Does anyone know of a good receiver that comes with an activity based remote? I saw that Onkyo makes at least one, but I believe it only has HDMI 1.3. I'm looking for at least 1.4. Anyone?

Thanks.

Can you just get a Logitech Harmony instead? I haven't used one so don't know if it has activity capability.

Certainly could, but I thought I could avoid one more expense if a receiver already came with one.

The new Onkyo 608 is HDMI 1.4. See if it has what you need as far as remotes.

It doesnt' have the activity based remote he's looking for...

A decent Harmony remote can be had for as low as $70.

I got my Harmony 670 for $40 from a Fry's sale last fall.
