Slightly less than the Harmony 880 is the Harmony 550, which I have.
Go for whichever you can afford.  I've heard the 550 can sometimes be
found for around $70.  Key differences: shape, regular batteries vs.
recharging station, can program more devices.  But either one will let
you create your own "soft buttons" with custom labels, learn any IR
codes, and benefit from a well updated online database of codes for
other devices.
