Hi,

Has anyone got the Harmony PS3 adaptor working with Nevo?

The HEX codes from Daniel.T. don't appear to work for me.

Any help greatly appreciated.

You should be able to add it using Nevo Studio by adding a device via model based setup on www.mynevo.com. Search for Logitech PS3 adapter.

Hope this helps.

I haven't checked to see the Logitech adapter is in the database, but assuming it is, using model-based setup is definitely the way to go. The reference to Nevo's site, however, could be a little confusing, since you actually have to go through NSP, not the website, to get the code set.

sydinstaller: I realize that you already know this. ;)  Just added the clarification for others that might search here for that adapter and find this thread.

I have mine working at home... the code is in the online database. Everything but the power off works, but that gets you to the power off confirmation screen, so a macro should be able to handle it from there. When I get back in town, I'll confirm all other buttons are working and post which code I'm using.

Hi,

So to clarify this is for a colleague so I can't fully replicate his issues.

I am having mixed results.

The HEX codes from Daniel simply don't work with the Nevo.
The database codes work here in the office using my Q50 and his Logitech.

When he loads the codes onto his S70 through his NC-50 the codes are un-reliable, they skip and jump all over the place.

He is bringing in his remote and Logitech PS3 adaptor today so I can play with it a little more in the office.

Is the Logitech particulary sensitive to IR strength (like some cable stu's)?

I will let you know how it goes.

Thanks
D.

The Logitech adapter is primarily sensitive to code speed. The IR format used by Logitech is very rare, and does not have good "cross compatibility" between different remotes - they all play it back at slightly different speeds, even using the exact same codes with the same model family. The adapter ranges from no response to very slow to overly fast command sensing, depending on whether you're giving it codes that are SLIGHTLY slower or SLIGHTLY faster than it's looking for.

I emphasise SLIGHTLY as the differences shown between codes that work and those that don't is microscopic and, with any other code format, would be considered absolutely identical.

Honestly - give up on using the Harmony adapter. There's no reason to use it with any remote but a Harmony (and remember - it is not sold to be used with any remote but a Harmony). There are cheaper and more feature filled adapters that all use standard Sony DVD player codes, which are zero problem for any universal remote.

Hi,

The only issue is that in Australia Harmony is the only brand is C-Tick approved.

It would be suicide for a installer to sell a non c-tick product into a customerís house in Australia.
I.E. The customers insurance would be COMPLETELY null and void with a product that should be c-tick were not c-ticked.

That is why I want to make it work.

After some more testing I think the Nevo database codes should work and it is just an issue on this particular job.

Thanks to everyone that has helped.

Once I have a definite result I will update the post.

Ok problem fixed.

The database codes work.

Poor position of the IR bud turned out to be the issue!

A photo tells a thousand words.

Thank you again to all that helped.
