Adjusting a device's inter-device delay

If a device is not turning on or switching inputs correctly, you may need to adjust your inter-device delay. The inter-device delay is how long Harmony waits after sending a command to one device, before being able to send a command to another.

  1. Press and hold the Help button for 5 seconds.
  2. Select Yes to confirm advanced delay fixing mode.
  3. Select the device to be modified, followed by Change Delay.
  4. Select Inter-device Delay and use the screen buttons to decrease or increase the seconds.
  5. When you're done adjusting your settings, press Done.
