Plex, the fantastic media center software I’ve written about before , added some icing on the cake recently: out-of-the-box support for Logitech Harmony universal remotes. Logitech Harmony remotes are great because Logitech maintains a massive database of all the codes for pretty much every consumer electronics device ever made (the Harmony 550 was my pick for the best gadget gift under $100 ). You (usually) don’t have to sit there “training” the Harmony with your original remotes — you just hook it up to your computer, type in the model numbers of your TV, receiver, game console, etc, and you’re off. It vastly improves (and simplifies) control of your home entertainment center. However, while Logitech did have remote codes for the Mac Mini (which is what I’m using to run Plex), the six buttons of the Apple remote aren’t enough to control a full-featured software suite like Plex.
I've received many requests for the high-res channel icons I put together for my new One. After years of lurking on AV and remote forums I thought it about time I paid back all the knowledge I've picked up from all the other forum members, so I've put together the icon collection on my site for everyone to download and use. The URL in my signature below will link you to the new searchable database of all the Harmony 'Favorites' icons I have created. The batch has grown from the few dozen I had on my own Harmony One to over 10,000 icons based on requests I've received from over two dozen countries. I've also expanded the site to include my icons for the Harmony One*, 650/700, 8xx, 900*, 1000, and 1100 remotes.
For the first time since launching the site, we're now hosting Activity Icons for the new Harmony Touch remote. I'll be spending extra time on the activity icons so any donations are much appreciated. Email or follow us on twitter & facebook for current updates or to make icon requests. As always, all icons are available free of charge. If you find they add value to your remote then please feel free to drop me a donation to cover web hosting & caffeine costs. Enjoy your remote!
From Plex Note: These instructions were written with a Logitech Harmony 525 remote in mind. If you have a different model, then you may need to deviate slightly. Step 1 - Setting up the remote

Wow, that was quick! I was just about to ask about the F keys. By default are all 12 of them empty? I've got a few more things I'd like to add, like going straight to TV Shows, Movies, etc.

Here are my issues: 1) I cannot, for the life of me, have the "prev" button perform the same as the "back" button that shows up in the LCD as a soft-button 2) Similarly, I can't find how to add new functions or buttons to the 'soft buttons' that show up after I select the activity I want.
Je me permet d'ouvrir ce topic pour regrouper les infos de plex, effectivement le topic "XBMC sur Mac" parle beaucoup plus de plex que de XBMC, il faut donc remettre les choses a leur place
For the last couple of weeks, I have been looking for a solution to run EyeTV and Plex together on my mini -- without a software layer on top; like for instance Remote Buddy or Mira. I also did not want to launch EyeTV from within Plex, since the infared signals sent from the remote would not apply to EyeTV (unless I changed device on the remote). I read this thread: http://forums.plexapp.com/index.php?
