Obviously don't want to pay more than what I could buy a new system for as I just need the remote. Anyone have one they'll part with for a case of beer or something
Send me a PM. Thanks guys.
If you're somewhat computer literate, look around for a USED Pronto unit (made by Phillips in the Netherlands). I say used because they are VERY expensive new. I say computer literate, because you have to program the Pronto via your PC.
The Pronto is probably THE ultimate all-in-one remote. You should NEVER outgrow it. DW loves it because you can (for example) turn everything off/on with a single button.
Also, with only ONE button (again, for example) you can set up ALL individual pieces of your gear(like TV, surround sound, etc) to watch a movie, watch TV over satellite, watch TV OTA, etc, etc.... No need to have 5 remotes laying around.
May be fancier than what you want, both from a $$$ standpoint and a "techy" standpoint.
You might be able to find one for $100-200 used; new they were right at $1000.
