lunken,

It's only 20+ dollars....? I'm really having a hard time understanding why people can justify spending hundreds on a remote but $20 is too much for a guide that every one, (excluding dubster, at least, at first) swears up and down is the best thing out there short of the remote itself....?

You are going to find it difficult to locate anyone who would be willing to infringe copyright law, not to mention ripping off Dave. I have no idea who the man is, other than a hand full of posts and his guide, (great work by the way Dave) and could not imagine taking money out of his pocket. The guide will be your greatest asset, and worth not going to McDonalds a couple of times so you can afford it.

Take the risk, if you think it is one. You will not regret it.....ask dubster.

Thanks all for the nice comments.

Luken, it is 135 + pages with graphics, charts, pictures, etc. A bit of paper it isn't.

There are close to 3000 happy clients out there who swear up and down it is the best thing since sliced bread. I think I have about 400 hours in the deisgn and creation of it.

Hey, folks have been using SuperNudelist for years and donations these days are few and far between.

Sorry,

Didn't mean to exclude you Lyndel. I haven't had the pleasure of working with SNL, but I hear it's great though....! To everyone before me that has made life with a Pronto easier....THANKS!!

Oh, and Daniel... Without him I wouldn't have this opportunity to feel like I'm winning an award, and trying to give props to people I have never met.....LMAO!!

Great post Dave - is anything sacred anymore? Pay the 20 bucks. Knowledge is priceless, so your getting a good deal.

I was referring to the fact that folks can shell out lots of bucks for a remote but they are too frugal to pay $20 for a guide or program that will save them immense amounts of time in the future.

Again I apologise... Thought I was seeing some humour in your post, and was going along with it.

Tough crowd...:)

hehee...yes, these long-time forum guys can be a bit "leathery", at times...LOL!

Since we are at it, you users of SNL, which has made your life sooooo easy. Send Lyndel some donations!!!

Not to hijack the thread but - Lyndel, tell us about the current version of SNL??

Lyndel - put the link out there (shameless plug on behalf of Lyndel!)

Here's the link for 2.0.0.8. 2.0.0.9 is on the shelf here in Texas as there's only one or 2 small changes and they don't warrant a full release. If you download the software and look through the release notes, you can see more details of current version.

SNL is not just capable of running CD changers, DVD changers, it's also capable of providing AM/FM music or TV channel guides, etc... The possibilities are endless. And, although the native PCF format is not provided, a migration mode is provided that allows one to generate Marantz RC9200 CCF screens that fit into the 240x253 user area of the 3000/7000 screen. These CCFs can then be imported and merged with your NG configuration.
