I really would like the logitech to put back the sequence feature.
It is a shame that other cheaper logitech remotes have this feature and not the better one.

Cheaper models don't officially have sequences either. They don't exist in the myharmony software logitech wants you to use with all new models. The fact it still exists in the old software is probably just because they don't have the budget to remove it, thank goodness.
So it started with the 900 and was carried through all subsequent models: One+, Link, 200, 300, 600, 650 and 700, just as I feared it would over 2 years ago. The days of a fully functional harmony are over.
As I've said many times before the One-For-All / Acoustic Research Xsight line is an excellent alternative that fixes most of harmony's self-inflicted wounds. They're cheaper, have unlimited macros (sequences), a single login to manage all remotes on your account, many more devices, and activities and devices can be arranged any way you like. You can even edit all steps in activities, add any delays you like and even adjust the backlight timeout. The only drawback is no state tracking. But logitech is looking to kill that feature in their own remotes anyway. It's like Disney getting rid of Mickey Mouse. Another brilliant move by logitech. It's really sad to see such a once great product destroyed by ignorance and incompetence.

I still have time to return my 900 and go back to my old 880, or maybe just buy a different brand that others have recommended on this forum. Are you listening Logitech? Bring back sequences!

Come on....is it not time to close this thread? It has been going for 3years and all Logitech have said is they will not be reinstating sequences. The software has not been updated for 2years and even then it was just a Win7 update with the functionaliy remaining the same. Even though they promised to add button icons this has never happened so I think we should just move on lol. Have to say that new touch One for All remote looks interesting but as Logitech remains one of the few remotes to support the PS3...I think I will be putting up with the lack of sequences.

Technically their adapter supports the PS3. Any remote that takes pronto hex or JP1 codes can also use the logitech PS3 adapter. Besides, many remotes support the PS3 just fine. One-for-all has a PS3 adapter that works with the Xsight. And there are tons of PS3 USB IR adapters that work with any remote. And HDMI CEC works so well, you don't really need any adapter at all.
But getting back on topic. I think there is still hope. They asked about sequences in their latest survey. Remote sales are down this year as well, so maybe they will start listening to customers and add back features that all their competitors have.
Even if nothing comes of it, this thread is useful for venting and for warning others to stay far away from harmony remotes.

Unforunatelly I have purchased a Harmony 1100 and just realized that sequences are not allowed.
The idea when I purchase this expensive remote was to control not only TV or MediaCenter but also my Couch and Shades; and I need sequences for that.
Well it is my my fault not to read the forum from botton to top...
