Harmony 555 questions

Morning all

Thinking of getting the above remote and have a couple of questions;

1. Do you have to use the activity buttons all the time? The remote would be
for upstairs and sometimes I have the amp on and sometimes not - depends how I feel - so if I had it set up as an activity to watch a DVD with the amp on could I just watch a DVD easily without the amp on by not using the activity buttons at all and using the remote as "normal"?

2. If I used the remote for my upstairs equipment - could I set up the same remote to control the downstairs kit? It can take 15 devices, would this be to complicated to do? (first time looking at the remote so would probably buy another for downstairs eventually if all goes well though)

For 1), you would set up 2 activities for Watch DVD...one "Watch DVD no amp" and one "Watch DVD w/amp" (you can call them whatever you like).

2) would be similar...just set up activities for both rooms. ie "Watch TV upstairs" and "Watch TV downstairs".

You can have up to 255 activities, so just create one for every possible situation.
