    Just got my Pronto today (delivered in under 24 hours from Letsautomate.com !) and already I need some assistance.

    I logged onto Remote Central and downloaded what I thought was a file for my Toshiba TV. Turns out to be an entire AV system, with Sony, AKAI and Panasonic equipment also included. Trouble is, the 'Revert' button on this configuration is disabled so I cannot reset the Pronto to start again or to manually program in codes. Any suggestions as to how I retrieve this situation ??

    Thanks.

    I to have have a pronto, got it last week from Lets Automate, before you get into customizing it I recommend you read ALL of the Pronto FAQ, this will answer 90% of you querys and try posting on the Pront message board <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    If you haven't already got Pronto Edit from the Remote Central website then you should download this first. It is the basic tool for creating custom configurations (ccf's).

    The beauty of Pronto Edit is that you can take any ccf and strip off the things you don't want. This leaves just the bits you are interested in, then save it with a new file name.

    Now download your current Pronto ccf and remove the bits you don't want (usually all the Philips DVD player/Amps etc), save, then merge the previously edited ccf. Re-save the updated file.

    Repeat as neccessary robbing other peoples ccf's for the appropriate bits for your system. If you get stuck for codes that aren't in the ccf galley at Remote Central you can always learn your own.

    Check out the Remote Central help guides and forum for more info. You'll soon find the Pronto programming is much easier than you thought.

    Tip: I keep two ccf's for my own system. One is a standard version so the Pronto is always ready for use. The second is a sort of work in progress, this lets me play around with new programming without having the remote out of action for long periods of time. Once I'm happy with the new set-up this becomes the standard configuration.

    Good luck

    PS Although I work for Philips I'm not involved with the Pronto product line. My knowledge is from using my own Pronto and reading the forums.
