Bryan I have the Harmony 700 and it's been a expensive joke since I've had it
like one day (in a blue moon) it works fine the next few days it acts up I press more help butons on this thing than I would if I had a pile of remotes only advantage is I have the Harmony in my hand and it's allways my powered sub that does'nt have a 12V turn on trigger (I think when the experts at LT set up my sub they messed it up some way).
also I'm at my limit of 6 devices.
I maybe getting rid of one of my farorite DVR HDD recorders (that I don't use anymore) then I'll free up a spot for new device. I haven't had a chance to thoughly look over all the key stroke functions of a HTPC looks very interesting
haven't even tryed out the key strokes w/ my WiFi keybroad).
the HTPC is a major change some for good some not so, not even sure I like HTPC compared to SD recorders either way I have a excellent desktop I'm very impressed.
the ?s I post about a MCE remote is because I mayby reduced to 2 remotes
Bryan my pririoty is to have picture in picture and be able to
preferablley swap PIP my new TV won't do this.
so I am reduced to thinking what channel am I on w/ the primary channel (my SD HDD recorder that dosen't have previous channel) see I have to think what is the swap channel.
I think I need the 2250 Haupage that has a dual tuner but like I say I am still way confussed if I can even swap PIP channels I've got some research to do.
