The Logitech Harmony Remote w/ Smart Hub is on sale for $58. This is the same price that it was available for during Black Friday and is the lowest price that it has ever been. Harmony remotes are among the few universal remotes that can control the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition televisions. The included hub connects to the Fire TV via Bluetooth, which lets it seamlessly relay commands from the remote, mobile app, and Harmony’s Harmony’s Alexa skill.
Am I missing it? I don’t see it through that link.
I don’t see it either. I know it was on sale for this price one day last week, but I missed it so I was hoping it was on sale again.
Walmart.com has had them for $58 + pickup for awhile. I think they still are. Not positive tho…
Still $58 plus tax
They generally sell out really quickly when the sales are mentioned. Currently all you see are refurbished units starting at $69.50
I am seeing that deal for $58 but not in stick until next week. Not sure why.
I have two of these units and it really seems hit or miss that they correctly operate my gear. I just went down to the basement to troubleshoot an activity that was just my 2nd Zone of receiver and changing it to AV6 input. Simple activity. For some reason it also turned on my television! That’s the thing I want to keep off as much as possible. Just seems to send spurious signals all the time. It does sort of solve an issue with my older Yamaha RX-V675 receiver with Alexa but is not very consistent. Leads to a lot of frustration when I am cooking dinner and just want to listen to some music.
Sounds like you have HDMI control on. That would happen if it was enabled on your TV and or your AVR. Turning on the AVR would turn on your TV. Make sure that is off.
I was hopeful that your suggestion would be helpful but my TV doesn’t have that setting (purchased in 2006 or 2007 I believe) nor could I find it on my receiver. I will keep looking to see if that is the case. Funny thing is that when I went down in the basement to look, the TV was on but the receiver was off. I will look at the manual more indepth to see if turning on Zone 2 activates the HDMI (my guess is no since I can only use analog or internet sources on Zone 2).
It doesn’t even need to be HDMI CEC. It could be as simple as a signal on the port turning on the TV. That was a ‘feature’ before HDMI CEC was a thing.
Anyway, something isn’t right because you shouldn’t be getting spurious signals firing at seeming random times from your Harmony. The fact that you found your receiver off and your TV on makes me think your TV is experiencing issues with the speed that Harmony is sending out the signals. The support website can help you with slowing things down, but you could also try experimenting with adding a 1 second delay between commands in your activities to see if that helps.
back in stock @$58
back to $80 on amazon ($60 at BB last day today?)
