Hi All, In the blue-corner, weighing in at 180 pounds, the Pronto RU980. And in the red-corner, weighing in at a even 200 pounds a PDA. My second Pronto has given up the ghost! So i'm after another remote. I found some links regarding PDA's being used as a remote and quite fancied the idea. I'm undeciced whether to get another Pronto or get a PDA this time. I know sod-all about PDA's, but i've been trying to read up on them a bit. I quite fancy the Compaq / HP iPaq or something like that, i don't want to spend more than £200. Round 1: Distance I hear the PDA's have poor signal, distance and angle wise. But isn't there an extender that would fix this? Ultramote or something. I've never had a problem with the pronto, no matter where it is or where it's pointing. 10-8 round to Pronto. Round 2: Style/Looks The PDA's seem to be half the width of the Pronto and lOOk a lot more stylish. 10-8 round to PDA. Round 3: Function I quite fancy a PDA, as i have my movies in a s/sheet, (sad-o i know), so the wifey could flick through the list, check the imdb review via WiFi before selecting a movie. Plus i have the ability to develop mClient applications, so i could have a movie app on there. They're colour, the grey pronto gets to me sometimes. They support CCFs etc etc etc.. (Plus the added bonus of being a mini pc) 10-8 to PDA Round 4: Location My seated area faces the av equipment, about 10-12ft away. I'm planning to house the equiment in the wall though, with a glass panel front. I'm pretty sure the pronto would still function fine, but would a PDA?? 10-9 to Pronto. I have the PDA ahead in this contest, slightly. I'd like to hear anyones comments/suggestions on this to help me decide the Middleweight Remote Championship of the world!!!
