Although there are no Pronto developments yet to be seen at CES, Philips will be showcasing an array of new consumer-level remote controls starting tomorrow on the show floor. There are four new models that will be on display, all sporting color LCD screens and on-screen setup wizards.

Philips SRU6110
The first such remote is the SRU6110 – and if your current remote keeps dropping between the couch cushions then this could be the perfect solution for you. With a “bold, wedge-shaped configuration” the SRU6110 otherwise looks like a large stone tablet, with a 2” LCD screen set into the middle and a vast array of hard buttons positioned on the left, right and bottom edges. The 10-device SRU6110 boasts that it requires no PC for configuration – or even a setup manual for that matter – thanks to an intuitive on-screen setup wizard.

The SRU6110 also features 280 built-in television channel icons for favorite channels, different settings for five separate users, a built-in code database, infrared code learning and support for macros. The SRU6110 will be available Q2 2008 at a suggested list price of $129.99 USD.

Philips Prestigo SRU8015, SRU8112 & SRU8008
This new series of Prestigo universal remote controls from Philips all feature traditional “stick” hard buttoned designs with color LCD screens – a 2.0” display on the SRU8015 and SRU8112, and a smaller 1.4” display on the SRU8008.

The SRU8015 and SRU8112 both have the ability to show network icons for a user’s favorite channels, with hundreds included to choose from. The SRU8015 and SRU8008 both sport a rotary cursor control wheel for fast menu navigation, and are finished in an elegant gloss black design. The premium SRU8015 comes with premium hard plastic buttons, with the other remotes using more traditional rubber keys. The SRU8112 features a dual-tone black and grey color scheme, and instead of the cursor wheel uses adjacent hard buttons for navigating the LCD display.

All three units sport an on-screen setup wizard to easily create devices and activities, while extra functionality can be quickly added with custom labels. These Prestigo remotes also include a built-in preprogrammed code database, full infrared code learning and support for macros.

The SRU8015 is priced at $149.99 USD and is available now, while the SRU8112 and SRU8008 will both retail at $99.99 and will be available Q2 2008.

i have had my philips sru8015 since before christmas.i got the remote for the lcd screen and what i thought were going to be hard plastic buttons.they are rubber buttons,by the way.this is a flawed product in my eyes.i will tell you why.this remote has the favorites feature which i have on my x-10 icon remote.this works great on the x-10 but it really sucks on the sru8015.it enters the numbers in the speed you would go if you were using your big toe to enter the numbers yourself.on the x-10 you can adjust the key transmit time.this one is set factory at big toe speed.here is the most annoying thing about this remote that is so pretty, yet flawed.when you go to just enter a basic function,the remote has to "wake up", then send the signal.even the cheapest remote can operate simple tasks such as this.i am angry.i waited so long for a dud of a remote.don't get me wrong,if you turn the remote on such as the light key or barely turn the cursor,it works like a champ.but who wants to do that just to adjust volume or ,use the cursor,transport keys,basic stuff?lame.last philips remote i will ever buy.does anyone else have one of these?help me out!
