New contest: First, February's contest has just ended and four prize winners have been chosen. But what was the answer to our skill-testing question? The results may surprise you! Click here for February's results.

Win a Pioneer DVD Changer or Dish Network 500 System! For March, and Remote Central have brought together a great new contest. This month you could win a Pioneer 3-disc DVD changer worth $545 or a Dish Network 500 satellite system worth $299. Sound good? Click here for all the details.

New Pronto system CCF files are available from Brian French, Christian Rouzies, Patrick Mourava, Pat Megenity, Paul Frank Mauceli and Pietro Gabriele.

Steve Devine has uploaded a CCF for a JVC GR-DV1 camera, TAFT a CCF for a Marantz SR-7000 receiver, George Fouraris a pseudo random action button along with Tile Placement and Jug games, plus there's a special flexible tabbing CCF file by Larry Boyers. Keem them coming!

Color Pronto: A quick status update from Philips shows that the color Pronto is currently being planned for initial release at CEDIA, with limited availability by the end of the year. It's true product launch will be at CES 2001 in Las Vegas. Latest news indicates that RF probably will not be an included feature, however details are still scarce.

As for the current Pronto model, Philips is aware that availability is scarce and is hoping that this month (March) will be better. In addition, I hear that a firmware update may not be available for some months -- so if you've got special requests, now's the time to make them known to the Philips folks in the Pronto chat forum. Everything is taken into consideration.
