I picked mine up at CC last friday evening. I just went by on a whim. I wanted to look at a display model to see how the buttons felt. At the price they have I just had to get one. They had 3 others on display after I left.

I upgraded from a 659 and like it much better. I tried the 880 but did not like the feel or spacing of the buttons. I like the buttons on the one.

Thanks to squareeyes for all of the work on the favorites icons.

I only have one minor issue. When I setup the xbox360 custom buttons on the touch pad, the buttons on the remote do not match. I set up 12 buttons (2 pages total). The first 4 are the colored XYAB. When I switch screens on the remote, it has 3 screens and duplicates 2 of the colored buttons on each screen. This is not a big deal, as I do not use the remote for the xbox360 except to switch all of the components to the correct settings.

I like this remote much better than the 659. Finally a new harmony with buttons that feel good.

Randy, FYI Just got back from doing the price match at BB. I walked in with a voided reciept for 149.99 from the CC across the street and all the 15 coupon I found in a Slicdeals post (See post #332) so you should be able to put $125 back in your pocket.

All you have to do is have them place a special order. You can give them 20% down and they will call you when they come in. Or, you can take the receipt for the special order to BB, get a price match, and make the purchase and return to CC and get your deposit back.

Take advantage quickly. This CC price will not last long. The 880 is a closeout item at $149. That is where the H-One price is coming from. The error will be found and fixed.

According to slickdeals they are now pricing at $199. $149 seemed like a one day deal.

Not at my CC, today, Sunday. The CSR checked the computer, had none in stock, but showed at $149. I placed a special order, got a receipt, went to BB with my receipt for one I purchased Thursday and got a price match.

Original price $249, 10% off coupon brought it to $224, less price match refund of $94, brings it to $130, less 10% rebate because I purchased before the 1st brings the final price to $108.

I should have played the lottery while I was out. Oh well, maybe the Pats will win and really make my day.

For any other Michiganders out there, the Circuit City in Westland does not have any in stock. I special ordered one and the price was $199, not $149. He checked the stock at the Novi store and said they also had none but there were 5 on special order.

yngdiego, radyoactve,
thanks for your replies. unfortunately no dice. all out of stock in local s.d. cc so san diego bb will not honor their pricematch. did confirm today's price at cc is $199. so i would have saved a whopping $25. that makes it go down a little easier.
after the coupon and rebate i found on forum, plus a $20 bb giftcard and $100 for my old 720, i still got a very sweet remote upgrade for less than $100.

You might want to actually visit a CC store. I called one yesterday and they said none were in stock in all of San Diego. But I went to one store and they had two sitting there on the shelf.

you got it. also rec'd a request for nickHD. i'll include all nick sub channels in the next batch.
also, if anyone has a source for high-res music choice icons like the samples at the url below please let me know. the ones currently for the 880 look horrible when up-res'd on this remote.
here are two samples found on a rc thread (the guy never got back to me, even after another user's "double-ditto")

I called my local CC and they have them for $199. Looks like I missed out on another good deal but I'm sure with in the next 30 days I'll be able to price match it at BB and get a few bucks back.

I just downloaded Squareeyes icons and figured out how to set up favorite channels.... thanks squareeyes, those icons look great.

This remote gets better and better... just about have it dialed in.

One thing I can't figure out is how to delay powering on components. For example, my "Watch TiVo" activity turns on the TV and AVR at the same time. This is a decent power surge, I'd like to delay the AVR turn on by a second or two but I can't see a setting for that and the only thing I find in the Help is related to the remote control delay, not the actual power on command. Does anyone know how to do this?

^ In the device delay settings (more options->Adjust the delays (speed settings). ) there is a power on delay setting which will adjust how much wait time after pressing on to turn on the device.

Picked one up last night (sat) at Ciruit City for $149. The only 2 things sweeter than that price are the remote itself, and Squareeyes logo icons. I abolutely LOVE the remote, and Squareeyes, the icons are great. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Hey Randy,

Sorry that didn't work out but i think you still make out pretty good either way and you got something for your troubles.

I've been so busy I still havent had a chance to get going but i'll have time while i watch the superbowl!

Where is the Harmony One on Circuit City's website? Did they remove it or what?

Also, here in Western Massachusetts I call the local store and they said they will get them in stock next week at $250. One more reason I shouldn't have left California?

The Power On Delay is actually the delay for AFTER the power command is sent. ie the time from when your device turns on until it is actually ready to receive additional IR commands (such as input selections).

I don't think you can set a delay between turning components on, but tech support might be able to do it.

Thanks squareeyes!!! Those icons are incredible and look great on this remote. High Wife Factor... 3 more if you get a chance.

- Boomerang (saw this in another post)
- GamePlay HD (Dish/Voom)
- RAVE HD (Dish/Voom)

This is my first "high-end" remote and I really like it. I was using a learning remote that came with my AV reciever and I was the only one who knew how it actually worked. This one was easy to configure and customize and my wife loves it. All the functions I need were included and easy to move around.

Thanks for all the posts, it helped me decided and get it for $149.99. Thanks Again!

I think we caught the CC team with their weekend bench players on duty. The $149 has gone to $199 and I expect to see $249 tomorrow.

Thanks to those of you who spotted the deal on Sat and shared it. This is one fine remote deal or no deal!!
