And that confirms exactly what i remembered about URC, thanks.
I just don't have time for another learning curve. As it is i'm starting to tinker with Linux soon to get off Windows and i have 4 computers and kids and wife to do that with.
Big enough learning curve and time consumption aside from hockey, swimming, music lessons....
Somewhere in there, i need a life.

The Harmony Elite or the 950 which is the Elite without the hub, would be your only real choices, IMO. The Ultimate has been discontinued, I believe this is the one you were referring to which had the buttons way up high on the remote over top of the screen. The Harmony One is still my favorite remote for button lay out and the One is what I still use for all my HT gear.

Recently moved to the new Shaw Blue Curve system and the remote for it SUCKS. The Volume buttons are too far away from the D pad, all in all it just a very awkward remote to use.

Evidently there is very little out there in the way of easy home consumer universal remote companies i guess.
You would think there would be so much more these days, something for competition with Logitech.

Has anything worthwhile materialized on Kickstarter or other crowdfunding sites?

Agreed, with the plethora of devices in our lives these days it would seem a great market to develop.
