Quote from: MD on August 31, 2021, 06:43:28 PMHi everyone,My U4 remote is getting "tired" with unreliable button presses (especially the skip ones!) so I traced a new Logitech Harmony via eBay as they are no longer in production. However, the setup is gruelling! Has anyone any advice as to how to do it easily and reasonably quickly?

We recommend holding off on upgrading to macOS 11.0 Big Sur if you need to access your remote's account. You can continue accessing your Logitech Harmony Remote Software account by using a Windows computer or a mac computer running macOS 10.15 or lower."

As far as I am concerned, without any more recent application, My Harmony should not be classified as legacy.

The latter is really old, it predates my purchase of a Harmony 785 in 2008. Logitech Harmony Remote Software actually has been updated to run on the "64-bit only" MacOs versions (Catalina and later), but you wouldn't know it from their Web pages.

The device is getting nearer to the bin by the minute!!!
