Product Description

Product Description

The Harmony Activity Remote Control is the only remote with Smart State Technology Activity Control. Just press an Activity button such as "Watch TV" or "Watch a Movie", and the remote will automatically set up your entertainment system in seconds without you ever having to program a 'macro'. It supports most infrared-controlled devices made by any manufacturer, including TiVo, HDVCR, HDTV, plasma displays, monitors, projectors, DVD players, fireplaces and more. Imported.


The Logitech Harmony 628 Advanced Universal Remote with Interactive Display and Software CD Control enables you to control your entire system with the press of just one button. Simply select an activity and your remote will evaluate the state of all your audio/video components, then send the correct commands to make your system do exactly what you want. The intuitive layout and one-touch Activity Buttons of the Logitech Harmony 628 makes it the ideal choice for controlling your entire entertainment system.

The Harmony 628 integrates all your device remotes with no macro programming. Setting up the remote is easy using the Web Wizard. Just tell the wizard the make and model of your devices, and Logitech's patented Smart State Technology does the rest. After completing the Web Wizard set-up, program the remote by simply connecting the Harmony Remote to your computer with the supplied USB cable. One-touch activity buttons allow you to watch TV, listen to music and more with ease. Lastly, the easy-to-read interactive display keeps you in control and informed of what's going on, and backlighting makes the buttons and interactive display glow brightly for easy use in the dark.

The harmony remote connects to a computer using a USB cable. You then install some software on the computer and then navigate to a web site (harmonyremote.com) to configure the remote control. All of the configuration is dependent on this web site. On one hand, this is good in that this web site should always have the latest device commands in its database. However, the drawback is that you have to contend with a web/HTML interface and the wait times associated with a web-based application. Personally I think it would have been better to have a normal installed Windows application that can receive updates on new supported devices over the internet.

Configuring the remote was not that easy but was possible. Basically if you have fairly "well-behaved" and well supported devices with no special characteristics or requirements, their wizards should get the remote configured quickly. But...if you have certain tweaks you want to make then navigating through their configuration pages can be frustrating. For example, if you want to add certain device commands to the list of commands sent when an activity button is pressed (activity = "Watch a Movie"), then you have to navigate through their setup wizard for the activity and then, at the end, choose from one of the 3 responses which dumps you to a configuration page that finally allows you to add commands. This page should be accessible directly - but isn't.

Ultimately, though, despite the poor configuration UI and web site, I was able to get this remote configured the way that I want. The end result was great. It is a very easy to use remote once its configured. One of the things I hate about many remotes is that you have to give guests a tutorial on how to use them so they can operate your entertainment system.

Verified Purchase
I bought one of these a few weeks ago because I was tired of juggling three remotes. I had tried several other "universal" devices, only to find it impossible to get all the functions included in any reasonable fashion.

The harmony remotes, rather than being programmed using code numbers, are set up through a USB cable and a web site. That means there is a little extra time at the front end, involving loading the PC-based software (more later), the firmware update to the remote, and then the config information. The benefit is that you get almost limitless flexability in defining how the remote works.

Another wonderful feature is that it understands operating modes. If you push the "Watch TV" button it will turn on, for example, your TV, your set top box, and your TIVO. The button labled "FF" will control your TIVO. If you push "Watch a Movie", again the appropriate devices will be turned on (and the inappropriate ones off if you choose to set it that way) and the same "FF" button will now control your DVD player. The result is far fewer buttons and a better interface.

About the software, when you get your remote (and you should), don't install the CD that comes with it. Go directly to the web site where you can install the latest version. If you install from CD you'll probably have to uninstall before the update will load.

After seeing how well the first remote worked, I bought a second remote for my upstairs TV. Now I see they are about $10 less than I paid; an even better value.

I've got a pile of "universal" remotes in my home, all of which failed to run at least one of the components in my entertainment system. When I saw the 628 in the store and took a chance on paying it's relatively high purchase price, I was fully prepared to take it back if it didn't do EVERYTHING I wanted to do with my system.

And I'm keeping it.

Yeah, the web interface is a bit of a pain, and I'm worried what will happen when their server goes down or Logitech decides to end support. But darned if this thing didn't already know about every one of my (rather odd) components, with just a few buttons missing, and those it learned without any trouble. The state-concious macros allow you to switch entertainment activities without getting out of sync or having to cycle through OFF, and the ergonomic shape lets you run things one-handed. The biggest time-waster is whittling down the kitchen-sink functions that clutter up the soft key menu pages, and I had to lie and tell it my computer was a cassette recorder, but once I got it tweaked it's been very handy. Save the receipt if you must, but give this one a try if you've been disapointed by the others. You may just keep it.

This remote is great, it controls everything I need it to with ZERO probelms, and if you did have a problem it can help you fix it! This remote is a little on the pricy side but well worth it when you can control your



DVD Player


Cable -or- Dish System

Stero System

Surround Sound




I love this remote I took all the other ones, and placed the in the drawer. The software for this is really simple to use, and follow it really walks you through the setup process really well. The best part is you can program it to do certain things for example: If you want to watch a DVD, it will turn on the TV, DVD Player, and Audio System all at the same time - how cool is that! This is worth the money - the dog even got ahold of the remote and did a number on it, and it still works! The screen could be a little bit larger though, not by much!
