From the Manufacturer

Imagine… controlling all your devices using only one remote - without a direct line of sight to the components! With the Harmony 890 Remote, you can wirelessly control your home entertainment system while hiding all those unsightly wires and components behind cabinet doors or a wall. 

Logitech's Harmony 890, an upgrade to the Harmony 880 remote control, uses both radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) wireless signals to deliver powerful complete control of your home-entertainment system that may be hidden behind cabinets. With a wireless range of up to 100 feet, the Harmony 890 remote sends RF commands to a wireless receiver, which then blasts infrared signals to the components. The Harmony 890 remote makes universal control for home entertainment and advanced lighting systems simple.

Using Your Harmony Remote

1. Easy to set up:
Just connect your Harmony remote to your computer and the Web wizard walks you step-by-step through a simple set up. Enter the model numbers of your components, then answer a few easy questions about how you "Watch TV" or "Watch a DVD."  Harmony lets you control even the most complex system without the hassle of programming complicated macros.

2. Easy to use:
The Harmony Remote is the world's only remote with Smart State Technology®. Simply press an Activity button, such as "Watch TV" or "Listen to Music," and your Harmony Remote automatically sets up each of the devices required for that activity.

3. Easy to get help:
With the Harmony remote, you don't have to know anything about your entertainment system to operate it. No sound? No picture? No problem! There's even a handy "HELP" button to guide you through simple troubleshooting and get you back in control.

4. Never out of date:
The Harmony device database includes 5,000+ manufacturers and 175,000+ devices, everything from HDTVs to DVRs, VCRs to lighting controls.  It's constantly updated with new components and fine-tuned settings, so your remote will never be out-of-date.

UPDATE: I've just upgraded to the Harmony 1000, and talk about fantastic. Nice, easy to read screen and hard buttons, especially if you need glasses to read. Well worth the added price (since the RF receiver isn't bundled with the 1000).

---

3 years ago, I purchased my first Harmony remote, the 768. At the time, I wrote that it was the best universal remote, bar none. I've since purchased a Harmony 668 for another setup, and have recommended various Harmony remotes to my friends. It was now time for me to update my home system.

Based on the numerous reviews, many over a year old, I was hesitant to give the Harmony 890 a try. I'm glad that I did! With the latest Harmony Software and firmware updates (which are automatically installed the first time you connect your devices), my experience has been excellent. And Amazon's price is outstanding - the same that local "discount" chains are selling the non-RF capable model.

I have had no problems configuring both the 890 remote and RF wireless extender under Mac OS X (Intel and PPC) and Windows XP clients. Clearly this is a different experience from the early adopters who bought this a year ago.

Some background - I'm an electronics geek and audiophile. My system is complex, and with more components (12) than the average home setup. In my opinion, if the Harmony can be configured to control all aspects of my environment, then it should handle any configuration as long as you have the patience to work through Harmony's setup wizards and lack of adequate documentation.

Initial setup is easy - install the Harmony software, connect and register, connect your devices (firmware will be automatically updated) and then specify what components you have, and what activities you want them to be in.

UPDATE: I have changed out the following components Receiver, TV, DVD player, and added an XBox. I had an issue with the craptaculor operation of the cable box ( powering it on and off was difficult due to DVR settings: late night recording ) so I sent an email off to customer support. Two days later (Logitech could have been faster) and the fix was there under devices. Just leave it on all the time. It has codes for things factory remotes don't do!!!! For instance on my Roku Soundbridge 1000 all the Internet Radio stations can be accessed directly and there is a last server command which basically lets me switch between internet radio and PC music with a single button press vs menus and navigating. Essentiall it's made the system more pleasurable to with. I may even buy a spare JIC someone breaks this one!!! Incredible experience!!!

I read all the negative review and became VERY wary of purchasing. I decided due to go with the Harmon due to the price (relatively cheap) and no clear runaway reason to go with another Universal remote to give this one a try. Boy am I glad I did that because it's GREAT once you get it programmed. There are 4 caveats!

#1 The CD included is a travesty wayyyyyyyyyyyy out of date. Don't bother with it just go the the Logitech site and download their software/drivers. It's slow and you need a fast connection because the firmware update is 50mb and you need to update both controller and base station before programming.

#2 IMO you don't need to be that computer savy but Mac users seem to have more issues than PC users I believe that is because Logitech's Mac support is poor.

#3 This is simply a two day process. The remote needs to charge over night before getting started. This is NOT well explained (if at all) in the instructions.

The Harmony 890 remote (Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote Control)

Reviewer experience level: Electronics hobbiest; considerable experience with both PCs and consumer electronic devices

I've owned this remote since December of 2006. Since then, I've had three major problems with it. In all three cases, tech support was awful.

In the first two instances, efforts to program / update the remote failed because of errors in Logitech's web-based programming utility. The first problem occurred when I tried to program the remote for the first time. I kept getting a Java error mid-way through the programming process. Eventually, after trying every troubleshooting trick I could find on the Logitech website, I called tech support. The initial tech support operator absolutely refused to believe that I wasn't doing something wrong in the programming process, and kept trying to talk me through the process over and over. Finally I was transferred to someone who knew what they were talking about. That person admitted that the problem was due to a programming error on the web site, and suggested that I "try again in a few days." They finally fixed the problem, and I was able to do the obligatory firmware update and program the remote and RF receiver, but having a brand new remote that I couldn't program for several days because of a software error by the manufacturer left me less than impressed. Sadly, that was the easiest of the problems to resolve.

A few months later, in early 2007, I changed TVs and needed to reprogram the remote and receiver.
