All in One remote control. Seems to be a good deal, without spending a lot more on better ones.

I've gone for a punt on this one as it'll be nice not to have four remotes knocking around.

Excellent piece of kit! Had one of these for a few years, easy to set up, simple to use.

It's a great Remote, I have had mine a couple of years now (although I paid about £30 for it in a Logitech blemished box sale). I upgraded to the Harmony Touch a couple of weeks ago but am 'struggling' with it, so now wonder if I should have stayed with my 650!

had this for 2 years+, still going strong! But somehow some dusts got into the screen
Works well with my Sony TV, Sky and even XBMC =) Just that it has some issues with my Logitech Z5500, it doesn't turn able to turn off the speaker sometime. Another downside is you can't add too many devices (if not mistaken is up to 5), other than that, this is excellent!

Just bought this, but read this:-

Replaces eight remotes

It’s easy to say goodbye to that jumble of remotes on the coffee table.

If any one has one could you let us know which is true.

Found this:-

Is this the latest version of the remote as the Logitech website states that the latest version can replace 8 other remote controls not 5

It's not the remote that's been updated, it's the software. All 650 models support 8 devices so long as you're using the latest MyHarmony sortware.

Great remote, had 2 of them 1st replaced by Logitech due to "watch tv button" not working after 9 months...can't fault it otherwise...

ordered - thanks!

got two of these for use on different floors one of the best non-touchscreen remotes

I have had 4 of these, keep breaking down at just less than 12 months old and getting replaced under warranty, build quality must be dire. Last time I got sent the Logitech Harmony 1 as a replacement but it's a pain to keep charging it - unused for 6 months.

Cheaper direct through Logitech a lot of the time £29.75, so a bit on the chilly side for me.

Love mine! Don't put crap batteries in though as it eats them really quick. Good old Duracell batteries required.

You have to be signed up to their VIP website for their deals to be visible, but as I said they're pretty unreliable, so hope that it breaks within warranty. I've never been asked to post a broken one back yet, so they must be coppers to make with no salvageable parts for refurb.

Got one and while it can be good when it works, it's frustrating when it doesn't! I've got a media setup with a WDTV Live box which has a power toggle rather than separate on/off commands. Tried to reprogramme the instructions for putting everything on and off together and it seemed quite limited? More time required looking into it.

Put some good quality recharagables in it (mine was supplied from logitech with a pair of eneloops) and charge it via the microusb port when it gives the battery low warning. Never need to buy batteries again.

Thanks, just paid £35 using the Mastercard £5 off £40 spend promo. Effectively paid £17.50 after using bespoke vouchers to pay the remaining £35.

Still have the 350 from 2 years ago when I paid £20 for it. Still works so can't justify buying another lol. Great price though for this one.

Couldn't be without my Harmony any more. I have the Harmony One.

Ordered, thanks.

I got one a few weeks ago from amazon for the same price on a deal. It supports 8 remotes, It is fairly easy to use but some controls need to be directly taught. Bought a logitech ir to wireless adapter from logitech for £20 with a discount and can now control my PS3, brilliant.

My 650 (also a blemished box deal) started to have problems with some of the buttons not working, but I'd had several years use out of it, so have also bought a Touch.
So far that's all working just fine, though I do instinctively go for button locations from the old 650.

They are both fine remotes and well worth a go.

Saw this this morning and thought, nah. But now, becasue it's on HUKD, and I can't get one, I want 1!

Thanks, got one

Interesting!

Do you know if this approach works with other models? I'm still using a 555 model (the only one except the really expensive ones that does enough devices for me - it does 15) and it uses 4 x AAA batteries. I have rechargeables (VapexTech - so decent ones) and it would very handy if I could give them a quick blast in the device from time to time.

As for setup - it does take a bit of effort to get it right, but they're great once they're sorted.

Assuming you have one that has learning capability, just add keys from one device to another. So pretty much all my devices have an unused key mapped to the power toggle key of my TV so I can kill the TV whatever device is driving it at any given time.

Had this for 3 and a half years. Still works reasonably well but a few of the buttons aren't particularly responsive which is annoying. Have had a different harmony for at least 6 years and still works perfectly, seems like they lowered the build quality.

this model is not capable of charging through the usb

I had the Harmony One until the screen died, now have the Harmony Touch. I much preferred this style (650, One) the Touch just jumps on the touchscreen bandwagon and is really slow.
One thing I discovered after various functions stopped working on several model has I had was my son's radio controlled Fireman Sam fire engine when left turned on would interfere with the signal. Took me ages to work this out, countless factory restore and one exchange of product. You never know that might help someone.

I was just going to post this. Mine's been running with the Duracel's from the package for the past 5 months. Great remote. Some of the setup is a bit fiddy but overall quality.

forgive my ignorance here ..can some one explain why should I buy this remote when I can configure 99p store remote to manage my sky box ,a super old CRT TV and it has also spare configs to configure few more devices!!!

cool!! Indeed surprisingly the 99p store remote has been working all right for an year so far, slight pat on the back is needed at times like a standard remote...I hope this Logitech one seems to be B&O of remotes when compared with 99p store remote..I think than this is more of a luxury than need..

Got this today and have it set up to control my four devices.
Loving the activities that turn everything on/off, sets inputs and gets everything ready depending on what I need to do..

Christmas has come early this year..

Does your remote do sequences? For example, when I press the "Watch a Movie" button, it turns on my Projector (and once I get my screen setup, rolls down the screen), sets it to the correct input, turns on the amplifier, sets it to the correct input, turns the light off and after all of that, it mixes together being able to control my Mac Mini media centre while also being able to adjust the volume, without changing between different ones.

And then once I'm finished if I want to turn everything off(or back on/up in the case of my light/screen), I just press "All Off" and it turns them all off with one press.

I think that's probably what this brings that-that does not. Automation, ease of use and likely much higher compatibility (although I don't know anything about your 99p remote to comment with 100% accuracy on the last part).

Hi,

With the software and the remote connected to the software you can enter new commands for one of your devices.
I guess it depends of the remote seems out a normal ir command.

The Harmony can learn from any remote control. Obviously much easier using the device details it can set itself up but can point the other remote at it and in its learning mode it will store the function.

With regards to the PS3 adapter all Harmonys need this as the PS3 uses Bluetooth and the Harmonys use infra red.

Do I go to:-
Home
Devices
Activities
Buttons
Favorites
Settings
and then what, nothing seems to pop and say Learn this Remote.

Looks like you found the same thing. On the remote go to Devices then you should see the learn option.
