Default Opinions of Harmony One Remote

My Harmony 670 just ***** the bed. It was a great remote and I certainly wouldn't rule out buying another one. I had an 880 prior to this one and it was good, but I ran into the notorious charging problem so many of them had so I definitely won't be getting another 880. I had a 659 before the 880 and it was OK, too, but I don't think it's sold anymore.

So, I'm thinking about the One. I don't need RF so I'm not paying the premium for the 900. My question is, has anyone had any problems with their One stopping charging, like the 880 did? Any other input on the One?

My opinion?

It's a $200 ****ing remote control. The thing should give oral pleasure or something at that pricepoint.

$250 actually if you buy it in a brick and mortar store. Well worth it to me, though, not to have to deal with 3 - 5 individual remotes.

Dear OP,

While I may not have the slightest idea on the subject matter in which you are inquiring, I can assume however, that you are a lazy piece of **** and you need to get off the couch.

Sincerely,

Skip

I bought a learning remote from Radio Shack. It cost me $25 and, surprisingly, does not look like ass and works extremely well.

Yeah it isn't "piano black" (it's silver) but it works perfectly.

Dear Skip,

While you clearly are mentally handicapped, I can only assume that you have your head firmly planted up you flabby arse, since you don't know what a Harony remote is. Please bugger off, bag-lick!

DSM,

Although your witty retort was mediocre at best, I must commend you for your efforts considering the last good thing that came from WI was Barry Alvarez.

I don't have a One but I do have an 880 and it stopped charging on me too. They sent me another one but I am just waiting for this one to die. I got it for $90 so I can't complain too much and it works great other wise.

Kinda hijacking the thread here but: My fathers's birthday is coming up and I am trying to decide between a harmony remote or a sound system for the TV.

They have a very nice 46inch/50 inch something like that Samsung LCD tv. Samsung DVD player with the netflix/ethernet option, and the verizon cable box. My parents need to use a remote for each one. Change input on TV remote, channel surf/Guide with the verizon remote, and dvd (and netflix) controls on the dvd remote. Its a bitch to deal with.

A Harmony remote should be able to handle these things from what I've read, correct?


On the other hand, they still use the TV speakers, and while its not horrible, its lame as all hell. If I were to get a home theater setup, it would probably be a Samsung just to keep brand with the others. Is that stupid? Yes, but I don't care.

The Harmonys are amazing. If my wife can use it then anybody can use it.

Just get the least expensive one (850?) that takes 4 AAA batteries. Buy two sets of rechargeable AAA batteries & a charger for ~$25 & you will probably never have to worry about charging problems again.

I consistently have a hard time convincing people that this remote was worth the $$. Granted, I have the $75 model and would never shell out the big money that the top of the line models require, but it truly is an amazing piece of equipment that anyone who uses their home theater system for everyday TV/stereo use should consider acquiring. It is not just a "universal remote" like many folks seem to think - it integrates the functions of all of your remotes & simply does what you want it to do, including macro commands, etc...

I reviewed the 1100 earlier this year and didn't like it. (http://www.engadget.com/2009/02/20/h...always-better/) I wound up buying a new 510 when my old one died.

I'll probably go with a 900 whenever that dies:

I love how Harmony remote threads bring out the worst in people. Listen, you find me another remote that:

1) All I have to do is tell it what components are in my system and it automatically configures the remote
2) It handles changing all the inputs to the right things to do different activities at the push of a button
3) I can hand it to my mother-in-law and she is able to turn on the TV, stereo receiver, PVR, get all the inputs set correctly and be able to easily figure out how to change volume/channels/go into the guide all after she reads an easy-to-understand "push this button to watch TV, push this button to watch a DVD, push this button to listen to the radio, etc. etc. etc." menu

If there are any other remotes out there that fit that bill, let me know. Last time I checked, there were none, so S T F U and leave those of us who have a little more advanced systems enjoy being able to easily control them with a single remote. kthanx.

Everyone I know with the Harmony One loves theirs. I'm hoping to get one for Christmas.

for what it's worth, my 880 has "stopped charging" like 5 times, and every time it's been a 2 mintue fix that involved either cleaning the contacts, or opening the base and bending the contacts upwards a bit.

actually, the only reason I have it is because a friend of mine bought it, it stopped charging, and he got a free one. so I fixed this one and took it home.

Some of that worked for me for a while, then it just stopped charging all together.
