Missed the 650 at Richer Sounds for £40. I can live without colour display and icons so £30 to my door is great. Thanks OP. Ordered. No doubt the new models are about to be announced.

basically anything which uses a IR remote (as opposed to bluetooth) - i use the older 525 remote and any command which aren't in their database you can teach the harmony remote directly using your original remote

Not bad at all! Wouldn't mind the 650, but no complaints at the price either :)

Just waiting for the usual moaners in these threads that cannot understand the need for a universal remote, you know, the ones that have a tv with integrated freeview and a dvd player connected to their tv via a scart lead...their ignorance call av owners "lazy", and universal remotes a "pointless expense"

Still available at £29.99 under more buying choices but a 2-3 week dispatch time.
#8
Now at £49.99
#9
Can this thing learn a sequence of button presses? For example with one button press it turns tv on, turns pvr on, changes channel and sets to record?
#10
Ooop's Amazon still £29.00

Crippleware! I thought I might replace my 525 which is falling apart but it looks like these newer models are limited in software to a small number of devices. I need support for at least 6

I must say besides the build quality of these newer units, bang for buck you do get better amount of devices available to be programmed on older Harmony remotes, I am glad I have my 555 and 720 remotes.

Yes, they have device function, which replicate the programming of the original remotes this unit is replacing, and an activities function, which can use multiple device functions in a macro, so in your instance in the software you would as an example use the user friendly interface to do the following:

Device Tv, Power On
Device TV, Switch to HDMI 1 (example input for your PVR)
Device PVR, Power On
Device PVR, 101 (Selects BBC1 example)
Device PVR, Record.

And obviously these stepped macro functions can then be stored as an activity in a given name that you wish to call the activity.

Thanks cicobuff. Ordered 8)

I think you will be pleased, having an on screen display for adding text, such as the names of your "Activities" (Macros) as well as in Device Mode being able to add text to additional buttons, such as "DVD Angle" or "Pure Direct Mode" for your AV Receiver adds flexibility to the remote on top of its usual generic buttons.

You use the top screen window and can scroll through pages of an additional buttons you want to add for any given device above and beyond the usual generic button programmings, useful for complex button functions associated with DVD Recorders and AV Receivers.

I bought one of these last week. The thing I like most about it is that it senses when you pick it up: the screen activates and the buttons illuminate, saving the batteries when it's idle.
#18
Got one for my dad for xmas but as others have pointed out the newer models are very restricted in terms of devices almost forcing you to the higher level (and cost) devices. When my 525 breaks it's going to be a costly replacement it seems.

Was in stock at Play by the way for £29.99 + Quidco.

It is strange, as all Harmony software across the range is the same, they have not improved functionality with the 600 and 650, instead have crippled the amount of devices they support. In their favour are superior build quality, button quality and ergonomics from my experience with my father in laws 650, as well as less power consumption requiring 2 batteries instead of the previous 4 batteries that entry level Harmony remotes had.
#21
Got the 515 and its superb, even my technophobic wife can use it. Shame my little girl pulled off the power button but it still changes things over perfectly.
#22
Ok, I have 2 x 525's which i love. however, one of them is buggered so i'm looking to replace.

Is this any good, as i've no idea what the differences are between this and the 525's.

As a minimum i need it to control my TV, WDTV Live and a DVD player. I assume this is Activity based, with programable buttons, and that i can add sequences too?

Just not sure why i'd go for a 515 at £10 more.....??

Agreed. I had a 525 die and I picked up a 600 to replace it, but was shocked to find that Harmony had artificially crippled it with the number of devices allowed. Interestingly, because I switched my account from the 525 to the 600 then >4 devices were already configured and they all appeared to sync to the 600, so the hardware is clearly capable of handling it. Only when I came to edit my configuration did the software stop me making changes until I deleted some devices.

It's pretty crappy though - the 515/525 were cheap and supported lots of devices, but you have to spend a wad of cash now if you want to control more than a handful with the current Logitech offerings.

Sad to see Logitech running backwards. I'm sure some one else will come along eventually. Will have to keep an eye on fleabay till then I guess. I love my 555 but the lcd is broken. Still doing it's job though.

Yes it can, it also does this intelligently you don't have to program the sequence. You just tell it about your set up and it does this for you.
#27
If your prepared to wait for stock you can still get it for that price

300 controls 4 devices also only has one activity button.
600/650 control 5 devices
700 control 6 devices

I got the harmony one which controls 15 :) and a 300 for the bedroom wouldn't be without them..

Hi
I know what you mean but ive just bought a new signal box and it transmits my thoughts to any AV device in my house. How do you like them apples. It cost me a small fortune but hey when you win the lottery money is not a problem.
I like reading some of the comments on here still as I get a giggle for all the peasants who like to scrimp and save.
For anyone who would like one google Logitech "Mind AV Transmitter". cheers people.
