    Boy you got that right but the way everyone is talking about it I figured what the hell the wife will only yell for about 30 seconds and nothing like when she saw my new tv I bought a year ago. I thought she was going to kill me because of the size of it which is only 58 inches but if looks could kill I would have been dead but she got over it. LOL

    I just hope this easy to program I only have the HP 5880 tv, HR20, Bose lifestyle and a panasonic DVD player to program.

    You should have seen my wife's face when I had my 106" screen and projector delivered last year. I thought our marriage was over for sure. ;)

    These are VERY easy to program, Steve don't worry about it. All codes should be readily available for you. I just picked one up as a back up to the Xbox model I just bought a few weeks ago. At that price I couldn't resist. I have my HR20, Sharp Aquios, Sony Blu Ray player and an HDMI switch configured thru mine as well as my XM2Go receiver I have set up in my room. 106" screen?!!!!:eek2: Damn Chris!!

    SWWEEET DEAL!

    Two weeks ago, I paid $90+tax at Sam's Club for one of these as a gift for my Mom. Looks like I'll be getting one or two for myself now. Time to retire my klunky old Sony RM-AV3000.

    Thanks for the tip on this. I have one 676 already and love it. Best button layout and feel of the Harmony remotes IMHO. I paid over double this for the one I have. I needed a better remote for the family room system, so I grabbed one of these.

    What is the difference between this and the 670? I ordered 3 670's yesterday at $79. Prime overnight shipping, so I cannot cancel.

    Basically $30...Seriously though from reading descriptions of both it appears that the 670 is a newer model but other than that from reading I could not find that much of a difference between the 2. Also it appears that neither the 670 nor the 676 have the colored buttons for interactive purposes. (You'll have to program them in.)

    What is Woots? Is that a website?

    www.woot.com

    They typically have a new deal every day. A new deal comes up at midnight central time every day. The item is for sale for that day only until it sells out or it hits midnight.

    Unless they are having a "Woot Off" which is another deal entirely...

    Just ordered mine today at 59.99. Still a great deal. Wanted to try a Harmony to see if it does what it says. Should've ordered yesterday.

    Thanks to the forum for posting that little gem.

    One question though, why is Amazon so incredibly slow to ship stuff? I ordered yesterday and they estimate the ship date will be July 31, that's 8 days! They estimate delivery between August 6 - 10. I won't get it for over two weeks!

    Is this punishment for using Super Saver shipping? I ordered some gifts from them July 17, and most still have not shipped. Some of them shipped just yesterday, July 23, and are estimated to arrive August 2!!! That's ten days after actually being picked up by UPS! (Amazon gave UPS notice to pick up on July 19, four days before they actually picked up)

    It didn't use to be this bad, has something happened at Amazon?

    That's pretty much it. Amazon's site says Super saver is 6-10 business days (or up to two weeks from the day it leaves the warehouse). Regular shipping, which was about $6 for the remote, is about 3-5 business days.

    Super Saver might be free, but it might also take an extra week. I have given up on that and switched to Amazon prime.

    This is the reason I signed up for Amazon Prime its $70 a year but to me since I shop alot at Amazon.com it's well worth it. The shipping time frames are either 2 day shipping (FREE) or overnight shipping for $3.99 extra.

    I ordered mine yesterday at about noon; said est delivery 7/30; 7 days. Perhaps today's status can be blamed on original poster AlbertZeroK advising us of this great deal. He's probably responsible for most of the recent orders at Amazon!!!

    edit: Opps I stand corrected; ship date 7/30 not delivery; est delivery 8/6 - 8/10. *&%$*&%^&#&I%#)((&&%#

    I agree maybe he should get a commission on all DBS Talk sales.

    Has anyone got any tips on programing the HR20 to this remote?
