Adjusting a device's command repeats

Remotes (both the manufacturers and Harmony) send commands several times to ensure accurate delivery of the signal. There are some cases when Harmony may have this number set wrong.

Command repeates

  • Lower a devices repeats if pressing a command causes you to jump up or down several times in a menu. The same applies for volume controls on a soundbar or AV receiver.
  • Increase this devices repeats if you find yourself pressing the same command multiple times before a device responds.
