Would a PDA-based remote be a good choice for me?

I'm looking for a remote that will control the following devices:

- Samsung HL-P5063W DLP HDTV
- Dish Network 811 receiver (RF, I believe. Hoping to upgrade to a Dish Network 922 in latter half of 2005)
- Toshiba SD-3960 DVD player
- Sony STR-DE875 6.1 receiver
- Denon DCM-340 CD player
- Hitachi F382 VCR

I've heard good things about both the Harmony/Logitech remotes and the Home Theater Master remotes. I'm also looking into PDA-based applications like Total Remote.

I'm totally new to universal remotes, so I have no idea whether any or all of these potential remote choices will work with the above equipment, especially the RF Dish Network 811 receiver.

One thing I like about the H/L models is the ability for a family member to simply press "Watch TV", "Watch DVD", "Listen to CD", etc. buttons and have the remote handle all of the details. Can other remotes be setup to do this, too?

I appreciate any assistance and comments!
