    Anyone who owns this remote?

    I'd appreciate some views as I see very little on this.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I've got one!

    Damned expensive but very good!

    The colour screen makes a huge difference and it doesn't buzz!
    The added hard buttons and increased screen space make it much
    much better to work with.
    It also comes with the RF extender.

    I've spent hundreds of hours programming mine and its awsome!

    A couple of downers though.. the battery life is pooh!
    A couple of days heavy use and it needs recharging.
    Also, the extra hard buttons on the bottom of the remote are not backlit, so you can't see them in the dark.

    But.. I wouldn't and couldn't do without mine though.

    In my opinion, if you can do without the Timers on a Prontopro, then a RC9200 is a much better unit for controlling you HC.

    Whether its worth £800 is very questionable, but then if you want the best you have to pay for it.

    I am very seriously thinking to go ahead and buy the RC9200.

    Does the rc9200 have timers? The last thread reply suggests not?

    Thanks

    No, it doesn't have timers.

    As a previous pronto owner I thought I might miss them.
    But I don't.
    In my opinion, the timers are a 'nice to have' item, whereas the added screen space, extra hard buttons and 'back' memory are essenial.
