You might not - but you might... sometimes the default software picks
the power toggle and not POWER ON, which are different.  This is why it
took me 3 hours to get the Harmony programmed just right, and the fine
control the windows software has over the web interface (which for the
300 barely lets you do anything)... Hopefully you do and you can just
change the commands around and have something that is "smarter" than
just a universal remote.
