There are people on digital spy who have bought one of these from the pound shop and are happy with it, they say the Harmony is a rip off. Haven't tried it myself mind, we have the Lidl one, but thats what I've read.

+1 on that, Harmony remotes rock!

To elaborate the Harmony uses "activities" so for instance "Watch Blu-Ray" will turn on my TV, AV Receiver & Blu-Ray player. Then if I press "Play Xbox 360" it will turn the BR player off, turn the 360 on & change AV Receiver inputs.

Bet the cheapo can't do all that each with one button press/screen touch.

I believe Harmony remotes start at around £30 although I haven't bought one for a couple of years!

They are also many many times more expensive sadly.
I will hold out hope of many functions however, this line is particularly inspiring:
"Features include all-off function, MACRO function for programmable button sequences and much more"

Hot deal for the price, isnt the Harmony £30?

got my harmony 515 from play for 19.95, very happy and would not use anything else, so easy to configure. and great quality and support.

Some harmony remotes can be a rip off.

I think the basic harmony 300 remote is £17.99 on play.com at the moment.

I bought one of these a few weeks back... Yes it will learn all your remote actions (mostly by using the learn function ... which takes ages to do a whole remote).

Not using it anymore though, has major flaws:

1. No separate colour buttons (red, blue, green, yellow), they are linked to the play, pause, record etc buttons. No good for PVR's / Virgin boxes.

2. You have to point quite precisely as the range doesn't seem very good.

3. No "i" button.

4. The rubber keys can and do stay stuck down when they catch the casing.

Agree with a previous comment, has to be a Logitech Harmony remote FTW!

I have used my Logitech Harmony One for SkyHD as well as all my other AV bits for over 2 years now.

So cheap = HOT even if its cr*p and a complete waste of £6?

Often you get what you pay for and in his instance £6 does not get you very much in th way of "working" IR remote.

PS3 has a Bluetooth remote so the simple answer is NO.

In fact the description of "brilliant" does not apply to this LIDL remote at all. My advice would be keep the £6 in your pocket.

Without getting into a harmonious debate, my CD and telly remote are missing and cream crackered respectfuly... I take it the learning feature needs this remotes to learn from? Or am I wrong? I do hope so!

Lidl seem to sell the same old junk every year. I got one of these last year & gave up on it, after it would not control the TV properly. A UNIVERSAL remote needs to be just that, without unreasonable messing around to set it up.
Ideally we want something that can be plugged into the PC & set up from a web based interface to handle ALL remote controlled infra red appliances sold in the last 20 years (my CD player has lasted that long).

It's true, Harmony remotes really are worth the extra, I have an ancient 688 model and it can quite literally be programmed to operate up to 12 of almost any device made - the latest device I added to it was the Sumvision Cyclone micro2 and ditched the awful remote that comes with it.

Not true, my Harmony will not function a Daewoo Air Con Unit, despite Harmony saying that it will.

It needs to have the original remote to function, which is broken, what use is that ?

I have the basic entry model Harmony 300. Dont want to rain on anyones parade but its not all that its cracked up to be.

Yes its easy to programme and the learn function is a great feature, all in a simple and elegant intuitive interface, this all means nothing when one physical keypress = 2 or 3 and sometimes 4 in some cases.

For example, I've used this remote to control my LG550 Blu ray player, at the menu screen, if I press the right key to goto the next menu item it jogs to the 3rd item instead. From what I've read, the signal being sent is wrong, unfortunately on this model the signal cannot be tweaked or changed.

Avoid this model even though I did buy it for a tenner. Unless im missing something??
#23
Well i just went i bought 1 of these as my sony amp remote is falling apart and only stuck together with tape lol....

Wasn't expecting much for £6 but it doing it's job well no signal problems from other side of the room and it's working my Sky HD box aswell (although i had to input 3 buttons from key input function from original sky remote "Record / Backup and TV Guide)

Automatic volume input is set to my amp no matter what device is selected....

I'm pretty happy with my purchase and £6 is a bargin....

Sky HD Code working for me is #52 04 (tv guide set to menu button, backup set to the mute button and record function set to PIP as i'd never use these apart from menu wgich is set to what is should be anyways)

I bought a Harmony 515 from a thread on here, when they were £18 or £19.

I use the congruity app under Linux, which allows me to use the web-based programming service in exactly the same way as the Windows/Mac-only application Logitech provides. Shamefully they shun this brilliant piece of software.

Anyway, it's a good concept but unfortunately it stumbles badly on a fundamental problem with some pieces of equipment: they only have "relative" commands, such as on/off button or next/previous source, rather than absolute commands, such as power on, power off, source 1, source 2, source 3, etc. This means that the remote control can get out of sync with what it's controlling, leading to messy "did this fix the problem?" manual intervention. It can get out of sync if a command is not received due to the control being pointed in the wrong direction, or if devices are switched off between different activities being selected. I don't leave in particular my amplifier in standby all the time, so it doesn't remember what state it was in after supposedly being powered off. As far as I can see, there's no way to tell the remote control that power off should reset it to the initial state.
