I have one and like it. My parents are struggling with new remotes after finally upgrading everything for HD. I told them they need this remote, but that they're going to have to wait until I can come home to set it up for them. I wouldn't dream of subjecting my parents to the special hell that is setting this thing up.
My Harmony 880 is having issues (buttons no longer work, battery issues). This a good replacement?
I'm absolutely dreading this process. Ugh. Seriously, has anyone done some sort of open source project that is more intuitive to use than what Logitech provides? I'm going to be ripping my hair out again!
I figured with all the discussions going on about GoogleTV it could be a fun time to find out what the Gdgt community is doing in the terms of HTPC. Hardware: Windows 7 32bit machine with 4GB of Ram, 1TB Drive and an ATI HD4350 video card doing video & audio out over HDMI. Software: XBMC with the Alaska Revisited skin I control it via my Harmony remote that is working together with Eventghost to properly map the buttons. I'm hoping the HDHomeRun CableCard tuner comes out soon because...
I'm not sure if this is permanent but the Harmony One is 149.99 at Amazon.com and BestBuy.com (and in-store)! As of Sunday 11/22/09
Which do people prefer? I had the harmony 525 before this and I personally preferred nice solid buttons, sure the touch screens look nice but its so easy to slide your finger across and muck up your setup. I would of stuck with the 525 but it crashed and never came back on.
I'm trying to figure out, is the number pad actually usable? As when I look at this remote, it looks all aerodynamic and comfy to hold - all except the 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 + 0 E so what would you say?
