In the bedroom I have wall mount tv and the behind cabinet doors I have Directv dvr, audio receiver, blue ray and firetv. I have been using a harmony with hub but it is hit and miss with the signals inside the cab. I replaced the harmony irís with some singles ones I had to mount to each component but it seems worse now. I guess since the are not Logitech brand they are messing up the mix. Any ideas for something that would work. Thanks Michael

Hi Hornnumb2 I would suggest a pair of Harmony IR precision cables.

They will allow you to control your devices with better accuracy.

Below is a link to the product page.


https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/harmony-precision-ir-cables


Precision IR cables are compatible with your Harmony hub. This includes Harmony Elite, Ultimate, Harmony Smart Control and Harmony Ultimate Hub remotes.

I would also suggest to assign devices to specific ports.
  1. Launch the Harmony mobile app and connect to your Harmony hub.
  2. Select MENU, then HARMONY SETUP > ADD/EDIT DEVICES & ACTIVITIES.
  3. Select REMOTE & HUB and then press the IR ASSIGNMENTS button.
  4. From there you're able to select your device, and modify it's assignment to a specific port.

Hi Michael

I would suggest splitting the devices between port 1 and port 2.

Assigning the ports avoids devices from receiving commands from other devices allowing you in some cases to lower the inter-device delay.

Link that explains Inter-Device-Delay
