Logitech Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3

 

What's turned out to be one of the most disappointing omissions regarding the PlayStation 3 has to be the lack of an IR (infrared) port. Getting the console to play nicely with a universal remote control has been quite infuriating, but we've tested...

Provides complete control of PlayStation 3 including all 51 possible commands; allows for powering on and off; saves a USB port

Adapter requires power; Harmony programming isn't as simple as directions make it out to be; won't work with remotes other than Harmony

Setting up the Logitech Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3 isn't completely painless (or cheap), but once up and running, it does provide total control over your PS3 including the ability to power it on and off.

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PS3 Review

 

I have used a Logitech Harmony One universal remote for my home theater since it launched. The first thing I wished for after setting the remote up was that it could work my PS3 as well. Unfortunately, thanks to Sony going for Bluetooth control for the...

Best PS3 Adapter available.

 

This was a great addition to my home theater setup. I got a 50% off coupon (thanks ebay!), and was able to pick it up for cheap. Normally, this is a pretty hefty price to pay for what it does, but it works well. I have an RF extender with all my...

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3 Review - Remote Controls

 

if you have a harmony remote and PS3, you need that.

Works fine with PS3, and you can customize buttons at your remote control

I had an issue with my first adapter, which was confirmed by the manufacturing as a bug

Although the product directions are sparse, it's really easy to use. Plug it in, set it up with your PS3 in the accessory settings and you're all set. There's nothing to it. I can use my Harmony One to power it on/ off and other functions

Price is an obstacle basically just to use a Logitech universal remote

I got a great deal via Amazon for both the Harmony One and PS3 adapter for $184 shipped. It was very easy to set up and there were no issues setting it up with the Harmony One. I can turn the PS3 on/ off as well as every other function I've needed....

Reportedly works well with older PS3 models that have not been upgraded to 3.0 firmware

No upgrade for PS3 3.0 firmware in sight. Will most likely require a recall of the current adapter and a new model will need to come out

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3 Review - Remote Controls

 

With the release of the PS3 Slim, the Logitech Harmony adapter is rendered useless. If you check the forums on Logitech's support site and read the numerous complaints, there is currently no solution to the problem with the PS3 3.0 firmware update. The...

Logitech Harmony Adapter for PlayStation 3 Review - Remote Controls

 

My biggest frustration was the time it took to release this adaptor. Ever since I got my PS3 I have spent $20 on the PS3 BT remote and $20 on the Nyko. I only use the Nyko's IR adaptor to receive IR signal from the Harmony One, and while it allow for...

Truly works with the PS3. Adaptor small enough to be blended out of sight

Although not the most expensive adaptor, it is still a bit much for an add-on
