J'ai acheté cette télécommande pour comme la plupart des gens pour opéré mon système cinéma maison le plus simplement possible sans à avoir 3 télécommandes entre les mains. Cette télécommande fait très bien le travail et peut l'avoir pour 74$ après avoir déniché un prix plus bas d'un concurant... Une fois programmée, c'est surprenant de voir que les boutons et les fonctions des menus sont tous et entièrement compatible avec les fonctions des télécommande substituées. Bravo Logitech!
The idea behind the Harmony remotes is awesome. Everything is controlled at the touch of a button. The Harmony remotes are activity-based, meaning you push one button (Watch TV, Watch a DVD, etc) and the remote configures everything for you.
In my case, when I press Watch a DVD, it turns on my TV, sets it to the Video input, turns on my receiver, sets that to the DVD input, and turns on the DVD player. That's 5 steps, which before would have been completed by pressing 5 different buttons on 3 different remotes. Harmony. And the remote is so configurable, I could add a sixth step to Watch a DVD -- automatically open the DVD tray.
After having gone through several remotes I finally bit the bullit and threw down the cash on this remote. From the time I took it out of the box to the time I was set-up and operating was around an hour. The remote works great. It has simple commands (ie Watch a DVD) and it will set-up all of your devices to do that specific task. I got rid of 7 remotes to this one. The only problems that I have encountered is that sometimes it will forget a certain command. It only takes a second to fix it. The other problem is more of a learning curve problem. Once the remote is in command of your system you will have to let it control your system. If it thinks a device is on and its off it will throw off the sequencing of the commands. Again easy to fix, just use the remote to control everthing all of the time. There is an interactive LCD that has a very robust help feature. Answer some yes or no questions and your settings will be fixed. I would rate this product at arouind a 8.5 out of 10. Highly recommended. Cudos Logitech for making my life easier.
I plugged this into my computer, setup all of my devices by exact Make/Model and also specified some activities. When I push one of the activity buttons (like "play a dvd"), it will turn on all devices needed and set them up correctly, and shut off any unneeded devices. One thing to watch out for is that if you manually change the power state of one of your devices (eg, tv) the remote will still think it is in the previous state, so unexpected things will happen. This is easy to correct though either manually, or using the integrated help. It will ask "is ... device on" and after you follow the prompts, everything should be the way you expect it to be (great for the less technically knowledgable).
I have upgraded to this remote from one of upscale One-4-All devices. What a difference!
Harmony makes me feel as if I was having one combined TV-CD-DVD-Radio device with recording capabilities. Actually, I have found out how to switch to CD mode thanks to Harmony. I could not record CD mode macro with my previous remote because it has run out of memory. No problem with Harmony :)
