Hi, I have just set up a UTP 4x4 HDMI matrix with a Panasonic dvd recorder, Humax Freesat HDD, and XBOX. I need a smart remote control that I can programme to switch the matrix inputs and also control all the sources but I wanted to buy 4 one for each room so don't want to spend a fortune! I looked breifly at the Harmony 300i but i'm not sure if it can' do the matrix switching? Any ideas suggestions would be great Thanks.

Hi and welcome to AVF.
I don't know what thiss device is but if it's something with an original remote that works by InfraRed then any Harmony can control it.

Thanks the matrix does work over ir and uses a magic eye type linkback through the pair of cat6 that is terminated with a hdmi balun. The control functions are simple as it selects source 1 on screen 1 or 2 etc. Thanks for your help I will buy the Harmony and see how I get on.

That's OK and you'll be fine with a Harmony, though the 300 is different from all the others and I wouldn't recommend it.
This is the current UK range but many previous models are still available.
