I use a Logitech Harmony One. I have used it successfully for some time with an Onkyo TX-605 and other equipment (Satellite, TV, DVD, Roku). I recently replaced my old Onkyo receiver with an Onkyo TX-NR515. I removed the 605 from my Harmony One device set, installed the TX-NR515 in the standard way (the Harmony One was aware of that model) without customization, and updated my activities accordingly. Now the Harmony One will power the TX-NR515 off when I press the Harmony One power button, but will not power it back on when I choose any activity.
Can you provide a solution to this problem? Thank you.

I've experienced the same problem as you.
The use of macros with my harmony 650 let the amplificator Onky TX-NR515 completely stuck : I can't switch it on anymore, even with the original Onkyo remote !
I have to press a physical button on the amplificator to switch it on.
I managed to solve the problem using the following way :
I run the configuration software of the Logitech remote control
- I went into "devices", choosed "Amplificator AV-1", "I want to switch it off if not used", choosed to "change the ON/OFF settings"
- I choosed the option "only one button to put it on /off " , then that "I don't own the original setting but going to choose in the pre-learnt codes" , and choosed the "power toggle (ON/OFF"
Tell me if it works for you

In fact my solution didn't work so well...
The real problem comes from the fact that if the TV (Panasonic 50GT30) is switched on before the Onkyo, there is a period of 10 seconds for which you shouldn't try to switch on the Onkyo, otherwise it will be kept in the stuck state (you have to press a physical button of the ampli).
The way to solve the problem is to switch on the Onkyo before the TV : however this is not possible with the Harmony 7.7 software !!! There are some options to choose the order of the devices to be switched on, but for me it doesn't work ... The TV is always switched on first !
I've found an alternative by doing the following :
- I manually learnt the TV buttons on the "Onkyo equivalent device" of the Harmony
- I then created an activity without using the TV (only the amplificator). This way at the beginning of the activity there is the switch on sequence which switches on the ampli,and then I added a "manual" switch on of the TV through an additional command of the activity
This is not very clean, because it leads to learning manual commands of the TV on the Amplificator device, and the ON/OFF state of the TV is not taken into account for an activity change.
