The Remotes delay settings are set in the software


However, with the 600/650/700 the Power and Interdevice delays have been 
moved to the remote itself

Yes that's Harmony's default, mine (Harmony One) has been changed to be 
almost as fast as the original remotes. I'm sorry to say it was so long ago 
I can't remember how I did it, something to do with intercode delays I think 
but I can't remember where to find the setting.

Sometimes just knowing something can be done is enough to help find the 
solution, hopefully this is the case for you.
