Who knows. But I can tell you that in my market, Spectrum went from horrible to fantastic and back to horrible in the past 5 years. Currently they compress the crap out of certain channels, but...

No Harmonys are really designed to be multi-zone. The last one of those was the old 890 Pro. They're really designed to be one remote per room. You can of course do some additional programming where...

Load the C7 onto your Harmony and pretend it's an E6. All LG's made in the past decade or so share the same codes. So the C7 codes will work fine on your E6, assuming the TV itself recognizes the new...

That remote has MCE codes built in. So either get an MCE IR dongle or and FLIRC dongle, your choice. The OAR can shoot any IR code for any device. As Bryan says, FLIRC is best since you want to also...

Only the Smart Control (aka Smart Home) remote lacks IR. All others have it on the remote, 100% definitive.

You're talking about streaming from Mac to the BDT110. The OP is talking about streaming from the BDT110 to the Mac. That will never happen, even with an Apple TV.

That's also incorrect. Harmony doesn't allow you to add input or power commands. So the OP's frustration is well founded. The only way to add such commands is to fake out the software by learning...

The 880 is not compatible with the hub.

You just need something much thicker so there is too much space between your finger and the screen, like a thick piece of acrylic. You can experiment with a stack of post-it notes to find the optimal...
