I don't know if I got a newer revision or something but I haven't heard this rattle at all. I've been messing with it quite a bit and am extremely pleased so far. The only equipment I've not been able to find a code for so far is my projector. Infocus X10. It does have the IN81 and IN82 I believe, but haven't had a chance to check out if those work or I need to manually code it. Either way, it's very simple.
I was the most pleased with how easy it was to program in my Monoprice HDMI switch. The remote had 7 buttons and I just picked a button, pointed, clicked, and repeated. Even if I had to manually program all my remotes, it wouldn't be that bad.
The activities were also very easy to set up and modify. I initially forgot to modify the timing of the activities. So when it took 20 seconds to run one activity, I realized this, changed it to like 0.3 seconds, and was off to the races.
The IR emitter on this is very effective. I can bounce the signal off walls and the tv and it works great. I don't know if the RF on this can be configured to control a Dish 722 or not though. I'll look into it but can anyone confirm or deny this?
One question I do have and maybe it's been answered before, can't remember: What's the difference in a macro and an activity? I went to set up a macro and it seemed very similar to activities.
All in all a very happy customer!!!
