When programming the remote you can have the IR come out thru the end of the remote or you can use the wireless extender and have it use RF (radio frequency) to send the information to the wireless extender which then turns it back into IR commands. The wireless extender must be pointed at the device you want to control or have the IR bug stuck to the front of the DIRECTV or device you want to control. However, that device has been configured to be controlled thru the receiver and not the remote. If you want to control your device thru the wireless extender you will need to go back into your program and tell your remote to use the wireless extender to control your device rather than the remote itself. Hope this helps.

I have a harmony 890. it turns all the equipment on/off properly except the TV (a Vizio). this works intermittently. suggestions?


Hi. Try learning the power commands for your Vizio TV from the original remote. The power commands that the Harmony remote is using may not be correct. The following tutorial by Logitech will assist you with this.

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.

Why want the remote recognize my directv HR22 remote


Hi. A lot of DirecTV remotes actually use UHF, which is a form of RF. The Harmony remote can only send and capture IR (infrared) commands. Make sure you have your DirecTV device set to receive IR, and if you have an IR remote, or can set your remote to IR, then it will work.

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 One remote won't input channels very well


Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.

To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote:
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual


Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.

The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal:
1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task
2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device.
3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object.
4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated.
5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote.
6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.

You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.
