It would be much better if the programing software could handle a local database for your devices with code upload options to the logitech database rather than being forced to always connect to the logitech database. But logitech is more interested in mining your data than producing the best possible user experience.
The possibilities were that you had a good remote when programed and working but the reality is likely a potential PITA to reprogram when buying other equipment!!
And yes, logitech should have produced a remore with BT & IR capabilities integrated in the hanset but instead they choose a to sell an RF handset (with IR spiders) along with a further BT addons (which is controlled by IR). Clunky at best but consuming too many power points!!
Yeah, I don't like the BT transmitter add-on, because I actually use my PS3 remote from all over the house when I'm doing things. Totally defeats the purpose of using a RF technology when you have to be in the line of sight.
