CORE? Why haven't u say so! IT IS PC PROGRAMMABLE.
I my friend, still have 4 of those in WORKING condition. Let the bid begin!
I had bought one in the early 90s, used it until the plastic buttons broke. I loved it so much that I kept looking for a replacement on eBay. Lo and behold one day some guy offered to sell 4, and I immediately grabbed them. Didn't pay that much either.
The CORE is the programmer's (geek) dream. I have all the software, and the special PC interface cable, original manuals. Very few remotes even today give you TIMERS, every button programmable, you can reprogram a button on the fly like a computer which allows between other things program TOGGLES, press once for on, push again for off. The TIMER is powerful, allowing fixed timing function: i.e. Turn on Light 6:00 p.m. OR relative TIMER: At trigger, wait 20 seconds, then turn on light, which between other things allows function like: Turn on radio 6:00 a.m. at low volume, then every 30 seconds turn up the volume a bit more, then 30 seconds later turn it up some more. POWERFUL.
It's not my main remote because (1) I don't want to wear it out, (2) My Pronto's graphic icon screen spoils me.
But CORE is a programmer's remote for sure, 'cause programmers don't need labels!
