    Admittedly, I was looking for something where when my 4 year old drops it on the floor .... I won't feel the need to want to hurt him!

    They are a bit from the CEDIA world.

    Nice stuff.

    I think you will like the way it fits in your hands

    I tried a Harmony once and finally gave up on it after it made my hair fall out. Could never get around it's "activity" system; my av setup appears to be far too complicated for that. I spent an afternoon on the phone with their tech dept. and he finally gave up also. I have the MX500 (retired), MX700 (backup) and a MX850 for everyday. The computer programming is pretty easy after a mild learning curve (I don't need no stinkin' tutorial). They do macros if needed, but most of my use is one step at a time. I admit it is something of a workout for my thumb though. I don't know about dealing with the company, but I sure like their products.

    We had issues with them early on but they are 100% better now.

    Don't hold early failures against them.

    Harmony got good.

    Do you guys use your universal audio/video remotes to dim/shut off the room lights? I'd like to have one remote that does everything instead of 6 remotes that just do one thing. I have to have a remote that can do IR and UF both.

    Anyway bottom line: How are you doing your lights?

    Thanks

    My 6500K bias light behind my tv is on an inexpensive digital timer. Turns on by itself at a programmed time, and off at bedtime. This is the simplest and most convenient solution I've come up with. Room light, a table lamp, is on a wall switch.

    Thanks jerrich, my projector room has to be real dark. The light switch is at the back of the room so everyone that wants to watch a movie has to take their seats while I set everything up for the movie. Then when wer're ready I walk to the back of the room to turn off the lights. Also if someone wants to go to the bathroom or if one of the Grandkids pours a coke on the floor while punting a bowl of popcorn across the room we go to the switch through the dark.

    So...if I could just grab the remote and turn lights on from my chair I'm suddenly living large.

    I have a URC remote that controls the lights and all of my equipment. I have it set up that if I pause the movie, the lights automatically come on at 50% power. Works perfectly for pee breaks, which happen a lot more frequently now that I'm getting older
