After rebooting the computer, the Logitech software will need to be opened and the Harmony reconnected to the computer. The connection is verified and the configuration of the device may continue. The software checks to see if a wireless extender will be used with the remote, for this review it will not. The final item on part 2 of the configuration gives you the option of renaming the device and gives another opportunity to add a wireless range extender.
Finally we get through the initial phase of the setup of this device and move into the meat and potatoes of the setup. Setting up the rooms that have controllable devices will be the first thing to do in this section. For the next part of the setup, you will need to know the make and model number of all the devices that you wish to control with the Harmony. You are given options on what devices you want to add to the rooms you have set up. When it comes to adding your home entertainment devices, Logitech's online database is pretty extensive.
Once you have chosen the manufacturer of the devices you want to control, you will need to input the model numbers for those devices. For this example, I will use the television, surround sound and DVD player. If you have two Harmony remotes, you will want to choose which of them you want to control the devices you have chosen to control with each one. Since I am only using the one, that is the choice for this review.
Now that all the devices are added into the Harmony software, it is time to confirm the device make and model number before moving to the next step. This completes the device setup portion of the software.
