I'm at a loss as to why it would send any commands to the PS3 (using Nyko blu-wave) when switching activities away from the PS3. As an example, I mostly use my PS3 as a blu-ray player and to stream HD videos from my media server. A frequent activity I will do on my ps3 is start a download or file copy operation, then switch over to watch tv until it finishes. Unfortunately, when I switch away it sends the cancel ("O") command to the ps3 and causes it to stop what is is doing and sit there with a prompt "Are you sure you wish to cancel what you were doing" or something of that nature.
When I switch away from my xbox or DVR it appears to work correctly, namely just changing the input on my tv and not doing anything else, but when I switch away from the PS3 it sends out that useless, and annoying extra command. What can I do to stop this?
I have my PS3 setup to be always on, since the Nyko IR unit can't turn it on anyway. What could be causing this, or more importantly how can I stop it from happening. My workaround right now is incredibly silly, I hold my hand in front of the remote, press "watch TV" or "Play XBOX" then after about half a second I move my hand and it blocks the cancel command going to the PS3 but still allows the input change command to go to the tv.
With an old school remote based on macros this would be easy to fix, but with the Harmony I don't know how I determine which commands it is sending or how to change them when switching activities.
Solved! Go to Solution.
