Getting to know your remote
How your Harmony900 works
The Harmony900 is an Activity-based universal remote control. Using the Harmony Remote Software, you can configure the Harmony900 to control up to 15 devices. Devices are the components of your entertainment system. Theyre things like your TV, cable box, DVD player, or game console. The Harmony900 delivers powerful Activity-based control by using Smart State Technology. Thistechnology allows the Harmony900 to keep track of the devices it controls, so it always knows which of your devices are on. Using Smart State Technology, the Harmony900 switches effortlessly from watching a DVD to listening to music on the stereo with the touch of a button.
Activities are the basis for how the Harmony900 works. Things like watching a DVD, listening to radio, playing a game are all examples of Activities you can set up for your remote using the Harmony Remote Software. When you select an Activity, your Harmony900 sends a series of commands to your entertainment system to turn on the necessary devices and configure them for the selected Activity. After you select an Activity, your Harmony900 assigns the buttons on your remote so they control the proper devices and the screen displays other commands for that Activity. For information on how to select an Activity, or how to switch between Activities, see Selecting Activities.
How your RF System works
Your RF System allows you to control devices that are behind closed doors. Remote controls generally use infrared (IR) commands to communicate with your devices. These IR commands need a direct line of sight between the remote and the device to work. Your Harmony900 also sends radio frequency (RF) signals, like the ones used for cordless phones, that can go through objects, such as a closed cabinet door. Your RF system converts these signals into IR commands that reach the devices and perform therequested action, such as turning on your TV or playing your DVD. Heres how it works: You press Watch TV on your Harmony900 to start watching the news The RF signals are sent from your Harmony900 through your cabinet door The Harmony900 RF System converts the signals into IR commands The IR commands reach your TV and your cable box Your TV and cable box turn on

If you only have one device that is capable of doing something, then the software skips the question. For example, if you only have one TV, the software doesnt ask you which device displays video. If the device has more than one input, the software asks you which input the device needs to be set. If youre not sure which input a device uses, see Figuring out which type of input control you have formore information.
When you begin to add an Activity, the Harmony Remote Software will provide you with a list of inputs for your devices that use them, such as your TV or AV Receiver. The software will provide you a list of the inputs that it has on record as matching with your device. This list, however, may not match exactly and so, you can rename or add names in this list.

Two of my devices are from the same manufacturer. When I press a command on onedevice, it sends to other as well.
Many manufacturers use the same IR language for each of their devices. This means that the On command that is sent to your ACME DVD player is the same command that is sent to your ACME TV. See Assigning a device to a specific port on the Blaster for more help.
Assigning a device to a specific port on the Blaster
To assign a device to a specific port on the Blaster from your Harmony Remote Software home page: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Click the Remote Settings tab. Click Manage Remotes. In the Manage Remotes page, click Control Devices. In the Control Devices page, at the very bottom of the page, select Assign IR Port on Blaster. Click Next. In the Assign IR Ports on Blaster page, under Port, select the port you want to assign foreach device. Click Next. Click Done. On the Remote Settings page, click Update Remote.
Figuring out which type of input control you have
The first step in determining which inputs you have is to figure out how you use your devices original remote to change inputs. In general, there are four possibilities and each one is described in this section. To figure out which option your TV or AV Receiver uses, look at your devices original remote and see which option fits.
Option 1 One source button In this case, your remote has only one source or input select button. When you press the source button, your device switches to the next input and the label appears on your TV screen. Each time you press the source button, the device switches to a new source until you get back to where you started.
Option 2 Several source buttons In this case, your devices original remote has several source buttons one for each input. For example, you may have buttons labeled TV, DVD, VIDEO 1, or S-VIDEO. When you press one of the source buttons, the device switches to the source you selected and the label appears on your TV screen.
Option 3 Select the input from an on-screen menu In this case, your device uses an on-screen menu from which you can select the input you want. When you press the source button, the menu appears on your TV screen. Then, you use another button on theremote to choose the input you want, and then a thirdbutton to select the input. For example, you press the source button to display the on-screen menu, the arrow keys to select an input, and then the OK button enter your selection.
Option 4 Select the source from a list In this case, your device has a list of inputs and you can use the buttons on the remote to select the input you want from the list. After you press the source button, you have to press another button on the remote that selects the input you want. In this option, theres no menu from which to choose (Option 3) and you dont have to cycle through all inputs to get to the one you want (Option 1).
Step 1 Turn on all your devices
To determine which devices are using which inputs, Logitech recommends you start by turning on all the devices in your entertainment system. If possible, you should even start something playing in your DVD player, CD player, VCR, etc. By having all your devices on, its easier to see how theyre connected. Its also handy to have some paper and a pen so you can note which devices are connected to whichinputs.
Step 2 Watch the TV
In this step, you must use your TVs original remote control to switch between inputs. 1. Using your TVs original remote, select each input one-at-a-time. 2. For each input, note which device appears to be connected to that input. For example, if you switch to VIDEO 1 and see your DVD playing, you know your DVD player is connected to VIDEO 1. 3. Repeat step 2 for each input.

