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.

My workaround is to just use the Netflix app under the appropriate profile rather than follow links from Tivo searches/lists.

You just described iRule (ok, maybe it's not very simple, but not too bad). While it seems like a great idea on paper, after you use tablets for control for a while, you may not be quite as enamored...

According to the Lookup site in my signature, both the Google GFHD100 and 200 are compatible with all Harmony remotes.

Harmony lookup says compatible will all models which implies IR. In that case, standard Samsung TV codes (NECx2 7.7) should work except discrete HDMI 4 (only fixed in the 2016 models). With Crestron...

$16 Nevo C2 from ebay gives you close to the same thing minus RF (spring for the $30-$150 C3 to add RF, touchscreen and a cradle), but the software is freely available to anyone. Use the web based...

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...

Weren't extenders kind of hit or miss with Win 10 WMC? Are they working reliably now?

The $16 Nevo C2 is still by far the best universal remote value around. It has the same functionality as a...

As far as I can tell, your Cox remote (and box) is actually RF, and the box has no IR mode available, so a universal remote is not an option. To confirm this, block the front of the remote with your...

My Denon E400 was on clearance for around $300 at the time. Two zone for any input, but no pre-outs besides the sub and no phono. Guess you'd have to get something much more expensive for all of...

My receiver does multi-zone with just one input. Maybe your money would be better spent on a new receiver ($300)?

You'd have to disconnect the HDMI completely to get rid of that message.

$40 for the Dish DVR function is a no-brainer. So much easier and better than analog SD to the Maggie. Record straight from...

If you have a receiver, then just get analog out of it through the headphone jack or monitor outs. I assume you can use HDMI to your TV. What exactly would the analog be used for?

If analog stereo, then any player plus an optical/coax converter ($12) will do fine. If 5.1 or greater, then you have to go back to the 790 era or get Oppo.

Those are pretty much the only SD channels I still keep in my guide. Unfortunately, you can't get any of them on DirecTV or Dish unless you add OTA.
