Home Theater Heaven

 

Buying components and building a sweet home theater is just the first step. The hard part is taking control of it. And no, it shouldn't take three remotes and a degree in electrical engineering to watch a DVD. The good news is, Logitech's Harmony 890...

Programming software is easy to use. Configuring the remote takes about an hour, not days. Remote comes with charger and wireless extender. Has a Help button to fix occasional problems.

Fast-forward, play, and rewind buttons could be better placed. Wireless extender must be connected to your PC during programming. Codes occasionally do not get sent.

If you're looking for a universal remote to tame all your unruly home-theater devices, Logitech's Harmony 890 is one killer option.

Logitech Harmony Remote Brings It All Together

 

DVRs, audio receivers, massive LCD displays, spent Mountain Dew containers. Your living room is a chaotic mess of electronic components and soft drink bottles.

LCD screen shows every function of the remotes it replaces. Converts IR signal to RF eliminating line-of-sight issues. Remote can be programmed via computer and with your existing remotes. Charging base keeps the battery fresh. Compatible with Z-wave...

Can be laggy, making fine adjustments in volume difficult. RF receiver uses four sticky IR emitters, limiting number and placement of hidden equipment unless additional RF extenders are purchased

Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote Review

 

It seems like my home theater spawns remotes like Gremlins fed after midnight. Every time I sit down it seems I find another remote and its getting to the point that my wife is going to snap. She seems to always grab the wrong remote for whatever it is...

Logitech's Universal Remote Letdown

 

The Harmony 890 can control more than 80,000 devices -- even through doors. But its features don't justify the $400 price tag.

When you're spending $400 on a remote, you know you've come a long way from those circular knobs on the front of the TV that required getting up from your seat to switch stations.Logitech's (LOGI) Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote costs more than...

Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote

 

13 MONTHS INTO OWNING THE 890 PRO THE SCREEN WENT BLANK. AFTER TROUBLESHOOTING ONLINE AND NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT FROM LOGITECH I WAS TOLD THAT I CAN GET ANY OTHER REMOTE FROM THEM FOR 50% OFF. THE ONE TO REPLACE IT IS $400.00. SO AFTER $250.00 FOR THE 890...

Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote

 

I've had my unit for some time now and it's worked very well, particularly in my application in which I have my components hidden behind a wall. I recently upgraded my system with a new TV and BlueRay player so I had to re-configure my devices. I'm not...

Easy setup, easy to use, clear instructions

Support for this or any other item from Logitech is an absolute joke. Painful to update

Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote

 

The Harmony 890 remote is absolutely the best universal remote on the market. I control two flat panel LCD TVs, the home theatre systems supporting each, ATT-Uverse Motorola receivers, all my zwave lamp and appliance modules and overhead light dimmers....

Best universal remote on the market, best remote Logitech makes, well surpasses the Harmony 1000 which is more expensive a "bugger" to program and will not support Zwave technology

Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote

 

Here's the Deal, I bought it and it worked fine in IR mode. RF did not work so well. The Zero Button never worked. I had to program the button next to it to be zero. No big deal.After a few weeks, the auto glow crapped out. No big deal.Then it started...

Controls all of my components: Directv, Flat Screen, Bose......... all of them

Feels slick, I dropped it a couple of time due to it
