Logitech harmony 880 remote response time?
 
Do anyone know what the reponse time of the harmony 880 remote is? I know it is infrared based. How long to you have to aim the remote at your components before a macro will complete itself? Would I be better off just using the my learning Onkyo Remote and changing sources individually as I need to?

tigeraudio2007,

I have four of the harmony remotes, and am a huge fan, so maybe I can shed some light on this issue.

First as you said, the 880 is IR only, but it sends the commands pretty quickly, so for a relatively normal macro of say 4-10 commands I would expect less than a few seconds. This can be longer if you needed to add delays into the macros.

I am not sure what features the Onkyo remote offers, but the harmony's are so simple to use I have young kids (10+) who have used them successfully. One key feature is the 'Help" button. When something doesn't work right, hitting that button walks anyone through fixing the system set up. You have no idea how many phone calls this has saved me.

As I said, I am not familiar with what remote comes with the Onkyo you have, but FWIW I run my reference system off a Harmony 890 (the 880 with RF relayer so I do not need line of sight) and I control all my sources (I an SACD/DVD-A player, DVD-A/ Blu-ray. HD DVD player, HD DVR and two different servers to stream music to my system from this remote.... and it cost me like $227 from Amazon.......

I have a friend who lives in West Palm in a VERY nice home that is replacing his entire AMX system with Harmony remotes.

I think it is a BOLD statement as to the effect of PC convergence as it relates to the custom install world.

One of our BIGGEST ModernHomeTheater.com installs is being ripped apart to replace the AMX system with Crestron (not Harmony). The client also wants one up and one back for the system so it is never down for more than a few hours - EVER. That is a NICE sale for the installer.

According to Network World there is a free response time monitoring tool that can be found at

06which means I Los Angeles escort can't video the singers at my shows, but if a mate of mine records Los Angeles escorts it, we're okay???
on a side note Los Angeles asian escort does this mean I can record my singers and give them a copy for their own personal use if I make no profit from it.
Not trying to be Los Angeles asian escorts awkward (though I realise i am) just struggling to get a clear idea what is and what isn't allowed.
