Additions To The Menu
If you own a previous Harmony remote, you will see a few new options. Those new options can be seen on your left. Custom Images and Favorite Channels have been added. If you are new to the Harmony Member's Website, and have not owned a Harmony remote before, simply create a username and password at the website mentioned, and you will see the same menu options as you are now. Setup takes only about 20 minutes. This average time could be more or less depending on your system. What's nice is that once you have your information stored on ANY Harmony remote via the online website, you can transfer all your commands. This is what I did and it took only a few minutes to be transferred to the Harmony 880.
Adding a background to the 880's features is really a cool new feature. What I'd like to see, is the option to upload more images, and the user could select between which one they want to use at that particular time. In fact, maybe even a different image for each day of the week might be interesting.
Set Up A Slide Show
The slide show was really fun to create. Simply upload 1-8 images and you have your own little table top slideshow.
Select A Theme
When you press the Favorite Channels button, you see the following display:
I noticed there are only 16 "Favorite Channels". I wouldn't mind having more. 32 favorite channels would be better. One of the reasons I suggest this, is the number of channels available on your average satellite or cable system, will more than likely number in the hundreds.
