Great Remote, works with Linux

Ross B., Newegg
5 January 2010
  • Summary: Did some research and found this remote was compatible with Congruity which you will need to program if you're running Linux. Simple, just install Congruity from source forge. Plug in the remote via usb, go to the harmony website and have at it.
  • Pros: Well built, extra batteries included, easy to program and extensive database. Works with Linux!!!!!!!!!!
  • Cons: Somewhat small volume keys, but nothing to loose a star over

What Jade Said

Jeannine H., Newegg
22 December 2009
  • Summary: I had a little trouble setting up one of my older components, but got great and immediate help at the Harmony forums. Their database of recognized components is enormous and even includes my 6 year old RCA DVD/VCR.
  • Pros: We also have a multi-remote setup and it was driving me crazy to have to get 2 or 3 remotes together to do something. Of course, at least one always seemed to have sprouted little feet and run off to hide. Hubby was unable to do anything except watch TV unless I was home. Of course, he claims tha...
  • Cons: Not a one so far.

great value

Jennifer M., Newegg
14 December 2009
  • Summary: This is a great remote for the price, even better if you get it on sale! I'd been wanting to replace my multi-remote setup for quite a while because my hubby was always too confused to remember how everything was hooked up, and which remote controlled what.
  • Pros: lightweight, programmable through computer, customizable
  • Cons: wizard software a little annoying, 5 item limit

Worth Every Penny

Edward S., Newegg
12 December 2009
  • Summary: My wife thought I was crazy spending close to $100 on a remote. Well, it didn't take long for that to change! Our set up is pretty complex: Onkyo SR876 (center for) Sony Bravio Scientific Atlantic HD Panasonic Blue Ray XBox 360 WII Sony CD/DVD Carousel Media Center PC with HDMI So, having a remote...
  • Pros: Programming on Logitech site is very easy. Control over multiple configurations and their order on screen.
  • Cons: Minor issue when first purchased. See below

Buy it

Matthew K., Newegg
3 June 2009
  • Summary: Always wondered why anyone would spend this much on a universal remote. Now I know.
  • Pros: Great looking, works with all of my devices, amazingly cool
  • Cons: The "wizard" interface used when setting the remote up on your pc is a little annoying. Very easy to use, just takes a bit of getting used to for the more advanced functionality to work properly. Program really needs a "copy and paste" for the advanced functions, setting up the "sound" button men...

  • Pros: simple layout backlit buttons
  • Cons: a bit expensive for a "universal remote" DVR list button should be a permanent button, not a "soft" button.

Only remote I need

Jonathan W., Newegg
29 May 2009
  • Summary: I had no problem programming this to control my Xbox 360, 5.1 surround, TV or cable DVR. It may take you a few tries to get all the settings just the way you want but it's worth it. I got my Dad one of these and it works with all of his stuff too.
  • Pros: It's the only remote I use now.
  • Cons: The defaults needed some tweaking... Surprise! If the remote has to go through a lot of steps to turn on an activity, sometimes it will miss one or two. This is fixed by simply hitting help once.

Outstanding

Michael H., Newegg
17 May 2009
  • Summary: The PS3 is controled only after I bought a NYCO IR converter and remote for $20.00 The only thing it won't do is turn on the unit. If you think about it you need to load a game or a movie anyway, so no big deal. It will however turn it off.
  • Pros: This is all you need to control an average household media center. I control an HDTV, Computer, DVR, DVD, A/V Reciever, Lights in the room, and yes a PS3. Set up is easy,easy,easy. And after a couple of weeks. when you wish a button was quickly available a Quick tweek and you can accomplish this ...
  • Cons: The only gripe I have is the volume and channel buttons are a little small and have no depth. This is a small gripe and for the most part I never have to look the remote is controled by feel.
