    Anyone know if the Co-Star has discrete power commands that can be programmed into a Harmony remote? I know the original Co-Star remote only has a power toggle button but lots of devices that only have a power toggle button also have discrete power commands.

    The Co-Star is giving my TV fits. When I power up the TV and go to a different input than the Co-Star, something is happening with the Co-Star that is telling my TV to change the input back to the Co-Star. So then I have to manually change the input. It's annoying. So I'd like to send a discrete power commands to the co-star to prevent this from happening.

    You should be able to turn off HDMI-CEC on the CoStar or the TV to get that sort of thing to stop happening.

    Yep, I tried turning the CEC off on the co-star after starting this thread and that did the trick.

    Turning CEC off on my TV wasn't an option for me because on Samsung TV's turning CEC off disables the ARC and I need ARC.
