When all else fails, hold the off button until the remote displays "entering safe mode" and then connect it to the computer and go through the setup process again.

Adding a second Harmony

Account migration from a Harmony 1000 to 890 is not suppoted, though it may work.

1. In the software, click on the 'Remote Settings; tab.
2. Click 'Manage Remotes'.
3. Connect the 890 and click 'Replace Remote'.
4. Update the remote.

Like I said this is not supported by Logitech, so if anything goes wrong they may not help you out with it. The saftest way to get your 890 set up is to create a new account.

Bad lcd screen is there replacement screens for the 890 remote

Unfortunately, Logitech does not sell replacement LCD screens or provide repairs. However, you may be in luck. There is a guy on eBay who does some repairing for 880's and 890's. Try searching on eBay for 'repair harmony 880'

I recently upgraded my computer from windows xp to windows 7. I have a harmony 890. I know it is not compatible with windows 7. What can I do to update my remote?

According to Logitech, the Harmony Software version 7.6 is compatible with Windows 7 as is your Harmony 890. You may need to download the 7.6 version of the software. All of your settings should transfer over to the new software, since your profile is stored on Logitech's server.

Missing licence

You will have to contact Logitech regarding this problem.

Ask them why they make a remote control that requires a license because it seems rather odd.

If you can connect it to the internet for an update try that. Refer to your owners manual.
