    I currently have the following setup with a basket full of remotes.
    Philips 32inch plasma
    Toshiba 210 DVD
    Grundig satalite digibox
    JVC S-VHS video
    Videologic Digitheater DTS surround

    I want a single remote to control them all, the ones I have been thinking about are
    Pronto £150
    Home Theater MX500 £100
    Kameleon £70
    Mozaic £70

    Any opinions on these remotes or other worth considering ?

    Had my Pronto for about a Month now and no regrets.
    Recommend you getting one!!

    P.S. See the "One for all Kameleon or Pronto RU940?" thread in this section to eliminate one of the controls on your list.

    first you need to understand if you prefer hard button remotes or touch screen....

    i prefer hard button and for that i believe an MX-500 is the best for the price (better only mx-700; mx-800)

    If you prefer buttoned remotes and you want a less expensive option, you could get a One For All remote and a JP1 cable, then you would absolutely be able to control everything. Here is the US alot of MX500 owners also buy an OFA remote and a JP1 cable, they get the OFA remote for the sole surpose of programming the MX500.

    Take a look at http://www.bluedo.com and http://www.surfremotecontrol.com and you'll see that they offer the MX500 as a package with an OFA remote and JP1 cable.

    Given how expensive remotes are in the UK, it's probably cheaper to get one from them than to buy it locally!

    And as a UK customer for whom Rob has aquired a US OFA remote, I can highly recommend them. Even including shipping, I paid less than the UK price of a OFA6, plus have a remote with many more buttons which can do pretty much everything a Pronto can ! And it only took a few days to reach me.
