To the OP, you are a true gentleman. I hate the damn PS3 play controller and I love my Harmony 880. I do not want multiple remotes. If you are a gamer you don't know what the fuss is about, if you are an AV enthusiast with 11 different components in the AV rack, you really don't want another remote.
Thank you again to the OP. It is clunky and temporary, but because you still have to stand up and put the disc in the player, you can turn the unit on at the same time. I will be trying this at home!
