Has anyone seen that big beast of a remote ozzy uses (touch screen rectangular thing) I'd love something that big to control everything. I really need it to have bluetooth to run pc functions as well??
the only problem with the AMX/crestron remotes is they need programming by a professional - not very end user friendly. also, there is a lot of electronics that sit behind the remote to make it work - i guess you wouldn't get much change from £5k!
not really but do take time to get right the touch screen isnt the remote its ust an interface unit the remote is the size of an AV AMP!!!! a pronto pro is the closest you will get for £1k but it has issues for less wonga you can go the PDA/web pad routes!!!!
AMX ViewPoint touchpanels, such as Ozzy's, can by programmed as a standalone, though very expensive, IR remote control without the need for an integrated controller, whether an AV Receiver sized one or a much more compact version.
Worth also looking at the theatre Master 3000. Retails for around £600 and stonks the pronto in my opinion. Got mine 1 week ago and already have it working a trat, with animated gif buttons and sound effects as well. An absoloute joy to use. I have had a simpad and a colour pronto 970 before and prefer my new baby.
