Advertisements I am happy with the CEC implementation. I can just push the Tivo button on the remote, and it turns on the TV & AVR, and selects the correct inputs. One button and done. My TV is a 2011 Samsung 64" plasma, model # PN64D8000 and my AVR is a Yamaha RX-A2010, if that is helpful to anyone. On a side note, I like the "peanut" remote. It would be nice if it was backlit though. And even better if it could be used to control components other than the Tivo and the TV/AVR power/volume/input. I've always been a big proponent of having one remote for everything. I haven't programmed my programmable remote to operate the Tivo yet. I use the same programmable remote for every room in my house. It is discontinued nowadays, but it is infinitely programmable using an open source tool called "Remote Master". I use the Acoustic Research ARRX18G. Ergonomically, I've never found a better remote. The Tivo "peanut" is just as good, ergonomically, but lacks the backlighting of the ARRX18G, and the touchscreen. When I bought the AR remotes, they were a LOT less expensive than the Harmony. The only feature they lack, when compared to a Harmony, is power state tracking. But if you are careful with the programming, that is not a problem.
