No problems for me on the US site. Haven't tried the UK site lately.

Have you tried creating a new account? You should be able to create one and upload from your remote to start back where you left off. You could also try RMIR instead as it doesn't rely on ez-rc at all.

It started working again a few hours later, must have been a temporary server issue.

For me, not having a device state is the only drawback from the harmony, everything else this remote wins. You can do more things with this remote than with the harmony, you just need to play around with the software, you can customize everything. I used to have a Harmony remote, and I will not go back. The Xsight is like an Android not so intuitive but powerful, and the Harmony like an iPhone very user friendly but limited customization.
Funny, I just said this same exact thing to a friend of mine last week. The Harmony line should be called "i remotes" because they are idiot proof and the Xsight line should be called "A" Sight, because like Android, they are more for the techie that enjoys tweaking and need very little hand holding.

I purchased 4 units and they are 100% new and work perfectly. Best deal I've gotten on remotes. ~$ 130.00 for 4 brand new remotes. I sold my Harmony One for $ 125.00.
