    Does anyone have any views as to the suitability of a Harmony 1000 as a replacement for my rapidly deteriorating 3805 remote control? I am starting to suffer from the cracks reported by other owners and the impact that has on the buttons. If I'm going to have to fork out £80-£150 on a replacement from Denon I'd rather get something good!

    I'm using a Harmony 680 to control my 1907, 2910, Phillips Plasma, DirectTV box, old JVC VCR, and I use the remote to set up the 1907 for cassette play. It controls all components with no problems.

    Thanks for that. I use the zone 2 option on my 3805 so need to be sure the harmony could cope with that too. Guess I need to go into a retailer and get a demo.

    Thanks for that. I ended up with the 895 in the end. I've got it set up for Zone 2 but when I use the volume control it messes about with the CD player. Any ideas?

    Does the Harmony 1000 also support wireless light dimming devices? That would be really cool when starting a movie!
