I've got a reciever (HK AVR2600) and a Harmony 1100, is there a button I can create so that when pressed goes directly to a preset volume level? Kinda like the hardcoded mute button? My little girl (1 year old) keeps turning the dial up on the reciever causing the volume to go up. Of course being 1 year old it's hard to tell her "NO", and have her understand. I'd love to create a button so that when pressed goes back to my normal listening level. I've sent an inqury to Harman Kardon to ask whether or not it is possible to program the reciever to disable the hard volume control knob whilest still having the ability to control the volume via a remote, and they said it is not possible. Any help would be appreciated!
Also, is there anything new coming down the pipeline with regards to the "Logitech Harmony Remote Software"? Possibly an upgrade?

In general a Harmony remote can't do anything the device itself doesn't support. So unless your AVR2600 supports a method of targetting a specific volume level then I'd think the answer to your question is "no."
I suppose on a Harmony remote that supports sequences you might be able to create a sequence to perform a large-step audio change but it would still be relative to the starting position. i don't know if Logitech support could custom-program something similar for you if your remote doesn't support sequences. You could also try to do something like that yourself by seeing how large an audio step you can create by learning volume change commands manually in raw mode.
P.S. If your receiver's volume knob isn't motorized, then you might be amazed how well a strip of sticky black electrical tape placed around the circumference will impede manual adjustment. Sure, it is a low tech solution with questionable aesthetics, but it might do the trick and isn't a permanent modification.
