Cool remote, wish I had the set up that would justify a remote like that, for now I will keep using the kids just like my dad did :lol:

Right now, I've got a remote that controls my TV/Dish Network DVR, a remote for my XBox 360. and a Bluetooth remote for my PS3. If I could find one remote which could take all of those thing, I would be a happy man. Heck, I'd be happy if it could work my TV, DVR, and 360.

It'll work with everything except the Bluetooth for the PS3. I believe the higher end Harmony's will work with the Bluetooth

I bought a Harmony H628 about a year ago when Sams Club clearanced them for around $40, and even the wife loves the thing :)

I think they are too expensive, but damn, I would buy another one ;) I am eyeing the 676 ( think that is the one Sams has now ) at Sams Club for around $80 right now for upstairs. Some crap about needing to pay for the new staircase, kitchen cabinets, etc is not looking too good for me getting that right now :)

I absolutely LOVE the internet setup for them! Controsl my old crappy regular 32" tv, ps2, dvd player, and onkyo surround system without a hitch!

i HIGHLY recommend Harmony remotes! I still think the prices are too high, but isnt everything now a days.
