  1. Hi Jason,


    not sure how far you have gone in MyHarmony interface (yes, it's a nightmare probably designed by a maze architect for alien civilizations), you may know it all already, but there are a few parameters which may lead to the situation you are describing. Each one is "device specific":

    - inter key delay: the minimal time between 2 signals, usually 100ms.

    - repeat value: corresponds approximately to the "duration of each signal", value between 0 and 3

    - power-on readyness: after power-on signal, time before send the next signal, usually 1000 to 4000ms

    - input readyness: after changing the input canal of the device, time before send the next signal, usually 500ms

    - delay between devices: don't know where to configure this one, but Logitech is describing it as: "each IR signal is received and treated by each device, and ignored if not relevant to the device. After receiving a signal, some devices enter in an analyzing and treating delay, and don't accept furthermore signal during this lapse of time." I think there is a delay added between 2 signals to different devices.


    All these can make a sequence very long, according to the various devices involved.

    By experience, you can often reduce the inter key delay to 0ms, which decreases drastically the overall delay of a sequence.

  2. Just sharing my experience since it cost me 2 hours to figure out a proper configuration:

    I use an Harmony 650 and a FLIRC receiver to control my computer.

    When I switch to the activity "watch a movie", I want my Harmony/FLIRC to do:

    - WIN+P

    - RIGHT

    - ENTER

    in order to activate dual screen on the TV. For that, I added a personnalized sequence to the activity.


    The sequence played manually was working fine (thus no pbl of button configuration), but nothing happened when the Harmony was playing it automatically.

    I suspected a problem of duration of the IR signal.

    => I changed the "repeat delay" (the cursor value between 0 and 3) of my Flirc-XMBC device in MyHarmony.com

    It was 0 by default, I set 2.

    Now it's working fine :)


    I suppose it's related somewhere, but I flashed my FLIRC with an "inter-key delay" = 6. No idea what is the exact meaning of it though :(



    Your thoughts are welcomed if you have a leaner solution ! :P
