The only tip that I would pass on is that the remote remembers the last combination that you asked it to set up and uses that memory to calculate moving through the settings to the ones next required. If you then use any original remote controls to change anything that you are using the 555 to control the next time that you use the 555 it may not give you the correct result. This is easily dealt with via a help button and once you have re-synchronised the remote with what you want the system to do it then carries on correctly.
Recommendation - once you've got it programmed lock the old remotes in a cupboard to prevent this problem
I have eight devices under control and set all these up before the activities. Logitech suggest a more measured approach. The one problem that this caused me with activities was that the automated system insisted on using the PVR as the TV tuner. This is easily overcome by creating an activity manually. I found the activities and devices could be amended and renamed without having to go through everything again as some have suggested.
The one non-trivial issue I had that may be of interest to some was with my Sony television. The remote that comes with it cycles through the inputs but this was not handled effectively by the activities set up on the 555. You can use the help function to correct this but that is not satisfactory. The answer is to set the television up using the second (of four) Logitech options with discrete buttons for each input device. Although the Sony TV remote did not have these buttons they were available on the Logitech site (for the tuner, AV and HDMI (also called AV by Logitech) inputs. I now have functionality improved significantly over the original Sony remote and all the activities work flawlessly.
You do need to find these answers for yourself though - Logitech support was prompt and courteous but simian in the intelligence of its response - which merely provided links to the online support material based on an apparently randomly selected fragment of the text of my request.
I unpacked the remote, installed the software (which then updated itself and the remote) and then used the wizard to setup the activities we need. I reckon within 10 minutes I had the basics down and working. I have since needed to update a couple of commands to ensure the DVD and VCR work as expected... however I am very very impressed with how simple this device is to use and how good it is. I think some of the less positive reviews must be for earlier software or firmware, and perhaps much more complex setups? In my opinion this is a dream to use and configure and very good value for money. Colleagues at work put me onto these remotes, one of them has the Harmony One (at £120?) - I can tell you now that unless you really need a touch screen this remote will do everything you are likely to need to do, and at a fraction of that price. Great product, well done Logitech (oh and Amazon shipped it on free delivery in 2 days flat, so thanks to them too!)
If, like me, you want to be able to do pretty much everything all your remotes do, including some of the more specialised functions, then you need to spend a bit more time after the initial set-up to fine tune the remotes functionality and buttons to match your exact requirements. I spent about 4 hours in total, but I did also enjoy exploring the functionality and the Logitech 555's ability to "learn" functions from your existing remote control units.
I can now do pretty much everything that my 5 remotes did, with just this excellent value Logitech 555 model. Received this morning, and fully functional and programmed by tea time.
