Bringing everything together with the right remote

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, been doing a lot of reading around these parts in regards to finding the right remote for my setup (Denon 1712, Comcast RNG150, and an HTPC with usb ir receiver) and I think that I narrowed it down to the following:

Refurb Logitech Harmony 650 - $49
Acoustic Research ARRX18G XSight - $70 New or $50 Used
Refurb Logitech Harmony 700 - $64

Let me know some of your thoughts on these, or any others that you may recommend. Thanks for any suggestions.

The 650 is plenty and will be easier to setup and use than the Xsight, especially since you have a cable box with no discrete power commands. Go for the 700 if you think you'll be getting more devices in the future.

Actually went with a brand new harmony one for $100 after a 50% discount. Figured it is worth the extra minimal investment.

Where did you buy it?

Direct from the logitech website. Had an old harmony 520 that has a broken screen so I called logitech and after a brief troubleshooting stint they sent me a 50% off coupon for any harmony remote (no refurbished or clearance). Should be arriving today.
