How to program a Logitech Harmony remote

CNET's favorite line of universal remotes takes the pain out of the set-up process, letting you configure everything with your PC. Brian Cooley shows you how to get started.

Universal remotes come in all shapes and sizes, but our top pick for controlling your entire home theater with one gadget is the Logitech Harmony remote.

The Harmony remote's greatest standout feature is its easy setup process. Instead of punching in complicated codes and using the remote's on-screen display, the entire configuration process is done on a Web site.

To get started, you'll need:

  • A list of all your home entertainment gear by model number
  • An internet PC with IE, FF or a Mac with Safari (not Chrome)
  • A USB cable
  • A Harmony remote

Grab those items and watch this how-to video to set up your universal remote:
