It should not be available yet. I think I got the European or Asian unit since the plug is of that type. Got it from a friend but don't want to get him in trouble :P

I updated my H1000 few weeks back having the same devices and the three colored shaped labels showed up there as well for my SA 8300HD though they were faded out and non functional :P


But when I tested two other devices for fellow forum members for the four colored buttons they only showed up as text lables so I think it is a matter of whether someone in LGT has updated their database or not

^ What version of software are you using, Freakfreak?

That was before I got the One so I was still using 7.3.2 on my laptop
BTW The colored labeled buttons show up only under the activity but not under the device!!!

I can't get those colored labels for A, B, C to come up in the software, so I guess this requires a 1000 remote then.

Did you check your active buttons? As it turns out those fancy buttons only show up in my watch TV activity additonal buttons but under the actual SA 8500HD device they only show up as A, B, C labels !!

The fancy labels don't show up anywhere in the remote or the software.

Until they come up with a harmony remote that is both IR and Bluetooth, I will never upgrade from my Harmony 550. It's so annoying that I can't control my PS3 (which I use as my Blu-Ray player.

While talking to a Harmony tech today, I asked about the One's "favorite" capability. She thinks it can do about 24, or 4 pages of 6 each. I'd be happy with that. I hope we can get confirmation somewhere.

Can/will you talk with her again and ask:

1) When will it be released? (I know it is late January/early February, but can we get a more specific date since we're so close?)

2) Are they aware of the demand for and/or considering a firmware change to allow for six activities on each page instead of 3? The screen allows for 6 touches per page in other functions, so why limit it to 3 for activities?

I'm sure many of us here would really appreciate you asking if you have access to a Harmony representative. Thanks!

I am also very interested in those questions, especially #1.

I have until 1-31-08 to refund my 880. While I love the functionality of the 880, I'm having a hard time getting used to the small buttons. I really thought I would get them memorized and be able to work my most commonly used buttons by feal, but that just isn't happening.

Except for loosing some space on the screen, I think I would like the ONE better.

Well, Best Buy has it on their website now. It says its backordered and will arrive some time between 2/5 and 2/19 if you order it online. It doesn't appear available in any of the stores near me. I guess this means it should be pretty close to being released.
post #76 of 11255
How does the 'ONE' feel to handle? I like my 670 but there is something about it that leaves the feel of the remote lacking. I think it would do well with a rubberized backing so it did not feel on the verge of slipping out of control. Also just a tad more weight on the front end would be nice. Any one able to comment ?

Not sure but in case the fancy buttons did come only with the latest desktop s/w 7.4 here it is

Ethek:
not sure why you would want the remote front heavy but well it is the opposite as the battery is at the opposite end but I actually prefer it that way
post #78 of 11255
I just downloaded s/w 7.4 but I cant see the a,b,c labels anywhere. Do the only work with the 1000 & one remote, or will they work with the 550 also.
post #79 of 11255
As mentioned before and visible in the picture higher up...
The fancy buttons ONLY show up in that screen. It will not show up under devices but ONLY in the Activity settings under additional buttons.
It will only show the fancy stuff if you actually typed in "A", "B" and "C". I assume the activity must actually be calling for the device that has those buttons.

I am salivating over the thought of getting the new Harmony One. If Bush and congress get their stimulus act together, I will have one.

One question: Will it be possible to clone my 880 commands to the Harmony One? If so, is it really as simple as clicking "Replace Remote"?

Thanks,

Burt

It was almost as simple as that:P the 7.4 that came with mine insisted on me creating a new profile so I had no choice but to create one first and then restart the program only to log in with my old account and replace the remote. All went well from there. BTW if you are keeping both remotes you will need sperate profiles for seperate remotes.

Wonderful! I am now in full salivation mode.

Any idea on what retailer will first get the Harmony One? I have one on back order with Amazon and B&H and saw that Best Buy and Buy.com both allow pre-orders. BB seemed to indicate they expected stock in the next 1-2 weeks, but I don't know how accurate that is.
post #86 of 11255
Does anyone know the official release date? I saw on Best Buy's web site that they were expecting it to arrive Jan 25-30. Has anyone seen any official announcements (or unofficial, besides BB)?
post #87 of 11255
Ordered mine from Bestbuy.com on 1/22 with express delivery and recieved on 1/23. They did and possibly do still have some in stock.

I'd get it from BB, but I don't want to pay tax and shipping. Hopefully Amazon or B&H Photo will ship soon.

Does anybody here have experience with Amazon pre-orders? I placed a pre-order for the Harmony One on Monday (1/21) and the status page says "Estimated Ship Date: March 25, 2008."

Does anyone else have this also for their pre-order? Is it just a wild guess by Amazon on the overall release date because the product is not yet released? Or does it mean that, based on the number of pre-orders, they estimate being able to fill my specific order on March 25?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

If you would like the remote asap, I would cancel your order. Best Buy will receive stock weeks before Amazon. The Harmony One should be at Best Buy retail stores within two weeks.

At least for now, there is no reason to order from Amazon, as they are charging full MSRP. At Best Buy, use this 10% off coupon plus any Rewards coupons that you have.

If you are willing to wait until late March or April, I'm sure Amazon will have a cheaper price. Amazon always charges more for preorders than they do shipping product.
