V6 and Harmony!

I should be getting my Harmony Remote delivered tomorrow, and was wondering if there is a special code or anything to pair it up to operate the V6 box as all the other AV gear I have is branded (Samsung, Onkyo, etc)  and the V6 isn’t?

Re: V6 and Harmony!

Get my V6 next week. Asked on here a few days ago about Harmony remote/hub and a number of people report it works fine without making any changes to the remote. So it seems that if it works with your Tivo it will be fine with the V6.

Harmony remotes do not use codes to connect to devices. Everything is done via an application on your PC.

Re: V6 and Harmony!

As others have said, its fine. I had mine programmed for TiVo and haven't needed to change anything to use it with my V6. Saying that, you can add the most used buttons to the Harmony manually as well, which i find is needed unless you want to keep scrolling through the menu screen on the remote.

Re: V6 and Harmony!

As the V6 remote is RF how do you get it to "teach" harmony a command. I want to "teach" the new Search button ?

Unpaired, the V6 remote is exactly the same as the old TiVo remote and works by IR.

Re: V6 and Harmony!

The V6 remote does also work in IR mode, so I suppose you could de-pair the remote from RF mode, teach Harmony the new Search button, and then re-pair the remote back to RF mode.

Re: V6 and Harmony!

Ive not used my Harmony that way. I have only programmed it using my PC. Ill have a look tonight and see if the Search button is an option.

Re: V6 and Harmony!

There's been no reply so I'm guessing it's not possible to unpair?
