Ah hah! Same problem I have but with a Harmony 525 (which should be similar to your one anyway).

On the software, it has "InputDvd" and "InputVideo1" etc etc but on the remote it only has "InputNext" (which works), are we getting to the same point?

Anyway, for other people that hasnt had this problem, what I'm having is that when you use the "Activity" (macro) button for let's say "Watch HD DVD", the macro was set to turn the TV on & switch it to the correct input, switch the HD DVD player on, turn on the 540R Receiver & set it to the correct input - which it doesnt!!!

I personally believe that the Harmony Remote thinks that the CA 540R has a separate Input Button for each channel (Optical, Coax etc) but it doesnt, it only has a "InputNext" button which just keeps switching in a particular order.
