So before my post, you could get a 950 from the UK for $100 less than an Elite from the US? I need to brush up on my maths. Obviously a US 950 is going to retail for less than a US Elite. But that...

Try EFCs 00239, 00078, 00077

If using EFCs turns out to be impossible, try TV setup codes 12506 and 11599

It's certainly worth a try. It does appear to be a UEI-made remote like the older models and apparently uses at least some of the same codes and procedures.

None of my streaming devices would reach 1080p on Amazon until my ISP upgraded their service to well above 12Mbps. 13 is definitely on the edge for Amazon, especially the way their apps very...

Just say No. But keep in mind that Logitech just pushed out a bad firmware that has temporarily broken lots of things. So you may want to wait until that's all sorted out.

Why this instead of an Elite? It's identical besides having no hub and costs more than a US Elite. Makes no sense. Just get an Elite and leave the hub in the box and occasionally use words like...

Ouch! My system is similar to yours, and I did it with RF remotes for $50/room a few years ago.

The Harmony's will work fine.

Any universal should be able to mostly control PS4 via HDMI-CEC if your TV has that capability. Test with your OEM TV remote first to confirm. Since you're looking at a $500 remote, I assume you can...
