post #11191 of 11255
Sometimes a good cleaning does the trick. I have had pretty good luck with rubbing alcohol swabs. Enough moisture to clean but not so much it causes damage..

My One is getting old also so I baby it. Neither the Touch or the Ultimate were suitable replacements foe my purposes. I'm hoping the rumored new remote from Logitech next month comes to pass. I just want a One with some upgrades.

What exact areas did you clean? Would like to try but didn't really know where to clean.

Yeah I've been trying to get my self to like the ultimate setup but can't do it yet. I just got a 650 for living room and it just doesn't feel the same. Will be a sad day when have to replace the One!

Around the edges of the buttons that are sticking. Stuff collects and can impact button presses. The moisture can dislodge anything that is impacting the presses. Press and release the buttons while the moisure from the swab is there.

There are instructions on a thorough internal cleaning process for remotes on YouTube.

The replacement I mentioned in my prior post may be the answer for those of us fearing the end of our One's. At least I hope so!!!

Where did you here the info about the replacement for the One? I think a lot of us would be interested in this.

In several places. The closest is right here. Go back one page to the thread just below this one. "The Harmony Ultimate One". I have also seen references in the Logitech community forums.

Here is the most concrete evidence. From the My Harmony remote site. Look at the list on this page of the Remotes and notice the "Harmony Ultimate One" is listed.

Does the One not have sequences? I seem to recall programming some Harmony (maybe a 670) with sequences, but can't find them in the programming interface for the One.

Thanks for that info. If my one dies, I need to know that a good replacement may be available. At least now there is hope.

Guys my brother has been having trouble syncing his Harmony One to update changes I had made in programming. It's been a couple of months since he's tried but again it just says "Communicating" and hangs does not move off of 0%.

He has rebooted his computer, logged out and logged back in, and turned off firewall but still hangs. Any ideas?

I thought about having him create a new account and see if it would sync but if it does that would mean I would have to start from scratch and program it again, correct?

This is going to sound strange, but I've heard some folks reporting the monitor on their laptop disrupting the communication and had good results after moving the remote as far away from the laptop as the USB cable will allow. I don't understand how that plays a roll on a USB connected device, it's just what I heard (in this thread somewhere). I can see how it could play a roll with teaching the Harmony from another IR remote, but not just updating. It can't hurt to try.

Secondly, how is he updating? Local installed 7.x software or the web-based version?
post #11201 of 11255
I'm not even sure he's using a laptop maybe his desktop.

He's using the Windows 7 download but I just sent him a link to try the web version.
post #11202 of 11255
I had big issues when updating my Blackberry and what I found out after many hours was that the desktop software was corrupt. After a clean install, everything worked great.

Give it a try and good luck.

The One has sequences, the 900 does not.

The Ultimate One remote is nothing more than a Touch renamed.

Well that sucks
post #11206 of 11255
But suppose it adopts the form factor of the Ultimate (a minor change from the Touch), then a name change is reasonable.
post #11207 of 11255
What they appear to be doing, while it doesn't satisfy One users, does make a lot of sense. They take the top model (Ultimate) and remove a few high end features, slap a different name on it, and they've got another product at a lower price point with nearly zero engineering effort and no new tooling. This is similar to what they did with the 700 and 650. So if you want an Ultimate but don't need RF, rechargeable battery or the iPhone app, you can save money and get the Ultimate One. But it is a stupid name. It isn't "Ultimate" in any sense of the word, and is nothing like the One.

Are you sure about this?
I haven't seen any evidence either way yet.

Do you have a source for your info or is it speculation? Why would Logitech discontinue and sell off the touch only to rename and reintroduce it? I have heard of companies doing strange things but this makes no sense.

A re-worked Touch with some feature changes might attract some buyers. If it's not reworked, potential buyers of the Ultimate One may as well take advantage of any closeout bargains they can find on the Touch.

I wouldn't be a happy shareholder if it's just a renamed Touch!!

Amazon has a picture of the Ultimnate One on their website, and it is nothing more than an Ultimate without the Hub, or the former Touch which came out befor the Ultimate. They then added a Hub,tilt sensor and a device that vibrated the remote when you press a key to the touch and called it the Ultimate. Hence now the Touch is now called the Ultimate One.
post #11211 of 11255
It still begs the question. Why would Logitech stop selling the Touch on their website? Why is the Touch being sold on BestBuy as a closeout? And most important why would Logitech now reintroduce the Touch as the Ultimate One? Or better still change the name after the product is discontinued? Make sense?

I have seen the picture on Amazon buried away in the comparison section of the 650. Lets wait to see how this thing unfolds if it ever does.
post #11212 of 11255
Maybe because, with the introduction of the hub, the Ultimate looks and acts like a Ultimate rather than a ONE. Pity, because a lot of people still cling to the One.

If you click on the link in that comparison, it brings you to a standard Amazon page for the Ultimate One... which indicates that it is available for pre-order @$249.99 with a March 5th release date:

Hmm they added the skip forward and skip back markings to the fast forward/rewind buttons. I wonder how that works?

Thanks for the posting. Finally confirmation. A tweaked Touch. I didn't like the Touch and don't expect to like this any better.

Logitech/Harmony please wake up. The best thing about the One is the HARD BUTTONS!!!!! I won't even consider a tweaked Touch. Just my .02🎵

Logitech will manage to piss off customers who recently purchased a Touch and will not get the minor tweaks, and disappoint those of us looking for something akin to the One. mad.gif

Yeah but they know there aren't any better options rolleyes.gif

Have you ever seen a URC remote? And it takes an act of Congress to DIY program most of the others biggrin.gif

The better option for me is to continue to use my One and hope it doesn't die. I was hoping that when Logitech introduced this current line a couple of years ago it would provide a natural upgrade from the One/900 line but for me the Touch/Ultimate is a downgrade from the One.

I may try to find a One refurb as a backup in case my well used One fails because I don't imagine we will see a new line of remotes from Logitech for a bit.
