Programming a Logitech Harmony remote

The miniDSP Flex (DL) can be used with a Logitech®️ Harmony®️ remote. The same functions as the stock remote are programmed into the Harmony database. In addition, you can set up buttons for direct input source selection (instead of cycling through input sources).

The procedure is as described in the application note linked below, except that you should select "minidsp flex" as the device instead of "shd".

Android/iOS control app

miniDSP Android/iOS control app

With the addition of a miniDSP Wi-DG Wi-Fi to USB bridge, the miniDSP Flex (DL) can be remote-controlled from a phone or tablet running Android or iOS (iPhone/iPad).

For more information, see this application note:

If you're keen to just get started, here are the direct links to the app:

Note that currently the miniDSP Control App cannot be used over the Bluetooth connection. It will work only if a Wi-DG is connected to the USB port of the miniDSP Flex (DL).

Warning

If the USB port is being used for iOS/Android app control via the Wi-DG, it cannot be used for USB Audio streaming.