Congratulations on the purchase of your Harmony remote! This User Manual will introduce you to the basic online setup process, customizations and main features of your Harmony remote. If in doubt about how to set up your Harmony remote, follow the information and instructions using the Logitech Harmony remote software (also referred to as Harmony remote software). The Harmony remote is an Internet-powered universal remote control. Your Harmony remote can control most devices that understand infrared (IR) signals. The configuration of your Harmony remote is simple: You will be prompted to answer questions about your entertainment devices to create your own personal Harmony remote configuration. Your answers will provide us with a description of the entertainment devices you want to control, how they are set up, and your preferences for controlling them. If one of your devices is not in the Harmony remotes database, the Harmony remote software will learn about your device and add it to your configuration. Once you have told us about your devices, you will then be guided through setting up Activities. Creating Activities is simple: you will be prompted to indicate the devices you use within an Activity and how you want to control specific features, such as the volume, within that Activity. An Activity is a set of commands the Harmony remote sends to your entertainment system to turn on the necessary devices. Once you have selected an Activity, you are in Activity mode, and the functionality of each button on your Harmony remote is automatically configured for that Activity. Additionally, the display buttons will give you access to other commands for that Activity, which cannot be set to the standard buttons. Example For the Watch Television Activity, the Harmony remote sends commands to your entertainment system to turn on the necessary devices so you can watch television. The remote will automatically be configured for the Activity based on the answers you selected during the online setup process for the Activity.
At the end of the setup process, you will have your own configuration loaded in your Harmony remote. Use your Harmony remote software to: Customize any of your Harmony remotes features. Add more entertainment devices. Add more Activities.

Using Your Harmony Remote
This section provides you with information that will help you use your remote.
Recharging the Battery
Place your remote in the base station to charge. While the remotes battery is charging: The display and its backlight, and the keypad backlight remain on. The battery level icon in the status bar flashes when the battery is still charging or will display a full battery level when charging is complete.
When the battery is low, the display will flash a message to remind you to charge the battery.
Using the Tilt Sensor
When you pick up the remote slightly tilted, the display will automatically turn on and the keypad light up. Note: Whenever you pick up the remote from the base station, or replace it in the station, you will hear a beep. Use the Harmony Remote Software to enable/disable these features.
Selecting an Activity
View the Activities you have added by pressing the Activities button. The display will then list the Activities you have added. Press the corresponding display button next to the Activity you want to start. As a default, when you select an Activity, you will see a message on the remotes display reminding you to keep the remote pointed at your entertainment system while the Activity starts. This helps ensure that all infrared (IR) signals are properly sent. Use the Harmony Remote Software to turn on/off the Starting Activity message.
Viewing the Status and Navigation Bars
The status bar provides users with important information such as:
D E C B
A: Date and time B: Indicator if the USB is attached C: Indicator when infrared (IR) commands are being sent to your devices D: Battery indicator (batterys power) E: Activity you are in (if applicable) The navigation bar displays information such as: F: The number of screens available in a menu, and the screen currently displayed
Displaying Help on Your Harmony Remote
From time to time when you select an Activity, the Activity may not work. This can happen when the Harmony remote sends many infrared commands to set up all your devices for an Activity, but one or more devices are not receiving some commands. The Harmony remote is then out of sync with your devices (e.g. it thinks one of your devices is on, but it is actually off). Some of the reasons the Harmony remote can become out of sync with your system are: Someone walks between the Harmony remote and your entertainment system while an Activity is starting. You point your Harmony remote away from your system while an Activity is starting. There is an object blocking the line-of-sight between your Harmony remote and the system. You are very far away from your entertainment system. You will need to use the Help button on your Harmony remote to resynchronize the remote with your devices. Before re-synchronizing, ensure the cause of the problem has been addressed. Example Remove all obstructions so that the entertainment devices can receive the infrared commands from the Harmony remote. Note: If your devices are no longer responding consistently to your Harmony remote, but were doing so before, you may need to recharge the battery. To resynchronize: 1. Press the Help button.
2. Answer the questions on the remotes display by selecting Yes or No. If you answer no to any question, the Harmony remote will resend the necessary command and ask you the same question again. When you are done, the Harmony remote will be synchronized with your devices again.
Types of Help Available
You can customize the Help button on your Harmony remote to provide one of the following types of help: Smart help Asks questions about the devices that are on during a specific Activity. Full help Asks questions about all the devices in your system. Select Full help if you find devices arent being controlled the way you want them to and the help on the remote is not asking you questions about these devices. Use the Harmony Remote Software to select the type of help you want.
Using the Remote Assistant
Extra help is available from your remote by turning on the Remote Assistant. While the Help button helps you solve device problems within an Activity, the Remote Assistant teaches you how to use your Harmony remote. The following is an example of the type of help the Remote Assistant offers: Example If any devices are not set up correctly, press Help now. Use the Harmony Remote Software to turn on/off this feature.
Controlling Individual Devices
This section provides you with an overview of three modes you can use to access the specific features of each device.
Press Devices to enter device mode. Device mode gives you access to all the possible commands for each device included in your Harmony remote configuration. To access device mode you do not need to be in an Activity. However, you should never need to use Device mode during normal use of your Harmony remote. This mode should only be used to send a specific command to a specific device. You can eliminate the use of device mode by customizing your Activities.
Example You can put commands on the display or customize specific buttons for the commands.
See Customizing Your Harmony Remote. At any time, press Devices to switch into Device mode. Once in this mode, the Harmony remote will display a list of all the devices you have in your configuration. Select a device from the list and the Harmony remote will only control the device features for the device. Example If you choose Television as the device, the number, volume and channel buttons will all control your television. Press Devices again to return to exit Device mode.
Using the Smart Buttons
While there is a default setting for the buttons in most Activities, you can customize these buttons to send different commands. See Changing the Behavior of Buttons Within an Activity.

