The number 1 thing if you have any power issues, unplug power to the RF extender, wait 5 secs, then plug back in. Make sure that the eyeballs are still the right place on the components as well.

Hope this helps,

Infrared is not working


Is the RF extender working, or is it just the IR out the front of the remote?
Try a reboot by pulling the battery and power cycling the extender.

Will not respond to any commands, it is fully charged. I have had this unit for three years, is it possible the infared has gone out?


Are you using the RF extender? The IR almost never dies on them but the RF extenders have some problems. Pull the battery and let it reboot, then power cycle the extender.

Logitech Harmony remote having trouble changing the channel


Harmony remotes use IR commands, so you will always have to have line of sight for it to work.

However, if you are using the RF extender, ensure that the device you are using to change channels is assigned to the extender, and that the extender is properly paired.

Harmony 900 to control Bose Lifestyle problem.


Press the system button on the Lifestyle remote control. Move right to see a preview of the remote control. Press the down button to move into the submenus. Go down to IR Control. Select "on" System receives IR commands from another remote that has been taught to operate this system. Press exit and take a breath and try your Harmony remote. It should work. I had the same problem and this fixed it after hours of screwing around. Good Luck

Harmony One remote won't input channels very well


Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.

To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote:
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual


Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.

The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal:
1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task
2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device.
3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object.
4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated.
5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote.
6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.

You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.

What is a ?????


The RF extender is a add-on device that communicates with the Harmony 1000 remote. You would actually hook up IR eyeballs to your equipment and then plug them into the RF extender. This allows you to have your equipment in a cabinet or closet and have the door shut. The Harmony 1000 sends RF signals to the RF extender and the RF extender sends that signal to the components. This way you don't have to point at the components to control their operation.

Hope this helps, if it did please indicate with vote.

Harmony 1000 in safe mode?


The harmony remotes have a built in safe mode, similar to a Windows XP computer. Usually you enter the safe mode on the harmony remotes by taking the battery out, then pressing the power off button and holding while putting the battery in. If you continue to press the power off button, the remote will display safe mode on the screen.

If you are not doing the above procedure and you are still getting the safe mode on the display of the remote, I would try to update the firmware on the remote. And if you have an RF Extender, update the firmware on it at the same time.

Hope this helps,

Logitech harmony remote 1000 not operating CBus lighting


Is there an IR receiver (or if using the RF extender, IR eyeballs connected to device and the RF extender) that you are pointing at to control the CBus lighting? If not, there is no way to control it. The Harmony 1000 will only communicate with the RF extender through Zwave, so you can't communicate with other Zwave devices, like you can with the Harmony 890 for instance.

Hope this helps,

Jensen - Wireless Infrared Remote Control Extender - JDSC-IR100A


I have also purchased one of these over ebay without a manual. I have gotten it to work as an extender from my basement satellite receiver to the upstairs living room theater TV. I use a channel converter to remote the RF audio and video and this Jensen IR remote to allow control from the living room.

There should be five items in this set. Two dome shaped items, two power supplies and a hockey puck looking IR emitter.

First locate the dome that says transmitter on it. This you want to put at the remote location. This is the dome that you point your remote control at to do your bidding. Make sure its little antenna is extended and the power supply is plugged in. You should be looking at the dome with the antenna tail behind it. The range that you can operate this seems to be somewhat limited. More on this later.

Second, locate the receiver dome. It says receiver on it and has two plug jacks, one for the power supply and one for the IR emitter. Don't worry about that yet, you don't need to plug it in. Raise its antenna, connect its power and set this in front of the devise that is being controlled remotely. You do not need the hockey puck for this to relay your IR beam. Make sure it faces the device being controlled. The antenna tail should face away from the device being controlled.

You should now be able to relay the IR signal. Start by being close to the transmitter. Try a simple on off to verify you have a connection. You can then work at moving away a bit to get an idea on the range capability. I have read several reviews that say this range is very limited, maybe only 5 feet ! I am not sure if this is true in all cases, but be aware of it. Secondly experiment with the receiver placement to get reliable relay to controlled device.

The hockey puck can be used to put the signal in a closed in spot like behind a door in a cabinet etc. In this case, plug it into the receiver and stick it over the IR led on the item being controlled. By the way, I have not gotten this to work on the unit I have. Not sure why. I am also clueless on the visible red LED in the receiver. It seems to glow when I pass my hand around the antenna and does flash when a signal is relayed. It would be nice to know what this is intended to do.

I hope this helps.

If anyone has the manual, I would be interested as well.
