I have a 811 and a 510 on the same TV. I want a harmony 659 to control so my wife will quit B!TC$in. If I program it to control 811 Via IR. Will the 510 respond or they have different IR codes?

I don't know about the 510, but the 301 and 811 do. I believe you can change the remotes address to get past that issue.

You CAN change the remote addresses ! I have done this and it works.Straight from the manual:

Because UHF signals travel long distances and go through walls, a
neighbor’s remote could control your receiver by mistake. To handle this
problem, you can change the address on the remote and receiver as follows:

1. Make sure you turn on the TV and receiver.

2. Open the Important System Information menu by
pressing the receiver’s front panel SYS INFO button.

3. The Important System Information menu shows a
Remote Address.

4. Press and hold the SAT mode button about three seconds, until
all the mode buttons light up, and then let go of the SAT button.

5. Use the number buttons to enter any number from 1 to 16, but
not the one you wrote in step 3. Write down the number you enter.

6. Press the POUND (#) button. If you entered the address correctly, the
SAT mode button flashes three times.

7. Press the RECORD button.

8. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the Important System
Information menu now is the same as the one you entered in step 5. If
the addresses are not the same, repeat step 7.

9. To check the address in the remote control, press and hold the SAT
mode button for three seconds. Then, let go of the SAT button, and
press the POUND (#) button twice. The SAT mode button flashes the
same number of times as the address you entered in step 5.
Press the SELECT button to close the Important System Information
menu.
