs and they each have the same DVD player as well, and the inputs-outputs have all been configured the same way), then the 'Watch TV' activity you set up will successfully control all of the setups in each room. But, let's say that you have the same TV in each room, but in one situation you have a connected DVD player and in another you have a home theatre and still the other is only the TV by itself with no additional devices. In this case, you would set up 3 different Activites and call them 'Watch TV 1", "Watch TV 2", etc. Each activity would be configured to use the same make & model television, but would also include the devices that were unique to each room's configuration. Hope this helps!

How to reprogram Harmony 520 to a replacement DVD/VCR?


You need the Harmony software on your computer that is available at www.logitech.com. You will then have to connect your remote to the computer to change your configuration using said software. You may need to start from scratch if you don't know the username and password for your Harmony account. The software will step you through setting up your remote it's fairly simple.

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.

Abilities of Universal Remotes


Yes!
When you define different activities (such as Watch TV, Watch DVD, etc.) the remote will ask which of the TV inputs your device is plugged into.  After programming, when you select the appropriate activity, the remote will automatically select the correct input.

Programming Harmony 880 Remote to Mute with CC on Sony Bravia KDL-40W4100


Do you use a Home Theater receiver along with your televison?  Are other components, such as a DVD player, VCR, Blu-ray player, etc. connected?
If so, it's possible that the Mute function on your remote is muting the sound from your receiver, and not the TV itself.
If that's the case, you'll need to look at the details of the "default" buttons for your activities, and see whether the Mute function is associated with your TV or your receiver.  If it's set for the receiver, you need to change it to be associated with the TV.

Logitech


You need to be more specific about your problem.  Have you already programmed your Harmony Remote on the internet?  Does it control all other functions (such as changing channels) on your TV?
Do you have any other components connected (such as a Home Theater Receiver) that might be a source of sound?
Please post more details, and I may be able to help.
