Good evening,
Was looking through some old mail and found a advert from Directtv offering the Harmony 885 Remote for sale..from looking around it seems its not available in the US?? Was wondering if anyone took them up on this offer and if the $199 price was worth it? Does it work with the hd dvr well?

Thanks

Tom

I believe the 885 is the same as the 880 but it's the UK version. Yes it would be excellent for a DVR. No, I don't think it's a good deal as the 880 is going for $20 less after shipping new on a well known auction site.

I think the deal that was mentioned expired on 12/31 unfortunately. Other than this being a British version..are there any differences between this and the 885?

The links in the post you linked to don't add up to the number you posted because CompUSA's price is 249.99. Am I missing something?
Oh my bad, I just did this deal a few days ago and thought the sale would extend through this weekend.

I have this remote.
It is the absolutely the best remote i have ever used! It works completely seamlessly with every component i have. It works with my RCA hd tv,Sony stereo receiver, Sony 6 disk DVD player, HR10-250 + Phillips dvr. I even have it programmed to use with media section of laptop!
All i can say is BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT!!!!!!!!
even if it was $300 it would be soooooo worth it.
