You couldn't be more accurate on this Chris.

Headache to configure but incredible to use. IR codes and macros hit right on unlike the RF Extender for the TSU6000 and 7000s. Codes are sent IEEE 802.11b rather than RF and are more reliable. My customer is also using the browser to access and control his MP3 server.

Great product given the situation.

I finally took the plunge and sold my Pronto Pro
TSU-6000 and bought an iPronto. Initial configuration
with the access point and the TSI 6400 was disasterous!
The unit was an open box sale, so had been configured
previously. Before booting the iPronto the first
time I configured the WAP to accept the MAC. The
intial power on of the iPronto seemed to go well,
but when I tried to get the upgrade, I couldn't.
Reason: the iPronto card somehow trashed the access
point settings - everything was reset to default!
... 15 minutes to troubleshoot and fix, got online.

Seems iProntoEdit doesn't auto-recognize the iPronto
if I have DHCP enabled on the iPronto. Changed
to static ip and all then went well. Had some
trouble with converted bmps showing on the iPronto
as black squares. Converted to PNG, all is well.

Working on configuring panels and buttons ...
HOURS (I know, I'm not alone there!)
Great unit, flexible, but particular?!?

Thanks to all for the great files here on Remote
Central that have saved me considerable time getting
up to spped with this new device.

Anyone hear of the future plans for the iPronto?
Thanks, Chris
