New Harmony remote helps harmonize your system...
Posted by Daniel Tonks on February 1, 2002 at 1:00 AM
I'm happy to announce a brand new review today: for Easy Zapper's Harmony
remote control! Although you may not have heard of Easy Zapper before, the remarkably compact Harmony isn't just another run-of-the-mill remote. Indeed, it puts a whole new spin on the "activity" interface concept, merging a home theater into a single, easy-to-use device. Programmed over the Internet via a USB port, the Harmony intelligently creates activities based upon your components and is designed to always keep your system in complete synchronization.
Easy Zapper is promising to change the average user's remote control experience - into an easy one. So, is setting up and using the remote truly intuitive? Can a limited number of hard buttons be a viable option for complete system control? Just how versatile is the Harmony? For these and other answers you'll want to read the full review - which will also include interesting phrases such as "internal variables", "built-in TV guide", "advanced XML editing" and "scroll wheel". Interested?
In order to celebrate the review's release, I've extended our January contest - where you could win one of three Harmony remotes, among other things - until February 2nd!

New file area for the ProntoNEO and Marantz RC3200...
This week you'll find a new file area here on Remote Central specifically for the Philips ProntoNEO and Marantz RC3200. Since those these two remotes are incompatible with the regular Pronto's CCF format - they use a new NCF format, basically a compressed archive of XML and BMPs - a new file area was needed. Although it is still very small, I'm hoping that with your contributions it can quickly grow in size!
In related news, Marantz has finally released the PC software for their RC3200 remote control. You can download the Marantz RC3200 Setup program from our new file area.
