The problem is I use the help function until it fixes the problem. From there it is supposed to remember that correct? the only thing is it doesnt remember.
Not quite D-Train
The Help function just gets things back in sync, in case a command wasn't picked up by a piece of gear or kids run out in front of the IR whilst it's setting up and activity, or somebody has used an original remote to switch something. By using the Help function, the activity is back in sync, so when you change activities it knows what equipment is on and using which inputs.
If I understand your problems correctly, by using the Help function it fixes the issue, then it sounds like you need to tweak the inter device delays in your setup D-Train. Sounds like all the commands are mapped correctly, but when you start/change activities, the remote fires off too many commands too close to each other for all the devices and it doesn't leave a big enough gap that some commands get missed. You can increase the delay between commands so it gives each bit of gear enough time to recieve the command, action it and be ready for the next one.
If for example the TV doesn't always go to the right input, but by using the Help function this fixes it, then go to your TV in the harmony setup on your PC,
click troubleshoot on the TV device
select TV doesn't seem to recieve every command correctly
select when commands are sent one after another, the device recieve some commands but not others
you can then increase the delays
