Logitech Harmony 1000 Remote
As home entertainment systems grow more complex, the majority of us are finding ourselves with more and more remotes and more complicated button-pushing sequences to accomplish all of the task our system do. My wife and I are house-sitting for her parents at the moment and their bedroom TV requires a whopping 6 remotes! Who wants to fiddle with 6 remotes while trying to relax in the comfort of their bedroom? Not me and probably not you either.
Logitech International has come up with a solution that is infinitely simpler than the traditional universal remote. The Harmony 890 and Harmony 1000 remotes reduce the button-pushing sequence for an activity such as watching a DVD to 1. The setup is very easy as well. While the traditional setup method for universal remotes requires looking through a thick manual to locate codes form electronic models and then pushing a million buttons to configure, the Harmony models simply require hooking up the remote by USB cable to your Mac or Windows PC. You then input the device you are configuring the remote to and the accompanying software automatically configures the remote for you by searching through a database of over 200000 devices. It has been reported that it only takes about 15 minutes to set up these remotes as compared to the hours and technical support lines required for the traditional variety.
