I'm looking for a great user friendly remote for about $200 as a nice little upgrade to my system. My main two considerations are the Phillips ProntoNeo or the new Sony RM-AV3000. IMO the Sony looks nicer because it has a nicer screen, but then again, I haven't seen a really nice photo of the Neo. Does the Sony's keys, not the virtual ones, light up or glow in the dark? Also, what is the advantage of having an RS232 port in a remote(as you can tell, I'm, very new to upgrading remotes)? What can possibly be upgraded in a remote? Oh, I will be replacing my Onkyo 797 remote, the Onkyo CHAD is way to expensive. So which of the two would you suggest?
