Okay...so lots of moving parts here but here we go:
Xfinity is switching me over from my old (Motorola) boxes to the new X1 platform this evening. I also just purchased a new Harmony Ultimate remote which I am waiting to configure once I know the exact model specs on this new X1 cable box. I currently have a media closet about 30 feet away from my TV with all components concealed inside. So as you can imagine based on this described set-up...my Kinect is still tucked away in it's original packaging until Monoprice, PDP or whomever comes up with an extension cable (that's another thread I know).
What my question is I guess...for those of you with Harmony remotes (Ultimate, 900 or whatever) do you REALLY benefit from the snap functionality of controlling your cable TV viewing through your Xbox One? The switching capability is so easy with a Harmony remote, that I wonder if I'm really going to want to feed an HDMI cable from the X1 directly into my Xbox One as opposed to my receiver. Not to mention that I currently do any of this switching (or snapping) via voice commands anyway since my Kinect can't be hooked up yet. And I know this may sound like a very noobish question, but is it possible to have 2 HDMI outputs from my X1 cable box so I'm running one HDMI to the receiver AND a second to the Xbox One?
Thanks in advance...I'm fairly new to all of this and I knew this would be the place to come to.
