I own a Harmony H659 and it has worked great. I bought mine at thenerds.net for $120. Worth every penny.http://www.harmonyremote.com
It has a huge WAF (wife acceptance factor) with the "Play a Movie, Watch TV" type buttons.
The setup was painless and my whole system, with 2 game consoles, DVD player, HD cable, PVR, cd player, receiver, tv, and vhs - this one remote handles them all with ease.
I can't recommend it enough. The form factor works great and the buttons are all where they should be. I took my 7 remotes and put them in a box. This is the only one I need.
But don't take my word for it. Read about it here. http://www.remotecentral.com/sst659/index.html
