Yes, it'll be a pain if they shut down all the accounts, and we can no 
longer reprogram our remotes. I have no plans to add any new devices, so 
that may not be a disaster, but also the buttons wear out. I'm wondering 
whether to pick up a 350 while they're still about. I currently have an 
old 650. Anyone know whether the modern 350 includes all the features of 
the 650? Well, there's no screen for a start.
