I'm just curious how good the screen is on the Duet controller.

I was pretty disappointed in the screen on the 880 but it gets the job done. But I would hope the screen on the Duet is much nicer. But I can't help think it may be the same quality screen based on the "similated" screens shown on both on ad's and such.

So how good is the screen?

From what I saw at CES, it was pretty good. I can't wait to get one.

It's a lot better than the screen on the 880, and is larger too. Without doing an exhaustive side by side comparison, I'd say it's basically a smaller version of the iPhone screen.

Yes, it's MUCH better than the 880 screen.

More than the specs, it looks great to my eyes.
And the Controller has a nice feel.

I have both a Harmony 885 (Euro version of the 880) and a beta Controller. The Controller's screen is *much* better - bigger, brighter, clearer.

I currently use the Handheld Web Interface on a PDA for controlling my Transporter. I am interested in the new SB Controller, one thing I like being able to do on the Web Interface is key in part of a track name, either the beginning, middle or end of the name and it finds the track. This also appies to artist and album searches too. Will I be able to do this on the SB Controller?

This was a major negative for me with the Sonos Remote. Apparently it would only allow you to search from the beginning of the name. It would not allow you to search with a word from the middle or end of an artist or track name.

Yes, it works just like Search on the web interface.
