Yeah, I would love to, but I would need the model 688 (because of Tivo), and
I don't feel like spending $150 right now.

I'm buying these two from Amazon. They're both dirt cheap, supposedly
handle Tivo, and I'll send back the one I like less (or both of them!)

Anyone using either of these? Happy?

Also can't wait to see the new Harmony 880 -- apparently not out yet. Color
LCD screen! Same list price as the 688! Now THAT would be something!

I'm using the Harmony 679 with my Tivo and it works great. It also
works great with my Squeezebox. I don't think you need the 688, in fact
if you go to the Harmony forum at RemoteCentral.com almost everyone
there will tell you that the button layout of the 679 is better. I've
been able to compare the 688 and 679 and I like the 679 better myself
too. That doesn't solve the $150 issue as they are around that if you
get them off the Internet. Much more in a store though.

I assume you mean the 659 - Office Depot has it for $96.95;
nextwarehouse.com has it for $94.15, free shipping. I've seen it as low
as the mid 80s.

Actually it is the 676 I'm talking about. I did mess up the model
number. Here is a link:

OK, that one's a little more expensive than the 659 - nextwave.com shows
it for $121 delivered.
