been playing around setting up roomie for the better part of a month. maybe about 8 hours invested in the setup. I came from a harmony 1000 to a 1100 to the roomie remote. I was happy with the Logitech in a whole but the amazing screen on the ipad and ipad mini that I already owned was what sucked me in. my only trouble with the entire setup was my panny 65" vt25 tv. I could not for the life of me get the tv to work with ip control or serial. I then threw in towel for a few weeks and bought the ir module. it worked flawlessly and my entire setup is amazing. the fact that the ir module has 3 outputs that you can assign is quite amazing for the price. I have a Marantz av-7005 that is controlled over ip, the oppo bdp-95 over serial, directv over ip and my tv and apple tv over ir. I still have one ir port left i'm trying to integrate my mac mini for plex but I think I will use a different app for that. all and all I must say that the setup was amazingly simple and tonight I will tweak some of my favorite stations to the directv remote of it. the onscreen guide for directv is amazing on the ipad. I can't see myself spending another dime on any other remote anytime soon!
