Yeah it's not real sticky yet, just a little tacky. I'll observe and see if it gets any worse frown.gif

Thanks for everyone's feedback.

I disagree. I think that after a few days the rice is going to get mushy and then not taste good.

I received my refurbished One from Meritline today and it looks like new other than the LCD is definitely not the same as the LCD from the original One. The activity icons are smaller. You wouldn't really be able to tell unless they are side by side though so for $100 it was worth it.

Yep, that's a later model, so it's not Meritline's fault. It's been discussed previously. The icons also have visible horizontal lines much like a bad interlaced image. The effect seems to go away after a second or two (or it could be that your eyes/brain resolves it). As you said, though, it's probably only noticeable if compared side-by-side.

I don't have a Harmony One myself but have setup both my mom's and brother's for them. I have a URC MX-810 which I've had for a few years and is starting to wear out and have been thinking about picking up a Refurbished Harmony One at Meritline. You guys say the newer ones have smaller icons but is it a dramatic difference I have been trying to find where you discussed this earlier. Never have purchased a refurbished remote before do they come with everything like a new one?

A few months ago my brother tried to connect his remote to the server to update it but it kept saying it would take a few minutes but just hung there. I think he finally gave up and don't know if he has tried it since. This will be an issue now because he just ordered a new AVR and I have updated the programing so we are waiting to get the receiver before he tries it again. Some questions:

1. If it still hangs is this a remote or server problem?

2. What happens if a person creates a new account to use with his remote does the old account with all the settings/programing get erased? If so can the programing from the original account be moved to the new account? Guess we were thinking if the remote still hung maybe a new account would fix it.

You will not notice the difference in the icons, and the package should come with everything (remote, battery, charger, and cord). It should come with the software CD but if not just download it from the website.

There were server issues a few months ago when updates were being performed. There are also slowdowns when a new product hits the market and lots of people are trying to do updates. There also tends to be a spike after Christmas when new owners are doing update. No idea if the capacity has been increased, but this is a temporary inconvenience.

The old account is retained, and some users have a secondary account for testing things. After testing the remote is switched back using the "old" account. If you have a new remote, under warranty, there should be no charge for Technical Support to clone your account, but cloning just replicates the problem. Best case is to start from scratch.

1. Don't know
2. Old account stays forever. I have 5 accounts for one of my remotes.

Search is a little difficult in this forum. I suggest you go back and carefully read all 11,079 posts in this thread. I'm sure you will find it.
post #11080 of 11255
Thanks guys I always wondered if you could have multiple accounts for a remote especially a second one for testing!

I assume you will need to use a different username & password but will you need to use a different email if it asks?

FYI, I just received a refurb from Meritline (that I ordered for a friend). The CD did not come with it. Not a big deal, because, as you said, it can be downloaded.

Mccoady,
You can use the same email address. I did for my 4 H1's.

Much appreciated!

Is Meritline's price of $125 the normal price for a Harmony One Refurbished? I read here that the BF price was $100 has anyone seen it lower?

One quick queston. I have an opportunity to buy a nearly new Harmony One from a buddy. I asked him how to basically set it up and he says you just hook it up to the computer and set up an account. He doesn't have a setup CD, so my question is, do I need a setup CD or can you set everything up online? Appreciate any responses. Thanks.
post #11085 of 11255
I believe everything is online now. Go to logitec's website and you can see. Yes they are, right here:

I know the One supports 15 devices, but what is the maximum number of activities? Or is it unlimited, like the Ultimate?

I think the One and Ultimate are limited to 255 activities.

As a general rule I disregard any software that comes prepackaged with any device and just automatically go online to get the latest version.

Meritline has refurbished Ones for $110 today with Coupon Code MLCKP17SNL1.

When i first got my One a few years ago i used the software you had to download.
Then the next time i needed to change the functions on the remote (a year or so later), I used the online software and the look of the on screen buttons changed.
Now ive come to use the online software again but its not as fancy as the online software used to be.

Whats happened to the online software? It looks really basic to what it used to be earlier this year/last year.
Having updated my remote using the online software just now, the on screen buttons have gone back to the old style.
How do I get the different looking buttons back?

There is a software app that runs on you PC and a separate online app. Seems like you are using the online app. You will need to download and install the software app to get the better looking UI, but they are functionally equivalent.

Im using them both and im still getting the old UI.
Im sure the online and pc software used to be different. One was far more powerful than the other and they looked different too.
They are both really basic now, it sux.

On one of my activities, it send the 'Power Toggle' command to my box, but I want to change it to 'Power On'. Im sure i could do this quite easily earlier this year.
post #11096 of 11255
The Logitech Harmony Remote Software (7.7.0) is an app launched on my my and cannot be mistaken for the web browser version. As I said before the functionality is virtually the same.

To change from Power Toggle to discrete Power On requires that these command be available for the particular device. Once this is confirmed, the change is made via review of the Activity.

Well, I took the remote out of the bag of rice today. To my delightful surprise, the remote works very well
post #11098 of 11255
But the real question is, how did the rice taste?
post #11099 of 11255
Does the Roku 3 work with the Harmony One?
post #11100 of 11255
Yes.. I programmed mine quite a while ago and I don't remember the database category. I think it is DVD. All functions (except the RF gaming ones) work perfectly.

Cheers,

Burt
