Just purchased Harmony One. Followed Setup online. My Dish Network VIP722k is currently connected to Panasonic Plasma by HDMI.
Harmoney One works great on reciever, DVD, tv, but not DVR. It is not powering it on.

To get any harmony remote to control the DVR I had to set the Dish box and remote to be remote #1. Your installer may have set it up to be a different number if you have more than one receiver installed.
To change, use the Dish remote for all steps: * go to the SYSINFO screen (from the Installation screen), * press the SAT button until all 4 device buttons light and the SAT button flashes, * press the 1 button and wait a second, * press the REC button, the SAT button should flash a couple times - then - the SYSINFO screen should show that you're using REMOTE 1.
in addtion for a k model
to change from RF to IR, it was necessary to change to software/firmware settings in the PVR as well as move the dipswitch setting inside the remote. in order to change the PVR setting, i was told to press and hold number "zero" until a Wizard appeared. The Wizard walked me through the adjustments which were simple.

Correct TV2 uses RF and will not be changed
If you want to control TV2 with a harmony you would need to purchase this
and could you please mark as solved

So I finally had a chance to work on the DVR remote. I followed the suggested steps you included. In checking sys info on the DVR it tells me that my remote is "remote 1" and it is set for IF. However my Harmony remote is still not turning on the DVR. Any thoughts? Are the steps I might be missing on the softwared setup for Harmony One?

Run the trouble shooter for the the 722 and report back the results.
Also see that it is using seperate power commands.

OK, Figured it out.
First of all thanks again for all your help. I had a steep learning curve on terminology. Changing the remote to #1 reflected the need change the remote address to #1 (it had defaulted to 3). Remote was set to IR. The below directsion were dead on except for one small addition.
To change (remote address on remote number 1 to " channel 1"), use the Dish remote for all steps: * go to the SYSINFO screen (from the Installation screen), (you can also hit menu button twice) * press the SAT button until all 4 device buttons light and the SAT button flashes, * press the 1 button and wait a second, * press the # button* press the REC button, the SAT button should flash a couple times - then - the SYSINFO screen should show that you're using REMOTE 1 with Channel 1.
Now have Harmony working with DVD player, Tuner, Sat/TV and CD. Of cource after getting all of that to work I then finally got around to routing the DVD, Plasma, SqueezeBox, etc into my Denon. So now I have to re do all my activities to incorporate the Denon in it's steps. That however will be a project for tomorrow. Thank you again for your responses. This thread is officially closed in my book.
