Harmony Tips and Tricks: Creating Favorite Channels on the Harmony 300

Logitech recently launched the Logitech Harmony 300 Remote, which is customized using our new myharmony.com online website. The Harmony 300 is a 4 device (TV, Cable/Sat, DVD, VCR/Aux) remote that is simple to set up, yet powerful enough to customize to your needs. One advanced customization that can be done is setting up the Harmony 300 to select up to five of your favorite channels with the push of a single button.

Most of us have a few channels that we are constantly watching, be it CNN, ESPN, HBO or one of the other major broadcasting networks. None of us want to consistently push in the same three or four numbers time and time again. This is where the Harmony 300 can make things easier by allowing you to come back to the site and add in up to a seven number channel, including a dot (.) or dash (-) for Over-the-Air HD channels.

Creating Favorite Channels on the Harmony 300
To set up favorite channels on your Harmony 300:

  1. From the home page, click ‘Add Favorite Channels’ and select the device you wish to set up favorite channels for.
  2. Enter your favorite channel in the corresponding entry field.
  3. When you’ve finished entering your favorite channels, click ‘Save’, and then ‘SYNC REMOTE’.

The ability to make the Harmony 300 work the way you wish is just a quick trip back to the myharmony.com software where you can customize the Watch TV button, allow a third device such as an AV Receiver to control the volume, or set up up your favorite channels.
