What info, if any, do you guys have on this product? They ran a nice inside cover ad in this months Residential Systems. I just sent an email to [email protected] looking for some software to play with as well as to ask some questions. This thing has built in WiFi and it seems to be based on the PocketPC platform. How long until someone cracks this open?! It would be great to get some weather updates on there, view local ip based security cameras, control my itunes, bring up TV listings, view theater showtimes, even run a little VNC viewer on it to control an AMX TP. I don't know much about this, but if this remote is distributed with an open source OS and UI, this could be the greatest remote ever! Anyone know retail on this and when it will start shipping?

Never heard of it before, but looking at the website, I can't quite tell what it does... is it a software package for my tablet/PDA that is like a knock-off Pronto? In which case why bother... Sounds like something for the geek DIY set, and not for me...

it is. UEI the makers of One For All created the Nevo chip (with IR) and SW to be integrated into PocketPC PDAs some time ago, Daniel wrote a review iPaq Nevo. On the other hand some people that saw the Nevo SL at CES have indicated that it "looked" like it was customizable.

Norm, They have taken their software only concept further by creating their own remote that looks closer to a larger, more refined Pronto Neo. You can view the product sheet (PDF) here [Link: mynevo.com]
I really think that if they make the programming super friendly to us installers/programmers (ie, work with existing CCF codes), and back it up with an awesome support department, they could give philips and URC a run for thier money. Not that I support MSFT, but with a platform like Pocket PC and built in WiFi, the possibilities are endless. You could stream video to this thing so you can watch ESPN on the TV but see whats playing on Fox before you change the channel, etc. Im anxious to see this thing come to life and show what it has to offer.

Just to chime in - I saw the same ad in Res Systems and had the same reaction: if this worked like a modern MX-850/MRF-250, yet had a much more customizable screen, AND WiFi support (imagine what it could do with a music server, for instance), it could be what I've been waiting for.

I had a brief conversation with a contact I have at UEI and the distribution of this product was not in his area. He has referred me to another contact. I have not heard anything yet.

I too am interested in this product. As has been said here, Nevo cut their teeth on the Pocket PC platform with Nevo 1. Always had some possibilites. Definately looking forward to this new model.

Looks a lot like the the RTI model and the two do seem to be similar in overall functionality. Just on a different platform, it appears.

I called the company that makes this product and actually talked to someone. From what I was told, customizeable means fully programmable. The entire programming interface is drag-and-drop, even creating macros is drag-and-drop! Another thing that I can't wait to see is this 'add device wizard'. It is supposed to create all of the buttons for you and eveything in just a few seconds. After that, you can customize the screens to anything you want. You can get IR codes from online or there are IR codes built into the software. I guess I won't have to learn all those new remote codes anymore or wait for someone to post them. I'll just have to look online at the nevo website to get them. What a time saver that will be! Also, the software supports all types of image formats, meaning that I can use all of the graphics that I have been using on the pronto remotes. If this works as good as the guy I talked to tells me, we have a Pronto killer on our hands.
