NewEgg pricing has the 880 at $220.00 and the 885 at $179.99

Also, is the only difference between the 880 and the 890 the RF?

Thank you

According to Logitech, there is absolutely no difference between 880 and 885. I bought the 885 and saved $$.

Buy retail.com Has it for $136 right now, but I've seen it there as low as $113.

I didn't realize this forum was even here but now that I do I'll be asking my questions for my 880 here..

I will say that I spent a grand total of 3 hours on the phone with the techs at Logitec today..and now have a remote that works with my A/V system..I will be having to go back in a set up the Toshiba XA-1 to be always on..( to help with the long boot time it has)..but other than learning the controls I now have it is working great...

My new system is as follows

Sony KDS-R60XBR1
Pioneer Elite VSX-74TXVi
Direct tv H20
Toshiba HD-XA1KN
Monster HTS 3600

I'm running everything with Monster Ultra 800 HDMI cables thru the Elite...My initial problem was having the 880 set up to trigger the Elite to output everything thru the HDMI 2 setting on it..My remote wasn't updated to do this...and after several hair pulling hours on my own..I gave up and called the C/S support first thing when they opened...Those folks are some of the best support people around..They stayed on the line and walked me thru it testing everything after they set up my update download...and while doing the actual test on the components making double sure everything worked as it should.Great customer service they give...I'm impressed...

As with the rest of this site..I see you all here are most helpfull as well...and this is just great thing too...

Thanks

Mac

IIRC the 880 is intended for the U.S. market and the 885 is for the European market. I'm not sure, but I think the 885 has (two??) more buttons than the 880 also.

Forgive this novice question, but using the 890 on my samsung 710 projector, the arrow keys to navigate the menu don't work, but instead are mapped to keys next to the lcd (and not very intuitive)

the samsung is listed as an availble pre set - any idea why this would be programmed so poorly, and the best way to deal with it.

On your home page, select Activity -> Customize -> Change behaviour of buttons.
You can map any command to any button you want.

(You can also change the button mapping for device mode if you want, but don't bother too much as you should never need to use device mode).

Careful with that place, mixed reviews on reseller ratings: http://www.resellerratings.com/selle...1.html#reviews

(also note the $18 ground shipping)

Could be ok, but sounds too good to be true.

It functions perfectly here in the US, and I found that having the two extra hard buttons a nice bonus!

I had no problems with them. Of course, you should always factor in the cost of shipping and look at the total deliverd cost. Still, including the shipping, I couldn't find another source with a better price....

Just bought an open box Harman Kardon avr 630 w/o the remote for a great price at CC. Will harmony 550 perform all the functions of the original so that I can setup the receiver or do I need to buy a new remote from Harman Kardon. Thanks

Well, this thread is about the 880, but yes, you can set it up to do everything the HK would do.

Hi all

I started a new post with this question so i apologise for the double post. I have the Onkyo S780 HTiB and I'm trying to have the 880 learn on of the buttons but it's not working. There is a button marked "OR-EQ" on the bottom of the S780 remote that dosen't show up in the device section of the 880 so I went through the learn process (tried raw also) and the dialog box said it was successful. but when I look in the device section of the 880 remote I can't find it. Anyone have this system that can help? Thanks, appreciate it

I just called Logitech for a copy of the Intel Mac Beta, which they (after cautioning me) were willing to supply. However, the email they send me lacks any attachment.

Could someone be kind enough to email me a copy of the universal binary beta? I'm dying to use my new remote!

Thanks,

Adam

I have a Barco 708 with no remote. Does anyone know if the 880 will work with this PJ?

It's listed in the Harmony database, so it "should" work OK. Unfortunately, you couldn't guarantee it though until you actually try it, unless someone else on here actually has this combination.

I also took some pics of my old remote next to my new remote. I'll get them posted here. I also took close ups of the different cradles so people can see them more clearly.

Any updates, I want to call Harmony to get a new one also, but don't want to jump the gun.

If you would like we would be happy to send out an 880 for you to test with your Barco 708.

Feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email.

MakGeek - The remote still looks perfect.

I would say to definitely give them a call and get a new one out. It looks like the problem has been fixed (at least on my remote). One thing that seems to be different is that the battery life seems a little shorter. I assume this is because the display is being driven correctly and maybe takes a little more juice than the broken one.

Also, I still have the old remote. They haven't contacted me to return it yet. I don't think they are even expecting it back. They never gave me any info on where to even send it. They just sent me my new remote, and I assumed they would send a follow up email to verify it was working ok and where to send the old remote back to. I'll probably contact them to find out where to send it to.

Can the 880 handle an address code other than one, I have 2 satellite receivers that are made by the same manufacturer currently one is set to an address of 5 and the other one is set to the default of 1.

It's possible that the Harmony database has the codes already. If not, you would need to teach the 880 each IR command from the sat remote, and you'd have to do it once for each sat receiver. The later is definitely possible, but hopefully the former is available.

If no one chimes in with a definite yes or no, you could call Logitech tech support and ask them.

Just to chime in on this... When I was programming my Dish 721, the 880 setup asked me to point the Dish remote for it at the 880 so it could tell which language/codes to use. This is fairly new and really helpful because I had a LOT of trouble setting up my 676 a while back. The Harmony people were able to sort it out pretty quickly, though, but it had me going for a bit.

So, I can say it works with multiple Dish receivers, but don't know about other brands...
