Whom were you addressing? I don't see how it applies to anyone here.

Of course you don't

Well, then let me express the first thought that came to mind when I read that: This is a comment by a person unwilling to use his name in this forum (because oh! we're so mean here!) but not willing to name the person being insulted. You're hardly standing up for anything when you hide behind am anonymous name and just fling an insult into the ethers.

See, I'd like to discuss it with you. What hypocrisy? Let's start with, are you talking about me?

Wow, cause the two are related, how? I happen to use this username on just about any forum. You think that you using your real name and my use of a screen name makes me a hypocrite? I think a visit to 'ole Webster's is in order for you. You, for years, have consistently posted that people NEED to put all of the info down in their posts, every model number, input, color, date of manufacturing, time of day manufactured... ad nauseum.You, for years, post questions leaving out details vital to receiving any form of real guidance.Definition, hypocrite!!!

I think you two (goldenzrule and Ernie Gilman) should agree to just not post on each other's threads.

I did not say anything at all about anybody being a hypocrite for anything. I asked "What hypocrisy?" That means I haven't noticed any. Sorry you took it that way. In fact, I can't figure out how you could have taken it that way.

Then I guess I'm kind of an info snob. I think I know enough to supply the information needed for a solution (and sometimes I leave stuff out, admittedly).

I used to argue for people to ask complete questions because a question like "I need a car; which one should I buy?" do not have anywhere near enough information to allow a decent answer. But I'm under the impression that I ask questions more along the line of "Do you know of any bayonet-type LED auto dome light replacement bulbs?" See, that omits the actual size of the bulb, but |"bayonet" pins it down. It also does not say 12 volts, but most of the 6 volt cars are off the road. So that question actually omits details but is complete enough to be answered.

You, for years, post questions leaving out details vital to receiving any form of real guidance.

Show me a question I've asked that leaves out details vital to receiving ANY FORM OF REAL GUIDANCE. Your exaggeration undermines your case.

Really? You’ve been called out repeatedly for not providing vital details in your inquiries and then getting mad when people point it out. At least man up and don’t deny it.

You argue like a woman. Sorry to tell you but no one is concerned about you enough to keep a running tab of all your posts. You know what was said is true

The Pronto codes thing was a joke.

Why? I use a pronto frequently. I just used one to teach discrete commands to a URC MX-450 for my family room.

This reminds me of a "home automation" company in town that's been operating for years in luxury homes. Asked them what they use for controlling media rooms and answered "we haven't really decided yet, the cable remote is usually good enough."

Anyone who thinks the URC database is messy would be absolutely freaking horrified with RTI.

goldenz, this is how you do it: you NAME the people you're talking to or about:

Don, yeah, it's important to learn just how much of the RTI database to ignore. Mess, yes.

mrtristan, if a "home automation' company is successful with cable remotes, then they're earning money and they have satisfied customers. We'd like them to have better, but how can we impose "better" on anyone?

Mac, I carry a Pronto too. The Pronto TS-1000, the RTI learner, and the Crestron learner are the three products I've found that have learned every IR code I've ever needed. The Pronto is a clear winner for practicality in that the learner also can emit the code, so I can learn it now but, with the same single piece of equipment, supply the code later, whether as IR or as Pronto Hex.

david, don't miss the details. If he says I argue like a woman, and you say cat fight, you're saying it, too. It's no comfort that you're saying he fights like a woman.

Fins, when I asked you for ONE example, I didn't expect you to know of one. I didn't expect you to look one up, maybe because you realized how hard it would be to find. You did not fail to meet those expectations.
