I want to control my Apple TV using my Logitech Harmony Remote Control. I followed several posts on this forum, but my problem was that with any of the methods described I was unable to power off the Apple TV.

I found the solution on danwassink's page http://www.livingwithmac.com/apple-tv-and-harmony-remote

As a new device I had to add a music player / digital music server and chose Apple as vendor iPod as model. This allowed me to control the Apple TV, but still without picture. I then created an activity "Watch Apple TV", added my TV using the option "I want to add more control of options and devices for this Activity". Currently, my activity settings read as follows:
- Apple Digital Music Server is on
- Pioneer AV Receiver is on
- Pioneer TV is on
- All other devices are off
- Digital Music Server is set to "iPod"
- AV Receiver is set to "CD"
- TV is set to "Input 3"

When I finished the setup, I was able to control the Apple TV - including powering it on and off. All I needed to make it perfect was to teach the Harmony remote the IR codes for the central up/down/left/right/ok - Buttons.

Thank you Dan!
