Summary: 1. User guide didn't match the software for Pronto Edit. I downloaded the latest version of pronto edit from the website because the software that came with the disk was an older version. The software was greta, but some aspects of the software were hard to learn.
Summary: If you are tired of multiple controls, this is worth every penny. I have configured the PRONTO for our TV, DVR, stereo, CDs, DVD player, DirecTV. Programming can be complicated but if you follow the directions, you can make your entertainment life easier.
Summary: I purchased this remote when I put my new surround system in the house. The software (ProntoEdit)that is used to program the remote is very easy to use once you understand the whole process of the programming. Basically, you have screens that you put graphics [buttons] on and assign them functions.
Summary: I recently bought a harmony remote. There was no flexibility in programming it. It could not completely replace the other 5 remotes. The result was to have to use 6 remotes. With the Philips remote, all my old remotes are now in storage. This device is amazing.
Summary: You virtually need a course to program this thing. I do not recommend it for anyone. I tried to figure the thing out for about two hours with little progress. It went back the same day. I bought the thing to make life a little easier and instead I paid premium money for a headache.
