Pronto Marathon

I do love my Pronto remote but it takes ages to update. I had three new devices to add – new tele, new Freeview box and the 360. Thankfully I managed to find discrete off and on codes for the TV (Philips 32pf9830) and the Freeview box (Sony VTX-D800U) which means I’m now in macro heaven. One touch and all the devices will switch on and off as I please – the ultimate in couch potato laziness. The ccf file for the Pronto can be found below – I would upload to Remotecentral but I’ve set things up just so for me so I feel it’s a bit of a waste dumping it on their site.

While I was updating the Pronto it struck me I would hate to replace this remote – it’s had a few knocks and mishaps but it’s just so expensive for what it is. A PDA with an IR port could do a better job and is more cost effective – just need the right software and a good range on the IR port.

  1. I can’t remember if the Pronto is USB, but the Pront NG is and is fairly quick… maybe 30 secs to a minute to update. I got mine in the states and it wasn’t quite as offensive as the UK Pronto price was. Zee even through the NG off a wall (forcefully with rage) and it still works, whereas the Pronto fell on the floor once, and was never the same again hehe.

  2. When I meant update I meant actually putting in the graphics, getting the layout sorted, learning the IR codes. Downloading the updated file takes about 10 seconds. Sorry for the confusion.
