Best Yet...good buy...The full functionality of a Harmony remote is there when using the cell phone feature, but getting that app up and properly running has not only proved annoying for someone pretty-well versed in these things but also tedious and time-consuming to actually just grab your phone and launch an app for a single or two missing features from the actual remote....Also logitech recommends to turn off the anynet hdmi option, as this might screw with the remote...i.e. if you turn on your ps4 and have anynet on, it wil turn your tv on as well but your remote did not send those signals so when you switch inputs it will power your tv off rather than switching to another activity.
This Logitech Harmony 915-000194 smart control lets you use your compatible Apple® iPhone®, iPod® touch or iPad® or Android device to control up to 8 components for simple, multifunction use.
nice buy...I like....This particular remote is going to be good for most home theater applications, unless you have a ton of components and/or have your stuff locked away in a closet or a cabinet w/o direct line of sight from the remote (if that is your situation your are going to have to spend more money for a remote with a r/f transmitter)....I use Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries all over the house anyway so no big deal to swap them out when they lose their charge (but it's been a month and still going strong), and now no charging base to worry about which took up room on my table top, a power adapter taking up room also, and the cradle was flaky anyway.
Control up to 8 devices using this Logitech Harmony 650 915-000159 universal remote that is compatible with more than 225,000 devices across more than 5,000 brands for wide-ranging use. One-touch activity buttons simplify option selection.
A breeze!...IT's good...Add to the fact that a touch screen is not as accurate at buttons you press (as on the Elite remote) and the power drain on the IOS devices while using the Harmony app I bit the bullet and purchased the Elite Remote which is bundled with a hub and 2 mini IR blasters....Love the Harmony remotes and have used them for several years however they do not work well with Sonos speakers and will only control volume on 1 Sonos speaker per activity (I have 2 Sonos speakers 1 left and 1 right) Overall I returned the remote because of this and hope they come out with a software update in the future to address the issue.
Designed for use with a variety home automation and entertainment devices, this Logitech Harmony Elite 915-000256 remote allows easy control through closed cabinets or walls for flexible use. The remote works with Alexa, and the Harmony mobile app supports simple on-to-go operation.
Loved it!...Best ever...I simply entered the model numbers of my devices and Logitech worked through the rest of the programming and automatically worked out the combo functions like turning on the TV and soundbar, changing the TV input and turning on the gaming console when I want to play Xbox....No reason to use the TV remote, no reason to use the cable remote, no reason to use the sound bar remote, no reason to use the blue-ray player remote; not four (4) remotes laying around, now you have just One (1), the Harmony Remote.
Control up to 15 entertainment devices with this Logitech Harmony Ultimate One 915-000224 universal remote, which features a 2.4" color touch screen that simplifies option selection. Favorite-channel icons let you quickly access frequently used channels.
Loving it....Its great....Overall this product is worth the buy but there are a few nuisances that I do wish LG would address including button that stick, weird activity when used with a Roku, and a few glitches during the setup process that required some patience to work through....The biggest disadvantage (if you use the Home Automation) is that if you create a lot of activities, you end up with a never ending list of things you don't need, because they are automated by the activity itself.I own both the Harmony Home and Ultimate and I am much happier with the non-touch screen remote.
Designed for use with home entertainment and home automation devices, this Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home 915-000237 remote integrates a full-color touch screen, motion sensing and vibration feedback for a seamless, intuitive Harmony control experience.
It great....It was ok...Needed a replacement remote for one of the LCD televisions, and surprisingly this remote connected and worked right out of the packaging, even though tv was not a RCA brand....Normally when you purchase a universal remote, you have to find the code for your tv, but all I had to do was put the batteries in and push power on, and Bam!
Control up to 3 devices with this RCA RCR003RWD universal remote, featuring infrared operation with expanded DVD and VCR capabilities. The ergonomic design and partially backlit buttons keep your hands and eyes comfortable.
I like it....It's good...With this remote, though, that isn't the case...the buttons are well laid out, selecting a source is easy, and programming the remote is a snap...just plug the remote into your computer, go to the harmony app, and download the source directly into your remote....It works well but didn't have specific functions that I wanted (like a delete all button which sounds a little snobby but when you have 100 Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes to delete you want that ability) so I ended up buying the AT&T remote anyway.
With the ability to control up to 8 devices, this Logitech Harmony 350 915-000230 universal remote simplifies operation of your TV, cable/satellite box, DVR, Blu-ray Disc player and other home entertainment components.
So cool!...works well...I have a large multicomponent system and it handles it well, assignable buttons using the smart phone app were crucial to add discreet settings to enable changing soundfields and other advanced av options ....And the best part is it doesn't need to be constantly charged, as a matter fact it never needs charged, it doesn't even have a charger, unlike the touchscreen remote switch could only last two or three days without being charged, which by the way became more like every day needing a charge after a year or two of usage.
The included Harmony Hub relays commands from this Logitech 915-000239 Home Control remote or Harmony app to a wide variety of home devices, whether for home entertainment or home automation, using IR, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and more.
It's great...It's fine...It was great paying under $30 for something that controls everything and won't cost me a new home theater to get the full surround sound effect through the optical out put....From the cable to my t.v. from the surround sound to the cd player to the Blu-ray player and it has many programmable features and the remote learns from your current remote, now you can have 1 remote for all of your devises, In fact I like it so much I baught 3 of them now I have 5, one in every room, THIS IS A MUST HAVE, GO AND GET THIS REMOTE you will not be disappointed, it does take a few minutes to set up SO BE PATIENT!!??!?!?
Replace your collection of remotes with this single remote that can control up to seven A/V components.
Love it...WOO HOO!...If you are looking for a cheap replacement remote, go for it, if you are looking for a full-featured universal remote, pay a little more and get something else (read: better)....I was surprised that there were features on my TV that I was unaware of but discovered thanks to this remote.
This RCA RCR004RWD universal remote can control up to 4 devices, including streaming players and audio devices and most major TV brands. The backlit keypad includes keys to access advanced cable and satellite options and provides menu and guide support.
we love it....Great Deal...Was nice to be able to buy a replacement remote locally instead of having to wait on it to be shipped by DirecTV....In these past 19 going on 20 years, NONE OF US have ever had a Remote Control from DIRECTV to BREAK Mid-stream!
This remote features a code library to make it easy to control up to 4 of your A/V components.
Great buy....Very Nice...I have had trouble syncing this in with my home system and sometimes the Harmony remote will do what it is supposed to but go back to the system and say that certain commands don't work....I'm well informed when it comes to electronics and this item needs some avg Joe's input on how they see themselves using it, this item requires to much verbal structure in its commands for Avg.

Love it....love it!...I did have difficulty with finding the correct code for the sound bar but the Insignia customer representative was helpful and assisted me with getting it programed....I could make it turn my tv on and off, change channels, and volume, but couldn't get it to work the smart features on my tv
Only @ Best Buy

Best ever...Works well...I've owned a lot of "universal" remotes before and all they would really do is turn my equipment off and on and raise and lower my volume, but this remote goes way beyond that....Sony customer support is not very good, as they are just trained to read the manual to you and lack and magic knowledge to really help you (at least in this case).
Control up to eight A/V components with this easy-to-use remote and eliminate the clutter in your living room.
Good product...works well....It seems solidly made, it takes seconds to program and then life gets just that little bit easier to no longer need an oversized complicated TV remote, I love it!...(But it was due to my native remote not having working batteries) After clearing up my confusion, set up was a breeze and I was able to program my TCL flat screen TV remote to the sideclick.
