I know this isn't exactly the right forum to post this information, but I think it might be helpful to some people. I know many people that have an HR20 also have a Harmony remote, and a PS3. There is now an IR solution for the PS3 that can be programmed into the Harmony remotes. I have an 880 and it works very well. A company called NYKO is now making a remote with a USB receiver that converts the Bluetooth commands to IR. I paid $13.99 at Amazon, but it is also available at NewEgg as well. If this is too far off topic for this forum, a moderator can remove. Here's two links for the remote:

How did you program the Harmony? The last time I looked the Harmony Data Base didn't provide any of the PS 3 commands.

Thanks in advance...

The Nyko remote is in the database, so I added the Nyko device as a game system.

Does the IR dongle actually "translate" the Nyko remote code to a PS3 language? Or would any IR USB dongle work if I can just download the codes via Harmony's web interface?

I'm only guessing, but I think the dongle translates the Nyko remote code to PS3 language.
