The rechargeable battery no longer charges.

This is a great remote and one I would recommend for anyone looking to unclutter the coffee table or simplify their home theater system.
D. Moore
The buttons are a bit on the small side, but that's what allows the remote to be so compact and fit in your hand nicely.

I'm not entirely sure this would be the end-all-be-all of remotes, but it sure comes close. I suspect if I spent $1,000 or more on a Pronto, I'd be a little more decisive, but the Harmony is still an excellent middle-range remote.

Set up was quick and painless. The Harmony knew about all my devices, so I didn't need to go thru the painful process of head-to-head training.

Once my devices were defined, setup walked me thru a wizard which assigned the most logical "activities" to the remote. "Activities" are basically macros - power on the selected components, select the proper inputs/outputs, and assign the buttons.

An example is "Watch a DVD". This powers on the TV and selects VIDEO5, powers on the receiver and selects the DVD/LD input, and then powers on the DVD player.

The wizard asked how I control the volume or channels for each activity. When I watch cable, I use the TV volume; when I watch a DVD, I use the receiver volume; and so on.

This may sound a little confusing, but going thru the wizard takes only about 10 minutes. If you compare this to other remotes, you would have to press about six or seven buttons, and even then, you'd not have full functionality.

If you're not happy with the Activities, you can redefine things. I changed the behaviour of the VCR, which defaults to pressing play when you select "Watch a video".

When you're using Activities, the Device button will still let you fully control any device. I like to watch TV with Closed Caption, and that was actually easier to do with the Harmony than the factory Sony remote!

My only gripe is the physical buttons. They're a little small and placed right next to each other, so it can be easy to fumble. I find that I need two-handed operation when I want to fast-forward my VCR, because the FF/REW buttons are in an awkward location which makes it hard for my fingers to find.

I'm on my 3rd replacemnt 880 since October, but still love it. For anyone having the dreaded reboot problem please read on. The remote will be working perfectly fine and suddenly reboot itself as evidenced by the "Testing" screen appearing before the Acivities screen reappears. The remote now thinks that all your devices that it turned on 10 minutes ago are now off because it has rebooted itself. Tech Support does not know how to resolve the problem except to replace the remote.

After several replacements I have finally learned that the design of the battery compartment is the problem. The battery fits loosely enough in the compartment that it can move slightly away from it's contacts. When this occurs it is the same as quickly removing and replacing the battery, the remote shuts down and then restarts.

Solution: Until Logitech redesigns the battery compartment, here is a simple fix. Take a piece of paper (card stock works well) cut the same size as the battery. Fold one end several times like an acordian and then place that between the lower compartment wall and the battery end. This should act like a shim and prevent the battery from moving away from the contacts.

This is the best universal remote control I've ever owned or ever seen.

It has completely eliminated the need for all the other remotes. Even the more advanced/complex functions of a unit's remote can be easily programmed into the Logitech Harmony. And with Logitech's online remote control data base, you just enter the brand and model number of an electronic product and, chances are, it already has all the information you'll need, plus the features you'll most likely want to put onto your Harmony. Some of the default features that it put into the remote for my devices didn't work, however, and I had to adjust them manuaully.

If you want to incorporate all the features of your old remotes into this one and have it work smoothly, it will take some time - programming, testing, reprogramming until it is tweaked to perfection. But once you're there, you'll be set.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS EXCELLENT - Logitech has a dedicated department (at the time of this review) for the Harmony Universal Remote. I had to call them twice. The wait time was short and the technicians solved my problems quickly both times.

CHARGER/CRADLE ISSUE: Several reviewers complained about problems with the charger. I, too, have experienced this problem - where the unit would not charge. I called tech support and they suggested I clean the contact points in the cradle. When I checked I saw one of the points was "stuck" and not actually making contact with the unit. Cleaning the contacts fixed the problem. That was four months ago and I haven't had a problem since. I suspect there was a manufacturing problem that left a tacky substance in the contact area that created this big problem. Since I don't see this issue mentioned in the most recent reviews, I assume it's been addressed.

I've owned the 880 for more than a year. It is the first remote my wife and I have both found simple to use and simple to set up. I could quibble about the buttons being too small, but overall the remote is a good product.

The failing grade is the result of a miserable piece of junk that is called the cradle/battery charger. It is a disaster. If you're lucky, you'll get one that actually charges the remote. Or you might get one that is fiddly and that takes shifting it around until you finally get a charge going.

Or you might suffer through a frequently discharged battery because someone walked through the room with a heavy foot -- and then find yourself with a charger that is dead and not easy to replace if at all. Mine failed completely after making me miserable for a most of the time I;ve owned the 880.

The design concept might or might not have been good, but the execution in any event is bad. You can look on all sorts of forums and you'll find this is a common problem. Among myself and three friends who bought this remote, only one of us received a charger cradle that has worked with some consistency. And it's not great. That's only 25 percent. A local video store says it carries this remote but actively discourages its purchase because of this problem. They do recommend other Harmony remotes.

I also have a Harmony 720, a Costco special. It does most of what the Harmony 880 does, i.e. it has less backlighting and small things. It costs a good bit less. And wonder of all, it has a cradle that at least consistently charges the battery. It works.

In fact, were it not for the 720, I would have had to toss the 880. I use it to charge the 880 battery (the batteries can be swapped between the two).
