Once the remote is setup, it is very easy to use.
Matthew Walsh
All appearances suggest that it is brand new which makes saving a little extra money by buying refurbished all the better of a deal.

If you think this remote is just a fancy color display version of other run-of-the-mill universal remotes on the market... then you really need to do more research before you buy this remote. Many of the negative reviews on this unit are because the buyers did not thoroughly understand the concept of the Harmony 880, or how it works, or that you have to program it via your home computer and the Internet! If having to install software on your PC and downloading component device codes is more complexity than you are willing to tackle then this is not a remote for you. Instead you might want to consider something like the 8-DEVICE Learning Upgradeable Universal Remote or the One for All URC 8910 Universal Remote Control.

You should also know that the Harmony 880 has been around for several years. By todays standards, and with the advent of high-resolution color displays found on most cell phones, the low-resolution display of the Harmony 880 may seem a little lackluster. Understanding this before you purchase may save you some disappointment. With that said, while there are newer Harmony models like the Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote Control or the

The Harmony could not have a more apt name, it brings harmony to your entire home entertainment system. In my case 6 remotes are now tucked away in the drawer and only the Harmony remains to control it all.

The best part of the Harmony is not that it simply replaces the remotes you already have, after all any simple budget universal remote (that costs a fair amount less) can do that. Where the Harmony exceeds it that it is an intelligent remote. Yes it will act as a bridge to replace all your other remotes, but the Harmony is smarter than even that--it brings interaction between all the remotes. Through setting up of activities, you simply need to press a single button on the Harmony and it will do every single command action necessary to bring up the viewing mode that you desire to do--Press "watch TiVo" for example and the Harmony will turn on your TV if it is off, will cycle the TV to the correct input, turn on the TiVo if necessary, turn on a audio receiver if necessary, set the audio receiver to the input it needs to be on, and though that may sound complicated as you think of all the steps--it's all automated, to you it's just a button press away. Then if you tire of watching live TV and want to watch say a DVD, press your watch DVD activity and the harmony will change the input on the TV to what it needs to be, turn off the tivo (If you've set it to do so), switch the audio receiver input as need be, turn on the DVD player, and (if you set it up to do so) even eject the dvd tray for you so you just need to walk over put something in and retract the tray.

I recently purchased the refurbished 880 and was not able to get it to take a charge. I tried the solutions posted on the internet to no avail and upon calling Logitech was shipped a replacement unit. The replacement unit was also a refurbished one. While waiting for the replacement I learned that a coworker owned a 880 and his was not refurbished. He said it charged fine. When the 880 arrived I once again tried to charge it and I thought it might be charging since the little red battery indicator in the upper right flashed occasionally. However, after being on the cradle overnight it was dead as a doornail. The display was black. I had the inspiration to see if my co worker could charge it and I gave it to him to try. He brought it back the next day fully charged - "No problem", he said. Well, we both brought our chargers to work today and I measured the cradle output voltage of each. Sure enough the refurbished unit only produced 4.6 volts compared to 8.7 from the "good" one. I still have the original 880 cradle they shipped me, since they didn't want it back, and it also is producing 4.6 volts. So something is clearly wrong with the cradle charging circuit. If your unit doesn't charge and you have a meter then a quick check will save you a lot of time pursuing solutions that don't work. The cradle label says it should produce 8 volts. Now I just have to call Logitech yet again, hopefully they will send me a good one this time.

In general I like the way the software works. So no complaints there, just on the hardware.
