I have not had time to look at the module but if it has the ability to control multiple changers it would be the cats meeeeeeow
And the programmer I use has already quoted me a price of $600, just to add this module, simply to take the place of the Panasonic single-disc player that I have.
While I will probably opt for it, I am simultaneously working on my programming for a Pronto Professional TSU9800. It's not infrequent that I swap things out in my system, and I miss the days of being able to do it myself--that's why I'm learning the new Pronto, as I used to always do it myself with Pronto units.
I think my programmer smells that I'm not far from being able to take or leave him, and the price for this add-on is way higher than the last--when I swapped out a Sony BD player for a Panasonic, the charge was $175. Now we're talking about the same type of work, but the price is just the kind of incentive I need to complete my Pronto programmiing, and say goodbye to the Crestron.
I'll keep everyone posted on my progress. The arrival of the BD changer is incentive enough to keep plowing away. But I'll hedge my bets by biting the bullet on the Crestron add-on.
