Within maybe 15 minutes or so from scratch, I had my system ready! But the Pronto is still so cool, maybe someday I'll pay another $$ to have someone program it???
But yes, the PS3 is ok, but just think if someone ELSE had also bought a Pronto, you think they want to buy another (BT) controller when they have their entire THEATER setup (lights, curtains, etc) to run by the Pronto (or MC3000 etc)???? To all work when pressing just one button? Of course, if they had that much money, they'd also already own the $$$$$ Denon BD player.
And yes, I will stand up and SHOUT that I want bitstream. Why else did I buy my Onkyo 805?
Anyway, FWIW, I am now going to try the LG BH200, as I also have HD DVD movies as well as BD, and a ton of DVD. There were some "coolness" gizmos on the 2550, but not the ones I wanted, sadly. And IF the BH200 works as good as I read it does, then I can replace having both a BD and an HD (A35) player (and not need a separate DVD upscalling player) on the glass shelf of my rack! AND, have the Harmony contol it all
Now hmmmmmmmmmm, anyone need an old Marantz LD player???? hehehe
