1 Get details about your system

You will need to collect your devices’ manufacturer and model numbers before you start.

  1. Find the model numbers on the front, back or bottom of each device in your entertainment system.
  2. Write down the information in the table provided on (Device type, Manufacturer, Model number).
  3. Take note of how your devices are connected together. For example, your DVD player is plugged into Video 1 on your TV etc. For more help, see What are Inputs.
Device Manufacturer Model number

What are inputs… and why do I need to know about them?
Inputs are how your devices are connected. For example, if your DVD player is connected to your TV using Video 1 input, you would need to select Video 1 when setting up your Watch a DVD Activity in the MyHarmony software.
Once you set up Activities on your remote, one touch of an Activity button will power on and set the inputs on all the devices needed for that Activity.
