Thanks, I have done that for myself, but this is a remote for my parents. As well as the TV, DVD, Freeview & VCR, I've also added their stereo and CD player that they don't use much so wanted to put them on the second page of devices and move the DVD player to the first just to make it a bit easier for them.czzer said:No, but there is a solution. When the remote is setup properly you should pretty much never need to select an individual device anyway. You should always be in activity mode, so spend the time to set p your activities properly.

Fair point if that suits your usage, but for me, and my parents too, 99% of the usage is activity based. I have a TV Drive, TV, Xbox 360. DVD Player and VCR and in the couple of months I've had the Harmony, have never used it in device mode.KingKrell said:Sorry, taking this away a bit but...
I can never understand how people cope with just activities unless you are have only basic device use. I'd have to create loads or so ever so slightly different activities if I did that, which is double my devices. This is one reason why I prefer a device based remote (with combined layout buttons to reduce swapping to a min).
The inabilty to change the order of or delete the myriad of unwanted entries on the LCD screen (on a Hamrony 525 I tried) was one of the things that went down as a -ve for me.
Thanks czzer.czzer said:After using an activity based remote, I could never go back to device based...just too cumbersome to use.
There will always be times when you need to use device mode, but for me these are very few and far between(and I have a quite complex setup with a projector and CRT TV), and the advantages of activity mode far outweigh the extra button press or 2 required to select a device which happens to be on page 2.
Also, you can reorder and delete unwanted commands from device mode. Just delete the label and the command is gone! The only thing you can't do is change the order devices are displayed in when first selecting them.
