This week I want to show you how you can add favorite channels with icons to the LCD screen of your Harmony One remote. This makes it very easy for children of any age to easily access their content on even the most complicated cable or satellite box.
You can find a few defaults within the Harmony software but most can be found on various sites online. My favorite site is iconharmony. He is a full time designer and ad man and started creating icons for himself and other forums members.
They were such a hit that with the help of another fellow AV forum member, Shaun Thompson they created the site to keep track of the rapidly growing collection of icons. To get your own icons simply go to iconharmony. Start searching by country, channel name, or alphanumerically. Select the icons you want and add them to your cart. Once you have the ones you need download the ones from your cart to your computer.
It will show up on your computer as the file: icons. Be sure to check back every week for more Harmony tips and tricks and feel free to send us your comments. I am having the same update problem with my repote and stucking with the same screen shot above. Interestingly this is the first time that I am having this problem. I am using windows XP os. I tried almost all troubleshoot options but nothing worked.
Do you suggest that I uninstall the latest version of the software and re install it before plugging in the remote? After I set up the Favorite Channels, it looks like the remote is sending the commands to the wrong device TV instead of set top box. Is there a way to change the device for the favorite channels like there is in the Customize Buttons settings page? If you are in an activity such as Watch TV and the favorite channels are being sent to your TV instead of your set top box, then the usual reason is that the set top box was not selected as the device that changes channels when setting up the activity.
To correct this just click Settings and Re-run the Activity wizard to choose the set top box instead of the TV as the channel changing device. Otherwise you can create a new activity manually and choose the set top box as the default channel changer. I have the exact same problem as mike.
Replacing a device in your account
Help, the battery on my blew up like a balloon, i replaced it an now my does not work with the Bell system. To make matters worst, the original computer used to program the remote kicked the bucket and now i have a mac pro with no software. Is there a simple fix here? Is there a way to add the downloaded icons to the directory of ones that come with the Harmony Remote Software? It would be easier if they were all in that folder so they could come up automatically without having to browse for them in another folder each time.
I have the Harmony One. I have previously had the icons working on the remote but after a recent update, they will no longer work.
Harmony One - Changing order of devices. Thread starter markbigears Start date Mar 13, Can you change the picture order of devices on the touch screen? Many thanks. The Devices that appear on the screen are those that are in the current Activity. The rest are in no particular order.
There's no facility for changing their order in the software - new ones don't always get added on to the end! Neither point matters though, as the Devices areas are for storage only, and are used only when setting up new devices. All the action is done within Activities, which is why you can change their order. You still up? Have a good sleep. I too wish I could change the order of the Devices. I don't use the Activities function at all, I prefer to use the Harmony as a simple replacement for all my remotes.
So I just go the Devices menu and do everything manually. I've set mine up both ways, as a straight replacement for all my remotes and a couple of activities, although still got an issue with inputs.I seem to remember being able to make this work in the old app, but I cannot locate a place to change the name of a Thing in the new app on iOS.

My only options are Name Change and temp offset. You can still change the icon for lightbulbs and switches and some other devices. However, it will not let you change the icon for a sensor.

Harmony Helper.In this post we are going to connect Alexa with our Logitech Harmony Hub, only to find one of the loveliest integrations of voice control. If you have not set up your Harmony devices, activities and favorites yet, it is a good time to do so. Logitech started with the red skill a long time ago. The functionality is equivalent to the retired Google Assistant integration which in fact, also has a red icon.
But then something strange happened. Last summer Logitech fell in love with Harmony, or was it the other way around? The magic is implemented by handing commands, like volume to Harmony, as soon as you start a Harmony activity. When you turn an activity off or ask Alexa to play some music, the control is handed back to Alexa.
Welcome to Harmony
The same happens, when you do not ask Alexa any Harmony related commands for 30 minutes. Note, if for whatever reason the control goes back to Alexa and you would like to control Harmony, just turn on the activity which is already running to reconnect. It sure is a matter of taste, but as speech recognition veteran I prefer the efficient, snappy blue skill to keep the commands short.
Unfortunately, the red skill is not a smart home skill. First, we need to make sure that all the activities and favorite channels we want to speech-enable are already setup in the Logitech Harmony app. Open your Harmony app and make sure what you find, is what you want to integrate with Alexa. But wait! Forgetting all scenes will also remove smart home devices and groups. Smart home devices can easily be discovered automatically by Alexa, however, groups need to be recreated by you.
Check your Groups folder and figure out what takes longer. Make sure to clean up any Harmony scenes, otherwise, you might find duplicates after the setup process and they are difficult to spot and forget later on.
You should see both skills listed, pick the blue one. The familiar Logitech login screen appears, enter your Logitech account where your Harmony configuration is stored and sign in. Authorize Amazon to access your Harmony Remote data.
Pick your main e. A list of your Harmony activities appears, where you can select which activities should be controlled by Alexa and assign friendly names. The next page displays your favorites. Again, you can customize which channels should be controllable by Alexa and assign friendly names. In the Alexa app open the Routines section. That was quick. Give it a minute until Alexa is updated to recognize the command and there we go:.
The light dims down. A bit more light at the dining table. Smooth music starts playing from your entertainment center. In case you have a second Harmony hub, you can install the red skill. The setup process is identical to above:. Having all your Harmony activities and all your favorites available as voice commands is great.
But going the extra mile to provide streamlined commands in such a smart way, makes Logitech Harmony and Alexa the perfect couple.Deals Amazon deals Bargain threads Classified adverts.

Harmony One - Changing order of devices
Ive got the majority of things the way i want but i cant change any icon pictures. I have followed the guide on the link below but the change your activity icon part doesn't come up for me. I used to have the icons set up how i wanted but for some reason I just cant manage with the updated software. Can anyone help? That's only for the newer Harmonys. Maybe you can only change them for the One with the normal set up procedure, not the new one.
Thats a good point thanks. Ill have a root around and see if i can find the disc that came with it and use the software on that. Hopefully it doesnt update to the newer one. Thanks Scott. Philip Banned. Sgoaty said:. That's correct and you don't need a disk - download the programme and away you go! Great thanks for your help. I used the older software and my account is still there!
