I just got an X-box 360 and installed it on my last HDMI input on my Samsung PN50A450P1D that is the HDMI3 input on the side. the input activates and i can title it and if I press the source button on the remote(original to TV) it will go to HDMI3 and my other tasks (PS3, TV, Wii, and Radio) all switch fine including HDMI1 and HDMI2. Help, maybe the direct codes Logitech has online for Input HDMI3 is incorrect while the coding for Input HDMI1 and Input HDMI2 are correct seeing as the harmony can go directly to the correct source but my Samsung remote makes me scroll through all inputs. Any help?!?!?

You could set the Activity to HDMI2 and add an additional input next command to the start of the Activity

I just recently experienced the same problem when installing a Sony Blu-Ray player on HDMI3 of Samsung HL-T6176S. I am using a Harmony 680, HDMI1 for satellite box and HDMI2 for Sony DVDplayer/surround sound. The "watch TV" and "watch DVD" buttons work as expected and change inputs to the correct one with no problems. However, the remote will not switch the TV to HDMI3 to play a BLU-Ray even when when trying to use the help button. It appears to me that there must be something wrong with the Harmony's command to the TV for HDMI3. The green light on the tv blinks as if it is receiving an IR command but does not respond by changing the input or doing anything else noticeable. My guess is that we are experiencing the same problem...

Beautiful solution towboy123 works great, simple,I love it. Redsport02 you should do the same there definitely seems to be a problem with the HDMI3 IR command but this solution goes around it without notice. Harmony Maven, thanks for the input unfortunately all commands allowed, even in the drop down screen for additional activities or device controls did not show any other worded variations of that particular input, good thought though. hhatkin I'm not quite sure of the intentions of your comment maybe some clarification, Thanks. And thank you to all for contributing I have to admit this is the first forum I've joined and used and the communities wealth of knowledge and desire to help is fantastic.

Never mind hhatkin I just realized you were referring to Redsport02 and their thread earlier where you tried to help them out. Redsport02 again try this before continuing to post the same question on multiple threads this is an easy fix 5 min tops.

I will try this later today and post the results on my thread of the work-around. I actually posted my message on your thread before creating my own, mainly to highlight that this appears to be a problem that may need to be addressed by Logitech across at least 2 different Samsung models. It also has the affect of bumping your thread to the top of the list with the addition of each new comment, my intent was not to hijack your thread.

OK so this problem will exist on many Samsung TV's that are coming up 2 years old with 2 HDMI's on the back and one on the side.
The reason for the problem is that the CPU and harware are equiped for 4 HDMI inputs but one of the inputs on the back is not present. This means that only 2 are available on the back instead of 3. So far as the the CPU is concerned the input on the side is actually HDMI4.When using the next input function, the software is set to skip the real HDMI3 (on the back) and go straight to HDMI4. Adding further confusion, the name label on HDMI4 has been changed to HDMI3 so that when you select next input after HDMI2, it goes to HDMI4 but displays the name HDMI3!!! Confused????
The resolution is to tell the harmony that you have a later model TV that actually has 4 real HDMI inputs. When you want to select the side HDMI (labelled as HDMI3 on the TV) use the HDMI4 control on the harmony remote. It will transmit the discrete HDMI4 code and the TV will select HDMI4 that is labelled an known by you as HDMI3!
You can try model PS50C550G1WXXU as that has 4 real HDMI ports!
I dont recommend, but you can see the space on the pcb for the real HDMI3 input on the PCB and I suspect it wouldn;t be that difficult to reinstate this input if you needed!!!!!
Worked for me :0)

Old thread, I know, but I thought I'd add my solution to this problem.
I have a Samsung LE32R88, and have a Virgin media STB on HDMI1, a PS3 on HDMI2, and now my Raspberry Pi on HDMI3.
The software doesn't have an HDMI3 input for my TV, but it works if I select 'InputSvideo3' for the Raspberry Pi.
I found this by just configuring every input command to buttons, and by trying each one in turn.
