First, I hope everyone had a great weekend! Today, as promised, youíll find a complete review for the brand new Sony RM-VL900 remote control
. The VL900 is an 8-device remote with full learning capabilities on every key, macros and a lot more. It features an all-button design and many functions similar to the RM-AV2100, but at a significantly lower price point. Our review is full of photographs and also includes complete programming instructions and a brand code table if you happen to lose the included documentation. Donít miss it!
Speaking of the RM-AV2100, Remote Centralís early review of the RM-AV2100 from February has now been updated with new information and photographs. Like the VL900, youíll also find a complete programming guide and code table added. If you havenít seen the AV2100 or may have missed our review youíll want to check this out. The AV2100 is available now in many stores (apparently for as little as $129 or less) and will be available at other establishments shortly. In addition, the VL900 should also now be making an appearance at a store near you.

An updated version of a Pronto utility aptly titled ProntoUtil has been sent over from the author, Geoffrey Reynolds. ProntoUtil is used to generate completely clean infrared codes once given the format of a deviceís code. Finally, if youíre looking for an answer to a nagging pronto problem or question, the first place you should check is our Unofficial Pronto FAQ. Furthering the complete redesign from a week or so ago, the FAQ has again been updated with a few new questions and, er, other fixes kindly pointed out by a Remote Central regular (thanks Tom Held!).
