Harmony 890 Remote - kids watched a movie last night and now the screen is zoomed and we don't know how to get back to regular view. They swear they only used that remote.

On the remote, press "Devices" and then select the TV. There should be a command on the LCD screen that is called somethine like Zoom, TVZoom, or a ratio such as 5:10 (the numbers could be anything). If not, test all of the commands. One of them will fix it.

My Harmony 890 remote has a difficult time inputing numbers

Hi. This problem is caused because the 'repeat' setting on the device that you use to change channels (TV or cable box) is too high.

1. In the software, click 'Troubleshoot' next to the icon for the device that you change channels on.
2. Select '<device> responds to some commands either too many times or only occasionally' and click NEXT.
3. Decrease the setting by one (the default is usually 3).
4. Update your remote and test it.

My Harmony 890 turns everything on and off, but when I am in PVR it just suddenly stopped letting me use any of the buttons (ie, menu, guide, channel, volumn). what do I do

I would hook the harmony back up to your computer and the update the remote. If that does not fix the problem then I would down load the firmware and then update your remote. If you still have problems I would check your check your buttons in the program. You can do this by logging onto your Harmony account, select the Activities tab and press on the “customize buttons” under the activity you are trying to fix. Scroll down to the menu exit info buttons and see if there assigned to the correct device and correct command. If none of this works I would see if the menu button works in another activity like Watch TV or Watch DVD.. If the menu button does not work in another activity then the remote may be broke. If it does work then I would try the original remote with your DVR and see if that works. If that works then I would manually teach the harmony remote. Harmony calls this “Learn command” It’s a button in the lower right corner while in the “customize button” tab.. If none of this works then pull out your 45 and put a hole in it.
Hope this helps

I have a logitech 890. The remote only turns the tv on and off but nothing else.

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.

The power flickered on and off last night and since then I cannot get my Harmony 890 remote to change channels. We have Direct TV. It will control the volumn and turn the tv on and off, but will not...

You DirecTV device may have been reset ack to RF. You'll have to make sure the device is set to accept IR commands in order for the Harmony remote to work on it.

Harmony 890 Pro will not pair with Xbox360

The RF signal is on the XBOX is used for the controllers only.

When using the Harmony 890 with a 360, you will have to use it as an IR (infrared) device. That is the only way to use a remote with the 360. If you have an extra port on your RF extender, you can place the end on the remote senor on the 360 (located under the eject button).

I set these remotes up weekly, it is a product I recommend to people all the time!

But again, the only way to setup a remote with the 360, is to use the IR port as a standard IR remote. Since the controllers run off RF, the learn function will not work, unless you already have 360 remote control to use to do the learn function.

Hope that offers some insight. This information can also be verifies at Microsoft XBOX 360's FAQ page.
