I started with the website, similar to Harmonys only much less refined. I was able to get it working just fine. I decided to go with RM-IR to be independent of the Website due the fact that they could remove support for it at any time, thus leaving the remote with no way to program. RM-IR allows feature rich local programming with the ability to back up and restore on a local PC. This was very important to me as I was very familiar with the Pronto line of remotes which has similar local programming and backup feature set. Is it hard to program? Not really. Do you need to put your time in? Definitely. I dislike Apple products because of the hand holding (itunes etc..). I use Android with custom mods. Think of the Harmony as the "iRemote" and the Xsight as the "Android" remote. They are really cheap on ebay and IMHO worth every penny if you enjoy tinkering and tweaking. If you are an "iPhone" guy that likes hand holding and one way of doing things, then stick with the Harmony line, if not give the Xsight a shot, I am glad I did. I hope this helps in your decision.
