I have a panasonic viera TH-42PV500A and a harmony 525. Until I recently tinkered with my set up everything was working great, but now I can't get my inputs to switch from AV1, 2, 3, 4 back to HDMI.
I spoke with the support people via phone but I am still waiting on a fix. Does anyone else have any problems with these so called "discrete" codes? With the panasonic you have to push red, green, yellow or blue buttons to swap inputs. I only have one HDMI input but I can no longer make it swap with the 525.
For example the xbox is on AV2, and when I go to AV2 using the xbox activity I programmed in and then try and swap to my Use PVR activity (which needs to be on HDMI) it doesn't swap back. I have tried multiple setups and I have also reconfigured many times but the 525 just can't get back to HDMI....
Just wondering if other Viera users have sorted this out?

Yes I've set the coloured buttons too. Helps out in a pinch.
When you look at your set up what do you have AV1 etc etc mapped to from the list of options in the pull down menu?

I mean in the actual config of TV under your devices panel in the Harmony software interface. I have things like Input1, VideoInput1 and AVS1 etc.
Not quite sure which ones will do the discrete pass through.
Funny thing is when I first plugged it in 12 months ago I had no probs with this, it was only when I went back in to try and add an xbox on AV4 that I had a problem, so I wonder what has changed...

It's under "Advanced Options" or "Adjust Inputs" I believe...
Then you get to set things from that drop down menu.

Great thanks, now I'm getting somewhere - mine was set to 2.
Can I ask what you have selected where is says in the drop down
Remote Button Displays Source Inputs Menu
Remote Button Confirms the source input
This is where it gets odd, because you can press red, blue, green or yellow to display the source input and confirm the source input, so not sure what to put here as it is several buttons that can do these things.
I wish I could post a screen snap of mine - I don't know what AV1S etc are even for...
These are what it shows as options and how I have them set:
AV1 (input video1)
AV1S (setAV1input AV1S)
AV2 (input video2)
AV2C (SetAV2input AV2C)
AV3 (input video3)
AV3S (setAV3input AV3S)
AV4 (input video4)
AV4C (SetAV4input AV4C)
PC (input pc)
HDMI (input HDMI1)
