Ok, in 2008 I got a Harmony 880.
From usage, the buttons are fading, and some are loosing there responsiveness. In addition, the remote doesn't hold the time properly, and when last updating it it failed and I needed to pull the battery to restart it. I was able to get it working, but obviously it's aged.
I looked around, and now all Logitech has are the 650 (would be going backwards), the Smart Control and Touch.
The issue is that it's not just for me, it's for my mother. So, I need something that doesn't change the layout and doesn't have a touch screen or pad.
I was looking at the URC's, but I hate the idea of not being able to update the configuration as needed. Especially because I am slowly replacing components.
Any advise on a replacement that's not too pricy?
UPDATE : Ok, the remote has started to simply not work without removing and re-inserting the battery.
New requirements are as fallows :
Can be programed at home, and has actual buttons.
If possible, I would like to get one that doesn't use a re-chargeable battery pack as I learned that the 880 has been kept in the cradle when not in use at all times.
Obviously want this as cheap as possible. Were maxed out at $200
