-- Wanted: Opinions on the MX-?00's vs. the Harmony 688 (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=180975)

I have the MX-700. I love it. It's 100x easier than the Pronto, both to program and to use. And it seems infinitely flexible, but without being overly complicated.

I prefer control of what my remote does, and the MX-700 software is stupidly simple to use (especially if you've ever tried the Pronto software).

And most importantly, my wife can use it, and my nanny can use it. I have the following on it:
- Tivo
- HD Tivo
- Sony LCD RP TV
- Samsung DVI DVD player
- Pinnacle Media Player
- Camcorder
- Onkyo A/V receiver

Press one button, everything switches on and to the right input. Press another button and everything switches off.

(If you don't have discrete codes for power, you'll have a problem no matter what. State is useless when you can "miss" the device. Fortunately my TV and Stereo have discrete codes, and everything else just stays on.)

Click to see my useless thoughts...
DirecTV + Tivo is better than Cable, you're wrong if you don't agree.
