I got the same email, we are in Canuckland so I am sure our distribution will be small for awhile, but we are very interested in it.

I really never cared for the pronto. They offer great customization but are about as reliable as a weather forcast!

My palm pilot took a 10 story free fall from my tool belt and didn't survive the impact!

So, what makes the Nevo so great?
Every day is a good day.......some are just better than others!

Proud to say that my property is protected by a high speed wireless device!

never dropped a pronto from 10 stories up, but they survived well in an industrial setting. They also survived coffee and other stuff that are more common in homes

I just purchased a demo unit from out distributor, and so far so great with the Nevo SL. It's just what we've been personally waiting for. I'm just setting the link up with a second room and we'll see how that goes.

We've had one for a little while now and I think they're great. Although I've hit some small snags with programming.
I took it home and was able to get all my music track listings on the remote and command my HTPC to start playing seemlessly.

Universal Electronics Releases NevoSL: The Ultimate Control Solution For the Networked Home
July 25, 2005
NevoSL Offers Consumers New Class of Intelligent Home Control Device

Cypress, CA, July 25, 2005 – Universal Electronics Inc. (NASDAQ: UEIC) today announced the commercial availability of NevoSL™, a universal controller that intuitively delivers complete audio/visual and digital media control for the networked home. With NevoSL, consumers have a single control point to control virtually all their home theater and stereo equipment while bridging the gap between digital content stored on the PC. Consumers can play and interact with virtually any song, digital picture or movie, in any room on nearly any device from the palm of their hand.

“With over 25 million homes in the US that have installed a network and over 200 million legally downloaded music tracks and 80 billion digital photos taken last year alone, consumers are demanding a new class of control.” said Robert Lilleness, president and chief operating officer of UEI. “The need for device and digital media management is here, and NevoSL answers that demand. With built-in Wi-Fi, infrared (IR) and customization via NevoStudioTM, NevoSL provides complete control – not only of devices and content, but also how consumers want to interact with and enjoy them – delivering a unified entertainment experience.”

"With rich offerings of interactive media, digital entertainment, and content now combining with consumers’ adoption of home networks, a new class of user interface, capable of unifying the consumer’s experience with all this new technology, is necessary and thus inevitable.” said Tricia Parks, of Parks Associates. “NevoSL, with its hybrid or multiprotocol (IR and Wi Fi) support and UEI’s connectivity software, is cool, useful, and certainly a contender to win the hearts and minds of consumers.”

Patented Technology for Complete, Customized Control
NevoSL will be offered through the custom electronics professional channel, which according to Parks Associates is projected to grow to $8.3 billion in 2005. Featuring UEI’s world-class infrared (IR) code database for device control and upgradeability, NevoSL is guaranteed to be compatible with virtually any manufacturer’s consumer electronics products. With built-in Wi-Fi, NevoSL further extends the multimedia experience in the networked home by providing wireless access and control of digital photos, songs and movies throughout the home network. With unique features and functions covered by 16 issued and pending patents to date, NevoSL and its companion NevoStudio customization software represent nearly two decades worth of UEI technology directed to control solutions for the networked home.

“More homeowners are turning to custom installers to simplify complex technology in their homes,” said Brandon Johnson, president, JBJ Systems in Long Beach, CA. “We’ve completed hundreds of installations using a variety of home control products. NevoSL takes this to the next level, delivering a new class of intelligent digital handheld device. NevoSL’s design is second to none. It is ergonomically friendly, completely customizable, reliable, and has unmatched performance compared to any other product I’ve used over the past 5 years.”

Award-Winning Innovation
Since its initial market preview in January 2005 (Universal Electronics Unveils the Ultimate Control Solution for the Broadband Home, January 4, 2005), NevoSL has been honored with a number of industry awards.

Best of Innovations Design and Engineering Award- at the 2005 International CES, NevoSL was one of the most highly honored products in all facets of the consumer technology industry.
Technology Is a Girl’s Best Friend (TechGirl) Award- NevoSL was also recognized with this distinction in the Home Networking Category by journalists from top women’s and technology media outlets.
Product of the Year- NevoSL was recently named “Product of the Year” by Electronic House Magazine. Winners are selected based on reviews, product demos, custom electronics professional feedback, and technological innovation combined with overall value and outstanding features.

Global Product Availability
NevoSL and the NevoLink accessory are now available through the worldwide custom electronics professional channel. The products are available in over 17 countries worldwide including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Switzerland, France, Spain, Portugal, Norway and Italy. In the United States, AVAD will distribute NevoSL. For more information about NevoSL, visit www.mynevo.com.

After playing with it a little, I decided to go and open up the Nevo remote that I had left in the car. Very nice. Very, Very nice. Tied it right in with the Music server, good feedback, takes a few seconds to start up, but nothing to bad at all. This thing is lovely. Doesn't have the robustness of the RTI, but it definitely fills a niche thats about to explode. So far, I'm really impressed.

MUGEN, call one of your local CI guys, your in Milwaukee I take it, I know a few of the guys on here could help you out.

For those of you in Ontario, I was told they were looking at either Lenbrook or Positive Marketing, I haven't heard the decision yet.

I think it has a lot of promise. The RTI t3 is a bit bigger and clunkier, in my opinion and I think the hand -feeling is going to be very important to customers. The RTI t3 has a lot more "high-end" (almost commercial) options for big theater installs but the Nevo is priced a lot better for the more average consumer. They are about $400 apart at list.

Again, the t3 has a lot of upside for more complex installs but as of today, the Nevo is the only one which can manage any Wi-Fi stuff. The t3 promises it as a future upgrade and I assume they will come out with it eventually, but wait-and-see.

The software to program the Nevo is not quite what the RTI is. RTI has about the best software of all of the remotes. However, thye Nevo PC application is a close 2nd to the RTI.

I did a config for my own theater and was a bit dissapointed that all of the IR commands for a common piece of equipment (Tivo Hr-10-250) were not complete, within the built-in data base. I assume this wil get better over time.

I am a fan of the Nevo and I have not even tried the Nevo Link yet, to do Wi-Fi from my networked PC. I think it will be a real winner.

My nevo won't give me any more than 3 and one half hours before battery goes low and I have to put it back on that art-deco looking charging base. Is any one else experiencing this, or is mine just bad?
