    Are you guys that have purchased either a Harmony Elite or a Harmony 950 still happy with them? My Harmony One is dying and I've got to get something to replace it before it becomes unusable.
    Thanks for any input.

    I've had a Harmony Elite for about 2 years. Still happy with it and just recommended one to someone at work. I wouldn't hesitate to get another one. It's a bit more responsive via the Ipad App, but still use the remote about 95% of the time.

    I did the same replacement as you. Old Harmony One was dying and replaced it with the Harmony Elite. That was an excellent upgrade. Faster response, easy setup, RF, etc.

    I remapped the FF/Rew buttons since the Elite combines > and >| into one button and I wanted to quick press vs long press to function opposite of the default for the DVR. Once that was done I was pretty happy with the end result.

    I finally got off my butt and bought the Elite. That was right after my wife got the system locked up one day with the One and asked "When are you going to buy that new remote?" I can take a hint. What a difference in performance. It's much more responsive and I'm very happy with it.
    The only bummer was that I was never able to just transfer my settings from the One to the Elite. I think you're supposed to be able to do that, but I couldn't make it happen no matter what I tried. I just went ahead and programmed it from scratch and it works like a champ.
