Great forum! Just joined to share my experience and learn more...
I bought a Harmony 880 (from $109 DELL deal) and it was delivered few days ago. First, I had the "loose battery" problem, once I saw one "red bar" after an overnight charge. Yes, the base is OK, it is the battery and the charging pins in the housing. I put two layers of felt tape at the bottom of the battery and it works fine now....
Unfortunately, I also seem to have the "washed out" screen problem. Mainly the right top corner of the screen (down to half of the right side) is more "brighter" than the rest. It is very obvious if I am on a completely blue screen. I saw pictures in this thread showing an example of this problem, and mine looks the same. I know that some 880s have this problem and I will wait for a while to call in and get a replacement (to be sure that the new one is better), since this does not effect the functionality.
However, the battery life concerns me. The remote was on the cradle all night. Got 3 bars with no flashing in the morning. With some occasional use and no updating (or connection to the computer), now I have two bars after about 8 hours. Note that I removed the battery and put it back in to see if that would do anything to do screen problem (unfortuantely, nothing). Has anybody else experienced a similar battery problem?
Lastly the clock was wrong this afternoon (it was about 5 hours late). Does this have anything to do with the reboot? If not, can I blame the battery?
It is somewhat concerning that I have to put a piece of tape for battery to charge, have a "defective" LCD and a "possibly problematic" battery all during the first 3 days of ownersip of a remote with $250 MSRP. I like the remote and I am confident that Logitech will replace it when I call.... Just wanted to share.
Now back to more customization