Changing the Behavior of Buttons Within an Activity
When you select an Activity, the Harmony remote will: Turn on all the correct entertainment devices Set the device inputs correctly Set up the remotes buttons to control the Activity Based on our knowledge of how each of your devices is controlled, the Harmony remote will make its best effort to match all the buttons you need to control an Activity. However, there may be some commands you want to add to buttons or access via the display. Commands can be added to buttons quickly and easily by customizing any Activity to change the behavior of buttons. Use the Harmony remote to change the behavior of buttons.

Set the backlight timing (for additional information, see Using the Tilt Sensor.) Set the time-display format. Show/Hide the Starting Activity message (for additional information, see Selecting an Activity.) Turn on/off the tilt sensor (for additional information, see Using the Tilt Sensor.)
Learning Infrared (IR) Commands
The Harmony remote can learn infrared commands from other remote controls, and should only be used in situations where the Harmony remotes infrared database does not already contain an infrared command you would like to use. Determine the device you would like to send the infrared command to: 1. From within the Harmony software, click Devices. 2. Click a device. 3. Select Learn infrared commands.
Using the Infrared Sensor
The Harmony remote has an infrared sensor at the end opposite to the USB connector. The Harmony remote uses this sensor to learn commands from original device remotes.
A: Your original remote B: Your Harmony remote C: Distance between remotes: 5-10 cm (2-5) apart The following steps outline what happens when you press a button on your original remote control: 1. The infrared sensor on the Harmony remote learns the infrared signal. 2. The Harmony remote uploads it via the USB cable (and your computers internet connection) to the Harmony remote database. 3. The Harmony remote software will try to find a matching pattern for the infrared signal. 4. If no pattern is found, the signal will be stored as-is in its original format. 5. If a pattern is found, the Harmony remote software converts the signal into a format for convenient storage. Either way, the signal is then available for you to assign to a button on your Harmony remote.
Naming an Infrared Command
When you teach an infrared command to the Harmony remote, give the command a name. This way you can refer to this command by name in various locations of the online setup process. It is best to use the default names listed on the Learn infrared commands step so that automatic button function assignments can be applied to your Harmony remote. Example If you teach the volume button infrared commands from your original remote control, name them Volume Up and VolumeDown (i.e. with no space, and capitalization as shown). The remote software looks for commands with these names to automatically assign them to the volume up and down buttons on the Harmony remote.
When naming a command for which there is no default name on the Learn infrared commands feature, use the following naming conventions to make button assignment and sharing infrared commands easier: Do not use spaces or special characters such as /, & or * in the name. Capitalize the start of words (e.g. NextDisc, ModeDigital). Start the command name with its main function (e.g. VolumeRearUp, VolumeRearDown, VolumeFrontUp, VolumeFrontDown). This helps group related commands in lists. For infrared commands that select inputs (e.g. on a stereo receiver), start with the prefix Input. Do not name the input based on what you have connected to your device, rather name it based on what it is called on the front of the device, or on the remote control (e.g. InputAux, InputVideo1, InputTape, InputDVD, Input VCR).
