Or are you saying that is just changes the remote so that the buttons are now all related to movie watching options?
That's exactly what the harmony does. Turn on all devices one after other, and remember the context, so if volume needs to be increased, it would talk to the sorround bar ( or tv, depending on your configuration), and if you need to change the channel, it'd talk to the cable box,and so on. I've been using the harmony 900 since 3 or 4 yrs,and it works great.
I have a harmony 650 that I recently bought, but not using it.let me know if you'd be interested in having at about half of the online price + shipping cost.
