Advances in the Harmony Remotes’ Setup

July 24, 2008

Apart form advances in the Logitech Harmony Remote hardware there have been some nice advances in the setup software for Harmony remote controls recently.

Well, maybe not recently, but at least the advances were new to me. My wife might not believe this, but it has been about 2 1/2 years since we added a new piece of AV equipment to our house significant enough to merit a change in the programming for our Harmony remote controls. So when I set up our new Sony Blu-Ray player last night I used the Harmony setup software and discovered that some advances has been made in the past 2 1/2 years.

Setting up the Harmony remote involves installing and using web based software installed on your PC. Your PC connects to the remote via a simple USB connection.

Here are a few of the key advances I noticed:

  • Ability to associate command sequences with a key.
  • The ability to reorder commands on the LCD screen.
  • A nicer graphical interface.

Still missing, however, is the ability to copy activities and device setups between multiple remotes that you may own.
