    After ditching the piece of junk that is the 6 in 1 Kameleon, I am looking for a new remote. I don't want to spend more that £100, so what do people think is the best and why? Also, I have seen Philips ProntoNEO TSU500 for £99 on eBay. Is this remote any good?

    I bought a Logitech Harmony 655 from Dixons this morning for £99. Have set it up and it was dead easy.

    Now I just press one button to get up and running to watch TV, a DVD or listen to music. I had a look around some of the remote control threads last night and the Harmony 655 seemed well liked and at the moment I can see why.

    Will this control sky+ ok ?
    With all the pause rewinds functions etc ? ANd I assume the coloured buttons can emulate the sky remote's coloured buttons the same ?

    Im sick of my Wife keep 'tidying' the remotes away ( ok maybe 5 remotes does look a bit messy ) so i thought if this would do the lot I may have a result.

    Groove,

    You'll have to do a thread search on that one. I don't have sky+ so can't comment.
