It was probably the EU version. They've out for a few months now.

Not according to his Ebay ads.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

On the EZ-RC Remove Control Setup Wizard page there is a link to a tour of the software. It seems very similar to Harmony setup, with the exception that Favorites and Profiles are independent of Activities (maybe a good thing, maybe a bad thing) but I still couldn't find any references in the tour to macros.

Link: http://www.ez-rc.com.../UserLogOn.aspx

Then click "Click here to take a tour".

Note: I could not get the tour to work in Firefox 3.5.2 - I had to run it in Internet Explorer. I hope that's not true of the actual web setup wizard as well. :rolleyes:

Same with the registration page -- ASP.NET

LA Times, too. No price, but with the ad repeated 3 times in four pages, they really ought to have them in stock.

SWEEET! Very interested in the 15G (non touch, non RF as I don't need or want either) and it's around $179 which I believe is very reasonably priced.

I see a possible Christmas present in my future...

Here is the link to the extender info & picture that I had posted earlier in this thread Link: ARRE433B RF extender

When I click on that link it says "no data found".

Try this link

Looks nice though, it has 6 IR extenders included.

I ordered the ARRX18G yesterday through Amazon, but the delivery estimate is 2-8 September.
Guess I would have been better off to have driven down to Dallas and visited Fry's.
(Not that I really could have squeezed it in, moving #1 son Saturday and need to go to Tulsa on Sunday)
I imagine that someone will pick one up at a B&M before I get mine.

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

As bad as I want one, and try as I might, I just can't bring myself to spend more on my remote than I did on the DVR it would control, no matter how cool it is. Sadly, my $29 refurb harmony 360 is doing all I need :crying_sa . I am looking forward to some reviews though.

Does Best Buy have them? I can't find them on their site.

If so I'd buy one on the way home...

Has anyone found a list of supported device manufacturers? Before I make the leap, it needs to be able to run Escient and Sunfire.

It can also learn any commands from your original remotes too.

Yea, but damn. That could be 100-200 keys for the Sunfire alone. :)

I have no idea what a sunfire is, but I wouldn't try using any universal remote to control anything with 200 buttons. I think the xsight and similar harmony's have something like 6 commands per page, so that's over 30 pages of buttons. It would take forever to do anything. Not worth the effort.

My Sunfire TG-5 came with a RC-500. It is a learning remote, but I use the RF on my DVR's
