Did the behavior of your remote change or have you just started using the remote? If this is an initital setup, ensure that you have selected the correct model numbers and that your setup configuration is correct in the Logitech software. Many problems have been resolved by going back to the software configuration and making sure that all of the devices and mappings are correct. Assuming the programming is correct and things were working properly at one time and no longer are then you need to determine if the issue is a physical problem with the button activation (key presses are not making contact), or a software problem (corrupted programming). So here are some things to look
for:

When you press a key, do you see the 'transmit wave' icon appear at the top of the LCD screen? If so, then the remote is registering the key press. This means that the physical operation of the button is ok, so in this case, your issue is probably firmware/software related. You should update the remote's firmware and then re-load your settings. Both of these procedures are done using the Logitech software. If, after doing
a refresh of your firmware/software, there is still a problem, you can try mapping some of the hard keys to 'soft' keys on the LCD screen. So, instead of using the "Guide" button, you have a "Guide" option on the screen. The link below will explain the process for re-mapping button functions (it describes the process for the 880, but it should be the same for the 890). Hope this helps!

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 remote won't change channels or do anything. It will only change the volume. Why?


Hi. There are a couple of things that you can try to get the remote working. First, you can learn the commands from the original remote for your devices.

Also, ensure that the buttons on the remote are properly mapped to commands. You can check your button mapping my clicking "Customize Buttons" beside the icon for your Activities.

Hope that is helpful.

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.

Changes 2 channels at a time


I can help you with your Logitech Harmony 890 remote control.

The Logitech Harmony 890 remote control is programmed through the
Harmony Windows Setup Software.

I recommend resetting it up with your components to get rid of the two channel problem.

Once installed, you will simply run the program and select the devices you would like to control from menus. This program finds the right codes for you and loads them into your remote control.

You can get a copy of the Harmony 890 Manual by clicking here.

I hope that helps.
