Would love to hear some further comparisons between your h900 & Xsight
Jalyst, I apologize! I did indeed go MIA. I did the primary equipment/rack/projector/screen install in my HT, as well as remote programming, Cat6 cable termination, etc., plus my son's 1st birthday was last week, and that came with obligatory family visiting, so my abilities to experiment and post were spotty at best!
At any rate, I did not delve into the XSight as much as Drew2K did, so I would most certainly defer to him. I believe with a lot of tweaking I could have become satisfied with it, but the touch pads were too sensitive, and the slider bar to go from page to page was too unreliable for me, so I returned it before I got as far in as Drew did. On more superficial notes, the feel of the buttons made it less-than-intuitive to go by touch only, and the loud click every time you pressed a button grew annoying.
A buddy of mine who is a Nevo dealer browbeat me into trying the Q50 so I've gone that route instead, and while the learning curve for programming is somewhat high, I'm much more satisfied with the Q50 than I was with the XSight (considering the price difference, I had better be!) An aside, it's widely known now that the Nevo C2/C3 remotes are just rebadged XSights, which makes sense since they're all UEI products.
I did not try the Harmony 900. I knew going in I'd miss the macro-ability, and when I went to pick it up from Best Buy they had no RF extenders, so I just bypassed that option.
Anyway, that's my lackluster review. Sorry again I dawdled so much!
P.S. The XSight did do a great job with my DirecTV receivers. So if you want a simpler set up and RF control over those, you can do that pretty easily, and it appears you can even control more than one in the same room.
