    The buttons are indeed backlit. The buttons and the touch screen activate with motion.

    FYI... I never ended up getting them from the dealer I knew. cost was around 35-40% off retail, so not bad, but pricey enough that my current Harmony's are working fine.

    Which I don't understand! why not let others buy it? It's not like its a complicated system to set up!

    I'm not confident in their statement that the USB is only for power.

So if the hub only had a USB port for power, then how does the MyHarmony app know the hub is there? There is obviously some data communication there. So it really appears that Logitech just doesn't want to add support and they would rather have people buy the Pro unit (which costs a lot more).

    Also, when you use the harmony extender, it connects via USB. I guess it could just "know" that the device is there and connect wirelessly, but that seems pretty wasteful and unsecure.

    This is what Logitech support had to say:

    Thank you for writing back. I apologize as I will not be able to forward this as a feature request, please know that this concern has been brought up to our Product Management team already and this is the reason as to why we made the Harmony Pro 2400, the current Harmony Hub are not capable to deal with Ethernet as the micro USB port on this device is only there for power.

    Once again, thank you for taking the time to write to us.
    Please feel free to respond to this email.

    Thank you,
    Logitech Support

    Have you contacted Logitech to "suggest" this? I've contacted them in the past regarding this. If they get enough requests, that might add it in.

    They would need to add support for it. Part of it would be the appropriate driver. This is something that Logitech could easily add though. It is something that they should add.

    I agree with you. If Logitech wanted, they could add Ethernet (not PoE though) to the existing hub. The USB port is a data port, so why not sell or at least support a USB Ethernet adapter. Take the Amazon Fire TV stick; it has a USB port for powering the device but Amazon also sells a USB Ethernet adapter. If only someone sold one of those adapters that supported PoE. Anyway, Logitech could add Ethernet support if they wanted too.

    I was talking about the hub we all know and love. I would love a version with just Ethernet (A la Philips Hue Hub). I get why they put in wireless, most people would use it and yeah, adding both would probably be cheap, but this is the company that put in crappy wifi with no other alternative in their hub. their pinching pennies so if i have to have one or the other, I personally choose ethernet.
