For those who think that the Harmony One is a little too expensive, the 555 is a great alternative for half the price.

Logitech Harmony 555 remote features a modern, slim design - complementing the sophisticated decor of today's most popular home-theater devices. The Harmony 555 has a stair-step shaped surface on the base of the remote that provide natural grips for fingers, making it easy to hold and physically navigate the remote with a single hand.

Good price, what does this model leave out, anyone got this and feel it's missing features or isn't it enough for their remote control needs!
#2
This is a better quality version of the 525. Far better made. I have one myself and it's great.
#3
I have this and the 885 and can't fault either of them. Highly recommended.
#4
Funny, I use to slate people that spend (what I considered to be huge amounts) on these Harmony remote controls..........until I bought the 785! Now I think they're bleeding marvelous and probably their biggest advocate!

Can this replace a sky+ remote along with tv and others?

yes! I have the 525, and I haven't found a device it can't control! mine was £25 but would still be great at £35; soo good to get rid of 6 controllers.

Bare in mind these remotes (or at least the 525) require connecting to the internet to set them up - if you dont have a net-enabled pc, forget it!

Yes:thumbsup:

Read the amazon reviews.

So whats the difference with this over the Harmony one then. I have tried learning remotes before and they have always seemed way too dificult to setup. I mean it needs to be really easy for me to be bothered...

I read some and only saw sky mentioned, not sky+. Thanks for clearing that up. Repped.

Thank you for that. I'm now tempted....very tempted...
Repped for help.

I use mine for all my gadgets, and as a remote for my X360 too! Ideal when watching movies via media centre. Setting it up involves a lot of trial and error though, mine isn't perfect yet but it's getting there.
#12
The more complicated a system you have, the more tweaking it'll need. If you have a basic TV / DVD / amplifier setup it should be a doddle. Mine's still not perfect for switching the TV inputs because it didn't know the TV and I had to program it manually, but it "knew" even less mainstream stuff like iStarHD media player and my cheapo Taiwanese HDMI switch no problem.

Note it can't control a PS3 as Sony in their wisdom made that a Bluetooth remote (well, there are ways to get it working with external hardware but I'll save that for now).
#13
great remote!

Love the humour - how would someone without a net enabled PC be reading this? :thumbsup:

Reading at the library or work only perhaps??

I have been using the 885 for over a year now, and while it does take a little time to set up everything, it is fantastic. I have Sony Bravia TV, Yamaha Amp, Sky +HD, Panasonic DVD/HD, Wii, PS3 and HDMI switcher and everything works perfectly. Turns TV to correct channel, amp to correct input and then the remote works each device perfectly.
Also the helpdesk is excellent and can program your remote over the internet.
#17
Another very happy 555 Harmony user here. Works a treat, and wasn't difficult to setup.

Got my TV, DVD, Amp, Freeview, PS2 and lights all under control with one remote. Even the wife understands how it works ;)
#18
will this remote work on any sanyo projectors?

su-31 for example
#19
def work sky+?
#20
Will this work with the xbox 360?
#21
Seriously this remote will work with any Infrar red controlled device.

Yep works nicely with my Sky HD Box, Sony Surround Sound System, rare make of TV (Bauer). Worth every penny.
#24
well spotted mate, i have taken the plunge and ordered one :)
#25
Amazon also doing the Harmony 525 for £30 delivered - very good alternative if counting your pennies - most people wouldn't be disappointed with the 525 if this is their first foray into all-in-one replacement remotes.

Amazon - Harmony 525

i don't know about that. in order for sanyo to charge such extortionate prices for their remote controls, they must have some proprietary technology that prevents other remotes from working.

Does this have a charging dock, or do you need to change batteries - Amazon suggests the latter, so just checking... cant be bothered to change batteries all the time!
#29
From what i can tell the higher version (855, i think it is) has the docking station, this one requires batteries. I suspect that the batteries will last quite a few weeks anyway, so would think its not a big deal having to change them once in a while, but i could be wrong.

Edit
judging by the experience of nihcah in post #36 below, looking in this database is not worthwhile. In another of his posts he expresses this stronger using the word scam.
#31
Might as well order the 525, the 555 is the 525 replacement but the only difference is 2 extra (pretty useless) buttons and orange backlight vs. blue.

I ordered the 525 last week from Expansys - was 27quid delivered using the £10 off voucher posted on here.

Edit: Posted it here:)

We got this remote a year ago, i wasn't sure about spending £50 on one remote but hubby bought it anyway. I must admit it is great (don't tell him that!). We have the TV, Sky +, DVD, Surround sound, PS3, and soon will have the lights on it. The customer service is great. One of the buttons stopped working thanks to my 1 year old throwing it across the room, contacted them and they sent a replacement within 2 days.

Great buy at this price!!

I ended up with the 525, and ALL of my devices were in the database - that was what fooled me into buying it, but they were only names, the setting were not all there, and all require extensive learning to get anything like full functionality - see my post in the thread on the 525 here:

Arrived today, and after about 20 mins and a few visits to the tv and back to the pc to reconfigure its working like a dream. Cant believe i have never tried one of these activity driven remotes before.. well worth the money :D

for your info i have it running several devices, including a dream box, xbox 360, tosh tv and sony amp. I had to set it up for a few of the features on the dreambox but the software is pretty intuitive so wasnt much effort.
