I received mine from the Amazon $70 deal yesterday.
The packaging and contents are new.
It was $70 when you bought it? Who was the seller?

Right now there's Gadge Universe and MJ TRADING GLOBAL.

It was Deals24n7. Also, there was no PST - only GST.

I have a question:
I set mine up and it works perfectly with Google Home so far. The question that just occurred to me is how to use voice controls when the TV is on. I seems to me, there will be a lot of interference between the TV and the voice command. I know I sometimes have that problem when I play music in Google Home.

Try it out and find out?

It works fine with my Alexa, but the tv is about 10 feet away and the Alexa is next to me.

You have to remember, when you’re playing music on the home, the interference is much worse than when the sound is coming from another source.

Bought from amazon, and it arrived looking brand new. I didn’t order it from amazon to save $10, I ordered it from amazon because they shipped to Quebec but BB didn’t.

Got mine and pretty obviously used (scratches, dust). Fulfilled by Amazon but third party seller.

Well I got setup this remote today. Quite the headache. Finally got it to do what I wanted. The only gripe is that the DVR button on the remote does not control the function PVR from my Bell Satellite PVR. Anyone had Bell Satellite and who was able to configure this button? It works on the Harmony app no problem. It there a way to configure the actual buttons on this remote?

Thanks!

Bit the bullet and picked on up..I got it all setup and works great. I left my TV and android TV box all on the 5ghz network and it works seamlessly. I thought there was gonna be issues but remote is flawless. Now just need a new sound bar and I'll be good to go!

Assuming you're using MyHarmony, you can set what pretty much what every button does in an activity by selecting the Buttons option. That includes short and long presses. The first step is to define what both the short and long press is supposed to do and then you can change one of the press definitions. What I ended up doing is changing the long presses for the ch+ and ch- button so that the short press changed the channel and the long presses change the PIP channel.

If you go to the devices option, you can "Fix a command" which should allow you to fix what's wrong at a device level.

Also, in my case, I transferred all my settings from a Harmony One and everything worked flawlessly except that it would not switch to the proper HDMI input on my Pioneer receiver when selecting my Roku. I ended up having the hub learn the button from my Pioneer remote. Everything works perfectly now.

I have been using this for a few years now, and has worked great!
So far I have the TV, a PS4, a soundbar & an android box all managed through the logitech remote.

Thank you! I will try and play with it some more and hopefully get that button to work. Like it so far.
