Its not very helpful when someone gets on here and rambles and complains but isnt specific and quits replying to questions.
Well, *I* didn't think my reply was goofy......??
My point all along has been this, which I've explained above several times:
1) If you have ANY Logitech Harmony Remote, and HAVE already established an account for that remote USING THE 7.7 SOFTWARE, then you can still (AFAIK) log in to your Harmony account and continue to use the software to update/change your remote.
2) If you DO have the above mentioned account, you can also (AFAIK) REPLACE the remote AND/OR upgrade the remote, i.e., replace a 650 with a 700, or upgrade from a 700 to a Harmony One or Harmony Touch, continuing to use the software.
3) The most important point I was making was that starting sometime, I believe, in October, anyone attempting to create an account (see models below) with the version 7.7 software on their computer WILL NOT be able to do so nor will they be able to use the software to program their remote. Models affected for sure are the 300, 600, 650 and 700. Other models may be affected as well. Owners of those NEW remotes without a previously set up account using the software will be FORCED to use the myharmony.com website, and with thus be robbed of many of the detailed macros and other tricks that those remotes are capable of.
I think it's a crying shame, and Logitech has once again shown total disdain for their loyal customers, new and old.
I'm hoping this explains things clearly, and I hope that this reply was quick enough to satisfy some board members.
