Even the Harmony is a pain to set up. The hardware is brilliant but the on-line software is from the Stone Age, excessively dumbed down for those who move their lips when they read so you have to painfully plod back and forth through endless step-by-steps, with no options for macros, shortcuts, skipping directly from one point to another, and also being confronted with lots of really dumb default choices with no option to ignore them. This requires a lot of creative 'hacking' to get around and it took me awhile to work out the best ways of doing it. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is the result at the end when you finally get it right. But it's annoying to say the least when the Harmony doesn't recognise half of my devices and doesn't offer any option to create my own categories so I have to keep installing them as kitchen appliances with curse words for model names so I can get to the point where I can manually create my own commands for them. Whoever designed this was seriously brain-damaged.
