I had the Pronto...My wife wouldn't touch it, and I didn't like the touchscreen......Could NEVER get FF to jump out at the right time, and no easy way to hit a button without looking at the screen.
The MX-500 is the ONLY remote in our living room now controlling the following:
TWO (2) Sony T60's
400 Disc CD changer
Surround Sound Receiver
And I have ALL the functions programmed into the MX-500....works great.
And as far as pricey....not really....
First, compared to the $400 I spent on my Pronto, it is MUCH cheaper at ~$115.
Second, what did you spend on your home entertainment center? Mine is over $8000 including TV, TiVos, Speakers, Receiver, DVD player, etc. The MX-500 is only 1.5% of what I put into the HEC.....pretty small price to be able to control everything easily with one remote. I spent more than that for all the cables and wiring I put in.
TiVo has forever changed the way I view TV!
