    I'd agree with pizzacheaze, spend a few hours reading the reviews on remotecentral.com. Once you've chosen your remote make sure you look at user reviews as there are loads for each remote. I used this site to help me choose my remote, a Home Theater Master MX-500 which I bought for £105 from fpsgamer (http://www.fpsgamer.co.uk/hcinema/MX-500.htm ). Excellent remote as it has both an LCD display and hard buttons which I like.

    Happy hunting...

    Agree with the Pronto route... and taking a long look at remote-central....
    One thing though... if you were to change to a digital NTL box in the future, some don't work with Pronto (and other learning remotes) and you have to get a small 'adapter' to "translate" the codes from Pronto (or the others) to a format that the box will understand.
    Take a look here to see what I'm on about.
    It's exactly what I've done - and it works a treat!:smashin:

    Keep us posted on the software, the NG mono is awful, only works 20% of the time. I've found it easier to do the configuration on prontoedit4 and convert it to a .pcf than try to learn anything on the NG. I'd love the colour one to be better.
