It's annoying, but more annoying, is that I could get the Harmony One to work with Remote Buddy, so I could launch and exit programmes on my Mac Mini, however I haven't got it sorted on the Ultimate...

Just teach the Ultimate the commands from your One that work if you can't figure anything else out?

It's a bit of work, so I need to take some time in the near future to give it a serious nudge.
This is the guide I've been working with / learning from / tweaking...

Hmmm... firmware update seems to have broken one of my activities. No longer switches TV to the right input for my PS3 activity. The others seem to work OK. I'll need to look into it this weekend.

Had mine for about a month now and I am quite impressed. It is quicker to respond that the Harmony One. The killer feature for me is the Philips Hue integration, when I turn on the TV it turns off a light I have opposite the TV that reflects in the screen. In the past I had removed the bulb from that light. I don't like the location of the Fwd, Rwd etc buttons, I use these all the time to speed up ads and having them at the top is a pain.

The iPhone app is handy when I forget to charge the remote, but the app itself is poor. You can’t customise the buttons/layout and the pictures in favourites (sky sports logo etc) don’t show up. Hopefully this will improve with time.

Yeah the last update did bad things to my MySky activity...
The TV won't turn on correctly on occasion, but that's inconsistent.
The pause button via the touch screen isn't great now, for whatever reason, where it was previously.

SQLGeek, I have my Sky logos show up on the iPhone app, it's under the 'Star' icon...
