Replacement for Kameleon remote?


Standard Member
Hi Guys,

My Kameleon One 4 All remote is going through batteries like nobody's business so I've decided its time to look at alternatives. I originally imported the URC9960 from canada, and after much reprogramming I got it configured nicely. The downside has always been battery usage :(

I need to control a Samsung LCD TV, a V+ Box (TV Drive), a philips DVD Player and a Sony amp/dvd (DAV-S500). I've been looking at logitech's range of remotes; specifically the 525, 555 & 785, does any one have a thoughts / comments / recommendations on these remotes? I can see the 895 looks good but its a bit pricey. I'm not sure what the differences are.

I don't want to spend an absolute fortune, but on the other hand I don't want a product that looks cheap and plasticy, obviously functionality is very important to.

any advice would be appreciated.

Hiya ,

I bought the harmony 885 as I could re charge it...cost me £100 at Xmas from amazon..Appear to have gone up to £136..
Can't fault it although took a short while to configure it.

Good luck


Another vote for the Harmony 885.:thumbsup:

I've had my Kameleon for a just over a year now, just ordered the 885 to replace it after all the positive comments. Should arrive this week :D
I'd been looking for a replacement for a while now since the Kameleon just wouldn't control everything I've got. Obviously I can't recommend it personally yet since it hasn't arrived but I spent a long time researching my replacement (half the fun IMHO) and the 885 looked like the best bet. I'll post my opinions on it once it arrives.
