Your other half? Can't beat people as remote controls. No other remote responds to "Oi! Eject my DVD and bring it here." :)

logitech harmony. Nothing beats it, but it all depends on what you want to spend, they go from low end approx 75 dollars to a whole lot of money :)

Well they have like how many harmoneys, the 880, 1000, and some older ones as well. The 1000 is like the best, but looks kinda stupid. I don't have money for them at the moment but when I do I am willing to pay the 200 for them.

you will get an awesome remote for that amount of money. I trust logitech's customer service so much I would even consider getting a refurbished one because the prices on those are amazing. (amazon or buy.com sometimes have some really good prices on refurbs)

Awesome to hear, now how about setting them up. Is the harmony easy to get it to work with things. Or is it just easy to setup with general things that most people use..

I will be using it for (or would want too) TV, Satellite Box, Xbox, media server (program installed on windows or linux) and thing like that...

Load the software, a wizard will ask you what equipment you have. plug in the remote to a usb port and boom, everything works.

the harmony software is the crown jewel of it all. It has probably every single one of your components in a database and pulls it right up in the wizard. Also you can customize the buttons to do make them things that you want them to be. I have the 550 (previously had the xbox 360 version) and they were set up in no time and I had set unused buttons for things I wanted them to be. If the button is not in the database you can have the remote learn the button by going through the wizard and aiming the other remote at the back of it (that was the instructions for mine) and the remote learns it.

It's really really nice.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
