macro "frenzy"

I have a Kameleon one for all (6) , but its a little useless on macros.

I would love a remote with a screen of macros "logos" to say switch to a favourite sky channel, switch the amp for audio, then say switch the tv input to a cctv feed and the amp again for audio.

Anyone advise to the perfect solution please?

Hi,

How much money have you got :)

Logitech remote slightly cheaper, but will do everything you want, plus lots more. Pronto type of remote (Philips/Marantz) will do everything you want, plus lots lots more, but more expensive. Those are the preferred options on this forum, but obviously lots of models in each. Money, complexity of your set-up, and how much patience you have are the main drivers as to which one you want to go for.

Cheers

Andy

Agreed but having had both the pronto and harmany, I would say that the harmony is 10 times easier to set up and the pronto is slightly more versitial, on the whole I have given my pronto to my brother and am very happy with the Harmony 885

I was hoping to spend less than£200 to acheive this, although i would go higher if it gave me what i want.

The Logitech Harmony 885 sounds like the one for you then. Check out the numerous :) threads on the 885 here at the moment. Take a test drive on their website as well to see if it's the one for you.

The Pronto 7000 is the one for me.

Ebay have a few, £260 for a Philips factory recon one.

Anyone tried this?
