Best remote ever made 09/22/2004
This review is from: Logitech Harmony 688 Universal Infrared Advanced Universal Remote (Black)
My best friend has one of these that he mainly got so his wife doesn't have to use 3+ remotes to watch DVDs, etc. I was with him when he programmed it on the website and used it for a while. It is the most amazing remote I have ever seen. Nothing else comes close. You plug the remote into your PC with a supplied USB cable, use a web page to tell it exactly what brand/model/etc of A/V compenents you have, then you tell it things like - what A/V input on your TV do you watch DVDs on, etc. After you are done with all those steps, the software downloads the settings into the remote and you just press one button to do things like - watch a DVD. The remote will turn on your Reciever, TV and DVD player, set the correct settings on the TV and receiver, etc.
The 688 model is mainly for people who have a DVR like Tivo. The other models won't control a DVR, as far as I know.
If you have more than 2 A/V components, I highly recommend it. It is future proof too. They <font>u</font>pdate their website constantly with new components as they come on the market.
