I think what everyone is forgetting is that each new product has a learning curve to get it working well. The promise of the IPronto is pretty great and therefore will have a large learning curve to take advantage of all of it's capabilities. Also as with many control products, there are always those who push the envelope of what it will and won't work with. When the TSU 1000 first came out it took alot of people a long time to figure it all out. Other control systems such as Crestron and AMX take litterally years to learn the process of programming for maximum functionality. In those systems there is really no cut and paste and merging of programs. We are lucky to have easy to program remotes like Prontos. A Crestron system with the capability of the IPronto would cost in excess of seven thousand dollars in hardware and about two thousand in programming. Keep in mind though that the capabilities of the Crestron exceed the Ipronto by a large margin. The IPronto at it's price point is a bargin. Once some of the more creative folks build some nice interfaces we can have some really great looking remotes.
