    Actually, setup doesn't even require you to know what address you have the Dish receiver on. Setup tells you to put the Harmony and the Dish remotes end-to-end and it asks you to push a seemingly random button on the Dish remote... it's using the "learn" mode to verify that the Harmony is on the same address as your Dish remote. If they are not on the same address, it asks you to push a different key.

    I have used the Harmony remotes on multiple IR addresses for many years. (>6) I used one on my 508s years ago, on my 942, on my 622 for a couple of years , and now on my 722k. This is not a recent feature. Your "About time they caught up." would seem misdirected. :rolleyes:

    Again, you allow batteries to swell, and subject your remote to more "energy" then the folks that have tried to say that they are not experiencing the problems that you seem to be continuously encountering. Wonder why? :lol:

    The Harmony One uses a replaceable rechargeable Li-ion battery. $29.95 on Amazon. And I had no problem getting mine out a few days ago. Oh, wait a minute. It wasn't swollen.:p

    My first Harmony was a 659 many years ago. The way you changed addresses at that time was call Logitch support and the CSR would change it for you in your account. Then after a lot of folks were calling you then had to email support a request. Not sure when they did set it up in the data base.

    I have read this on other posts - even though when those posts were made the software was capable of getting to the correct address without calling or E-mailing. I set the correct IR address via setup many years ago. YMMV.

    Maybe you could then and the CSR took pity on an old man and did it for me. :p I would think had it been possible he would have told me. And as I remember he even had to get 2nd level to do it.

    Whatever. All I'm saying is that this old man has never needed CSR assistance in setting the IR address and that goes back many years. :)
