It does, but I still like having the dedicated hard buttons. My other concern with this is that I think it will require an extra key press to get the remote back into "activity" mode. For instance: say I'm wathing my Comcast 6412 DVR and I want to go to the "MyDVR" screen. Since there is not a hard button for it, I'd have to hit "Device", then hit the button from the LCD for MyDVR. Then to get back into the 6412 activity mode I'd have to hit the "Activities" button, then the "Watch DVR" LCD key. That's 4 key presses to accomplish one thing.
I programed the "page +" key for the "my shows" key on my 688. This is what I love about the Harmonys, you can program whatever button you want to do what you want. This is the way all universal remotes should be programed, with your computer.
I love my 688. I know a lot of you who had tried the 688 didn't like the key layout, but its works great for me. I guess it just depends on personally preference. :D
