This review is from: Logitech Harmony 300i Infrared Universal Remote - 3rd party
Pros: Seems new
Good build quality
Uses regular double A batteries
Can assign buttons to various fucntions of device
Wife/ Kid friendly
Cons: Only one macro button (watch TV)
Other Thoughts: I have a relativity advanced HT setup, I have:
WD Live TV
FIOS Motorola Cable Box
with the watch TV button the remote powers on my TV, AVR and Cable box..it switches to correct input on TV and AVR and controls volume thru AVR...
The downside is if you want to say watch the wd tv or a bluray player you would need to do that manually on remote (i.e. change AVR input, turn on device, etc)
the other cheapest harmony i saw was $40 which had more activity buttons...however...you need to consider how often you actually use those other activities, for me, its not very often so this essentially 'disposable' remote is awesome...bought 3!!!
This review is from: WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN
Pros: I'm using this with a WHS server and using MakeMKV to convert by BluRay and DVD collection onto my server...Could not be happier with results..the videos look great and it even does Dolby True HD!!performance is great with no hiccups
Cons: The GUI interface is kinda amateur although I don't know what kind of technical challenged they face..would love to see a Media browser type interface..
Set up did require a bit of research as it did not work out of box on my network...had to change the IP address...
Other Thoughts: One of the other good things about this little box is the great community around it and being able to find tons of info when troubleshooting...the couple negative reviews I saw are really off base as they seem to have encountered issues which could have been easily fixed with some research..
make though mistake, this is an enthusiast device not some roku or boxee with limited use...
