Remote Control

I am looking to consolidate my remotes into the programmable remotes that look like PDA's. Are there any suggested brands? What are the common prices to pay for these? Thanks for the help.

People really seem to love the Pronto. Don't know the model or price (high, I believe).

If you'd rather not spend hundreds of dollars, I would suggest an UEIC remote. I've become somewhat of a shill for them.

Also if you own a PDA already they have modules and programs that can transform your PDA into a remote. Not a bad idea if you want to save some cash. But That new Pronto is really sweet.

The Pronto will set you back about $240, add the charger and it is closer to $300-320!
