I use the Harmony 900 along with the Logitech Harmony® RF System to control the equipment in the audio rack set in the wall in the back of the room. TV in the front is controlled by IR, also from the 900.

While not perfect it has worked well for the last year or so.

Jack and I have been using the URC remotes for years and they never disappoint. I have progressed from the MX 500,700 and 850 to my current pair of MX-900s.

Incredibly powerful and flexible. For example, I have put commands to increase/ decrease the subwoofer on each device on the remote.

the Harmony's are Ok, but seem a bit toy -like in relation to the URCs.

+1 on Tom's endorsement of surfremotecontrol.com

I recommend Harmonies for people who need a more user friendly programming experience but the URCs are a superior product IMHO. Even if you can do everything you need to do with a Harmony, I still give the edge to the URCS on thier toughness alone. They can truly take a beating compared to the Harmonies that my friends seem to replace on a regular basis.

I currently have a URC MX450. It's not PC programmable but it's just as powerful and using the built in screen to program is surprisingly intuitive once you get at it.
