Advice needed Roomie vs. Harmony Remote

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Finally finish with my dual display theaters (drop down SI screen in front of a 60" plasma) with Marantz pre-amp.

I'm struggling with a universal remote. I really like the IP/RS-232 control options with Roommie but also need/want "hard buttons" of a traditional remote.

Any recommendations? What would you guys do - Roomie or Harmony?

Thanks

Why pick one when you can do both? I prefer the harmony when watching directv and I am ffwd through the commercials all the time. I just prefer hard buttons. For other things like selecting a movie and watching it I like Roomie on the ipad2.

I use Roomie and I'm loving it.

My Harmony is still here though and still works so if someone can do better with that it's available.

I have both and like both for different reasons.

I am using Roomie only now and it is great but I do miss the hard buttons. What swings me to it is that I am using it to control 4 rooms. Being able to "turn off Kitchen" then "turn on TV in bedroom" while on my way upstairs is good.

If you are only doing a single room and want hard buttons I am selling an almost new Harmony 900 in the classifieds for $160 (I would waive the shipping if you wanted it.
