Yes way, and no other remote that I know of, because I never had to try another. My One works sooooo well!!! If the site goes away I will not be happy at all.i bought my first harmony because of reviews in Sound&Vision, HomeTheater magazines and a need for my fiancé to be able to operate my AV setup. Didn't want to spend ~$200 but it turned out to be the best $200 I ever spent. I hope someone takes it over and continues the site as well as maybe better manage it.
Some years back (when I had a real job and good pay) I had bought a Phillips Pronto remote that cost near $1000. This was before Harmony ever started. It was a total "B" to program! Needed the actual codes to manually do it. Oh, it was an amazing remote once programmed, but a pain to update when you changed equipment! You actually needed a certified pro to program it (they even had classes and certifications for that).
Then I bought the Harmony 1000, and WOW! A few simple clicks and it was done! Sold the Pronto and never missed it.
But then having mostly touch screen became a pain (especially with a laggy, unresponsive AT&T UVerse box!), and I bought the One, and have loved it ever since. It is absolutely the best remote out there, easy to use, simple to program.
I've tried others every so often too, MX, Universal Remote, etc. But not even mega buck Crestrons can compare for the home user, and the price. So it will be a flat out huge tragedy if Harmony disappeared!
