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.
What's in the Box
Harmony 628 remote control, Harmony software installation CD, USB cable, 4 AAA batteries, and quick start guide.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.

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!
