Logitech should have just polished up their "software" that turns a smartphone/tablet into a remote and focused on selling small IP-to-IR/RF devices for connectivity. I don't know if divesting Harmony means, they will be dumping that software as well.
I sure hope not. I still need support and it is web based. This doesn't bode well if they do. I think that they should have let the end user choose between the wizard and an advanced mode. I hate having to go through the wizard each time I want to make a change when I know exactly what I want to do. This is time consuming and clunky.
I am impressed by my H-900, though. It controls everything pretty much how I want it too even though it doesn't support macros. I use it every day. Others in the house use it every day. Not everybody wants to have the remote to their A/V equipment tied to their phone and not everybody has a tablet. I don't have a tablet and really don't want one. I may be old school but I like having a remote on the coffee table so that anybody can control the TV, etc at any time without having to go grab their phone or tablet.
