Hi, just bought a Zino. Also, have Directv (w/DVR), Panasonic Surround System, and Sony TV.

I would like one remote to drive everything. I like the Logitech Dinovo for its size and keyboard but don't think it would work as Universal for everything. Would one of the Harmonys work to control everything (incl ZINO) while still providing full functionality? Any other recommendations?

I love my harmony remotes. I have an 890 and a couple of the Harmony remotes for xbox 360. They control my HTPC and all of my gear perfectly.

There is no remote that does everything. The Harmony remotes are great for what they are, but you're still SOL when it comes to mouse and keyboard control. Currently, the best you can do is a media center remote plus a mouse/keyboard combo.

I can only agree with doomi. I just bought a Harmony 550 at newegg for $49. Best Buy will have the Harmony 510 for $39 on black Friday.

The only difference between the 550 and the 510 is the number of devices they can control. The 550 can control up to 15 and the 510 5.
