The Logitech Harmony 670 universal remote lets you intuitively control an advanced audio/video system. Four activity buttons keep things simple — even houseguests unfamiliar with your system can operate it with push-button ease. And a straightforward Internet-based setup makes getting started a snap.

Program your remote easily over the web
Connect your Harmony remote to your computer with the supplied USB cable to get started. Go to the Harmony Remote website and answer some simple questions about the components you have and how they're set up. When you're done, the site automatically programs your remote accordingly. Plus, it remembers information about your setup, making it quick and easy to reprogram the remote if you add components down the road.

Intuitive controls
Four dedicated/preset "Activity" buttons offer one-touch control of your system. For example, to play a DVD, just press "Watch Movie." The 670 instantly evaluates your system, turns on or off the appropriate components, selects the proper settings, and starts the DVD player. The remote's screen then changes to show the controls you'll need for watching a DVD — like play, pause, skip, and volume.

Features

General Overview: The Harmony Remote provides simple, intuitive control of even the most elaborate entertainment system for anyone in the family. The remote setup is accomplished through Harmony's interactive web site. Up to 15 devices can be controlled by the Harmony 670.

Setup: The Harmony Remote Activities are configured through our unique Web Wizard tools on Harmony's web site. With the world's only Smart State Database of electronic devices, set-up is a snap. The community-driven database together with IR learning ensures support of all infrared-controlled devices made by any manufacturer, including TiVo, HD-VCR, HDTV, Plasma Displays, Monitors, Projectors, Lighting Control, CD/DVD-R, PVR (Personal Video Recorder), Satellite Radios, Amplifiers, DVD Players, Receivers, Dual VCRs and even combination devices like DVD-VCR components.

Backlighting: The buttons and LCD display are backlit for easy nighttime use. The backlight operation is adjustable; it can be engaged only by the glow button, or by any button, and the backlight time can be changed.

Learning function: In addition to the devices which can be entered using the web interface, this remote can also learn most functions of other infrared remotes.

Activity: The Harmony Remote is the world's only remote with Smart State Technology Activity Control. Just press an Activity button such as "Watch TV" or "Watch a Movie", and the Harmony Remote will automatically set-up your entertainment system in seconds without you ever having to program a 'macro'.

Interactive Display: Depending on the Activity you are enjoying, the Interactive Display offers additional commands or options allowing you to fully control the Activity or component.

Help: If there is ever a problem completing an activity function, the help button will guide you through the fix using the interactive display.

PVR Control: Convenient access to transport controls (Fast forward, Rewind, Play, Stop, Pause, Play, and Record) makes using PVR/TiVo functions second nature.

Flash Memory: The non-volatile flash memory stores all your settings so they will never be lost, meaning changing the batteries doesn't have to be a race.

Off: One push of the off button turns off all the equipment in your system.

Pure Junk

Written By Peter, Valencia on Saturday, November 21, 2009

The remote dies out of warranty. LCD fails making the remote useless. Many on Logitech's forums have the same problem. Logitech's response...sorry your remote is broken. It is out of warranty, too bad. Here is our selection of new remotes for you to buy.

Tricky to setup, but great purchase

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I will start by saying that Crutchfield is great. I have been dealing with
them for years now and they are very proffessional and their tech support
is second to none. I bought this remote and within a day or so the box was
at my door. After connecting the remote I followed the directions and
continued to set up the remote. To my surprise none of my components
worked right with the remote. After a few calls with Logitech customer
service , they diagnosed the problem right friom there computer. At one
point I was thinking of sending the remote back but after a few days of
having 1 remote control everything, I change my mind. I guess the remote
is easier to setup depending on your equipment configuration.

Excellent

I originally bought the 880, and still have it for the TV downstairs. I like this one much better, easier buttons to find.

Great Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We've been using this remote for a few weeks now. We love it so far! As other reviewers have mentioned, the setup was very easy. No more entering 5 different 6 digit codes trying to find the right one for your device. You simply install the software, enter your model numbers, answer some simple questions regarding which devices you're going to use for what, and plug it in to your USB port. The software does (mostly) the rest. For a few of my TiVo functions the remote had to "learn" them. The software prompted me to aim my TiVo remote at the IR receiver on the bottom and push the required buttons. Another sweet deal is that all of my settings are now stored on my computer hard drive so they can easily be restored if needed (as opposed to re-entering a bunch of codes as it used to be).

If I have one minor gripe it's that I haven't been able to get full manual control of my AV receiver with it. It works great for changing from watching tv to watching DVDs etc, and the volume control works but when I want to change setting for sound modes, etc on my reciever I must grab my Yamaha remote. You're supposed to be able to set custom buttons, etc. I have tried it yet. Perhaps soon I'll be able to get everything working.

Harmony at last!

Written By joe, Ft.Lauderdale. Fla on Monday, March 02, 2009

I should have bought one of these a long time ago! Works everything Tv, dvd, bluray,cd player, sattelite & receiver all w/ no problems! Load the software, go to the website plug the remote into your computer 30-45 mins later total harmony. So easy to use even the wife had no problems using it!

