    FYI: I just thought that you might want to know about this remote from Home Theater Master (I saw prototypes at CEDIA), since the MX-500 has gone over so well and a lot of people like it, but have asked for more power.
    A lot of people want Pronto-like power but like buttons.
    Here is a preliminary look on RemoteCentral.
    I have the MX-500, MX-1000, Pronto, Marantz RC2000MK2, RadioShack RS-1994, and up until now, my favorite has been the MX-500 for ergonomics. I'm pretty much a button man. But the Pronto has all of the great programming capabilities.
    Here's a remote that seems to be pretty powerful for the Button People of the world.

    John: See above. The HTML for my link wasn't correct and it didn't show up. But it's there now.

    Why would they choose not to make this remote available to the public? You would think they could at least offer sales through their website, if they don't want to deal with the B&M's...

    I believe these remotes will be available to the public through B&M's that have Custom Installation Depts and through Custom Installers.
    I think the idea is along the lines of Paradigm speakers, which are not allowed to be sold on the internet, so that product service and support can be kept at a high level.
    But, that's just my take on it right now.
