I wouldnít be so hard on them just yet; I debated for a long time on whether to purchase an iPronto and I did purchase one 2 weeks ago. After decent success with the 2000 I wanted something more and purchased a 6000 and what a disappointment that was. Philips at one time had earned my respect as a company that could deliver cutting edge products but after my last several purchases of there cutting edge products (TSU-6000, DirecTV Tivo, and DVD recorder sorry I canít remember the model # its been it when in the trash long ago) Iíve ended up with a bunch of stuff that never worked as advertised and or was completely unreliable.

I should have purchased a Crestron in the first place and been done with it but Iím an engineer and I like to play with things.

I glad to see that they have a presence on this board and are diligently working on issues and enhancements. Everyone wants enhancements and expanded capabilities and Iím sure theyíll come in time but remember that existing issues need to be corrected first. Iím not defending Philips just my fellow engineers.

But if they drop the ball on this one Iíll purchase a Crestron, line up my 3 Prontoís and shoot them with a 12 gauge slug one at a time and never purchase another Philips product again.
