I found this 21 pages long thread on Logitech site.

Quote:Well, I can only say that my previous logitech remote (Harmony 680) didn't have any speed issues... It performed just like the originals but my harmony one simply responds a lot slower. You really have to wait when going through channels or lists, skipping forward or back in videos or dvds, etc.
Quote:I have 2 Harmony One's and a 900, and I haven't noticed any problems with delays.
Quote:I've had many Harmony remotes - the 688, 880, and now the One. All of them perform sluggishly like this, with every device I have, and I have a lot of them.
kind of... disappointing.
I'd like to see any whitelist, who has Harmony (and which model) with no buffering issues?

How do you make it shutdown and power on your computer when you press "All Off" or change an activity?
I have a a HP 5188-1667 for a receiver. Thanks.

Hi, I have been using the HP receiver with the Harmony One for about a week and after doing some tweaking to the delays I can't seem to solve a problem where quite frequently it will input a remote command twice, in quick succession, maybe every 3-4 button presses I make. It is quite annoying and was wondering if anyone has an effective means for dealing with this, and/or can provide me their delay settings. I am using MCE Keyboard and Media Center SE (for the Windows + 1 shortcut), if it matters.

I had the exact same problem. I lowered the keyboard repeat rate in WIndows, and that fixed it up nicely. I believe the Harmony delay is the second-lowest.

I've been screwing around with the inter-key delay from 100 MS to 500 MS, but I have a feeling my issue isn't necessarily related to it. Thanks for the tip, I'll try that when I fire up my HTPC in a bit. Sounds like it will fix my problem.
What is your inter-key delay at, 200 MS? Lowest I think is 100. You haven't messed with the other delays right? Don't think they matter.

Troubleshooting, "Media Center PC responds to some commands either too many times or only occasionally."
0-5 available, I have mine set to 1. I haven't changed any Millisecond settings.
On Keyboard Settings, Repeat Delay is second-shortest. Repeat Rate is about 1.4 of the way between Slow and Fast.

Thanks, didn't even know about that first setting you mention. I'll apply all those changes when I get home on Monday and report back.

I have an odd problem. I've read through all the posts in this thread and have not seen it mentioned elsewhere.
Occasionally my remote will send a command and not stop sending it. eg. I'll use the number button to skip down to a letter within XBMC then i find the whole app stops responding to my commands. When i exit it back to windows i find the '0' button or 't' or '#' (or others) are being repeated. If i open up notepad the letter or number continues to fill the screen. The only way i've found to stop it is to reboot the computer.
I have the cheap $10 remote that came with my IR Receiver and it works fine 100% of the time so i dont think it's the OS (it doesn't have backlit keys so i want to use the harmony). I have all keyboards turned off when it happens, so i'm sure it's coming from my remote. I've upgraded to the latest firmware and wiped the remote a bunch of times. I cannot find the reason for this.
The problem only happens occasionally (once or twice a night), and it can be kicked off by different buttons. Funnily enough through those buttons work at other times.