Nice remote

Written By pdxtomct, Portland, OR on Thursday, January 08, 2009

I read a lot of reviews and considered several options before purchasing this remote. When it arrived, I spent about an hour programming the remote up on the computer. It's quite simple. You merely enter the brand and model number of each component and choose how you want the pieces to work. I have a Samsung plasma TV, Sony Blu-ray player, an ancient Sony AV receiver, DirecTV DVR, Yamaha CD player, and Sony Mini-Disc player. I can now push a single button and the appropriate components turn on for the chosen activity. The only issue I have with this remote is the AAA batteries. I'd prefer AAs or a rechargeable internal battery. My solution will be to buy a AAA rechargeables. I highly recommend this remote and wish I would have made this investment long ago.

Excellent Remote

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This remote works great. It works all of my devices. Really like the fact that I can turn on multiple devices with the touch of one button and didn't have to set up macros line many other universal remotes. Web based set up was very easy. I loved the fact you don't have to enter codes for each device like most remotes.

Freaking Awesome!

Written By felix, Wilkes Barre PA on Friday, August 31, 2007

I bought a plasma TV HD and then built a 7 speaker surround sound, DirecTV HD DVR and HD DVD Player/Burner. A great system, All from Crutchfield. I connected it myself. Huge project. If I had to do that again I’d have had a pro do it and paid the $400. Anyways I learned a lot.

My wife and my family were very frustrated with the multiple of remotes they had to use. So much so that they just were using the DirecTV remote that only used the volume on the TV and by passing the Receiver and Surround sound. I was very frustrated thinking I wasted so much time and money.

This remote made me love my new system and my family too. With one button you turn on the TV, Receiver and Direct TV and everything is right on. Same with the DVD player and the Stereo. All the TiVo features are there and it works great.

The online setup linked by cable to the remote was easy. Since I set the system up I was familiar with all the inputs it asked for like TV Channel, TV input, Receiver Input. Even so it did take me a few times to get it right but after about 10 minutes it was dead on.

Totally Pleased

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this on the recommendation of the Crutchfield advisor and am so glad I did. My local big box stores were steering me toward much more expensive universal remotes and this one does what I need (TV/VCR/home theater/DVD) perfectly. Works like a charm and the USB connection/website programming process is easy. It did take me a little while to resolve an issue with some of the settings, but I've struggled a lot more and for longer with far less useful remotes.

Logitech® Harmony® 670

Written By Dennis, Camarillo, CA on Monday, March 19, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Would have rated this product higher except for customer support and exceedingly slow or unavailable access to the Harmony web site to program the unit. Spent over an hour on the phone with 2 tech reps only to learn that my problem was due to a software "issue". The Sound and Pic buttons that enable custom sound and picture menus don't work properly. The design concept is very good and execution is good, except that a bit larger buttons would be helpful. If customer support and web site access were better I would have rated it 4 stars.

Ok, but too expensive.

Written By Terry, Kaysville, Utah on Wednesday, March 07, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this remote along with a 659. The 659 was half the price as the remote and basically the same remote. The layout was a little different and there are two extra buttons on the 670; the skip forward and backward. So for twice the money you really are not getting much more of a remote. Sure the 670 is aimed at DVR users, guess what the 659 works great.

So I took one star off for the price, without any "real" added features. The second star I deducted was for the color. Avoid any of these Logitech remotes if they are silver. I like Logitech and have owned a lot of their products, but the paint on this remote is terrible. Stick with the black remotes, you'll be happier.

Very Harmonious

Written By minime, Hickory, NC on Thursday, March 01, 2007

I haven't used my old Kenwood universal remote for several years because it was very complicated to program and use. Hoping this Harmony remote would be easier to use I was pleasantly surprised to find that virtually all the programming is done for you by going online to Logitech's Web site and downloading programming for your specific equipment directly into the Harmony via a USB cable that comes in the box. Not only that but I was really blown away by the fact that I didn't have to program the remote with macros in order to coordinate all my equipment.....that's done for you too. I imagine this has been the state of the art for most universal remotes for a long time but it's new to me. Although I'm convinced this remote is capable of doing everything I need I have been unable to teach it how to toggle between AM and FM bands on my A/V receiver even though I've successfully trained the Harmony remote to learn other key commands from my individual remotes. I haven't found anything on the Logitech site that helps me and I haven't found any documentation that tells a customer what buttons on the Harmony correspond with commands from my component remotes....it's been trial and error in some cases. I also experienced what appeared to be a completely dead remote where none of the buttons functioned. I resorted to removing the batteries and reinserting them and this brought the remote back to life and I didn't need to reprogram. With a little more research and usage I'll learn how to toggle my AM and FM.

If you have TiVo / DVR

Written By Matt, Fairfax, VA on Thursday, March 01, 2007

This is the best universal remote I have ever owned. I have set up my TV, DVD Theater System, DirecTV TiVo, PS2 and GameCube all with this remote (without looking up and imputing component codes like other universal remotes). Set-Up will take a good bit of time (mine took about an hour), but once you have it set up to your liking it is extremely easy to use. Just to give you an idea of what this thing can do, when I press the "Watch TV" button it turns on the TV, turns on the TiVo, turns on my theater system, and it even changes the input on the TV and the theater system for picture and sound. The buttons layout on this remote is not confusing like some other Logitech remotes. Don't waste your money buying more expensive remotes. Get this one!
