    Is it backlit   (9 Answers)

    Thx for answers to my other question. Another thing I wonder is it is backlit, so I can see the buttons in the dark bedroom? Thanks

      Answer

      100%, every button is backlit, as well as the LCD screen. When you pick the remote up or push a button, the backlight comes on. When you set it down or don't push a button for a few seconds (entirely customizable, from 1 second to minutes) the backlight automatically shuts off to conserve battery life.

      will this work in place of a roku remote?   (6 Answers)

        Answer

        This will work with any Roku device that has infrared remote capability. I have a Roku 2 XS that can use either Roku's Bluetooth remote or a Roku infrared remote. The Harmony 650 works with my 2 XS perfectly. The Harmony 650 will not work with the Roku Stick because it uses an RF (radio frequency) remote. If you look up Roku on Wikipedia, you can see a chart that lists what type of remote capability your particular Roku has.

          Yes. They say on the controller configuration app to make sure you're running the latest version of the OS on the Apple TV. I am and it controls my Apple TV great. It's nice having one control for everything.

          Are there buttons for everything common?   (8 Answers)

          I was looking at it carefullly in the local B.B. and I couldn't see buttons for thing like: Return (back), Recall (previous channel) CC or the vrious 8 devices. The Sony 8-Device unit has these at less than half the price. What gives?

            Answer

            Yes, it does. The reason you didn't see the buttons for Return (back), Recall (previous channel), etc. is because they're symbols. To go back to the previous channel you were watching there's a horizontal arrow that hooks around. In order to see the devices you have to program them into the remote first. Read my review dated 5/1/15. The Geek Squad guy programmed mine for me when they came and hooked-up my new Sony TV. He explained how everything worked and what I could and couldn't do with it and the only thing I can't do is operate my PS3 with the fast forward, reverse buttons, etc. He explained to me that I would have to use the controller, but as far as turning it on and off, i.e., the PS3, I can do that. The remote is seriously the TRUTH!!! As far as the cost is concerned I didn't spend over $60.00 for it, which I think was great. They do have a more expensive one though that may be a bit more sophisticated. I can operate this universal remote exactly like I operated each remote I had for the individual devices I had. It's great and you won't go wrong if you purchase it. Believe me it's worth it especially if you have to use 3 different remotes like I did before I brought this one.

              The above components are the backbone of a 9.2 + Atmos system. I want to control the four components indicated with the Harmony 650. Is there a way to determine, in advance of purchase, if the 650 can do this?

                  Does it know what devices are already on?   (11 Answers)

                  Does this remote remember what devices are already on? For example, if I am watching TV and I decide to play my Xbox One (and hit the Xbox or Gaming Programmed Activity) does it realize the TV is already on and just change the input or will it run the command to turn the TV on, which turns the TV off?

                    Answer

                    It remembers what the device settings are for the current activity. Example: Current activity is watch tv. Your TV is on, the cable box is on, the av receiver is on. When you select the "play xbox" activity, it will (if programmed appropriately) change the tv input to the right input, turn off the cable box, switch inputs on the av reciever and turn on the xbox. When you select off, it will then turn the tv off, the reciever off and the xbox...but it will know that the cable box is already off and not toggle the power

                      Answer

                      Yes, and if you have any more compatibility questions, go to the Logitech website and look for the Harmony remote support. They have a tool that can be used to look up the compatibility of devices with the harmony remote.
