    Hi all.

    I would like to buy a nice "remote control" for my home theatre that will control my Arcam DV79, AVR300, Skybox and Panny plasma. :lease:

    However.......................................... :rolleyes:

    There are three considerations

    1) Don't want to go to the wild Crestron Price level!! :eek:

    2) Don't want to drop to the Monochrome, small screen Marantz 5400 style unit. :suicide:

    3) (The Killer) unit must be able to output in some format, possibly RF, RS232 style commands. This will allow me to feed these commands straight into the RS232 input on my Panny PWD5 Plasma. Why? So that I can tell it to go straight to inputs such as "PC" or "Component" etc, without using the normal IR remote which forces you to step through all the inputs one by one!!

    If anybody can help by suggesting a unit, together with a receiver that can then put the RS232 commands into the Plasma via it's RS232 socket, they will deserve a medal.

    Many thanks, Gerald. :smashin:
