"Very disappointing, problems rename Custom activates."0.5 starson by Thom505ca
Pros: Feels nice, it is lightweight.
Cons: If you follow the instructions and use myharmony.com to program you can not rename any custom activities you add, THIS IS A MAJOR flaw with this remote, it is suppose to make things easier and less cryptic, but this simple feature is not available.
Summary: Do not program as they suggest by myharmony.com.
Myharmony.com software will not let you rename custom activities, they will show on the remote as Custom 1, Custom 2 ect... this makes the simplicity of owing a harmony 700 remote not so simple. I was told by tech support that if you use the 7.7 software (note, it is not even mentioned in the manual that comes with the remote you can use alternative software) you can rename the activities. I was told that once programmed by myharmony.com you can not then reprogram using the 7.7 software and thus never being able to change custom activity names. I have been in-touch with tech support and client support and so far no resolution (3 days), but I would consider this a major flaw with the software and the remote.
Interestingly there is a picture on the box of the remote offering a "Play Game" activity in the screen, but this would impossible to have this in the display if programmed through myharmony.com, as it would be only shown as a "Custom" activity. Not sure this is a right model if you want a easy to use remote.
