There's a new option in Activity button mapping, Add Sequence, which allows 5 commands, and can be mapped to hard & soft buttons :thumbsup:

EDIT

But can't be added to the start or the end of an activity

Great news, thanks for the heads up.

Hopefully they will update the downloadable config program to include sequences as I use that rather than the website.

It's available on both the desktop software and the web based setup.

As for not being able to add them to the activity start and end....you can already do that anyway...nothing has changed there.

Thanks,

I now can have Planner, HD Channels, and Anytime now back on one button press for my sky hd, rather than two.

Can anyone tell me where I can get this programm or is it in the harmony software off the logitech site ??

So it is, weird, I thought I'd have to download a new version - it must download new features direct from the web.

The desktop setup is basically just a front end for the web setup anyway. All you're really downloading when you get the software is the fancy graphics and the drivers etc to actually update the remote.

I could still do that on my 885, I added Anytime (Had Planner and HD Guide like you) when it was launched using the "Learn Raw" button in Custom, if I remember correctly it had a window of a few seconds where it recorded the presses you made.

There was a post on here somewhere a while back which probably explains it better than I just did also...:rolleyes:


WooHoo!!! Just noticed they also fixed the clock, you can now have AM/PM showing instead of the 24hr clock!!!

For some reason I could not learn these in raw, maybe I was too slow in pressing the two buttons.

Anyway the update has caused a fault that Logitech are aware of. When you set up the sequence function then update your remote, it does not display in the correct place on the LCD screen, and just leaves a blank and the button does not work, although it appears randomly somewhere of the next screen page(s) and that button works? . I hope they fix this bug soon.

Rubbish, works perfectly on my 655.


That's what they have emailed back to me.

Same problem here on both my 525 and 885. Blank space in the LCD and it's on the second page of the lcd on my 525.

OK, not "rubbish" then BUT it still works perfectly on my 655, I have three of them that appear down the right hand side of the main screen on eight of my activities.
