Bluetooth has distance limitations on each individual device that may want to be controlled so a remote manufacture will probably use the RF extender/base as a repeater to the Bluetooth device(s) like Logitech has done for it's remotes to control the PS3. It's a better solution so they don't have to support questions like "What type of XYZ do you have and what's the model number. Oh, that only has a 30cm range where the model up has a 30 meter range." RF however is more known (still not guaranteed) but can be built device independent.

I also like the Harmony because of the Z-wave wireless they use. Each Z-wave device must be able to be a repeater. This is a requirement of the Z-wave protocol and creates an environment that can extend and self heal if a device goes off line. It's pretty elegant when you consider a light switch can become a wireless repeater for your audio equipment control.

What I'm trying to say is don't wait. Enjoy now if you can.

Ray talked me into the URC MX series a few years back and I’ve had several. I have the MX 980 now and love it. It does have a steep learning curve though and not recommended for anyone that does not have some patience. After you figure out the programming, what you can make the thing do is amazing.

If I were in need of a remote today, I would try the new Nevo C3. It is looking to be a very attractive compromise between the MX series and the Harmony remotes. The ease of programming of the harmony, but the configurability of the MX. The best part…….. They’re inexpensive.

Unfortunately it doesn't say whether or not it controls the rest of the system or just your music device, it sounds to me like just the ipod etc. and not the receiver itself.
