Man, how'd that guy get one almost 3 weeks ago.

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

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:

Independent Favorites and Profiles: Above I said this was maybe a good thing and maybe a bad thing.

From what I've seen, I create a set of favorites and can then create profiles
to use those favorites.

I say "good" because if you're someone who has multiple DIRECTV DVRs in one room, you only have to set up your favorites once and then they're ready for use in each activity (one DVR per activity).

However, it could also be "bad" if I can't create multiple "unique" sets of favorites. Not only do I have DIRECTV DVRs in my living room, I also have a Cablevision DVR. Channels are on different locations between the two services, so I would need to have at least two sets of favorites, and then I need to have double the profiles: One profile uses DIRECTV channel lineup, the other uses Cablevision lineup. If I can't create the unique favorite list, though, ... "bad" thing.

Yes, the cart is before the horse! I won't know it's good or bad until I try, right? Unless someone else comes back with information about it first, that is! :)

Ok thanks for the info. Now if I could only see and hold it before I buy one. ;)

EDIT: has anyone seen a picture of the ARRE433B RF extender?

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

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

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...

First person to get it running: if you publish a review in a separate thread, I'll make a big fuss on the front page, I promise.

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.
