Well I bought two Harmony 650's today and when I tried to set up the first one it went all wrong.
My Vizio and TWC Cable box might be OK but my Pioneer VSX 1020 would not function at all.
I had to manually add in the Power Toggle to just get it to turn On & Off.
I called Support and the guy tried to help me but said that he would need to escalate my problem to the higher up Software Experts!
Though my Pioneer 1020 should be in the database every function had to be manually learned.
So at this point it's not functional and see what tomorrow brings! AARRRGGgg!
UPDATE: I just removed all devices and activity and tried to load my 650 from myHarmony.com.
It got all the way to the end and said that it could not Sync up with my remote, dis-connect the USB, wait and then reconnect and over and over it said that it could not Sync.
That was probably what was happening with the Remote Software Setup 7.7.0 and even though it showed completion it really did not and thusly
when I went into IR Learn all of the items labeled database and should have been loaded, I had to do manually with my pioneer remote.
After escalating this and figuring why the Sync is failing hopefully my 650 will function correctly.
I can already tell that going through 20 screens to get to Surround Fields, and change inputs, etc could be a pain when it is already right there on the face of my Pioneer remote.
Unless I can change the order and put my most common tasks used forward in the pages.
Is the Harmony One easier for this.
Though I could put the 4 Sound-field buttons located at the bottom of my Pioneer remote to the 4 color bars on the 650.
How easy is it to do this...
Thanks..I guess that I have a big learning curve.
I am glad that I did not open my other 650, I may be returning it.
Was it so bad to have numerous remotes?
