Any input on this device? I want to connect with alexa and have a $20 reward coupon for BB, so I'm thinking of pulling the trigger but reviews on BB seem a bit inflated versus Amazon.

I picked this up for $58 at Walmart Saturday. It's been a struggle ever since to get it set up. The shelves in my AV cabinet are fairly cut off from the other shelves, so turns out I need to use IR blasters on each shelf, and then the IR commands aren't reaching my LG OLED TV that is (obviously) outside of the cabinet.

Also, what happened to the days of device selection for universal remotes ("now you are a TV remote, now ROKU, etc.) rather than activity modes?

if you have a means to place it outside and directly looking at your entertainment center, the better it would work. right now i had it place in a cabinet in the back of the room so it have full view of all the devices. all it needs is wifi and power for the hub.

There was a Walmart store at a certain zip that had it in stock for $29 and do online chat with Best Buy to price match. The Best Buy agent will place an order for pickup at nearby Best Buy to that Walmart then after order is placed you can change pickup location to your nearest Best Buy.

I tried it this weekend for $58 at Walmart. Got it Friday - ended up returning by Sunday. Setup is cumbersome but it seemed like it was working. I mainly got it for integration with Google Home. I was able to say "tell Harmony to turn on family room TV" and it worked. I could change channels. However, the next day nothing worked. I also could not get my son's Roku TV's to set up properly so for me, it just wasn't working.

I would get it maybe more if you want to consolidate a bunch of remotes. For google home integration, it was extremely buggy in my experience.

Grabbed it for $58 at Walmart also. It's definitely cumbersome to setup, but once you do it's pretty sweet. I use it with an Echo and Alexa, and can say things like "Alexa turn on the Wii U" - and the Harmony Hub will turn on the tv and the receiver, and set them both to the proper inputs. No more having to manually switch inputs with different remote controls. It will even simulate buttons presses so I can say "Alexa turn on Netflix".... And the Hub will turn on the Tv, receiver, Nvidia Shield, set everything to the correct inputs, then move the Shield cursor down to Netflix and press OK. Netflix starts with out touching a button.

It's not for the faint of heart, but if you consider yourself a little tech savvy and are interested in this'll sort of thing (I was because I could never remember all of the inputs and settings to play my game consoles) then it's a pretty cool device.

Do you happen to still have the zip code for the store that you price matched to? I'd be willing to try the same. Thank you in advance!

i am not a fan of the $70 price. the device is good but for some, you may not even get to use the remote.
