- What's Included
With a wireless range of up to 100 feet, the Harmony 890 remote sends RF commands to a wireless receiver, which then blasts infrared signals to the components. You can even add extra receivers for even greater range or to control multiple entertainment systems. The Harmony 890's color LCD is both functional and stylish, with user-customizable backgrounds, button icons and text. There is ample space for up to eight custom activities or controls, and the on-screen battery level indicator even shows you the status of its charge. The Harmony 890 RF Color Remote supports thousands of brands and products, so with a single remote, you'll be able to control 15 devices, including televisions, plasmas, projectors, DVRs, PVRs, laserdisc players, satellites, cable boxes, amplifiers, receivers, VCRs, DVD players, computers, and even lighting controls! Colorful icons accompany text on the LCD screen to allow for quick and easy command of home-entertainment equipment and household appliances that may be out of range for a traditional infrared remote.
The Harmony 890 is simple to set up: Connect your remote to your computer via the included USB cable. Enter your equipment model numbers and answer questions about how you watch TV or listen to music. The Harmony Setup Wizard walks you through the process, step by step. Automatic updates are available through the Harmony website, as well.
The Harmony 890 RF Color Remote puts you in control of your entire audio-video system. Optimized for complicated HDTV and PVR systems, the Harmony 890 helps you tame tough configurations like switching your television between video aspect ratios depending on the program source. The interactive color display lets you quickly choose a 16:9 ratio for movies and HDTV, or a standard 4:3 ratio for basic television programming.
You won't be constantly restocking your battery supply when this remote is adorning your coffee table. The Harmony 890 includes a sleek docking station that keeps the remote's included rechargeable lithium-ion battery fully charged. The remote will work for a week without recharging under normal use, but the included docking station allows remote to be used while charging.
Designed with brushed chrome and charcoal accents, a color LCD display and a low-profile recharging station, the Harmony 890 RF Color Remote will complement your most advanced audio-video components. Featuring a comfort grip shape and a centered directional pad, it fits easily in your hand and naturally guides you to the most frequently used controls. Even the buttons are sculpted to help you locate them by feel, not sight.
In-House Product Review"Infrared (IR) has been the standard for remote controls for as long as I can recall, and if you remember otherwise, well, I'm sure you can regale me with tales of 8-track tapes and hula-hoops, too. While IR has worked well over the years, the Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote ushers in the next generation of remote controls. The Harmony 890 is a radio-frequency (RF) version of the popular Harmony 880, Logitech's first web-programmable, color screen, rechargeable IR remote control. Not limited to line-of-sight like IR, RF signals can reach equipment behind walls and cabinets, granting greater flexibility and control to any home theater." Read More...
