So after trying to get the Neeo to control my Shield TV through the Flirc dongle, I'm just going to call it a day and stay with my Harmony Elite. Without a real date on when they plan to activate the bluetooth functionality, it's pretty useless to me if it cant operate the heart of my system. Going to put it in the classifieds later today, if anyone is interested, shoot me a PM. It's the Black Cat edition.

Neeo now supports Wemo. I've purchase a pair of Wemo mini outlets and plan on giving it a try. So far my Neeo remote controls all of my AV equipment which includes a Sony A1e, B&O Beosystem 4, a Channel Master DVR+, a couple of Xantech IR controlled power outlet strips and an Oppo UDP-203 and an Oppo BDP-83 along with a Nakamichi Soundspace 9.

My Wemo mini plugs arrived today. I got them initially setup using the Belkin Wemo app. Once setup I was able to add one as a device via the NEEO app to my system (only using one at the moment). I created two recipes one for on another for off. Works great.

I just read the press release and it is very said. I just bought my NEEO remote for Christmas and now wish I bought a Harmony. I hope they open source it.

They utterly utterly screwed people over. Took that good Kickstarter money from the general consumer to build a company that in turn now won't sell directly to the general consumer.

Way to go NEEO and the worst part of it was how they announced it "hey everyone! You should be really happy for us! We totally took your money and then screwed you over! Isn't that amazing?! You should be pleased for us! This is great for us! (not you, but then we don't give a damn about you) but aren't you so pleased for us?!"

I'm angry and I don't even own a NEEO remote, I very nearly got a couple of sets when there was a deal on and now I'm *really* glad I didn't. It's especially a shame because we're now back with Harmony being the only option again....

I bought mine as a Christmas gift to myself so you can't imagine how upset I am. I knew I should have just bought a Harmony. It is terrible how they are no longer going to support the consumer market. They should at least help the open source community support the remote without directly open sourcing the software. The best thing would be to buy back all the remotes sold in the last the or six months.

That is what I believe Google did when they bought Revolve hub. These people misled us all with fancy advertising,worst part I fell for it.

Man that really sucks, I can only imagine how angry you must feel.

The worst part is, "the people" are the ones that backed them initially and got the company off the ground! And now they're basically giving the finger to everyone except those that can afford Control4. If they did the Control4 deal AND kept selling the remotely directly to general consumers, it wouldn't have been an issue but since they cut everyone off, it's a MASSIVE F-U to everyone who helped get them started.
