Adjusting a device's power on delay

Power on delay is the amount of time between when a device first powers on and when it will begin responding to commands sent to it. If set too short, Activities may work when switching from one to another, but may not work when starting an Activity. Increase the value to lengthen the time between Harmony turning on the device and when it sends the next command.
