    Looking at the differences between the Philips Prontos

    (http://www.pronto.philips.com/index.cfm?id=524)

    it seems only the ProntoPro NG (RU980/TSU7000) has the "timer" feature. This doesn't seem to be covered in the specifications PDF file.

    Does anyone know what this feature is?

    The timer function on the RU980 allows you to set the time and date (and repeat frequency) of specified actions and macros. The following was lifted from the Pronto Pro NG Manual;

    "Your ProntoPro NG is able to set timers for certain actions to be carried out at any time you choose. Timers are not an entirely new feature of ProntoPro NG, but they are easier to use and better integrated with the configuration file. You can activate and deactivate the timers you created and you can also set them to repeat daily or weekly. For instance, you can have the lights switched on every day at sunset. You can also create a timer to set your VCR to record your favourite TV-show on Wednesday and Saturday."

    Hope this helps.
