    Anyone know where I could get a replacement Pronto Pro programming cable?

    I'm a total scatter brain, I have a pronto, marantz 5000 and a pronto pro and managed to lose all three cables.:eek:

    Don't know about buying one, but you could build one, it's easy enough and is the same as the serial cable used to hack a Tivo via the rear port (which is how I found it). It's only 3 wires and is real simple.

    Diagram here

    it even tells you at the bottom you can use your pronto cable to access the Tivo.

    I built one in about 15 mins and the bit's cost under a fiver from maplins.

    Jason S,

    That information was very helpful. I will have a go at building one.

    Thanks very much.
