This isnt a specific XBMC question but hoping someine might know - I have the factory ATV2 remote, and am using a Harmony remote. The Harmony remote works fine, however the ATV2 remote is sending a signal to the ATV2 (little white light is flashing when a button is pressed), but the commands arent registering.

Has anyone else seen this and know how to fix?

You probably unpaired the remote. Check this link:

Isn't it the other way round? He likely paired the Harmony remote. You can only have one paired remote at a time. If you unpair the remote, then both should work, assuming that you want both to work. At least this is how I fixed the same situation with my ATV2 and Harmony remotes.

I have both my original AppleTV remote and my harmony remote working at the same time. I do remember something happening when it was one or the other, but I forget how I resolved it - I think it was dumb luck at the time.
