I too have had major issues trying to setup watching a movie via AllShare as an activity on my Harmony 700.  I got it to work, by adding AllShare as an input, but it then fouled up all my other formerly working TV activity inputs!  When I went back to Watch TV, it couldnt properly identify HDMI1/Cable STB!  Then when I tried to go to Watch a DVD it couldnt properly ID my HDMI2/DVD.  After [keep it couteous] with it for over an hour I had to ultimately delete each device and start over!

 

Although I love the Harmony, I'd think that with the proliference of video libraries and smart tvs that this would already be incorporated into the Harmony remote as an activity.  After all, I had to input my TV model, etc in... the models with AllShare are easy to ID, so this should be an easy thing to remedy in a future sw update... right???

 

PS - My only workaround is to go to Device, TV, then navigate via TV menu to AllShare... just what I had to with Sammy remote, I guess I just want my new smart Harmony to be smarter!
