I own an LG TV (55LX6500) and use the Wireless Media Kit (AN-WL100W) to send it inputs from other devices (Blu Ray Player, cable box, XBox, and Apple TV). I cannot get the Harmony One remote to land on the correct input for any Activity.
The Harmony software has discrete commands for each input for the TV (input HDMI1, input HDMI2, etc). However, having them connected to the Wireless Media Kit adds additional inputs that are wireless ("Wireless HDMI 1", "Wireless HDMI 2"). There is no single click in the Harmony software to get to a wireless input. On the LG remote, I click "Input" and then have to arrow through the options to get to the one I want. These are never in the same order! The "active" inputs are first in the list and when I turn off a device it takes a while to drop off of the "active" list.
If I haven't touched the TV all day and want to watch cable (input: Wireless HDMI 1) then the input order will be "TV"--> "Wireless HDMI 1". I used method 3 to set this and it will work in this instance. However, if I then want to switch to the XBox (input: Wireless HDMI 3) then the input order becomes "TV" --> "Wireless HDMI 1" --> "Wireless HDMI 3"--> followed by all of the unused inputs in no apparent order. Method 3 cannot do this because some of the unused inputs (Wireless HDMI 1) are active and some aren't. It only compounds the problem if I want to then go back to watching the cable box as I then has inputs "TV" --> "Wireless HDMI 1" --> "Wireless HDMI 3" --> followed by all of the unused inputs and I want it to land on "Wireless HDMI 1".
Someone mentioned setting the number of "Input Next" to get to the right input with method 3 but because the order of inputs changes and the number of active inputs changes this doesn't seem to work for me.
Surely someone else has the Wireless Media kit and has figured out a way around this?!? It seems silly to manually adjust the inputs every time (what's the point of a $150 remote then?). I've scoured the internet and cannot find anything. I'd like to see if anyone has any tips or has contacted LG/Logitech with this issue.

I have that box also- I got close to an answer by adding all of the other inputs to my harmony one.
However it has a max of 16 and I need 20 or more...
wireless AV1 (Wii Default)
wireless HDMI1 (PVR default)
wireless HDMI2 (DVD Default)
wireless HDMI4 (Laptop default)
I am using option 3
as my options
