If I didn't "need" feedback, would the 1100 (or any Harmony) be able to set activities to do the following:
1) turn on Grafik Eye scene 1, turn on projector, turn on AVR, set correct input on AVR, turn on bluray, possibly engage motorized sled for anamorphic lens (it also has an IR remote)Yes - this is what it does when it starts an activity. Youc an add commands to the start up of the activity like engaging your lens.
2) change Grafik Eye to scene 2, play movie (with volume stillk mapped to AVR)Yes. It isn't as simple as programming it to work that way, but it isn't hard either. I have my 1100 set to turn my lights to a specific setting on "play", "pause" and "stop".
3) change Grafik Eye to scene 3, pause movie (with volume still mapped to AVR)
4) change Grafik Eye to scene 1, turn off AVR, turn off BluRay, turn off projector, engage sled to "out" positionIf you want that to happen on "power down" you could add in the light and sled commands to the power down sequence.
Sorry for the lengthy questions. I am still looking for the best solution for my theater. I looked at the RTIs and Creston, but their units seem a little dated and that you need either a dealer or a rocket scientist to program them.
Ultimately I might have to go with a 7" tablet and use iRule, but I would really like hard volume and play/rew/ffw/pause, buttons.
I have also looked at the Harmony One and am not 100% opposed to it, even though 99% of those hard buttons wont ever get used.
The RTI T3 looks like a neat compromise, but again...I worry about programing it and the possibility of a dated technology.
