Just thinking aloud... er.. in type.

Wouldn't it be cool if the new touch interface would run on the Harmony 1100 remote?

And the Harmony 1000 too.

The hardware is completely different, there would be no way to have SqueezeOS back ported to a Harmony remote. Basically you would need to turn a Controller into a Harmony, rather than turning a Harmony into a Controller.

I've never used a harmony remote, but I guess they could change their interface to be similar, but as I'm sure they have different customer bases (with some overlap) it probably isn't appropriate to do so.

It's not impossible. I remember some well known community member having
done it.

Really? I missed that :)

I just remember someone, and I think it was a Logitech employee, saying they were completely different animals.

I do think it would be exciting if the hardware was similar enough that the two devisions could learn from each other. Could also make some interesting cross developments.

Really?? I remember people getting various IR stuff working on an SBC, but not the other way around. Must have missed something.
