Just pulled the trigger on a refurb 900 for $140 plus tax/shipping.
My 880 has finally annoyed me enough to finally force an upgrade lol

just got my remote today.. get this error message when setting up:
This product was previously identified as defective and replaced under warranty. It has been disabled and therefore you will not be able to continue setting up or using this remote.
If you have received a replacement remote please confirm it is connected and try again.
Can't wait to get a reply back from customer service.
Another disappointing experience with a Logitech product.

Request for a 10% VIP code if you have one and won't use it!

After about a month with my refurb (perfect condition) Harmony One, I'm a huge fan. Replaced the remotes for my TV, cable box, soundbar, DVD player, and Roku. Set-up is quick and fairly intuitive.
Just bought another Harmony One for my dad for xmas.

|onlymedee||I never got my 10% code either and really would like to have one!|

|zonk675||Anyone got a 10% coupon code to spare? I never received an email with one.|
|10-30-2012 07:12 AM|
Just an update - Logitech said they can't offer refunds for the difference on the 10% coupon and you need to return / re-buy the item. But Logitech will pay shipping both ways - so I'm going to return mine which should be arriving today and re-buy it.
Stupid on Logitech's part to waste money on shipping both ways - but that is what they want to do!

BUMP- Still in stock and just got a 10% off coupon for the VIP Store. Email says the code is unique, so check your email to see if you got a code.
Going to try to call them when they open this morning and see if I can get the difference back.
Sorry to hear some people got crappy refurbs. I didn't get mine yesterday because of the storm - should arrive today or tomorrow.

Will call customer service tomorrow for an exchange or return.

You should call Logitech support.

In terms of programming - with the 900 you only have to hook the remote up to the computer. The RF receiver is programmed by the remote wirelessly, it is really cool and a lot more convenient. You can also make some programming changes on the remote itself without needing a computer - things such as whether the device is controlled by the RF receiver or by IR on the remote is all done on the remote.
I also find the 900 to be more reliable in terms of me pressing buttons and my Directv receiver getting it (I have an HR24).
The Mini IR blasters that come with the 900 are different than in the 890. The 890 comes with little IR blasters that you can stick to your devices individually. It would work regardless of whether you have your equipment in a cabinet or just have it out of your line of sight. The 900's mini IR blasters are more intended to sit in a cabinet or something and hit multiple devices. They do a multidirectional blast, but it isn't the ideal solution for me. You also only get 2 of them, and the RF receiver only has 2 plugs instead of the 890's 4. Unfortunately the 890's RF receiver is not compatible with the 900. (Also note that Z-wave is not compatible with the 900).
You can also re-use the little IR blasters that come with your 890 if you buy a Mono 2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone jack converter ( like this: http://www.monoprice.c
The one drawback (other than the lack of Z-wave) of the 900 is the lack of sequences. Not everyone used them, but if you did - then you will miss it on the 900. Sequences in Harmony speak is the ability to program the remote to perform up to 5 different commands when you press a single button. For example, on Directv, turning on closed captioning involes you pressing the Yellow button, the right arrow 2 times, down once and then Select. You can't do this with the 900. Activities and stuff like that still work just like on the 890, but not sequences.
Last thing is that you will have to setup a new Harmony account for the 900 - for whatever reason, any programming you've done with other remotes such as the 880, 890, One, etc will not carry over like they normally would with other Harmony models. So you need to re-do everything from scratch.
Overall - I'm still happy with the 900. It isn't perfect but the RF works great for me (better than the 890 imho) and I don't use sequences or Z-wave.

|Jarvis.in.PA||Can anyone highlight the differences between the 900 and the 890? I am replacing my 890 with this, as it's had some problems programming and other minor issues.|
