I'm wondering if anyone's run into this dilemma.
I'm using my Harmony 688 after many years, still love it. When watching TV, I use all the buttons for Tivo functions.
Now that I've got a Panasonic w/ Viera Connect (same as Viera Cast) there are some features like Netflix, MLB, Facebook (gasp), Bloomberg, etc that are useful so I don't have to pull out my Mac or iPad. It uses the direction control on the remote.
I can create a new activity just for the Connect, since that's the only way I can see getting use out of the direction buttons.
What have you guys done?
