Quick question on the Harmony remotes. Right now there are decent deals on the 650 and 700 online. I'm looking to get something for my elderly, non technical folks that will be easy to operate and perform reliably for them. I get in to see them a few times a year and will be there in a few weeks and want to take a remote with me to set them up. Their "system" is very simple:
Sony TV (about 5 years old).
Philips (I think) DVD player, less than a year old.
Bose surround system (simulated actually, I only remember 3 speakers). Self contained.
Cable box (Atlantic Broadband)
That's it and the only two things they will ever do is watch tv or watch a DVD. But if there is a change to mash a button and foul things up they will find it.
So, would either the 650 or 700 be a good choice for them? I know, maybe a bit of overkill but I like the screens on both and the fact that they have buttons that say "watch tv" and "watch a DVD"
If not one of these, any other recommendations greatly appreciated. Setting any of them up will be no problem for me, I'm more concerned with ease of use and stability.
