I'd get one if I didn't already have a 680. Definitely a good deal for a harmony. There is a Remote Control forum on AVS so yeah you are a bit off topic posting it here but I doubt anybody really cares.

Yes, it will work with the 360.

So that is good that it will work with the 360. Does anyone actually have this remote? If so, do they like it?

I have it... have had it for a few years now and have bought 2 as gifts and have a friend

who's bought himself one.


They're great remotes... they can do everything the newer Harmony remotes can, only they

don't have the (battery eating) full color screen.


The real benefit comes in if you have surround sound and want to easily use that for your

audio instead of the TV speakers. If all you have is a DVD player, a cable/sat box, and a

TV, it's not really as useful IMO if your cable/sat remote can control the others.


Also for the WAF if the wife can't stand all the tech stuff.


Works with my 360 Elite too FWIW.

What the heck. I had the link open, hit refresh and the price jumped from 50 to 84.

I got one at Sam's for about $90 a few months ago, and though it was OK. Not the best for working with my DVR at the time (X360 as MCE extender), and my 2004 Pioneer recever was not getting along with it very well. The x-box issue was mainly due to the wird issues that it was having with the Guitar Hero controller plugged in. Just got a H/K AVR 147 (worst remote EVER!!!) so it's going to get re-programed tonight.


Now, that bing said, it is a very powerful remote. I wish it would actually have a "Game" button and a little more customization on the tack, but you can program about any complicated thing into it if you take the time. It also was compadible with just aobut every thing I had sitting around, but would be even nicer if it had Blue Tooth to be able to wake up the Wii.
