Hey, I got my Harmony One, applied the 550 setting against it and it
worked perfectly. (Except for the Menu button, which always required
tweaking.) My IR receiver just worked with it. Its a very nice
device. Good weight and size. Responsive. Good button feel. And I
only have to deal with the touch screen when I am switching devices.
Thanks for the recommendations, everyone.
