How to upgrade from Harmony Remote Software v7.x to MyHarmony

An overview of the steps required to update your remote from our older Harmony Remote Software v7.x to the new MyHarmony desktop software.

Why to upgrade


This article is only relevant for Harmony One, and 600/650/700.

If you own a compatible remote, such as Harmony 600, 650, 700 or the Harmony One, and have been using Harmony Remote Software v7.x — we strongly recommend upgrading to our current setup and configuration software, MyHarmony.

Your devices, Activities, any taught IR commands, configurations made to your device delay or device input settings will be copied from your old remote to your new one. Customizations made to your button mappings will revert back to the Harmony defaults; however, you may reconfigure these once setup is complete — Learn more. If your new remote supports Favorite Channels, you’ll be asked to set these up again.
