So my Harmony 880 has kicked the bucket. It's out of warranty, and the volume up button doesn't work anymore. Since I have to get a new remote, I've been thinking about what I should replace it with.

I need something that has actual buttons instead of a full touch screen (the wife doesn't like full touch screen).

Should I get another Harmony 880, or should I change to another remote? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

MX-900. My wife adapted to it very quickly from an 880.

Look at the Harmony 670. It has actual buttons. If you use a DVR or DVD player a lot, the transport controls are all conveniently located in the center around the OK button.

If you stick with a Harmony remote you won't have to spend much, if any, time reprogramming it. The software allows you to replace the remote and transfers your devices and activites.

Have you spoken to tech support about it? They might replace it anyway even if it's out of warranty.

Haven't tried calling. It's over 2 years old, so I figured there was no shot of getting it replaced.

I think if I'm sticking with Harmony, I'll just get another 880. I like the features it offers. I don't need the RF stuff of the 890.

Since you have nothing to lose, you might want to try and see if this will fix your volume button.

That is very interesting. I have had my harmony for about the same amount of time and MY volume up button has too ceased to play nicely. I have to really mash it to get it to work. I wonder if its a defect. I will be calling logitech today to see whats up! I love the Harmony setup so I cant imagine going with a different brand. Ill let you know what they say.

Darn I wish I saw that fix before I won a 720 on ebay But I'll try the fix anyways, and if it works, I'll sell it on ebay!

Amazon has a refurbished 880 for $99.99.

I'm on my second 880 and buttons are now failing on this one also, I won't be buying another one. I will be trying an AR.
