"Unofficial*" request to bring sequences to the 900 and 1100

[ Edited ]

PLEASE READ FIRST!

1. please only post once in the thread (so that replies = # of 'signatures')

2. please only post if you want to see sequences added to the 900 and 1100 (if it's even technically possible)

3. know that we said this would be a large issue of contention when it came up in each beta test, but we made no ground on logitech...hopefully this might help

4. to clarify for those not familiar, sequences are NOT activities.  activities (which still exist) are 'fluid' combinations of commands based on the remotes 'current state'....sequences are what everyone else calls macros.  they are a fixed set string of commands, regardless of anything else.

 

 

and away we go....

I, Wannabe Actuary, officially sign my name to the petition asking for sequences on these two remotes.

EDIT - I've received word from logitech that 1. this won't be made a sticky, so if you feel this is important, be sure to sign the petition and keep it near the top for others to find and 2. feedback from THIS thread WILL be passed on to the development team (at least for future remotes).  So, the more signatures the better our chances are of getting sequences back for future remotes, if not on these two (but we can hope).
UPDATE to clarify - this is not, and likely will never be, an 'official' document.  I'm calling it the 'official' petition so that other threads/comments about the lack of sequences don't pop up and get separated.  Our best effort is to keep this clean and concise so that the feedback can be passed on to the development team in as easy a manner as possible.  Separate threads make it harder to pass the feedback to the development team and will confuse future posters that would like to sign the petition and have their voice heard.  Calling it the 'official' petition, in order to keep in to one thread is a common technique among other boards like the AVSforum.
THANKS IN ADVANCE for sticking to the guidelines above and doing what you can to help create the best remotes possible

I figure this should go here as well

 

This is a triple blow No Sound/Picture Buttons, Multi Room capabilties, Or Sequences.  This has kept me from the 1100 and now the 900.  All of these features I use.  Not sure why we are going backwards.  And with the 890 pro discontinued they will lose customers that need these(mostly the Multi Room).  Activities just can't handle Multi Room functions as elegantly as I would like.  The things I was willing to deal with(like plugging in the extender) where fixed while removing some of the more advanced feature I come to love. 

 

Edit I broke down and bought an 1100

Sign me up for the petition!

 

If Logitech wants a 900 sale from me it is a must have. I rely heavily on sequences to run my PC from my One, and I could not accomplish this on the 900...

Hereby signed.

The signatures of those who already have a 900 or 1100 won't count much - but the first comments from potential 900 buyers have all included the point, and already some have said clearly that it is a definite no-no, so maybe their voices will sound louder.

Sign me up on this petition, too!

 

I am considering upgrading my Harmony One to a Harmony 900, but have reservations about taking a step backwards when it comes to sequence capability with the 900.   If I can't access a device without a sequence, what good is the RF non-directionality?  I would have to stick with the IR Harmony One, or consider a different RF remote from another maker.
