Just got the 650 from Best Buy. I was debating between the 700 and 650 but it was $65 for the 650 versus $120 for the 700 so I decides the additional device and rechargable batteries weren't worth the price difference.
Three questions, showing off my lack of smarts, so hopefully someone can answer.
#1, I have a Sony TV, a Pioneer DVD, a Pioneer receiver, Scientic Atlanta 8300HD cablebox/DVR, and a Pioneer VCR. To watch TV, the remote turns the cable box, TV, and receiver on. To Watch a Movie, it turns the DVD on, leaves turns on the receiver, the TV, and turns off the cable box. I believe I need the cable box on all the time, no (especially to record shows in the future?)? If this true, is there an easy way to make sure the cable box stays on all the time?
#2, I am creating two activities: Listen to the Tuner and Listen to CDs (that I will use the DVD player to act as a CD player). Is there a way to customize the activity so it says "Listen to CDs" and another activity that says "Listen to the Tuner"? Obviously I will need the first to turn on the DVD player and receiver, the second only requires the receiver.
#3, my kids still watch VCR tapes. Just like question #2, is there a way to create a custom activity that says "Watch a VCR Tape" and have it turn on TV, receiver, and VCR?
And in questions #2 and #3, where will it say each activity... in the display?
Thanks in advance!!
