Question about Logitech Harmony 890 LCD Remote Control
I have a logitech 890. The remote only turns the tv on and off but nothing else.
What are the other devices that you have
are you trying this in device mode or are you trying this within activities
have you checked the power settings for the other devices that you have like leave the device on all the time
have you checked if the other devices you have can be controlled in device mode

To check to see if your device is controlled by a RF (radio frequency) or IR (infrared) remote:
Power the device on manually
Cover the front of the original remote that came with the device with your hand
Press any button on the remote that you know the device would respond to normally
If the device responds even when your hand is covering the front of the remote, the remote is RF and the device cannot be controlled by the Harmony remote
Another test that can be performed is using digital camera:
Using any digital camera, even one on a cell phone, camcorder or webcam, look through the screen of the camera at the front of the remote
Press a few buttons on the original remote
If you see flashes of light as illustrated, the remote is IR and the Harmony can control it. If the remote does not flash, this original remote is an RF remote and the device cannot be controlled by the Harmony remote
For comparison, try the same steps with a remote control that you know is working correctly, such as the original remote for the TV, or DVD player. You should see the IR emitters flashing when performing this test.

this remote has a help button to resolve setup issues. you should see a message on the screen ask ing if you need help. If not this function can be activated using the setup software. Try using the remote to watch TV. Then press the help button(be sure to have the remote pointed at the TV). The remote will attempt to fix itself. the screen will then ask if that fixed the problem-choose yes or no. Continue to follow the prompts until everything is the way you want it.
This should get everything working for you. I assume you did connect the remote to your computer and went through the setup software.
I use this remote and I love it. Just be sure when using it to give time for it to send commands to all the devices.
