Welcome to the forum and I'm sure there'll be a lot of ideas when you explain the problem.
What Harmony do you have? What does the Troubleshoot do about the problem? - Is it actually about setting the TV's inputs? If so does it apply to more than one of them? - Does it happen both when starting the first activity of a session and when switching from one activity to another? Is the default Method 2 still selected at Adjust Inputs? - If so have you correctly edited the input names list and assigned the correct commands to the remaining names? - Have you gone to Adjust Delays and tried various values for the Power-On?

Thanks for the speedy reply.
I have a One blasting the TV directly and the AVR and PC through a Buffalo flasher. The PC uses one of the HP eHome receivers.
By troubleshoot, I assume you mean the "Help" on the remote? It just tries turning things on again and setting the inputs again. Everything is always set correctly, though. There's just no signal recognized by the TV sometimes. Sometimesthe wrong resolution is displayed by the TV (my MC is surrounded by a black box).
Right now, this is my only Activity and I don't use any other inputs or outputs on any of these devices, so there's no switching away from the correct inputs. All devices directly select inputs (method 2) in any case. I tried adding a switch to an unused TV input and then back to the correct HDMI input on the TV (once setting the wrong input at power off, once at power on) but still had consistency problems which were then compounded by other chokes down the HDMI line.
I've tried various delays for the various delay fields, but in my setup I'm not changing inputs ever, so I'm not sure the power-on delay will have an effect, right?

The Troubleshoot is a basic part of the Harmony setup system; the idea is that when the Help button gives a temporary fix you run the Troubleshoot to get a permanent fix and update that to the remote.
As you use only the one input on the TV you do not need the Harmony to send it any Input command, so at Method 2 you should reduce the list of input names to one entry, and assign to that the command "none", and the Power-On Delay will not be relevant.

The troubleshooting is meant to pinpoint a problem with the remote codes and such. I have a problem with the equipment here. I was hoping someone would be able to give me a magic formula for success, but apparently not. I'll have to do some bigger trial and error testing with things on my own to figure out where my HDMI signal is sometimes failing out. Oh well.

The principle is that Harmonys can do what the original remotes, or maybe just a little more.
The thing to do is to find out how to resolve the problem with the original remotes, then apply it to the Harmony.
