Back in the 70's I made my own surrounds like this. If you connect L+ and R+ to the terminals of a speaker, you get the difference between the signals, which results in the kinds of sounds normally...

Adjust the repeats down. I can also post the pronto hex with the correct signals if you want. Email it to datasupport@logitech.com and they can add it to your account. I don't use Harmony, but my...

FWIW, I couldn't tell any difference between my 790 and all my other Sony players. None came anywhere near the upscaling on my old Toshiba HD-DVD player. But these are just my general impressions, no...

I agree with Teachsac. In my experience, Sony upscaling has always been average, no matter what the player (standalone, PS3, PS4). I haven't seen an LG lately, but I don't doubt it's better, just as...

I'm not looking to replace my Ceton anytime soon either, but this will at least give us an alternative when WMC eventually goes away. If SD delivers what they promise, I'm taking advantage of my $30...

Very unlikely. But this may light a fire under Ceton, since they had this project nearly done a few years ago with the Q but dropped it.

Correct. No IR on that one. Need blasters or line of sight with base. Could possibly bounce off windows and walls if not line of sight.

Sorry for the mix up.

Sorry, I've given you bad info. Logitech has changed the names of these remotes so many times, I can't keep up.

The top of the line used to be called Home, which is what I thought you were talking...

All Harmony models except the Smart also shoot IR directly from the remote. So local control is no problem without using any blasters or extensions for the TV. 25' should be ok, depending on how many...

I think I would ask for a replacement. It obviously worked for the previous owner at some point (hence the Play Wii activity's existence), but isn't working now. Yet another USB cable might do the...

Mostly yes. Occasionally something slips through the cracks and you'll see copy freely on even a few HBO programs. Why is that even an issue? You have to have a cable card to get anything at all on...

AV Separation mode ON sends video out to 1 and audio out to 2, OFF sends both video/audio to both outputs.

Maybe it was still a little wet the first time. I avoid metal tools on plastic due to scratches and dents. But if you can't get the credit card to work, they'll do the job.

Glad it worked out.

Gotcha. I'm 5 minutes from my Charter office, so it was well worth the trip for me. Saved about $20 month off normal rates.

FWIW, World Fishing got dropped by Charter too.

Many players these days will go to standby, so that should be as good as a screen saver. I think my Sony players do this. Check in the Sony threads to confirm.

Sounds like you need to disable Bravia Sync and other HDMI control on all your devices. Could possibly need a longer power on delay as well.

I got nowhere over the phone either. But I have had good luck when going into the store and talking to them face to face. I think the salespeople in the stores have more incentive and more power.

If it's a Moto tuning adapter, be sure to use a splitter before it rather than using the pass thru. That should improve the signal a lot.

I've never seen a BD player with HBOGO, so I think you're out of luck. Have you considered a Roku?

Latest Sony models are flat top. You're thinking of last year and the year before.
