Check your Harmony config to make sure that the POWER is turned on/off for the VIP2262. I configured a Harmony for a VIP1216 at a relative's place and I think the POWER on/off worked. VIP2262 and VIP1216 should be have identical remote codes.
They previously had a Shaw cable PVR and I had to disable the power on/off function in the Harmony setup since the PVR wouldn't power off if a recording was in progress and would therefore get out of sync. That's how I know the option exists.
