    Harmon Kardon TC30 vs. Logitech Harmony 880?

    I get the harmon for under 120 shipped while the logitech can be had for 145. I know the logitech is an amazing unit and typically a top rated one at that. I'm coming from the sony rm 3000 series so i'm used to that but can become happy with a new style. any personal recommendations/suggestions?

No go fast mods yet...tuning and Mazda6 don't go well together .

    So that set me off, and I said "Well then why do they let deaf people drive?"

    the screens look identical but ive never used the kardon specs look similiar but i didnt look at them much. i do know i love my 880 and the way it looks and never one problem ever.

    and i know their warranty is awesome they will send you a replacement remote and then you send them your fualty unit back in the packaging ive heard of them doing that many times.

    no glitches or anything with mine so far ive had it for like 3 months and did i say how **** it looks

    From what I have read, HK tends to play a little warm.

    I am using the 680 peanut. Works well with the HD tivo unit. In fact it has run all my stuff flawlessly.

    Re: Harmon Kardon TC30 vs. Logitech Harmony 880?

    i have the very first harmony that came out a few years ago, and it still works like a champ

    survived a year+ at my parents house, and an entire year living with 3 roomates in a partyhouse

    they're solid remotes, and the macro functions are aweseome, but i think they all do that

    they automatically navigate all the menus in your tv for repeated tasks, and keep track of what's on, and what needs to be switched, and how to switch between sources, etc.

    so regardless of whether or not your tv has a simple 'source' button, it will go through the menus and select the correct source, change your receiever, turn things on or off, all you have to do is press the source you want to watch, and it does the rest. even turns the ps2 and xbox on and off, and it's all programmed over the computer, you don't have to teach it anything, which is a blessing for things you've lost the remotes to, like my dad's old late-80's big screen that hasn't had a remote for years

    yeah my 5yr old sony doesn't do that sadly. you have to program all of the things and some of my stuff (DVR) is too new so it doesn't do all the functions. that's my main concern is 1 touch easy on/off and that it'll program my DVR.
