Our take on the Logitech® Harmony® 880

The Harmony 880 universal remote lets you easily control even a sophisticated home theater system. Built-in rechargeable batteries and a charging cradle mean you're never stuck with a dead remote. A color screen makes icons and labels easier to read. Best of all, Harmony's innovative Internet-powered setup makes programming your remote a breeze.

The Harmony 880 universal remote lets you easily control even a sophisticated home theater system. Built-in rechargeable batteries and a charging cradle mean you're never stuck with a dead remote. A color screen makes icons and labels easier to read. Best of all, Harmony's innovative Internet-powered setup makes programming your remote a breeze.

Just connect the remote to your computer with the supplied USB cable and go to the Harmony Remote website. Answer a few simple questions about the components you have and how they're set up. When you're done, your remote's programmed — just like that. The site remembers your setup, so reprogramming the Harmony is easy, as well. Just add the new components, delete the old ones, and download your new settings.

"Activity" buttons on the remote give you intuitive one-touch control of your system. For example, to play a DVD, just press "play DVD." The remote instantly evaluates your system, turns on or off the appropriate components, selects the proper settings, and starts the DVD player. The Harmony 880 is versatile enough to not only control your home theater components, but even peripherals like light dimmers and curtains.

This is too expensive for what you get.... but is addictive once you get it up and running. Procuct support was very good & this a considerable plus.

Features

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.

Setup: The Harmony Remote Activities are configured through unique Web Wizard tools on HarmonyRemote.com. Using Logitech's Smart State Database of electronic devices you can easily customize the remote to your system. The database, together with IR learning, ensures support of all infrared-controlled devices made by any manufacturer, including TiVo, HDVCR, 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.

Lithium-ion Battery/Recharging Docking Station: The Harmony 880 includes a removable rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, which provides up to a one-week charge under normal use. The remote comes with a docking station that keeps the remote fully charged. Because the docking station is horizontal, it allows the remote to be used while charging.

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 Buttons: The Harmony Remote is equipped with Smart State Technology Activity Control. You can 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'. There are eight activity buttons.

Interactive Multi-color 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 you have a problem completing an activity function, the help button will guide you through the fix using the interactive multi-color display.

Flash Memory: The settings are stored in 2MB of non-volatile flash memory so they will never be lost, even when changing the batteries.

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