Depends on what you want. Color? Black And White? Screen Resolution? Scroll wheel?

All Philips remotes are discontinued so take your pick. I personally use the TSU9600 remotes and extenders. I had a 1st Gen Marantz RC5000i, then a Marantz RC9200, Then a Pronto TSU7000, then a TSU9600, TSU9400, and TSU9800.

For what you need, if you have a computer with an RS232 port, I'd recommend something as simple as a Philips TSU2000 (ProntoEdit) or the Marantz RC5000i (Touch Screen Setup). The only challenge you may have is finding batteries.

Note that almost any platform will take the Pronto Hex data as inputs.

If you were to post a Somfy code here that you got, I'm sure one of us will decipher and tell you which Philips remotes can support it natively.

URC also supports Pronto Hex but I don't think they publish their editor to the average consumer.
