Caution when changing computers
21 September 2009
Excerpt: If you change computers, the Harmony software will have to be reloaded. There are problems with this, as the software no longer recognizes your id and password. In addition, the remote forgets some buttons, and there is one function that is an extremely difficult problem. I still cannot get it to turn my Directv HD receiver on or off. And now, Harmony wants to charge me $29.95 to talk to them.
Pros: Most commands work.
Cons: The remote does not work if you have to make any changes.
Excerpt: The harmony remote is in a class by itself. It's smart, remembers what devices are powered on, knows the difference between hitting "video4" for the four device, or by hitting "input/channel" then "input select" 4 times to get there. It is programed by USB, logitech has a huge database, and can be "learned" for the rare device that isn't in their database.
Pros: does everything. remote and learning user friendly
Cons: software designed for idiots and guaranteed to cause carpel tunnel syndrome.
