Re: Considering moving from the MX500 to a Harmony One
I recently replaced my Marantz RC2000 learning remote with the Harmony 890. I have 2 issues with the Harmony.
1. PLEASE! Let me rearrange the order of the DEVICES.
2. When I downloaded the codes for each of my devices I only got about 1/10th of the commands available on the native remote controls. I'm left to program the 90% of commands which were not downloaded.
If all of the possible codes for every device would have downloaded to my computer:
a. I wouldn't have to train the remote because it would already have all the commands it needs.
b. I wouldn't have to connect to the internet every time I need to do even the most minor of changes.
Its a PITA to have to hook up to the internet and go through 20 minutes of crap just to rearrange a few commands. The RF module AND the remote are separately updated. So, I make a small change, wait 20 minutes to update my devices via internet, test the change, tweak the change, wait 20 minutes to update.... ad nauseam
On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give the 890 a 6
