      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Logitech Remote Control Units 550 vs 880

OK Techno-geeks,

What say ye? Looking at adding a universal remote and I think I have narrowed it down to either the 550 at somewhere between $75 and $85 or the 880 at $150. Does anyone have either or have you compared the two? Are there any other brands or models worth exploring around the same price point?

I tried a 520 and it did not work. Am taking it back this morning. I think it is a good product, just got one that was bad. I will try another.

Not sure on the new model but a buck fifty is about as high as I would like to leap on this product.

The new model I believe is the 1000 and runs about 420-450.. \:\)

As for the differences in the models, what all are you looking to "run" with this remote? (TV, DVD, home theater..etc)

Some of the obvious differences are:

550 - none color screen, runs on 4 AAA batteries

880 - color screen, has a A/C charger base to charge the remote

The 550 model is a nice model. My brother has this remote and hasn't had an issue with it. It'll replace (most...probably all) of your remotes and handle all of the basic functions. I haven't played with his remote enough but all in all....it did everything he needs on a daily basis with his tv, dvd, and home theater system. You can control up to 12 devices...(some of those can even be lights and appliances)

The 880 will do all of the above with a color screen, rechargable, and will control up to 15 devices.

Can't go wrong with either remotes. Both are very nice. Both models have the ability to be setup connected to your pc and also both have the "learning" capability for older remotes.

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to let you all know that I just scored the Harmony 880 on amazon. Regular price was $149 with free shipping but I got a $50 discount code (GXWCVCLQ) off of slick deals. Total paid was $99 with free shipping and the unit is new, no refurb, and will arrive on March 13th. Sweet!

Thanks for all the imput. I wanted to share this with anybody else looking to step up to the Harmony.

I don't know how familiar any of you are with X10 products. I have been using their lighting controls for years now to remote control my lights. Well, they just came out with a remote very comparable to the 880 but for only $59.99. It's call the IconRemote. You can google it or go to the x10 site. If you haven't seen any x10 stuff before, take a look. You can rig your house like your the jetsons for not a lot of money.

Sandman,

I did do some research on the X10 and it got some pretty good reviews. The thing I like about the Harmony is mostly for my wife where it asks her what she wants to do, watch tv, play a dvd, etc and it will turn on all needed equipment and do all the settings. I need a point and click for her as she is truly old school and not very techno-savvy. I ran it by my geek squad at work and they all seemed impressed but the Harmony was the remote of choice, maybe based on it's name or reputation. I know that the X10 takes 4 batteries vs a rechargable for the Harmony. We shall see! Thanks for the info.

Yea, you can't go wrong with the Harmony, this one is a little cheaper and you can have the jetson house is all. I've got the 659 Harmony (actually 2) and love them.

So Sandman,

Will this thing really do everything for all the remotes? I am trying to find something that will totally replace all of them: my Comcast remote for my cable, my Samsung for the TV, my Denon for the receiver and my LG for the DVD/Tape player. I am thinking about adding an Ipod dock and really crank it up a notch. Just got done installing ceiling speakers and a kickin sub.

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
