    Is anyone using a Harmony 885 with B&O kit? The test drive tells me that it’s possible but the FAQ says NO. This negative view was reiterated in an email from Harmony Tech. Support “I unfortunately have to inform you that at present none of our Harmony Remotes can control Bang & Olufsen devices.” Does anyone have any actual experience?

    Thanks
    OJ

    I thought I read somewhere on the Logitech site that they were working with B&O to sort this but I may be mistaken.

    Is B and O stuff Infra red?? I always thought it was RF as I remember my mates tv could be controlled from the heavyweight brick remote anywhere in the house and the cordless phone could turn the tv up and down.!!

    Yes, definitely IR, but not ‘normal’ IR – the modulation frequency is higher that that used by practically every one else.

    Unfortunately (for you) i have found the harmony technical support to be very helpful and accurate! If they say no im sure the answer is (currently!) no.

    It’s taken a few weeks of tweaking by Harmony TS but I can now control my Beocentre 9000 with my H885. As psflynn said, they are very helpful - and very tenacious too it would seem. Many thanks to Terrence at Harmony TS.
