Gadget takes two hours to charge up before use :( Has a battery pack much the same as a Nokia Mobile Phone.

Software installed okay etc
Database aware of all my main toys including my new Denon DVD-1920 which by chance it displays as a sample product name format :)

With my Panasonic TV and Yamaha AMP it listed all its inputs 100%

e.g. on TV
AV1
AV2
AV3
AV4
PC
COMPONENT
HDMI

Really cool :)

Only one thing, it fails to select the TV AV inputs correctly :(

It looks like it may be possible to get it to work by teaching all the correct code sequences.

However, it it knows about the TV, surely they should have obtained all the correct IR codes to faciltate an easy setup.

Of course with gadgets like Tivo and Sky+ no codes are actually need to select the input but with Component and HDMI there is.

Colour display is not bad and Aerialplugs Tivo logos work for your favorite channel buttons (but display the wrong colour) :)

Unit also has a motion sensor which wakes up the display when you move it and can sit on its charging base which has an illumited Logitech logo in the middle (blue LED).

Remote works pretty good and I must correct an error on my part.

HDMI like scart does autoselect. Only component does not.

Thus as my Panasonic Plasma has the most crazy logic for input selection I have overcome this as follows.

AV1 & AV4 are both RGB Scart.

AV1 is fed by a Philips DVD Recorder and a Tivo Box
AV4 is fed by a Panasonic DVD Recorder and Sky+
HDMI is fed by my Denon DVD-1920 upscalling DVD Player - Will be Sky HD when it arrives.
Pinnacle ShowCenter 200, XBMC, PS2 and XBOX 360 (when it arrives) are fed via component video (via Audio Authority auto switch box).

The remote is programmed to turn off un-needed items.

Thus I have activity to...
Watch Sky+ (btw do not put a + in an activity name as it errors)
Watch Tivo
Record DVD Panasonic
Record DVD Philips
ShowCenter
PS2 / XBOX

To make it all work I never press the four colour AV selection keys on the TV remote. I just leave it set to Component which is the only input that does not auto select when the item is taken out of standby.

TV is set to switch on in UHF TV mode.

The TV has a TV/AV toggle. The Activity start and end which needs component video just operates this at start of activity and then again when you pick another activity.

I reset the TV's master profile in the Harmony remote so when it tries to use the duff Harmony logic to pick AV1,2,3,4 Component PC,HDMI it just select UHF chn 1,2,3,4,5,6&7 which has no real effect.

Buttons are more fiddly than the Tivo remote and it seems no macros are possible.

Otherwise now pretty good and still 29 in stock :)
