Here's my setup:
Sony Bravia LCD TV, can't remember model, but it's about 3 years old
Toshiba HD-DVD player, can't remember model (I know, I know. I haven't updated to Blu-Ray yet because I only own standard DVDs, but I will probably swap this out for a blu-ray sometime in the next 6-12 months)
Budget: Would like to stay under $100, which from what I've seen, with only receiver/comcast/dvd(or blu-ray), I should be able to do so. I would maybe go as high as $150 if I need to to get a remote that is VERY easy to use(more on that below)
I have no line of sight issues, everything is in a BDI entertainment center.
I don't really have any other requirements, but I will say in looking at the Harmony remotes, I've noticed a lot of them have "action" buttons(not sure if that's the right term) where hitting one button basically does everything to get set up to watch a DVD/Blu-Ray, or watch TV, etc. My girlfriend is not very tech savy, so 2-3 "one button" thing like that that she knows she has to press to watch a DVD or whatever would be very helpful.
I also like the idea of a rechargable remote, one that can be put in it's cradle overnight(or every couple nights) and be fully charged, but not if I'll need to replace the rechargable battery often.
I suppose I'm leaning towards a Harmony remote(also love their setup, just connect to a PC, enter components, and go), but am definitely open to other alternatives. I've read that some Harmonys don't last very long?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
