Make sure you're pushing the "mode" button first so it doesn't think you want to turn it off. some remotes will confuse "tv" with "tv power" if the "mode" button isn't utilized.

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.

Everything works except no picture of tv


The Television may be out of synchronization with your remote or may be configured incorrectly.

1. In front of your Television, press the Help button on your Harmony Remote.
2. Answer No when asked "Did that fix the problem?"
3. The Harmony will then ask, one by one, if all of your required devices powered on when the Activity was started. Answer Yes or No until all required devices are powered on.
4. Answer No if the remote asks if the TV is set to the correct input needed for the Activity. In this example Input 4 is used, though this may vary from your setup. If the TV switches to another input but no picture is seen, continue answering No until an image appears.
5. If you now have a picture on your TV screen, answer Yes when asked if the problem is now fixed. Your television was simply out of synchronization with your Harmony One and should now work correctly. Please try switching between your other Activities to see if they switch correctly. If this has not fixed the problem, proceed to the next section Confirming your Activity Settings.

To confirm your Activity Settings, please follow the steps below:

1. Launch the Logitech Harmony Remote software and login to your account.
2. Click on the Activities tab on your home page
3. Click on the Settings button for the Activity you wish to troubleshoot.
4. Select Review the settings for this Activity and click on the Next button.
5. Confirm the input chosen for your television is correct. Select No, I want to run the setup wizard again to change these settings and click on the Next button.
6. Click on the Next button through the Activity setup screens until you arrive at the screen asking the question "What input or channel does your ... TV need to be on? From the list, select the input that the TV uses for this Activity. Once finished, click on the Next button.

**NOTE: It is recommended to perform these steps for all Activities that use the television.

8. Click on the Done button on the Set Up Activities: Summary page.
9. Click on the Done button on the "Select the Activity settings you would like to modify" screen.
10. When you have finished, click Done to save your changes.
11. Click on the Update Remote button to update your remote.

PROGRAMING A LOGITECH HARMONY ONE?


It looks like you are speaking about the soft keys when you are in the "watch TV" activity and you have a cable box. These buttons exactly match your original remote. In other words the "A" button on the screen of the Harmony will do the same thing as the "A" button on your original cable remote. If these buttons are not functional on your original remote or if your original remote does not have them I would get rid of them. This is done by logging into your software. Go to the activities page and you will see a link to "customize buttons" under the watch TV activity, click on that. You will then see a page with two tabs that will say "standard buttons" and "additional buttons". Click on "additional buttons" and you will see the "A" "B" "C" and so on. Click on the trash can icon and you will have reomoved that button.

As for programing favorites go back to the Activities page and click settings below the watch TV activity. Select "setup favorite channels and add icons" and click next. Now you are on the page where you can add your favorite channels. Have fun with this and pay attention to the hints on the right hand side.

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!
