I have been a Harmony One user for a number of years. My remote is starting to have buttons that are hard to press, so I am looking at either upgrading or finding a replacement.
I have all of my main devices on IP, so one of the questions I have is whether:
1) Get a new(used) Harmony One and be happy (cheapest)
2) Upgrade to the newer Harmony Elite and incorporate the Hub so that I can control from my iPad(s), mobile as well as device
3) Move to another system like the URC and go through a learning curve
My main complaint with the Harmony One is that the line of sight IR does not alway hit every device in my cabinet - I have about 8 devices to control (Pioneer Kuro Plasma, Sony PS4, Oppo 105D, Dish VIP722, Logitech Transporter, Integra DHC-80.3 processor, Xbox 360, Wii, Velodyne DD-15 sub). I do have to hit the "help" button and repoint about 25% of the time. I like the task oriented nature and am pretty happy. I do not have a lot of "smart systems" in my home - no Alexa, no Nest, etc. I will be upgrading a few elements of the system - Anthem AVM60 to replace the Integra DHC-80.3 and possibly an LG OLED screen.
Any suggestions on approach?
