So I purchased the Harmony One today and from out of box to setup it's a wonderfully fun and easy remote to use. I'm beginning to try to get a feel for the more advanced things I would need it to do. Is it possible when I set it to say 'Watch a DVD' to not only set the tuner, tv, and dvd player, but to go into the tv menu and set the picture mode from normal to dynamic or back to normal? My theater settings for my dvd are dynamic but for something like video games the normal settings are needed. So I am pretty confused if this can even be done or how. Thanks for the help.

If you have a discrete button for dynamic mode then yes. But you probably do not - like mine. The picture mode just toggle through. Lets say you have 4 modes if you always go into the DVD activity from normal mode it is possible to add say two picture mode enters to get to dynamic. You could then add two more at the end of the activity to get you back to normal.

I have not done this. I have a 890pro with a picture button and I just use that.

To be more clear, you can add commands to the beginning and end of any activity so if you can identify the commands that are needed to put your TV into dynamic mode you can add those to the activity start sequence. You can do the same for activity exit (putting it back to normal). When you setup the activity and it asks if the configuration is correct choose the "Yes, but I want to add more control" option and it will allow you to add the extra commands.
