    Hi Brent3493

    Thank you for writing to us with your concern!

    I can understand that you're experiencing an issue while trying to switch from Smartcast input to HDMI 1. We regret the inconvenience caused to you!

    On checking, it looks like its an common issue with the Vizio TV and as a workaround, I'd request you to try adding the following commands  in the Activity End Sequence of Smart Cast Activity:

    Input > Direction Right > Direction Right > OK

    Can you try the above and let me know whether it works as expected? 

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

    Best regards,
    Ralph

    What I did to fix that problem was to write a script in the FIX BUTTONS/ACTIVITIES dialog. I figured out that from Smartcast, it was 6 input button pushes to get to HDMI-3, where my cable box is plugged in. So the script just has 6 identical entries in the sequence: Vizio TV - Input, and then I dragged that sequence to the RED button, and then synced the remote. Now, instead of having to press "input" in the device menu 6 times, the RED button does the shortcut in about 2 seconds.

    Vizio TVs dont have a direct input button, and the Harmony command "HDMI-#" doesn't work, instead they have a cycle through input choices button, and it's a hassle. 

    I believe the sequence has to be built using the desktop version of Harmony when using a Harmony remote, but can be done with an app for the Hub.

    Thank you for writing back to me!

    I'm glad to know that you have fixed the issue by creating a button sequence with the TV input command to switch the input from SmartCast. I'd appreciate the time you've taken in letting us know!

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns in the future. 

    Best regards,

    Not sure what you're saying here. There is no drag and drop that I can find in the desktop version of the Harmony set up app.
