    ====================================

    Thanks, Phox. I printed the rebate form and is valid on purchases through 4/25/2006. If I can get the $50 rebate, my net cost for the 880 will be $109. Yeah! :)

    I ordered one yesterday from Harmony Computers for $158 shipped, with free ground shipping. I should hopefully have it in a week! I've wanted this for a while, and finally pulled the trigger. $108 after rebate's not too bad!

    I have been folowing some of these reomte threads and have just a few quick questions:
    1. Is the only real diffrence between the harmony remotes the button layout, and number of "activity" buttons?
    2. Can you control 3 seperate D*Tivos on seperate channels (1-3)
    3. Can you set an activity to change your reciever to the appropriate device, change the TV to the appropriate source, and have the remote control the correct TIVO?
    4. If you use the sps 30 s code, does a key mapped to -> do the 30 second skip?

    THanks

    Aaron,

    1. Only have the 880 so don't know.

    2. Don't have multiple units so also don't know.

    3. Again, don't have multiple similar devices so I con't answer but as far as starting up the TV, AV receiver and a HR10-250 in the way you described, yes.

    4. Yes, the Skip button

    Yes, yes, pretty much and I don't like the 30 second skip so I haven't tried.

    I have the 880, 3 TiVos, TV, surround reciever, 3x1 component switch, DVD player and DVD/VHS recorder.

    It takes some trial and error, but it will control the 3 TiVo's independently,
    I originally had them on address 2, 4 and 8 and that didn't work,
    changed them to 1, 2 and 3 and that did the trick.

    You push the "Watch Tivo" activity button and it turns on what you told it to, and is ready to control the TiVo and watch TV, volume controlling the TV.

    Or, you push the "Watch HD-TiVo" button, and it turns on the TV, surround sound, 3x1 switch and the HD-TiVo, switches the 3x1 to the right input, the surround sound to the right input, volume controls the surrond sound, remote is parked on controls for the HD-TiVo.

    Same for the D-TiVo, DVD or DVD/VHS.

    It originally called them PVR-1, 2 and 3, but I renamed them to HD-TiVo, D-TiVo, and TiVo.

    It's having some trouble setting my TV to the correct input, I just haven't had time to delve into it and get it working, it has 2 different buttons that cycle through either the Component inputs, or the S-Video/RCA and antenna inputs, no button to push to go directly to a specific input, so the remote wants to cycle through them, and depending on where it last was, sometimes it hits the right input, but most times it doesn't.

    If you don't like the button layout, you can program each button seperately to do whatever you want, I need to do this so I'm not squinting in the dark to find the FF button (it's rather small).

    99% sure that you can map the 30 second skip to whatever button you want, the database at Logitech has the skip in there, I remember seeing it, but I don't remember what button it was mapped to in the default, the "advance to end" button works like a stock TiVo in the standard setup.

    I just received the 880 I ordered from B&H Photo($159). The SKU model number matches that of the $50 rebate. I will mail rebate form this week and hope for a net price of $109.

    Just got the remote, It is great! I am not sure about the other stuff, but the the 30 second skip is mapped to the button marked "skip". I had already programmed the skip with the peanut, not sure how to do it when it reboots.

    Can anyone confirm this?? I need the IR signal to be able to bounce off my Front Projector screen. The tivo remote does a great job of this and my chameleon AIO does ok, but the remote that came with my projector and the audio reciever do not. I'd like to replace my chameleon, but I need to make sure whatever I replace it with has at least as strong of a signal.

    Does anyone know how to assign the '-' symbol for favorite channels in the 880? I can program regular channels fine just not HD locals.

    Example: 6-1

    slydog -- my 880 seems to bounce just fine. My LR is a smallish room; but, especially when starting up, I'm usually pointing the 880 at the ceiling because I'm being certain to press the correct button without putting on my glasses!

    I could have sworn I saw that in the drop down options for programming the custom label buttons,
    went there and checked, and I don't see it now.

    You'd probably have to do a "learn missing command" and program it from the original remote.

    I believe the SKIP button ( -> ) also doubles as the "-" on the Tivo peanut remote; as such, since the SKIP button is already one of the predefined buttons when you add the HD Tivo device to your 880, it should continue to also function as the '-'; at worse, you could always just custom-assign it to a button of your choice.
