Hi. I'm about to redo my home theater setup and am planning on getting a Harmony 900 to control everything, but before I do I want to be sure it will work for my setup. The main difficulty is that in one location I will have three TVs (two of which are identical) and three cable boxes (at least two identical and maybe all three -- for now I'm assuming they'll all be indentical, and if I can get a configuration for that it will obviously work if only two are). I have three possible setups in mind, but I'm not sure of some of the limitations I'll encounter, so I'd love to hear confirmation on which of these will work (or other alternatives). Thanks in advance!
In the Configuration One I need only the Harmony 900 (along with the IR receiver and two mini-blasters it comes with) along with two sets of IR Precision Cables (http://www.logitech.com/en-us/remotes/universal-re
In the Configuration Two I would use an extra mini-blaster (and maybe an extra precision cable). If I'm able to add an extra mini-blaster (would I need to purchase the entire RF System to get it?) and if I can then separate the signals so that each cable signal goes only to one of the three mini-blasters, then that should work. The questions are 1) can I have three mini-blasters on one IR receiver and 2) if I can, can a signal be sent to any one (exactly one) of the three 3) if so, can I purchase one mini-blaster or should I just buy the RF system?
If each IR receiver can only support two mini-blasters then Configuration Two wouldn't work, so here's another option. In the Configuration Three the setup is the same as Configuration Two, except now I'm using the extra IR receiver that comes with the RF system. The question now is: with this setup, can the remote be setup to send a signal any one (exactly one) of the three mini-blasters?
Sorry for the long description, but I wanted to spell everything out as clearly as possible upfront. I'd greatly appreciate any feedback. The Harmony 900 looks great and I'm hoping there's a way of making it work with my setup! Thanks again :-)

Woops! Sorry about that! I saw that this was for "setup and configuration" and didn't notice the MyHarmony Software part.
Is there a way I can delete or close out this thread?
