Question about Logitech Harmony 890 LCD Remote Control

1 Answer

My Harmony 890 remote has a difficult time inputing numbers

If I try to input numbers for the channel it jumps ahead and puts numbers in. While typing in 150 it will put in 1500 or 1150. While trying to use the channel up or down it will jump more that one channel. I have reprogrammed the remote twice, It seems to fix it for a short time (1-2 days) and then its back to the same problem

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 will not change the channels through my U-Verse box unless I am 2-3 feet from the face of the unit. The volume control works fine with my receiver.


Hi. This could be an issue with the IR emitters on your remote wearing out, or your U-verse's IR receiver could be faulty. Try controlling the U-verse with the original remote. If the same thing happens with the original remote, then it is the IR receiver (U-verse) that is the problem. If the original remote is able to control the device from the normal distance, then your 890's IR emitters are the problem.


If you find that it is the Harmony remote that is the problem, try doing a firmware update as this often solves issues. To update the firmware on your remote, log in to the Harmony software, click "Downloads" at the top of the screen then click "Firmware."


I hope this helps.

I have been struggling to get the tv to move to the correct input when I switch from watching TV with Tivo to watching a DVD. I thought I'd made the correct selections, but end up either having to use the...


There are 5 types of input switching methods that you can come accross for each device. In the Software is says there is certain input switching methods that go with certain manufacturers - This is NOT the case. The following is the list of all the inputs:

1) Toggle (Method 1): You only use one button on your original remote to cycle through a set of inputs.
2) Discrete (Method 2): You have multiple buttons on your original remote where each button goes to a particular input and stays there, no matter how many times you press this button.
3) Menu Toggle (Method 3): A menu pulls up where you can scroll through the set of inputs and select which input you would like.
4) Menu Discrete (Method 4): A menu is pulled up where you use another set of numbers to select which input you would like. (you do not cycle through each input)
5) Multi Method (Method 5): A combination of any of the above. This can also mean that you have multiples of one of the above input switching methods.

Make sure you follow through the prompts for them but the Method 5 - you would have to contact Logitech Directly to get it added!

I am trying to set up the "favorite channels" function on my harmony 880 remote and I keep getting an error message that the channel numbers are not valid. On my TV, for example, NBC is 05-1 (that's what I...


I have seen channel designations like this when using a satellite TV provider. From what I know (which is not a lot, I'm afraid) is that some affiliates offer analog and digital and digital sub channels so an example would be:

05 (main analog channel)
05-1 'digital' (depending on the receiver)
05-2 'digital sub channel'
05-3 'digital sub channel'
etc

So, you may want to try just putting in the main channel '05' when using the Logitech software to program your favorites. Below is a link to a good post on the Logitech forum that tells how to program your favorites. Hope this helps!

Abilities of Universal Remotes


Yes!
When you define different activities (such as Watch TV, Watch DVD, etc.) the remote will ask which of the TV inputs your device is plugged into.  After programming, when you select the appropriate activity, the remote will automatically select the correct input.
