Problem is that you need to always carry this little doohinkie around.It would be easy to misplace. Maybe Apple should add an IR Blaster. I think the Samsungs already have this, even the Galaxy Media Players and the tablets. Might put Logitec out of business, though.
I'm the sort of person who would enjoy programming this device. In fact, I already have several RC apps on my iPad that I can use to control all my networked devices, except the Oppo blu-ray player. They work fine and are fun at first, but I'm finding that I usually just reach for my Harmony One for most everyday tasks. It's easier and faster.
The exception is for devices that have a display that is too small to read from a distance, such as the Logitech Squeezebox Touch. Then it's easier to use an app to pick the music you want to hear or to change the function.
Interesting review. Thanks.
I wish it would have worked. My Vizio TV wasn't in their database, and the device absolutely would not learn the IR codes for it. No problem with other devices.
