I just purchased a PPA international #7303 HDMI switch from Fry's. I added it to my equipment and it showed up in the library, cool! But when i try to operate it, it won't respond to the remote commands. The remote it came with works great. So I then thought I would try updating the IR commands. When I did that, nothing would happen. This made me think that the receiver on my remote might be bad so I grabbed a different remote and it programmed just fine. It seems that the PPA remote must speak some strange language? It is IR, I even turned on my digital camera and pointed the remote into the lens to see what sort of flashes it does. It look like any other remote, very fast on and off flashes..But the Harmony just refuses to record the transmission..Any ideas? Should I just count the switch as cheap crap an take it back and get a better one?

Yes, that's what happens with Ones that are "difficult" to "learn".
Try asking Logitech support for their advice on how to resolve the problem, but don't rely on the advice working.

2. make the button press on the original remote as quick as possible (don't press and hold at all, just press and immediately release).
3. place a towel under the two remotes, while having them lay flat on the desk.
the One's can be quite sensitive.....
if you're using a laptop, unplug the laptop and work from battery power to do the learning.
all of these steps help reduce the interference
