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

I've never found anything on the manufacturer sites.

With Sony, unless it's ancient, you can pretty much guarantee it has discrete power and input codes (I've got 4 Sony TV's in my house from 1 to 10+ years old, and they all use almost the same set of codes, and all have the same discrete power codes).

For Onkyo, if it's newer (<3-4 years old) and more than $350/has DD5.1/DTS, you're pretty safe. If remotecentral says there are discrete codes, you're golden.

What matter most is discrete power and discrete input selection. Everything else is secondary.

And you can get the MX-700 for a lot cheaper if you go on-line. There's some issue with authorized vs. non-authorized reseller, but from my perspective if it's in a sealed box and brand new, I don't think I care?

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