I just got a pair of HR-24s, and the only thing I hate about them is the remote. What a terrible and awkward layout. Fortunately, I have a Harmony One, so I'm starting a thread to share programming ideas. I'm pretty sure these apply to most of the HR-2x boxes and some of the other Harmony remotes too, but this setup is based on Logitech's default HR-24 settings. Here's my settings for my Watch DirecTV activity. First, I created sequences for: Closed Captions (toggle): Yellow, DirectionDown, DirectionDown, Select. Manage Recordings: Menu, DirectionDown, DirectionDown, DirectionDown, Select. (I wanted to make this a To Do List, but you still need to press another Select, so this will have to do.) Smart Search: Menu, DirectionDown, DirectionDown, Select. For the touch screen, I added the 4 colors to the first screen (I now think not having dedicated buttons for them is the only drawback to the H One). I also added buttons for the sequences Smart Search and Closed Captions, and the D* remote buttons Format, and Active. I also have buttons assigned for various and common TV and A/V Receiver functions just to avoid switching to Device mode, but that's for another thread. All the labeled Harmony One buttons are the HR-24 default, except: For the Page Up Arrow, I assigned to (Now Playing) List. For the Page Down Arrow, I assigned the Manage Recordings sequence. (These two buttons are great places to assign your favorite functions, since they're in thumb's reach, and with D*, page up and down are already assigned to the channel buttons when in the menus.) For the Play button, I re-assigned it to the SlowPlay command, so it works like the original remote, where you hold down the Play button to enable Slow. For the Reverse button, I re-assigned it to the SkipBackToTick command, so you press quickly for reverse speeds 1-4, or hold down the button to skip back to the previous tick mark, 15 minute mark, or end of the program. For the FastForward button, I re-assigned it to the SkipFwdToTick command, so you press quickly for FF speeds 1-4, or hold down the button to skip forward to the next tick mark, 15 minute mark, or end of the program. The Plus button is now assigned to the Dash (minus) command. (Not very intuitive, but what can you do?) I've only had this for a couple of weeks, so I'm sure there's lots of other ideas and shortcuts out there. What have you got?
