Hi - I have a Harmony 665. I see that I can program it such that, for an activity, after it turns everything on, it waits before sending any remote commands. However, I have a TV that recently decided it won't make its HDMI connection unless it is turned on 2 seconds after the Receiver is turned on.

Does anyone know if there is a way, in an activity, to program a delay between the turn-on of different devices?

In the Harmony software go to Activities then select Customize, which brings you to the "Activities startup commands" page. There you can add delays and/or rearrange the turn-on order.
