    Anyone know what happened to the RF part that was due for the UK last month?
    This is the kit that contains the RF box (I think) and the RF/IR emitters.

    I have it and it works. Not like crestron adn amx but does the trick....sort of.

    I had issues with functionality of the thing as once you made a DEVICE rf controlled then every command on a page for that device and in it's properties would be sent as RF. Even if the command was an alias to an IR controlled item the command would be sent in RF...which is a major pain in the arse.

    However, I have just downloaded latest pronto pro firmaware and software and I hope that they will have solved this issue. Not looked or tried it since.

    Now not all codes are able to be turned in to RF. Sky Plus is though, which was my major concern. Also there is a lag between hitting button and command coming out in IR. It's not instantaneous like IR or Crestron/AMX. Still it is cheaper.

    I can also confirm I got a US RF station working with a UK Pronto Pro....
