    I can't set the remote type in Plex settings with Sofa Control enabled, so changing the keymapping doesn't matter.
    And when Sofa Control is enabled, I can't use the Harmony custom LCD buttons correctly.
    What to do?!

    I setup my Mac Mini as a Media PC and the Plex Player as a Media PC. I made Plex as an Activity.
    I have Sofa Control, Plex, Hulu Desktop (prefer it over the web version), and EyeTV on my Mac.
    I'm trying to put shortcuts on the Harmony LCD to iTunes playlists, video plugins, and the weather menu.
    But I need an easy way to launch and switch to my most used apps on my Mac (possibly Plex's apps/games menu).
    I also need a way to re-lauch crashed apps like when Plex freezes using the Harmony 520.
    And it needs to be relatively easy for my girlfriend and our friends.

    Just removed Sofa Control.
    I can use the Harmony Play btton to re-launch Plex
    and Plex to open my Apps like Hulu Desktop.

    Oh well.
    Sofa Control was fun while it lasted.

    Yea I was going to say, I have a harmony 520, mac mini running plex and everything works perfect. Sofa control was probably the issue.
