Can't you just tie a bunch of helium balloons under each armpit to take some weight off? With enough balloons, you could float about the house with some strategically-placed fans…


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

laugh Great idea! Maybe link each fans IR signal to my remote for some control; thus switching them on and of when needed...

We should work on this. It seriously beats a track lift smile .

Hey guys, I need some help with my Harmony remote, please.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, I have connected the Harmony extender up to my components using stereo patch cables. Everything is working perfectly fine, but my 3808 will only turn on.

I did as Chris suggested, and plugged the cable into the "remote in" input on the back of the receiver. Is there something I'm supposed to do so the remote will turn it off also? It will turn on with an activity and when I use the receivers on button via the remote, but it won't turn off either way.

I'm really quite confused.

Help is greatly appreciated as always.

Thanks.

Not sure if this is it, but under each activity you can tell the remote which devices to turn off or leave on.

Sorry maybe the setting is under each device , ... but it is there

Thanks for the response, Jeff (it's Jeff, right eek ?), but I haven't touched the programming of the remote, and it turned the receiver on and off when I was using the extended to send an IR signal. Now that it is plugged directly into the receiver, it only turns on for some reason. It's also not only when I use the activity. It also won't turn off when I go into the menu for the receiver and use the "off" button.

Maybe there is a setting in the receiver that I need to change?

I wonder if the receiver needs to use the "discrete off" command when being controlled over the remote in port.

Thanks, Chris. I looked up "discrete off", and it talks about codes which is extremely confusing to me. Is this what you mean? Or is something (hopefully) as simple as changing a setting in the remote software?

I didn't want to get into something really technical mad . This project keeps going on and on.

I appreciate the help, guys.

It's a remote code.

With normal remotes, you're sitting in front of the device, and if it's off you hit the power button and it turns on, if it's on it turns off.

With automation and multifunction remotes with macros, in the situation above the remote has to know the state of the device. Otherwise, it'll be turning it off when you want to turn it on. That's were the discrete codes come in (you'll also find them for input selection, instead of using next vs. previous input, and things like that).

My theory is that when using the rear input the receiver me be setting itself into a home automation mode where it is requiring the use of the discrete off command to turn it off, so a spurious, generic "power" command doesn't turn it off when you actually want it to be on.

Okay. I don't know where to go from her confused . I'll search around online today, but if you or anyone else can help me further, I'd be grateful.

Thanks, dude.

Well, I found these, but I don't know what the heck I'm supposed to do with them.
