Woah deal

&%$$flaps! Bought one of these a week ago for £30. Oh well.

Great remote and there's very little incentive for one of the higher up models. All you really gain is better screens (not that you even use it that much) and eventually touchscreen. I personally think it's better to keep it simple and this remote does that perfectly.

Wasn't this down to £17.99 a few weeks ago?

Yes, but previous deal was valid for one-day only.

Good deal :thumbsup: (although I got it for ~£18 a few weeks ago).

Works well, easy enough to set up, even with old kit.

If
I were pushed to criticise it I'd say that:
[LIST]
[*] some of the buttons are a bit 'clicky' for quiet rooms;
[*] the button positions aren't quite as intuitive as I'd like;
[/LIST]

I rather spend extra £5 for the 525 at richersounds.

the 515 can control upto 5 devices, the 525 can control upto 10.

Great stuff. Been wanting one for ages. Cant wait to be able to switch to XBMC films folder and with the correct amp settings from watching TV with one click.

Thanks

Other than the device count it can control the units are identical.

Almost, they are different in colour and the 525 has a blue LCD whereas the 515 has a green screen.

Got this from them for £17 last time it was on offer. Great for the money.
#15
anyone know if this will work with a WDTV?
#16
Also got this for £17 the last time - good little device but im damned if i can get it to switch inputs on my Toshiba Regza TV! Which pretty much defeats the purpose

if the toshiba remote can do it.. then im pretty sure you can train your harmony to do the same.

Most have the learning ability.

Great deal for this remote.. however I would certainly pick the 525 @ Richersounds over this one :)

I bought a Harmony One for the wife, so she could switch between audio input - dvd + TV - BluRay + TV - full home cinema - sky - vanilla TV etc with just one "click" (and not messing up any settings !! ).
She still can't work out how to use it, bless her :roll:

can any universal remotes control your PS3 and 360 yet?
#21
I was lucky enough to get one of these in the £17.99 deal and it's a little piece of magic, I no longer have a girlfriend moaning about the number of remotes in the front room!
For the record, this is definitely a learning remote.

Got one of these on the £17 one day only play offer. I haven’t looked back. Would still pay £24.99 for one though so the deal is hot

The device will switch on my TV, my sky box, set my TV to the right source for the sky box, turn on the surround sound and switch the surround sound to the correct output by two bottom presses. (Activities to list the activities I've created, then "Watch TV")

If you not good with technology of computers then maybe this isn’t for you-not that it is that hard to set up - Logitech support is excellent but expect to take a little bit of time to set it up. My setup was an awkward one, particularly as the TV takes more than 12 seconds to come out of standby so I had to set a delay to the commands.

Be aware though that if you create an activity i.e. play Wii or PS3 and you select them as a device (even though the remote cant operate them as they are wifi/bluetooth) it will still use one number of devices the remote is allowed. The trick is to create custom activities that you define which sources your TV should switch to etc, then you can rename the activity to what you like i.e. "play the Wii" - it does the same thing but doesn’t take up a device.

Build quality is good, although the buttons could have abetter feel to them but for the price and function it performs it is great value.

Thanks chief.
#24
These are very good for the money. The simple setup works, but then the software has a lot of 'depth' to it to fine-tune actions. Got it working for normal TV, watching DVDs on PS3, and using PlayTV on PS3.

Only problem is it doesn't switch off my Philips TV. It turns it on but not off, which is odd as they're the same signal.
#25
Looks good, but does anyone know if this can control a BT vision box without having to teach it every key individually...

Have 2 replacement remotes,neither of which seem capable,and given the functions on the vision remote... i really don't want to have to teach it...

thanks for any help with this :)
#26
NIce find. i need something so that Mrs S can switch the TV, sound system to the correct settings to play her Wii without getting me in, after the telly has been running Freeview or my PS3. Come to think of it, it'll save me getting off my fat butt to switch it back again. Sweet.

Thanks for the info on differences between this and 525. So, is this fully compatible with Sky Plus?

This one will control the PS3 with an adapter which wirelessly connects to the PS3 providing an infared receiver.

Anything it doesnt have registered can be learned by the remote anyway, as long as you have the original remote to program it from. The newly learned commands are then displayed in the lcd panel and assigned the button next to the name/description that you have given them.

Yes compatable with sky plus-and i would def re-buy if nec at this price too-i got the one day only price at play last time.heat from me!

Use the remotes you have, these are the worst invention ever. A fool and his money are easy parted...:whistling:
#31
Remember that when totalling up your devices, your tv counts as a device. I'm considering the 525 for this reason.
#32
Not sure if this has been mentioned but I have this remote and it is a good remote but one little thing that bugs me is a slight delay in response when pressing buttons. Just a bit annoying when trying to scroll epg's!

Still hot deal though.

Yes it does, I have mine set up on this and the remote is far better than the cheap one you get as standard with the wdtv, you can key in the data of all your hardware on the logitech website to check compatibility.

I got one of these last week and it's an absolute doddle to set up. Everything can be configured on your pc and loaded onto the remote via usb, if there are any issues you can tweak settings and re-assign buttons as needed.

It really has made using the home cinema a joy. with one click presses to turn on/off the relevant hardware, switch tv channel and set the volume controls etc.

I do have one grumble as I can't find the button that makes the wife shut up but that's a niggle that I can put up with for the moment.

Yes - very helpful when the in-laws come over to baby sit and you have to explain how to power up the home cinema, TV and sky box so they can watch a film using 3 remotes!

This has certainly added value in my household.

One of the main advantages of a remote like this over having separate remotes is being able to set up activities, so with one button press you can, for example, turn on your TV, set it to the correct input, turn on your cable box, turn on your surround sound receiver and set that to the correct input. Then if you want to play a game on your 360, one button press will turn the 360 on, the cable box off, and select the correct inputs on the TV and receiver again.

If you've got 4 or 5 remotes and you're having to use different ones to do different things, then spending a few quid on one of these is a good investment.

I can also confirm that it works with the WD TV. It's selectable from the list of devices, although I had to manually configure a couple of the buttons (the back button being one of them). It's dead easy to do though.

Could you use 2 of these without them interfering with each other? I have 2 x Xbox 360s and 2 x HDTVs, one lot downstairs and one lot upstairs. I don't want to buy another of these remotes to use with my upstairs gear if it's gonna turn on the 360 downstairs as well.

Go into the more advanced settings for your device in the logitech software, and there is a setting called "Inter-Key Delay". Just reduce this number to 0ms. Simples :) My harmony is now more responsive than my original remote which had a slight delay.

Over engineered. What a pain in the ass to set this thing up. Wish we has not bothered and stuck with our old one :(
