    I'm considering buying a new PDA and I would like to use it as a remote control (amongst other things...). I like the NetRemote software but it doesn't seem to support any type of IR extender. I therefore need a PDA with a powerful IR range and have read somewhere that the Ipaqs are pretty good. Unfortunately the rx3715 is fairly new and I can't find anything that specifically gives details on this particular model (I have also noticed that not all Ipaqs have the same range). The rx3715 comes with Nevo Universal Remote so I'm guessing it can't be that bad but has anybody actually tried it?? :smashin:

    i got the rx3715 and its excellent
    the nevo software is very intuitive

    you can set it up for different rooms, i have lounge tv stuff, projector, amp etc. bedroom, kids rooms, sky+ even the dvd in the car is set up on it.

    the ir is consumer so no worries there

    the rx3715 is termed as a multimedia companion by ipaq, and it does so much more, i just set up tomtom navigator 3.07 on it and waiting for fortuna bluetooth gps receiver

    it has wifi built in to, with the ability to stream content to the pda from your pc that can be used as a multimedia server

    i have wifi set up and regularly stream music vids onto it whilst surfing about, its very fast

    i am very happy with it, the graphics are very nice to

    www.mynevo.com

    i got mine from www.eurosimm.co.uk
    i had a dead pixel on he first one they sent and they replaced it no bother within a week.

    regards

    kewl
    im sure you wont be disapointed

    im writing this now on the pda now, was just checking mail while watching movie, switching between remotes can be a pain, but you can set up your remote to include the amp volume on your dvd so you dont have to switch too much

    ive never used the pronto so i cantrate this againt that but it is kewl

    since last post i checked nevo website where you can downloadnew graphics

    I've been looking at the user manual on one of the links you sent me and have another question....

    It says that you can stream music etc to the ipaq over a wireless network. However, it says you can't stream copy protected music. Is this referring to the standard copyright of any cd (I have noticed that nearly all cd's have a copyright file when you copy them onto your pc) or just the copy protection setting in media player??

    Thanks again
    Simon
