This is the first time I've seen these this cheap, although I'll admit I've only been looking on-and-off. Normally north of £40.

The only REAL way to get a universal remote working with the PS3, complete with discrete ON/OFF functionality, which no other generally availible PS3 IR remote or adaptor can do.

What about IR4PS3 or the myriad of other options?

They were around £24 delivered at amazon last month.

Oh and my IR2BT that I bought 3 years ago does the same thing. So its not the only way.
#4
I specifically said "generally availible" becasue options like IR4PS3 are put together by a Canadian in his front room, or sold as DIY kits.

Ebuyer, damn, didn't see that.

FWIW though, were they ever that cheap?

Must have been a marketplace seller then. I know a fair few people on avforums ordered them at that price.

These are excellent. Has by far the best signal pick up / range of any of my IR stuff. You could point the remote at the moon and this thing would read it.

I take it that it doesn't have to be in line of site like a it remote as my ps3sits be




I take it that this doesn't have too be in the line of sight like with a normal ir remote as my ps3sits behind my av rack

This has to be in line-of-sight as the Logitech Harmony remotes are IR and you are still using the Harmony remote to control this. It comes on a lead though so you can position it in a visible spot.

As per my previous post it's worth noting that the receiver is excellent quality and has a very wide receiving angle. But yes, it is IR and does technically require "line of site" but in my experience just pointing anywhere in the room is good enough for it to work. Hope that's helpful :)

Am I missing something here? this is 30 odd quid and you need a separate remote as well, whereas the official ps3 remote is less than half that at nearer £12-£15???

What exactly is the point of this, surely it is just clutter and prevents it from achieving its own aims of reducing clutter???? - Please, I am really scratching my head here!

same here....stilll trying to figure out the point of this.....:?

People buy the Harmony remotes so that they can use one remote for everything.

Also means they can use 'discreet' codes, which means rather then pressing the AV button on your TV remote 4/5 times, there is a shortcut to that particular input. When they press 'PS3' on their remote, it switches the PS3 on, changes their TV over to the PS3 input, switches their amplifier on etc.

To be honest, soon as I worked out that my Microsoft MCE remote worked the volume and TV input button, that's the only one I use now. Never had any need for something like this but can understand why others would.

Now gone up 2p!

I got a harmony remote to replace 6 remotes in my living room (tv, dvd, video, ipod dock, sky box, surround sound amp) and it's a genius piece of kit. The only thing missing was ps3 control for watching blurays, so I got this at xmas, and now just have one for everything.

Highly recommended, setup's a doddle, and I paid much more than this!
#16
Although it’s a good price compared to what it often is, and the rrp, I still think it’s well over priced for what it is. I don’t see any reason why this should cost more than a tenner.

I also don’t see why they couldn’t just make a harmony remote that also does Bluetooth?
#17
if this is something you buy just to use a harmony remote on a ps3 then this is just a waste of space. im not gonna vote cold because it is cheaper than somewhere else i think, but to think people would buy this and plug it in into an ac adapter seems like a waste of money. when you have a ps3 pad lying around the ps3 anyway, plus a blu ray remote costs around a tenner. how could people spend triple than just to get it to work with a universal remote.

This would be nice to see, but it would hike up the price when a lot of people don't have any need for BT. An alternative model with BT would be nice to see though.

Even if there was this option though, this device means people with existing remotes wouldn't need to replace their remotes just to use with their PS3.

I love my Harmony One but I don't use my PS3 for movies as I have a BR player for that (bought the BR player first when I didn't have a need for a PS3).

It's a great price for what it does. I have a different device that i use for the same effect with a programmable remote. It is way more intuitive to use than the pad for navigating through movies. I'll agree on the ac adapter bit in that it is an annoyance to have yet another thing to plug into wall socket, but for what it is, great price. If you're happy with your pad, lovely, but i don't exactly enjoy picking up a different remote for tv, set top box, ps3 (bluray), dvd player (multiregion), network media tank etc. Of course sony could have very easily included an ir interface or at least a official usb one - lots of people would pay for that.
#21
Just to clarify something for people asking about line of sight - A line of sight is required to the Logitech Adapter (you don't necesarily have to point directly at it, but the IR signal from the Harmony needs to be able to reach the adapter) but you *don't* need a line of sight to the PS3. The adapter can be placed discretely by your televisiopn, and because the communication between Adapter and PS3 is via Bluetooth, the PS3 can be placed inside a (well ventilated) cupboard without any issue.

I am hoping that other companys start using BT for remote controls, because it works fantastically well on the PS3. If more devices become BT controlled, then Harmony will probably build it in. For as long as it is just one device on the market, it is impractical to ask Logitech to make a BT capable remote (although they do make RF ones now, so it might happen soon anyway)

I Agree with the all in one idea, but if it means you have to use mains to get this thing to work and pay nearly 3 times as much as a sony ps3 remote, it defeats the object.

I guess we'd all like this to be cheaper, but what you're really doing is justifying what you forked out on your Harmony remote in the first place! It's a bit embarassing when you are showing off your flashy all-in-one then have to pickup the ps3 remote! :oops: The object is to be all-in-one!!!

If you have Harmony and use PlayTV like me, then this adaptor is very attractive....if not then the Sony BT remote is just fine.

Would you say one of these and play tv for use on a main tv is a good choice?

I already have a harmony remote and have just canceled my sky subscription.

Does it work/play/record etc. flawlessly with the harmony ?

Wonder why it hasn't happened. I remember when BT was first launched there was talk of it springing up in pretty much every device in no time, didn't really happen.

I guess IR is just that bit cheaper. :(

I too recently cancelled my Sky subscription. I use PlayTV and have a Harmony 515 but not this adaptor so I have to use my Sony BT remote. This is tempting to me as I can have a true one remote solution.

If you don't have a Sony BT remote yet then you can effectively take the cost of that off the Harmony adaptor. If you do have the BT remote, then its down to your budget and how irritating you find switching remotes.

PlayTV is pretty good, especially if you can get it for £29.99 on the Sainsbury thread, I paid more :oops: Although one months SKY subs will cover it! I have an activity on the Harmony called "Use PS3" which turns on TV, changes to HDMI and switches on 5.1 system. But then I have to hit BT remote to switch PS3 on.

It does lack series link, which means you have to set weekly repeat recording that can break if the broadcast time changes or over runs. Its certainly one of the nicest freeview GUIs I've seen, and you can copy recordings off to backup if you want.

Only problem I have is, because my PS3 is on while I watch TV, my friends keep sending me messages inviting me to play! :-D

Hope that helps
