Introduction

Congratulations on the purchase of your Harmony remote! This User Manual will provide you with information on the main features and customizations for 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. For more information see Devices.

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 remote's 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. An Activity is a set of commands the Harmony remote sends to your entertainment system to turn on the necessary devices.

Setting up 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.

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 be automatically configured for the Activity based on the answers you selected during the online setup process for the Activity.

For information see Activities.

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 remote’s features.

Devices

A device refers to the individual components that make up your home entertainment system.

Examples of devices

TV, DVD player, digital set top box, Tivo®

Adding Devices to Your Account

Before you can add devices, you must install the software from the CD that was packaged with the remote, or from the Logitech web site. Once you have installed the software, you will be prompted to create a member account so that you can store your information about the devices in your home entertainment center.

After you have created an account the software will guide through a step-by-step process that will ask you questions about the type of devices you have (manufacturer and model information), and how you want to use and control them.

Updating Devices in Your Account

After you have set up your Harmony remote, should you want to update any devices stored in your account—you're replacing an existing device with an upgraded model, or you have purchased a device for the first time—you can log in to your account, and edit your list of devices and settings.

You will need to update the remote with your latest changes.

Understanding Inputs

This section provides a description of what inputs are, where they are commonly located, and some suggestions on how to tell what input a specific device uses.

Overview of Inputs

Home electronic devices such as televisions, DVD players, and stereo receivers require an audio and/or video signal to perform their intended purpose (playing sound or a DVD). The source of the signal can come from a cable company, an antenna, a satellite, a DVD player, etc. Typically, the signal is sent via a cable, or multiple cables that plug into your device. The connector that the cable plugs into is called an input.

There are different types of inputs, and sometimes a single device can have more than one type of input.

Examples

RCA inputs Co-axial inputs Optical inputs

An input is the connector on a device through which a signal (audio, video etc.) enters the device. An input can also refer to a signal sent to a device.
