The code posted in this thread can be added to your account for testing. It is in Hex format which can be converted for a Harmony remote. If you would like, you can contact Technical Support to have them add it to your account for testing.

So if Logitech knows this problem and I already see somebody posted the Hex code, then why don't they update it or why didn't they fix my problem yesterday?
The post says that it did work.
Didn't you tell support that, and ask for the same for your account, instead of the 8+1 workaround?

I appreciate everyone's desire to improve the Harmony input switching with Sharp TV's. I also want to extend my thanks for willingness to improve the database for all future users. I would be happy to follow-up with Technical Support regarding this issue. The key question I have for everyone, the original poster HoTiCE's TV model number was LC-52D85U. Is everyone else using the exact same model number?
If you need to test the discrete command found in this thread, please contact Technical Support (or PM me directly) to add this for you. In regards to improving the default profile for Sharp TV LC-52D85U, if anyone can confirm that this works for this model number (or any other Sharp TV for that matter) I will certainly forward this information to Harmony Technical Support.
billtrent - Thank you for your hard work in locating this command for Sharp LC-46D85U. I will submit a request to have the global device profile updated with this code. Future generations of Harmony users salute you
P.S. - As rehaz1 mentioned, we have no control over what codes exist for your TV, only the manufacturer decides this and builds that functionality into your TV. From experience I have seen that most original Sharp TV remote's use a menu or cycle method to switch inputs. While these methods work, they are not the fastest or most reliable way to switch inputs. Harmony Technical Support has been hard at work improving the database for years by adding discrete input codes (among other device improvements), enabling Harmony users to have a much more enjoyable experience. While we cannot simply "create" these discrete codes (believe me I wish we could ), but we understand that they are faster and more reliable. This is why those codes are promoted whenever possible, in a sense adding a new feature for your TV you maybe didn't know existed.
