Using Logitech Harmony 300 with Acer C20 DLP Beamer/Projector

As the original remote control provided by ACER for the ACER C20 Pico Projector, is only sold in a set with a mini tripod and an iPhone adapter, I've tried to use my Logitech Harmony 300 at first without success. 
There is a ACER C20 profile in the Logitech database, but the projector is not responding to any command. 

The FIX is:
Download the Acer K11 profile (which is a quite similar device) an change some of the commands!
Do not forget to SYNC the remote control!

Enter - OK (Enter)
Next Source - Info - (Auto search source)

Now I have a fine working remote for the ACER C20!
