    Richer Sounds are doing the Pronto for £150 It will do all that you need and more, so long as you can use a PC to configure it from. With this you can make stuff so simple anyone coulduse it, for instance I have one button labled DVD that switches the TV to AV4 the Amp on and to DVD input and then puts the DVD navigation controls on screen, even my 6 year old can use it:D

    I could well be wrong, but I don't think you will get this functionality elsewhere for less money.

    Hey,

    Having just bought the Pronto2mb from Richer sounds this weekend I can really recomend it. One of its best features in my book is that you have different views for differnet people. If like me you are one to get the most out of a device then you can have buttons here, buttons there .... but then simply give it to the wife, she presses her name on the scree and has 4 buttons in front of her (for example I wanna watch sky, I wanna watch a dvd, I wanna listen to radio, turn it all off)

    Trusts me - its great - and even the wife agrees !

    nige
