I have been using it with my Harmony remote for years. I use it to download Logitech's collection of drivers for the various audio/video devices in my system. Much easier than going to each component manufacturer to get the remote control drivers. And it is way easier than pointing remotes at each other and programming the Harmony one command at a time. So far have found only one remote has incomplete information but it has over 400 commands!
