Bought the pronto 2mb last week and sheesh! I no computer newbie but it seems as if Philips have gone out of their way to make this the most difficult remote to use. I'm determined to make it work - I love the idea of having a really lazy remote control (only having to press one button where I used to have to press about five) Also I've looked on remotecentral.com and found the same question raised - why is there no beginners guide to programming the pronto. Even unofficial. Anyway I'm off now to waste the rest of the week programming my remote.
