Harmony One RF rumors? - Page 4

post #91 of 119
I guess there is still no word on a possible Harmony One/Two with RF support.

Hey Logitech.......you really dropped the ball on this one/two.
post #92 of 119
aw ****,

i thought that the "harmony one advanced" here in oz was RF capable but i think it's just a stoopid 're-branding' name...
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/re...=4708,3898,370

I can't believe they don't have RF as well as IR on one of their top-notch remotes... Heck even the older 890 did....
Unbelievable....
post #93 of 119
Yeah! Are they on the verge of anything new? I'm in the market but i don't really like their current offerings.

Any more detail? Model no. etc?
Is that date for North America only or Worldwide?

Cheers,

I don't have any more details other than the date, and that the Harmony 670 is also receiving a makeover (body shape like the One, but no touchscreen). And the date is at least for the US, no mention of worldwide.

I'd be suspicious of anyone that spells the state capital of CA with more than one 'e'.

Perhaps it's the Harmony H900 which was recently granted FCC approval along with it's base station
post #100 of 119
that would look about right, wouldn't it?

how much do you think those are going to go for jim?
post #101 of 119
Hmm still quite some time before it's actually in Aussie stores I reckon.
Think I'll just proceed with the current king in approx. 1-mth....
But thanks for the "tid-bit", always nice to know!

What's interesting is the test report seems to indicate that it's ZigBee, not ZWave.

It looks like Logitech might have switched camps.

Since the RF4CE consortium merged with the ZigBee alliance a few months ago, this might be a very interesting remote.

That's funny, I never noticed that before. More details: the remote is the Harmony 900, is coming for between 349-399, and will have dedicated colored buttons for blu-ray players.

cheers

nope, a few close friends saw it behind closed doors in the last few weeks

fair enough, keep the snippets flowing if you can!

CNET has a review up for the Harmony 900. Looks like what I have been waiting for.

Faaark, as I freakin expected, not available to the technological back-water that is Australia... Home sweet home...

Just get one sent over from the US as I did with the 1100 and RF receiver.
post #113 of 119
I don't want one that badly, one's got to be a logistics engineer and prepared to put up with the risk involved to take that route
post #114 of 119
Never had a problem.
I've even had full speaker systems come over with out a problem.
Look HERE they will do it for you.
post #115 of 119
Ha interesting,

I've never come across a US-based retailer that would ship to Australia! (Except for Mac retailer OWC)
Then again there's always the issues of; returning if faulty, & costing slightly more than a local purchase.*
Apparently it 'will' be available to Australia, when? God only knows!

*tis not always the case, often cheaper i imagine, even with postage.
post #116 of 119
hmmm... odd.

I know there are 900 beta testers in Ozzyland.

I guess testing and marketing are two different things

just an FYI, the reason the 890, 1000 and 1100 were not available in australia was rf frequency/licensing issue. they created the 1000i and 1100i that were IR only for australia.

the 900 uses the ECNet RF protocol and is NOT subject to the same restrictions as far as I know. Given that there were beta testers in Australia, I expect it to be on sale there as well. probably just has a later launch date...
post #119 of 119
yeah so i read, thanks for pointing it out though.

Oh it will be later, have not doubts about that, we
re always much later....
