So the watch a movie button does not allow me to set the tv as a video source... but if i create a custom activity it does... the problem now is how do i assing this custom activity to the "watch a movie" button???

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!
