    OK guys,

    I need to control the following, Marantz CD, Pioneer amp, sky +, sony DVD, DVDO HD scan, and a Panny 42PHD6.

    AS well as myself the remote has to be wife and child friendly, I like "real" buttons, and I'm no good at progamming.

    I think I've narrowed it down to a Harmony, but which model should i go for?

    thanks

    martin

    Was going to say H655 - does everything I need with real buttons and is very family/babysitter friendly... hope you find the 768 the same.

    Hi, I'm looking for a similar type of remote as the author but am concerned that the remote may not utilise all my equipment. (I've never had a universal remote before, so bear with me.... :cool: )

    I have a Pioneer PDP-434HDE plasma, Arcam DV-79 DVD, Yamaha DSP-A1 AMP and a Sky+ box. I also have an old Panasonic NV-HD600 VCR.

    Will the Harmony 655 run all the functions or my amp or just the main ones ? I assume that I will still have to use the Sky remote for the Sky+ functions or is the Harmony capable of that as well ?

    Sorry to sound a bit dense but, as I said, this will be my first Universal remote purchase.

    Cheers.

    For SKY+ it has to be H655 £150 (it has coloured buttons) :D If there is enough interest i might go for a powerbuy on these bad boys......
