Sorry to resurrect an older thread, but I'm hoping you guys can help me determine whether what I'm about to try is a good idea.
I am a big fan of Harmony remotes, and have 3 of them in my house (One in the bedroom, 700 in the living room, 550 in the basement). I have Hot Link Pro setups for both the living room and basement (in both cases, components are located remotely from the display, on the same rack actually). In the living room, I have some line-of-sight problems -- there is no place I can put the receiver "eye" to get rock-solid performance without it being too visible. In the basement, I don't have problems, but my wife sometimes doesn't have the patience to maintain line-of-sight during activity start-ups.
Proposed solution: get a Next Generation remote extender (or two) to either replace or augment the Hot Link Pro setups.
1. Is the Next Generation system compatible with the Harmony 550 and Harmony 700? I've done some searching online and seen indications that the answer is "yes" for both, but I'd welcome confirmation from users on this forum.
2. Is the "flying saucer" small enough to be easily hidden behind a TV on a low-profile wall mount? Not a deal-breaker if "no", since my understanding is the range is good enough I might get by putting the saucer down on the equipment rack instead.
3. I have two XBox 360s in my rack, which I would very much like to control independently. My concern is if I end up trying to use the Next Generation on both, will I be sending spurious commands to one or the other? Any workarounds for this?
