Great universal remote and a decent price.

You can get cheaper URCs but this is one of the best available - decent 'hard' button layout plus the flexibility of a touch screen and all configure-able from a web interface. Handy charging base too.

Agree with the above. I have had a number of all in one remotes but this is definately the best. Setup was a breeze and the touchscreen/hard button interface makes for easy viewing!

The £30 voucher code does not work, so the price is £99.99... which is cold

I have just used the voucher and it works fine. Make sure you dont have a space at the end.

is correct i was useing the wrong code !

good price, but not a good remote in my opinion. clicky buttons, very slow/tedious to update and slow response when controlling media centre via IR.

i'd check it out in a shop before buying...

Got one of these a few months back from Amazon when they were £70. Great piece of kit.

Heh, I found that too. Hide them away and she'll adapt.

Hot, great piece of kit. I've already got a 785 otherwise I'd be getting it.

Probably because Sky uses the coloured buttons heavily in its interface and the Harmony One lacks tactile coloured buttons. Touchscreen nightmare for coloured buttons. I'd rather get the 885 or something like that, especially if you have Sky.

Logitech messed up on this one with the lack of coloured buttons - otherwise it would be the greatest remote ever.

You can programme the hard buttons to the colours of you must. I don't have an issue with the touchscreen for them. For the amount of time you actually use them.

got to agree with the others on the lack of coloured buttons but if you can live with that and the fact that it needs charging up about once a week then it;s a great remote

Do you have Sky?

Sometimes it's like your not using anything but the coloured buttons.

You need them for everything - all the time.

But whatever, if you can live with them on the touch screen or reprogrammed to an incorrect tactile button then this is THE remote.

Wow - never noticed the One doesn't have the four colour buttons before. I'd been keeping an eye out for this model to come down in price again, but don't think I'll bother now.
Gotta say, though - the Harmony are fantastic remotes. I was sceptical when I first saw them on here, but recently bought the 515 model. (Cheaper remote, no touch screen, etc.) Now I'm a believer!

Heat and rep added, as this is a fantastic remote, despite the above; and a great price.



Incidentally, to anyone who's got one - do the "hard buttons" on the Harmony One click when pressed?
That's one thing I don't like on my 515... Scrolling through the channels one by one with the up/down buttons, with a constant click click click with each button press...
(Have gotten around it by reprogramming the skip/ffwd buttons etc. to work as up down left right whilst on Sky, though it's not ideal - and the missus still uses the clicky ones)

A good remote this. The software is kind of web based and can be a bit time consuming to use but once you've done it it works great. I only use the coloured buttons on freeview so they're set-up on the touch screen. Hardware ones would be an improvement but not a big negative not having them I don't think. The mrs certainly likes only having one remote rather than 5! I have Xbox set-up as media centre with it, stereo, tv, freeview box, dvd player and my zune too. You need a dongle or something for a PS3 I believe as it uses Bluetooth.

I've got mixed opinions of this, I had one and sold it

Problems were:

Macros - fine if it started in exactly the same place each time, otherwise chaos ensued
The only way it could change to AV6 on my TV, was to send the AV button 5 times
It couldn't control my soundbar, would always send signal too many times to change between op1/op2 so was no good to change from Sky to PS3

Sky wasn't too much of an issue though to be fair

They have a tactile click, but no real audiable click

I know you can program this remote to run a sequence of commands eg selecting dvd will turn DVD on and change TV to correct AV channel. Ive got remote for power sockets, can i use this remote to add the plugs into the sequence?

If they're IR it can learn the codes from your existing remote

Yeah, I agree. The Harmonys are simply the best remote you can get. I started on the 525 and went up to the 885. Was so excited about the Harmony One but would never get it without the tactile coloured button (a kick in the face for Europe/UK for sure).

Agree about clickly buttons though.

The software and what you can do with it is fantastic. Creating activities and stuff is fun. I loved that when I upgraded from my 525 I simply connected my 885 up and it transferred all my setting from my PC. So good.

The cradle is a joy and a life saver. I never have to worry about it (having a God awful Kameleon remote in the past makes me thank God for this).

One thing that annoys me is when no marks on here bawk at the price cos they've seen a £3.99 universal remote in Lidl or something.

Harmony for the Win (just not the Harmony One).

Excellent remote, picked one up from the amazon deal a few months back

The only problem was that it took forever to get the setup right for my samsung LE40M TV - had to do it mannually, everything else - xbox, Toshiba HD DVD player, SKY HD, Sony Amp set up perfectly.

Yeah, I have it to control my fan!

Great price for a great piece of kit. I was sick of having 6 or 7 remotes lying about cluttering up the living room. The all in one has changed all of this, its fair to say that Harmony remotes really are the bees knees.

I went for the 885 personally due to it having the coloured sky buttons.

People come round my house and cant believe I paid £70 for a remote but their tune soon changes when they see I can turn off my TV and Sky box and turn on my Amp, Projector and 360 with just a single button press!

Do yourself a favour and purchase!

will this work with PS3 and its bluray player too?

Banned

I use

The top reward key as RED
The + button at bottom as GREEN (planner)
The E button at bottom as YELLOW (delete)
The top FastForward key as BLUE

Works great for me now I'm used to it.

I have a remote control fire, can I program the remote to work with the fire?

you gotta have a lot of devices to need one of these.

thats your TVs fault, not the remote. Discreet input commands FTW! (means you can press a "av4" button for example, to switch to input 4, rather than input scrolling commands.

If you add a USB IR adaptor from a cheapo PS3 IR remote ....yes.

I have a sequence for planner, HD channels, settings, favourites etc. This means that I rarely actually need the coloured buttons as they are programmed into the sequences.

The only ones needed are the yellow button for deleting from the planner and the +/- 24 hour buttons which I have on the screen.

Works very well.

Logitech have an IR to Bluetooth adaptor in the works that will allow full control over the PS3, including switching it on from the remote but an aforementioned cheapie USB IR dongle works pretty well too albeit with slightly reduced functionality.

great.. mine ordered : )

How does this compare with the logitech 555 remote?

Exactly the same software.

The differences are in the build quality of the remote, the button layout, the touchscreen, colour screen, charger etc.

Another thumbs up from me, a great remote and well worth the money.

Is it worth the extra £25ish? (compared with the 555)

Thanks JayBird. +1 rep.

(+1 rep to Istanbul_Kop too)

Depends on personal preferences/circumstances
Coloured touchscreen rather than monotone display with corresponding buttons is very nice, of course, but not essential. The 555 has the four colour buttons, but they're right at the bottom which isn't ideal if you use them a lot, but at least they're there...

markwills;5060787

IMO yes. But I like flash gadgets. It does the same thing though just looks and works nicer.

If you can get over the coloured buttons issue.
