remote control suggestions
Hi, so I'm looking for a new remote control for my brother and his wife. His setup is that he has a DirecTV receiver in his closet in the back of the room, then the TV and soundbar mounted across it. So right now he had a Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub remote with the Hub in the closet to control the DirecTV receiver, then the remote controls the TV and soundbar through IR.
Besides turning on the activities (sometimes then too) and controlling the sound through the soundbar, they hated that remote. They hated the touch screen display for the number "buttons", I don't blame them there.
So obviously the next step up is the Logitech Harmony Elite control, since (I believe) that has IR too as well as the hub. I could prob just buy the remote version and upgrade the hub. But they're not that keen on the no physical buttons on that one too. So I'm wondering if there's anything else out there that I'm missing I should be looking at that has a similar setup (a way to control the DirecTV receiver then the TV and soundbar too). Sorry for the long story, just wanted to share their experience with the Elite remote.
