I have a Logitech Harmony remote that has given up (one too many drops). Worked well enopugh but their preogramming interface is a bear.

What is everyone's experience with universal remotes in 2013? Any you would recommend? Are there iPhone/iPad apps + hardware to replace the remote?? All of my controlled devices (receiver, TV, BluRay, Apple TV, etc) are in line of sight and are conrelled by IR.

All input appreciated.

Actually, Harmony is popular because they simplified the process with their web interface. I had several remotes before I got the Harmony, and trust me, they were much more difficult to program, especially if you wanted to use macros.

Personally, I will get another Harmony when/if my 880s die.

Totally agree - I have a Harmony 900 and the set up was a piece of cake and it works perefctly with all my dvices in multi-rooms. Wife didn't understand why we needed one until we got it and now loves it. Remote clutter solved in one hit.
