Depending on the type of tv you may need to count the TV tuner as an input. My bro-in-law had the same problem. The TV has 5 inputs (S-video, HDMI, etc) but when you set up the remote you need to tell the remote you have 6 inputs, one for the TV tuner.

I hope that helps.

Dish remote 2 changes channels on both tvs and dish remote 1 changes channels on both tvs


Is the receiver in dual mode? Go to the receiver, open the door, and hit the mode key. If both TVs are still showing the same thing, then the issue is not the mode.

Go to TV 2 (the one without the receiver) and make sure the TV is tuned to channel 60 or 73. If it is still showing the same thing, go to TV1 (the one with the receiver) and hit Menu, system setup, Installation, modulation (menu 6-1-5). make sure the modulation for tv2 matches which channel you put your tv2 on.

Still showing the same thing? check the back of the receiver, the RCA cables (red/white/yellow) are plugged into the TV1 ports not the TV2 ports.

Showing different things but the remote still changes channels on both tvs? Go to TV1, hit menu twice, near the bottom there are two boxes each with a number. This is the address for each remote (tv1 and tv2). On the TV2 remote hold sat until it stays lit, choose a number different than on the screen, touch pound (#), the sat light blinks three times, hit record, the number on the screen should change to match the one you typed in.

Still being silly? Call a priest, you have a poltergeist!

Lost my manual, need to reprogram my Logitech hand control for replacement TIVO HDVR


Hi. Programming of the Harmony remote is done in the software, which you can download at http://logitech.com/myharmony.

You'll have to add the TiVo deivce by clicking 'Add Device', then set up an Activity for it. In the 'Activities' tab, click 'Add Activity', and select 'Watch TV (TiVo)'.

Hope that helps.

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.

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.

Logitech Harmony 880 LCD / TV screen ''check signal cable''


This is a configuration problem. My guess is that when you set up the "Watch TV" Activity, the input source was not properly selected. Remember, you should almost never need to control devices separately,(as you would with a typical remote). In fact, the only time you need to specifically control a device would be a situation where you need to access a little-used function that was not programmed as part of an 'activity'. Sometimes, you may need to control a device to tweak an activity that did not start correctly, but apart from these situations, you will almost always be concerned with starting "Activities". This is very different from your typical universal remote! Instead of operating 'devices' like your TV, cable box or DVD, you configure and select "Activities" that automatically control the devices that are used during that activity. So, go back into the Logitech software and make sure that your Watch TV activity is selecting the appropriate input. If everything is setup correctly, and you still are unable to go to the correct input, you may need to adjust some of your delay settings, especially the Power-on Delay. Power on delay is the amount of time it takes for the device to turn on and start accepting IR commands. On most electronics when you first turn them on if you hit other buttons too quickly the device will not respond to them. This delay helps to keep that from happening. Hope this helps!
