    :lease:

    After a call to the Help Desk and a bit of “playing around” I do have my Harmony 655 set up as I want. I was impressed with the Help Desk and the ability of the unit itself to help solve problems. The Help Desk however would not give definitive advise on how I have set up my devices. I have setup my Pio XDE435 as a TV and Set Top Box as well as specifying the Denon 3910 twice as DVD and CD. It was suggested that it could be easier to just specify each one once (i.e. TV and DVD). OI would appreciate any comments from anybody with a similar set up as to which option you would go for and why.

    TIA

    set each device once only, then select each device for each activity EG watch DVD is TV on HDMI DVD and AMP listen to radio is just amp and listen to CD is DVD and amp (appropriate inputs), hope this helps.................

    The very patient man on the Logitech help desk got everything working OK. A tip other Harmony users, my problems were due to not having sufficient time for sending the activity control signals to the various devices (I never realised it takes about 15 seconds for the XDE to get going). Another thing is to remember to keep the remote pointing at the equipment for the full time.

    Also thanks to those who suggested the 655, it is a very useful piece of kit.

    Regards
