Using Harmony One, I cannot finish program the Panasonic: The Harmony software asks for me to press the InputNext button, which does not seem to exist. There is an Input button at the top of the Panasonic remote, but that does not seem to be the correct button, as the Logitech software stops if I press that Panasonic button. Brilliant question: After pushing the Panasonic Blue and Pop-Up menu buttons, which are recognized by Logitech, which button do I push to send the InputNext button command from the Panasonic remote to the Harmony One?

After posting my first message, I tried telling Logitech that I did not have the original remote; all that happened was that I was returned to the page that asked if I had/did not have the original remote. (I got the idea of trying that from a search of this forum.)
So, while I appreciate your assistance, unfortunately that does not seem to work for me; rather frustrating, but I'll try this again anyway; perhaps it will work better after May Day.
A short while later: I tried five times telling the Logiitech software that I do not have the remote for the Panasonic; each time, I get returned to the device setup page, rather than being taken to the pages where one might be able to program the Harmony One.

I've use harmony with several panasonic players including yours, so it can be made to work. Hang in there. All panasonics use the same codes, so try this. Delete your 220 device entirely. Now add the 'DMP-BDT110" and answer no when it asks if you have the remote. I think answering yes the first time got you in a catch 22. That should do the trick.
I say use the 110 because it has the same codes as the 220, but they are all known to be good. The 220 codes newly added to the logitech database may still have issues, like the one you've already discovered. This is quite common for new devices. So the older codes tend to be more reliable. The logitech database is built mostly from user learns, and those users don't always do a good job. Takes a while to flush all the errors out.

A small bit of progress. I don't know how many steps I went through, but early on, after selecting the -110, Harmony said it was similar to a DVD-K45, so I proceeded. After reprogramming the remote, I found that it would turn on the DVD/Receiver/TV, but that none of the buttons worked; for example, Eject does not open the disc tray.
I'll get back to this after a while, let you know what happens.
(At least, while watiing for a very pleasant Panasonic representative to find out where the DVD's MAC was, I stumbled upon it, so entered that into my router, and was able to connect to the Internet.)

I believe that I have found the secret: Out of curiosity, I programmed a few of the buttons using the "Learn Infrared" command (I htink that is what it says.)
I got those few buttons to work, such as having the Eject button open and close the tray. I think I may go back to the -220 Harmony software, see if I can program the buttons properly that way, rather than using the automated method which keeps asking for the unknown button.

You must not be entering the model number properly. DVD - Panasonic - "DMP-BDT110" is an exact match and has all the commands. If you answer "no - I do not have the original remote", you won't have to confirm or learn any IR commands. Just pick Done and it will work. I just tried it myself and it worked perfectly. There is no need to learn or program any buttons. They're already there. Otherwise you are just digging a deeper hole.

No, that will never work. Why not? Simple: It was entirely too easy! (I'm quite certain that I overlooked the Done command, alas.)
That the reprogramming process failed at the 90% mark, and I had to reboot the computer to get things to work again, is, well, whatever it is it is. That I then forgot that I had not added the activities for DVD and CD use is also whatever it is that it is.
There are some buttons missing, such as the Internet button. I pressed that on the Panasonic remote, which, as I'd enabled Internet connections, took me to a firmware update. No return nor exit buttons, I don't believe, but I'm sure I can now add anything in the way of buttons that need sewing on.
Thanks for your assistance; it was and is greatly appreciated.
