    Hi All,

    I just got a Harmony One Ultimate from ebay. I got the model with no hub and I am wondering if I should have gotten the hub ?

    The only thing I have found it that I cannot control my PS4 without it. Which is no big deal.
    All of my other devices are showing as compatible on the Harmony site.

    I am just wondering if anybody can tell me what I will miss/lack without the hub? Ability to use iOS based remote maybe ?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Not sure about the PS4 but if you ever go down the Amazon Alexa root a harmony hub is great if you want control over activities.

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm a while off Alexa for now. Once it's been updated to understand Geordie then I might give it a go ;)

    I believe the hub will only turn it on/off.
    I don't have the hub but I did set an activity to turn the TV onto correct channel & power on amp. then it's one button press to turn ps4 on with the controller.
