Which remote to buy?

Looking for a Home Theater handheld (not table) remote to control basic components. New home construction with a HT in the rec room. I have never owned a all-in-one remote, nor am I a IT programmer. My A/V sub has recommended the URC MX-850. Basic components; projector, AVR, PS3, DirecTV, lights HT dimmers, and TBD. The two dominant remote companies is see here is Harmony and HRC. What would you recommend and why?

If you don't want to program it yourself, follow your sub's advice.

Agreed

However, if you are willing to do it yourself personally I would go URC. It isn't rocket science, but it does take some time to learn the basics.
