So i got my new mac mini and harmony remote today and i have a couple of questions.

I have setup the harmony one as plex media center on devices in harmony software.

1. I can only change volume inside xbmc when im in the menus, as soon as i start watching something i cant change the volume but mute still works.

2. I have changed the settings inside xbmc so that powertoggle means suspend. But how do i power the mac mini off/on

3. After i booted up xbmc now, i have this problem that if i press a button, the volume bar from osx is shown, and up/down/back/(any button) doesnt work, it just shows the volume overlay from osx ontop of xbmc

TV: UE55F8005
XBMC: Mac mini 2012 with windows 8.1
SOUND: Sonos playbar + Sonos Sub + 2x Rear Play: 3

Hi,
One more thing. Make sure XBMC is powered on last in activity. And insert 1.5-2 second delay between XBMC and the previous device. First device should be your tv. That will ensure your screen is on when XBMC kicks in.

TV: LG 42PW450 3D
Soundbar: LG NB352OA
HTPC: Apple Mac mini MC815LL/A 2.3GHz i5
Remote: Logitech Harmony 600
Remote: XBMC Constellation
