I'm thinking of upgrading from a Harmony Touch to an Ultimate. Just wondering about placement of the Hub and IR blasters and if what comes in the box will cover me.

I have an open entertainment center with 3 shelves. AVR is on the bottom. Xbox One and Xbox 360 slim on the next level which both often don't turn on with my Touch. Apple TV and Satellite box and two non-IR consoles on the next shelf. TV is on the wall above.

Will the included Hub and IR blasters be able to cover all of this? Any potential problems?

Samsung UA55HU9000, Klipsch Quintet 5.1, Onkyo TX-NR515AE, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U. Plus a bunch of old consoles.

As far as the Hub, the two included mini blasters should cover the areas the Hub cannot cover. You can also buy a mini plug splitter to add more mini blasters if needed. Posts on page one contains a Q&A that covers most questions and which plug size to get..


Are updating the Touch to use it with the Hub which will give you the RF control like the Ultimate for about $99 or getting the Ultimate Home remote. I have the Ultimate and the also the Touch which I upgraded to work with the Hub. The Touch with the Hub is almost the same as the Ultimate minus a couple of areas.

My meager set up
Denon AVR-X4000, Emotiva XPA-3, Panasonic DMB-BDT360
Klipsch RB-81II, RC-52II, Boston Acoustics Micro 120s

The 360 will always be a problem. It needs a dedicated blaster right on top of the port or at least really close to it. Others should be ok.
