    Harmony 890

    So im reading that the remote is RF and i know most remotes are IR But i do have a harmony 890 remote. Will this remote work with vudu as it DOES use IR and RF frequencies to transmit?

    Re: Harmony 890

    No. Unfortunately there are no universal remotes that I know of that include the ability to mimic an RF remote. You'll need to get the IR dongle to work with the Harmony 890, and it does work.

    Personally - I've gone back to using the VUDU remote after using the 890 and IR dongle. The Harmony works, but in my opinion, the VUDU interface is just easier to navigate with that scrollwheel remote (although I admit this is a personal preference). And I'm OK with having just that one separate remote.

      I'm kinda with jleavens on this one. I also have the 890 and I use it sometimes but if I'm going to be doing any significant interfacing with the Vudu I use the stock remote - it just works so dang well.

        I'm going to take the contrarian view here.

        I have my 880 working with the Vudu and rarely use the RF remote. I've had some interference problems or something with the RF remote and sometimes it doesn't work right. Other than the dang worn out buttons from the cheap 880 construction, the IR always seems to work.

          How is it that a remote this advanced feels like the buttons could snap off any time? A color LCD screen, yet I've got to jam so hard on my Channel Up button it almost hurts to use.

          Then again, my Harmony 890 has always been a bit of a lemon. It's clock is more wrong than my VCR.

            Agreed. I'm going to try the Harmony One next. The buttons seem to have a bit better of a feel. Ticks me off as I've purchased 2 880s over the past 3 years or so and both have the same problem with the buttons.

                Well, my first one had been dropped onto my hardwood floors a couple times and one of the locking clips on the right side had broken. So I figured my problem was that the case wasn't holding together properly and hence, the buttons didn't work so well (the problem seemed limited to the right hand side of the remote). So I bought another one thinking the problem was me but it isn't - it's the design by Logitech.

                  One of the posts on remote central, about Harmony remotes, talks about the average mileage is about 12 months before buttons start to go bad. I am with Jon here, very disappointed in the endurance of the Harmony products.

                    I've had a Harmony One for about a year now and it's still working just fine. The motion sensor for the backlight is a bit less sensitive than it used to be, but that's about it.

                    I have to say after owning a number of mid-range universal remotes over the years (anyone remember the beast that is the Marantz RC-2000? I think that remote could bring S.O.'s to tears...) they did a great job on the Harmony One design. The materials and build quality seem noticeably better to me than with the 880/890, and it's a lot more natural when holding/using common buttons. Though the finally-sensible-layout of the trickplay buttons alone makes it worth upgrading from the 880

                        Yep, i have the IR eye on my Vudu box.

                        Using Harmony 659 for 5 years now. Stupid me, paid $70 for the first one,
                        then got three more refurbed for $27/piece off Amazon.

                        The principle of the tactile remote is very well implemented in this unit. Nothing like operating it in total darkness without having to look at it.

                        Once you get hooked into fine tuning delays and timings on the online programming, you will never ever want another remote.

                        It even has the Vudu box in the online database, with a lot more buttons than on the Vudu remote.

                        $39 for the IR eye is well spent money.

                        As for the above statement, two of my 659s are approching 5 years of use, one especially has daily use, still working like champs. Only problem is that one of them was in storage for 4 years, so it took a few days of repeat pushes until the copper oxide rubbed off.

                        I still don't understand why people shell out hundreds for the color screen models square models, 510/550/720/880/890 when they defeat the purpose of the tactile remote, with buttons lined up in rows that need to be looked at all the time. Only the 670 and to some extent the One stayed true to the original concept IMHO.

                        Again, great web based interface no matter what model you get, and the One is a very stylish piece.

                        Why do people still buy non-Harmony remotes? For the same reason they drive automatics i guess.

                          The 880/890 remotes are all tactile feel. The screen only provides buttons for things that are like "Special" commands that aren't standard remote button commands. For any device you set up, probably 90% of the button presses are not items that use the screen.

                            I went with the 890 for the RF feature. For the life of me I could not get any IR repeater to work effectively near my plasma. I know they make plasma proof IR repeaters and I tried those - no love.

                            So for me the 890 is perfect!

                              The One is really a great remote, especially for the price. Why they still haven't made an RF version is beyond me, unless they really do have that many 890s laying around & are still trying to sell through them.
