A warning for Mac users, although Logitech claims this Harmony remote works (can be programmed) using a Mac, and the box clearly shows the Mac logo stamped on it, the Harmony 1000 cannot currently be set-up using your Mac. Plenty of web forum users have reported the same issue. Hopefully a Mac patch will be posted on Logitech's site. Shame on Logitech, especially given the one year delay to get the product right.
Secondly, if you currently own a Harmony web-programmed remote, the web software is EXACTLY the same as your previous experience. In other words, if you hated Logitech's old on-line software, you'll still hate it with the 1000.
The touch screen itself looks and works great, but as with any touch screen remote, you may find yourself longing for tactile rubber buttons after a week or so of touch screen use. DVR users might struggle to get the remote button layout to work to their individual satisfaction, as the colored default touch screen buttons that are professionally laid out by Logitech are in fact permanently labeled. So if you choose to change the function of any colored button, the old default name must remain painted on top of your "custom" button. Strange oversight.
However, you can customize additional pages of ugly buttons to your liking, but they will be black and white buttons laid out in static tic-tac-toe fashion. Hardly what the box cover would lead you to believe. As with all touch screens, you will have to "look before pressing" - every single time - you want to send a command. That's OK when using an ATM, but not so great when watching a TV across the room.Read more ›
Like many people, I was slightly apprehensive to buy this remote even with the great recent deal here on Amazon for the 1000 & RF extender combo. I already had an 880, but really wanted a remote that had a nice touch screen and worked with radio frequency (RF), so I didn't have to worry about my kids holding the remote still while pointing it at all the various devices.
If you look at many of these reviews, they are either older ones or recent reviews where people have HAD the remotes for a long period of time. There was a software/firmware update which came out in early February which has taken care of many or all of the issues presented, specifically, the remote pairing with the RF extender, the need to repair if the power goes out, etc.
The touchscreen itself has been fine, it also makes use nicely of some hard buttons. The RF extender and IR blasters work well, and the unit is totally customizable to work with your components. I had a small amount of difficulty with getting one macro to work, so I called Logitech and had the best technical support experience I have ever had. Problem was solved with a friendly and knowledgable attitude.
Bottom line, if you can get this on sale again, snap it up quickly with the RF extender (if needed), update the software/firmware when you first set it up, and you will be very happy.
I have previously owned the Logitech Harmony 880 and several different models of $200-$400 remotes from the Home Theater Master line, and this is definitely a well made, well though out remote. It certainly sounds like previous purchasers got a bad deal as Logitech didn't have all the bugs out, but purchasers at this point are getting a fine model.
The Harmony 1000 raises the bar considerably. With the touchscreen, all the relevant buttons appear with the correct labels. So, if you have a five disc CD changer, you will see options labeled to change from disc 1 to 5.
The screen is very bright and not overly sensitive. True, you do sometimes need to use two hands (seems a bit obvious since it's a touch screen!!), but you can hold your finger over the fast forward button for a PVR and not accidently wind up pressing the key before it's time.
The fixed control keys (volume, select, etc.) can easily be used with one hand. The touchscreen, if needed, will give you three layers of menus to manage sophisicated devices - all are very clearly marked.
Addressing some of the other reviews:
"a beta product" - NOT. It works exactly as advertised. It took me less than 30 minutes to update the firmware, add 7 devices and program 5 activities. The only thing I wound up changing after updating the remote was the order of the activities - everything else worked perfectly.
"stand doesn't lock the remote in place" - well, I'm glad it doesn't!!! It holds it very firmly in place and is very easy to slip it into the stand.
"battery life not very good" - if you can have the base reasonably near to you, this doesn't matter at all. The remote battery life is very reasonable and it recharges very quickly.
So, if you have the money and want a touchscreen remote, this is an excellent product. Logitech has hit a homerun with this one.
