    I am after one of the above remotes

    As I understand it the 655 is the European version and has coloured buttons for Sky and Teletext use - however I can only find ONE place in the UK that is actually selling it (HiFiBitz) and the picture shown is of a model without the coloured buttons, which I understand is the US version

    So my questions are

    1> is the above correct ? and
    2> where can I actually buy one from ?

    Thanks

    Is there any other difference between the 659 and the 655 besides the coloured buttons ?

    Im not too sure - but obviously the coloured buttons are focused to the Uk market (teletext and I presume Sky+)

    My order with HiFiBitz was sorted with a quick phone call so its just a case of waiting

    That's good to know, but I can get the 659 model for 90 euros plus post so if the only difference is the four coloured buttons I think I could live with it, or even perhaps get Logitech UK to flog me a replacement rubber pad ;)

    Maybe if Hifibitz knows one way or the other on the physical aspects and/or differences ?

    Good choice - a few weeks in and I'm very pleased with mine. Couldn't be easier to use/set-up. Simple one handed operation with real buttons. Works for me!

    chachi - just spoken to the distributors and it seems that the only difference between the 655 and the 659 is the coloured 'Sky' buttons.
