Adjusting a device's inter-key delay

Inter-key delay is the amount of time Harmony waits between sending commands to a device. Too short a delay and your device might ignore some of the commands.

Inter-key delay

Tip

Increase the value to lengthen the time between Harmony sending commands (e.g. missing numbers when changing channels).

Decrease the value if your Harmony remote sends commands too slowly (e.g. the channel changes before receiving all numbers).
