On a related note: when your H3 is installed you may want to hang on to your older 40.0 remote. (Installers will tell you they have to take them. Wrong. They do not. Just insist on keeping them.) I have found I much prefer the convenience of the extra buttons on the 40.0 (which still works fine with the H3). My 52.0 remote that came with the H3 is now in a drawer.

I agree with Rick. I had no idea I could keep the old remote when I updated to H3. Remote 40 is about 23 bucks at Amazon. I found and bought one at Ebay. It cost only 13. No S&H. Almost brand new. Yes it is bigger and has many buttons. But, it is more functional.
Regarding voice activated remote, it sounds great. The question is how often you want to yell at your remote or receiver? I set up my Alexa Dot to activate voice commands for H3. Too much hassle. It gets old.
