Microsoft and Logitech working to make the Harmony work with the Kinect IR.
11/22/13 UPDATE: Logitech just updated MyHarmony.com with support for the Xbox One. Head over to the site in order to update your Harmony remote control.
Polygon is reporting that Logitech is working with Microsoft to enable day one support one the Xbox One for the Harmony line of universal remotes. Hopefully, the move signals a renewed interest in the Harmony line by Logitech, which has suffered in many users' eyes from a now abandoned plan to sell off the division and from a continuing focus on smartphone integration.
From Polygon, "Logitech is working with Microsoft so that its Harmony line of universal remote controls will support the Xbox One when it launches this Friday, Nov. 22, a representative for Logitech told Polygon."
"'We are working directly with the Xbox team at MSFT to have Harmony support on Day 1 of Xbox One launch,' the representative said."
