Thanks for posting. It might be best to add the fact that it is a one day only offer (plus the expiry on the deal). So that it correctly expires today (expiry as 20/03)

The lay out of the buttons.Ultimate a bit more fidderly to use the stop, pause, FF, rewind & rec. Some that have (had) both might tell you more.

It's hot in here!

Why do Amazon say the price of £159 is a saving of £57.98 when the OP says the original price was £299.11?
Been after for ages, thanks
I only want the hub...
I still have my trusty Harmony One (bulging battery swapped out many years ago).

This tempts me - however I still grimace at the button placement (everything in the "right" place on the One) and no alpha numerical buttons for quick finding of items on my nas.

Gets used mostly for 1st gen Nividia Shield TV with Kodi/SPMC and BT YouView through Denon AV Amp.

Convince me someone!

^I am the same, need the button layout to be like this, it just feels 'right'.
Did your buttons stop working? I had the buttons get tired within warrantee and they replaced it quickly but the second one had the same problem, hardly use it now - have to press the buttons quite hard and my old folks dont quite have the strength for it anymore!
What do these pop buttons do

It has apps numerical buttons on the touch screen though not as good as real ones but then I rarely use them. Much less of a loss than Logitech never producing a One with the colour buttons.

Honestly, unless you're going to use the hub features, controlling devices in cupboards with the blasters, using Bluetooth and WiFi controlled devices and linking into 'smart' devices etc, you're not going to gain a lot if happy with a One.

Obviously this set come with their crazily priced pop switches which make the price higher than it could be if you're not going to use them.
Great price, but tbh if you have an echo then the pop seems more than a bit redundant.

Why you'd install a button to have to press instead of just asking alexa to do it is beyond me outside of a few specialised cases (people who have speech difficulties for example).
What's the benefit of the POP Switch stuff? I've got SmartThings already, is this just Logitech's equivalent or is it something else?

Yep, my "OK" button clicks down but doesn't always connect, needs a harder push, it's done us well for a long time now (and as said above, no colour buttons is it's only foible really).

Just checked back and I paid £75.00 for it on promo on Amazon in Jan 2009! Bargain. Only previous issue was the bulging battery so I got a brand new unit in 2011 and sold the dud on eBay. So I've had 7 years from this One.

I can't help but feel that their latest range is one step forward and two steps back compared to the good old One... hence why I haven't bit the bullet yet, but a good price nevertheless and only a tenner extra for the "smart" stuff that I might never use (smart = spying on you is the price paid just for being lazy ). But at least I would have the option.

it is compared with the prices if purchasing them separately after the discount on each
The bundle consists of 2 packages
Last sale they had the harmony elite + alexa for £149.99 odd - was a great deal as sold alexa for £50 on amazon and remote was cheap

Might be able to do same here (remote + hub sells for £180 odd on its own on fleabay).
This is an absolutely fantastic bit of kit. Love mine.
tempting, but i already have the Harmony Ultimate and am very happy with that. i dont think i need the 'white buttons' to make it even easier for the rug rats to turn on the telly either.

good find and heat given.

Can this control stuff hidden away in cupboard?

I did consider doing this, but the Pop sells on eBay for about £10 so didn't see the point.

This deal includes the starter kit, which is two switches and the bridge. It’s the single add on switches that sell for about £10 on eBay

I replaced a One with the Ultimate hub deal which was on here for £60. The transit button placement is annoying but the upgrade in functionality especially now they have sorted the Alexa skill makes it worthwhile imo Also the hard colour keys are useful and were the main drawback of the otherwise flawless One design.

The Elite has the better button layout but I can't justify it at 3x the price. Functionality is pretty much identical barring the dedicated smart light buttons.

Is this worth the upgrade over the previous remote (Harmony Touch)?
Anyone have an opinion?

I have a similar setup, the hub is in the AV cupboard, you can set some devices to be controlled from the remote not the hub & it's (incredibly impressive) IR blaster.

So when using the 'Cinema' activity for example, I point the remote somewhere near the TV/Screen & the IR signal bounces around & switches the projector on, my screen is manual though, (really long drop in a Victorian house so costly enough already) & you may be stuck on the RF side, cos nothing does RF anymore AFAIK, as the tech is so old.

It's easily circumvented with an RF to IR mod though, a small bit of soldering & you're done. Before that I'd consider contacting the screen manufacturer to see if there's an official IR accessory though.

Also, the hub comes with two smaller IR blasters on long cables so you can route them out of the back of the cupboard to hit things, & they work very well indeed.

TL;DR

The projector you can set to work direct from the remote, the RF screen you'll need to look into.
The pop starter kits go for £50ish on the 'bay.

Anyone know if this will work with Xiaomi Yeelight's?

And will can the pop things be set up to get a sonos connect in another room to turn on and play radio - bored of telling my dot to 'play radio 2 in the kitchen' for it to get confused or start playing radio through the dot (instead of the sonos)
For what it's worth, this device has just completed my home cinema room. Thanks, OP. And, for once, my wife will say money well spent!

Thanks OP, Ordered in advance of redoing my cinema setup soon.
Just be careful with the rubbery plastic at the back of the remote. Like the Ultimate, if this get scratched it peels off and looks rather crap.

Here's the link to the RF to IR guide I knew I'd perused in the past, it has links to a handy forum post which includes products used to achieve it, it's a US guide so you may need to order internationally but at the least it's a start.

Of course, your screen manufacturer having an actual IR convertor would be ideal, but i'd guess they'd rather get people to buy new screens than make such an adapter.

As the post talks about modding the remote it means you can buy a spare remote & tinker & if it doesnt work no harm done.
I'm sure you can find a mod removing the IR relay from the screen itself, but it's obviously much more work & if it doesnt work the cost is much higher, using this method means if it doesnt work you've not wasted much cash, & if it does the only challenge is hiding the RF remote with mod somewhere that the IR blaster/extender can talk to it & the RF signal coming out of the remote will hit the screen, which shouldn't be too tricky.

Pop? Does it sing too?
Just returned my harmony and hub after upgrading from the one in the recent Amazon £79.99 offer it was hopelessly temperamental and not where near as logically laid out as the one. Just the omission of the help button meant you had to dig down when it didn’t work correctly - pretty much every time for me!
Does anyone know if this can replace the Amazon Fire TV remote too?
