I consider it a safe assumption that most of us are in the same boat.
I bought YIO 1 and was out of my comfort zone to be honest. I bought it to control Roon and that didnt end well (my fault). With the remote 2 being more user friendly and having roon integration Im super excited to get my hands on one.
Very excited too
Are there any dates yet when we may be able to get our hands on these, my harmony is ready to die at any moment
Still waiting for PCB …
I am also waiting on general availability for this (I think I’m on the waitlist three times because I kept forgetting I was already on the waitlist). When Harmony announced they were discontinuing everything, I bought another Hub/remote as a backup, and the one I have running is working fine, but I’m ready to be on a platform that doesn’t require a connection to a cloud service that could go away anytime (the Hub annoyingly checks remotely for updates every time you connect to it).
I did exactly the same… Works well, I wonder if a small team of Unfolded Circle will reach similar controlled devices coverage. Keeping fingers crossed for having enough customers to cover the continuous development cost.
For years I wanted to Switch to a Logitech harmony - but since it was Something without top priority it never happened… So far.
Finally, after getting to the Point that I had MS Smarthome Set Up and could Focus on TV remote stuff, I found Out that harmony will be shut down.
Now, I am searching for a replacement, that will Work with HomeAssistant… And will also Support some devices Like the Telekom Magenta Receiver (Germany)… I am Not Sure, If the remote two will Support those… And the price tag isn’t Something that I would by Just for ‘let’s try it out’ …
Are there any Information available already about supported devices etc.?
If the receiver supports IR you will be able to learn the codes from the original remote. Or these will already be included in the IR-database. Unfortunately the current simulator vm image only includes a dummy IR database.
If the receiver supports IP-control or Bluetooth and the documentation about this is publicly available someone could write an integration driver for that device as well.
If a HA integration already exists for that device you could also control it via the HA integration on the remote.
Marton mentioned that there will be a voting system where anyone can request an integration and vote on already requested ones. They try to priorities based on this list the development of these and you’ll be able to follow it online as well.
