I have looked around but really havent seen much in the way of new remotes being shown at CES this year.

Anything new or interesting from Harmony or URC around the corner that I may have missed?

In their quarterly earnings conference call, the interim Logitech CEO stated there would be updates to their remote lineup in the coming months.

Thanks for the link. That 30% drop in sales about equals the 30% drop in features (no more one-button macros, way fewer devices, no way to adjust delays or repeats, no way add more commands to activity macros, no way to rename devices, no way to change the order of activities, no way to even change the backlight time). The similarly priced older models had all these features, but the new models don't. All they've done is spend a ton of money creating new web based software geared toward complete morons. I hope they got the message from consumers that we don't like paying more for a whole lot less functionality. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised by their new offerings because harmony used to be a pretty good product.
