    I bought a cambridge m1 enhanced remote from richer sounds a few years ago, i took out an extended waranty with a buy back option, the value of that is £40, which is only £9 less than a new one.

    So im thinking of getting a new remote, any suggestions ?


    Thanks

    Prontos are starting to come up secondhand for well under £100.

    The original version (and the Marantz equivalent RC5000) have 1 Meg of memory which is enough to run just about every IR device in the average HC household unless your name happens to be Bill Gates.

    Programming is a bit of a learning curve, but you do have the advantage of PC software and access to thousands of other peoples set-ups for inspiration or just plain piracy :D

    Regards

    Remote Central is THE web site for sharing programming and software downloads. I'm sure it will have been mentioned many times in the Remote Controls section of this very forum. Check it out, it's a great resource!
