    Hi,


    Does anyone know where I might get hold of a Home Theatre Master MX500 remote in the UK?

    Purchased it direct from Universal Remote Control in the US.

    Thanks!

    I guess I should have tried that really.

    Home Theater Master Products are available from Minshull Oak on 01270 626379. I think their website is Mishulloak.co.uk or .com.

    So - did you get one mixmanx?

    I tried Minshull Oak & Home Theater Master but their prices are tres high - £135 or $189. People posting in the Remote Central website (US customers) pay no more than $120 ish, about £85...

    Any pointers would be much appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Chris

    No. I couldn't find anywhere to get one on the net, and never got around to ringing Minshull. I've just finished moving house, so all my gear has been packed up fior a few weeks.

    Post here if you manage to get one at a reasonable price, as I'm still after a remote of some sort.

    I tried to e-mail Minshull but it bounced - I'll try phoning today.

    I've also e-mailed someone who posted a review of the MX-500 on the Remote Central website. He's a UK customer but says he bought from the US somehow - could be a useful link if he replies.

    I'll keep you posted,

    Chris

    Well progress is slow but there is some...

    Minshull have been e-mailed and phoned but have not replied yet. (I was quoted £130 for the MX-500 on the phone which included p+p. Better than £135 but not much!)

    The guy who posted on Remote Central contacted me and sent me (indirectly) to:

    www.bluedo.com.

    They have the stuff - and only $120 plus shipping but I can't find out how much shipping is! (There's fault with their order page.) I've e-mailed them & will let you know...

    Cheers,

    Chris

    P.S. The guy who e-mailed me paid £130 for his MX-500 a year ago - but loves it!

    Shipping seems to be $45 on www.bluedo.com , which is about £105 with the chance of being stung by customs. :(

    Might be just safer to get one at Minshull. Did they have them in stock?

    I just had a reply from bluedo - it seems they've updated their website today.

    So - $45 carriage, as you say. But the thing that you pointed out, which I'd totally forgotten about, is the blitherin' VAT. Poo! That'll take the price over £120 which means that it's better to go to Minshull really...

    I don't know if they have them in stock, they still haven't managed to reply. I'll be ordering from them tomorrow (on the phone to check stock) so I'll let you know.

    I didn't want to spend £130 on a remote but there you go - the guy who e-mailed me about bluedo actually sold his Pronto and got an MX-500. After a year he's still very happy.

    See you tomorrow!:D

    Chris

    Done it!

    MX-500 due next Wednesday(ish) - I got it for £115... Not a massive discount but I'm happy - I couldn't have got it cheaper even from the States (unless I got away with the VAT of course).

    Now, I really must get some work done...

    Cheers mixmanx,

    Chris
