Firstly - I like many of you are on the hunt for a good programmable remote, but I am some what nervous about shelling out large sums of hard-earned dosh to find that the goods don't come up to expectation.... ...so, this is why its so imortant to get feeback from you guys out there and hopefully I can avoid another expensive mistake! I bought a top range pronto (can't remember what version) about 2 years ago, but found that the PC software was absolutely pants and I had so many installation issues, and Philips were absolutely disinterested - I ended up throwing the damn thing in the bin - yes over 300 quids worth! Unless things have dramatically changed I am obviously a little worried about going this route - but I have to say - I like what I see in the 980/TSU7000 models. Secondly - having cruised eBay I have found a UK dealer that says that the US version(TSU) is better (something about the extender option), and he is willing to provide full UK warranty, and a UK plug.... What are the real differences? - will the US version work with all my Uk standard AV equipment? (meridian G98 - panasonic DVD writer - Pioneer XDE 43" - Pioneer AV amp, Sky +) Thirdly - I have read lots of good things about the Home Theatre Master MX3000, and since the price is not a million miles away from the Pronto RU980-NG, and it appears to have better PC software, although there doesn't seem to be many real reviews - any one out there either done a comparison or has one and is willing to comment in depth on it? I await your comments, oh wise ones!
