    Lee, Not a problem. The harmonys are activity based. When you set it up, you set up activities like "watch TV', "play xbox". When you select an activity, the harmony will automatically set all devices to the correct input. When you are in an activity and want to switch, just select the new activity. the harmony will remember what each input the devices are on and make the necessary adjustments for the new activity.

    Yes. I have to switch inputs on my TV, my amplifier, and a video switchbox. The Harmony handles all of that transparently.

    I just got an 880 for my main HT system with good results--cannot tell you about the two Tivo part, but it does pretty well with macros and the like. The only thing I could get it to do directly was to use discrete power on and power off codes.

    I ended up telling the 880 that I had seperate power on and power off buttons for my components and then teaching the 880 from my Pronto Neo.

    Beyond that, I am very happy with the remote. As far as the wife factor, both my wife and son prefer the 880's ergonomics and useability.

    The 880 works fine for commands, but I went back to older model since the 880 puts out a weaker IR signal. It would not reliably work thru a remote sender as older models. Logitech support confirmed this for me.

    Logitech has updated the rebate form to include the text, Exclusive offer for Tivo users... how can they verify this?

    It doesn't appear that there is any enforcement mechanism. But the promotional agreement with TiVo probably obligates them to put that text on there.

    I bought one for $179 online, and there's a $50 rebate that I should be able to get as well. The HR10-250 is in the database, and it's working fine for me so far. I have an issue with the charging cradle, but supposedly there's an updated cradle to address this problem.

    Overall, so far I like it.

    Yeah, looks like the Dell coupon is dead. It was only valid for 800 redemptions, so it looks like they filled their limit after a few hours.

    The PDF rebate on the logitech webpage is down.

    http://www.logitech.com/lang/pdf/remotecontestrebate.pdf

    Does anyone have a copy of the PDF rebate on their PC and can upload to this forum or onto their personal web page?

    Also, anyone have an opinion on eCost.com? Mixed results on the feedback sites, but they have the remote for $179.

    Thanks in advance

    That's where I got mine, arrived on time (I paid for overnight).

    However, the model number doesn't match what's on the rebate form, so I don't know if I'll get the $50 back or not.

    The receipt from eCost says Harmony 880, but the part number on the box (which is definitely an 880) isn't the same as what the rebate form shows.

    I just sent my rebate form in also. The part number on my UPC ended in 0215 and not 0403. Harmony's site has the Part num as 0215 and the Canadian version of the rebate form has both part Nums. I hope they're not screwing me out of 50 buck. Without the rebate I know I wouldn't have popped for it

    I got in on the Dell deal, and got this for $141 - $50 rebate = $91 with free shipping. Very nice!

    And this remote is just the best. I tried a bunch of different remotes, but none would control everything, including my SDH400 TiVo box (which was always the problem). But this remote does it absolutely flawlessly!

    As well, the recharger means that, unlike that power-hog Kameleon All-in-One, I can avoid much of the expense of battery replacement! I think that's a big advantage over the 676, which takes 4 AA batteries.

    Well, I have a replacement remote coming from Logitech as my dog chewed my existing 880 (See pics here ). They only charged me $75 for the replacement, so I wonder if I can get the $50 as well? Must be worth a try!

    Maybe I'm challenged in some way that I cant tell, I hate it.

    I bought the 880 based on all the good reports I read here, I have it and its not intuitive and cumbersome.

    Its sitting in the charging station and I'm using my original remotes.

    Update
    So 3 seconds after posting I scan up to be sure I havent smeeked and see the rebate. For $110 I can muddle through. At $170 I was ready to ebay it.

    What am I missing about this remote?
