Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Charles has any copy protected content. Since you use a Prime, I assume that you do. So ServerWMC is less than ideal. You may end up not being able to watch...

Sanoxy=Ortek=Adesso. They are all absolutely identical and use the Ortek codes I said.

I don't think a diplexer will work. I posted all Charter frequencies several weeks ago in this thread if you want to have a look.

I have one of those I don't use. If you're interested in a deal, PM me. Of course all MCE codes are known and can be added to many universal remotes. What controls are missing from yours that you see...

On Harmony, the only other option is to add all possible commands for all apps to a single activity. That would be very awkward to use and would require lots of paging through screens. Why are...

I own all 3 and had a PS3 until recently. DVDs look exactly the same on all of them, which I consider only average. It would be a stretch to call it "very good". I've always considered Sony's DVD...

Hippo remote does exactly what you want out of the box and has "profiles" for each app on your PC as well as the ability to send any key combo or remap any keys in context. I use it for Windows,...

5. Contrary to the description, that's an Ortek dongle, not Windows MCE or Microsoft Media Center PC or any other RC5 based protocol. So be sure to pick "Ortek" "VRC-1100" or "Adesso" "ARC-1100" from...

In case you used Sequences (short macros within activities) on your 890, realize the 900 can't do sequences at all. If you stick with Harmony, you'd be better off with another 890, IMO.

I second the smartphone app recommendation. Much more bang for your buck, reliable and far more features. But if you must get a small physical keyboard, avoid RII and its clones. I've had a couple,...

Actually, the 3200 is nowhere near the OP's $100 requirement. For that price, the OP will have to accept quite a bit more bells and whistles. Even the 5200 doesn't meet this threshold. While inferior...
