I've been reviewing the various pronto remotes and other than the dprice ifferance between them. I don't see much differance between the TSU7000 and 7500. There has been some meantion about the 7500's buttons begin easier to find. Other than that could someone xplain the differences to me please.


As for the large TSI model Im not sure what it would add in regards to function. There seems to be a 6" display and browser. Is this an aging product that is now limited when compared to the Pro series and the newer 9800 model?


I really like the ability to create buttons and layouts on a computer. Thats what attracts me to the unit(s).

A lot of people complain about the Tsi6400 for options that were never made available. However, I really like this remote, and not for the web features. I love having a 10.4" color screen with plenty of space for the buttons. From a pure remote standpoint, I think it is outstanding and definitely on a higher plane than the other pronto series.

I believe with the 7500 you get a little more distance also if using RF as opposed to IR. I haven't used the Ipronto yet. It looks very nice, but I've heard many instances of it being buggy. Another very solid remote is the RTI series. typically a little more then the pronto if you couple them with their controller (RP6) but very robust.

There are only two differences between the TSU7500 and the TSU7000, memory and hard button cosmetics. The TSU7500 has 48 megs of memory. The TSU7000 has 32 megs. Also, the buttons on the TSU7500 are supposed to be easier to work by feel as the markings are more pronounced than they are on the TSU7000. I have never had a problem working the hard buttons on the TSU7000 by feel alone however. There is a new RF extender which works with any of the remotes in the ProntoNG line. (TSU3000/3500/7000/7500) This is where improved RF comes in. The RF capabilities of the TSU7500 and TSU7000 are identical, as they are with the TSU3500 and TSU3000. That being said, I have 2 of the original RF extenders and have never had a problem with RF control. I am often 60 plus feet away from the extenders as well. No problems.

Don_Kellogg -


I'm a owner of TSU7000. One of the remotes strongest attribute is it's ability to allow for customization. You can create screens, buttons, and text through software to your personal liking. I just love it's flexibility.


If you do decide to go with the Pronto Pro, it couldn't have come at a better time. Word has it that Philips has discontinued production on the 7000 and you will be able to pick one up at a significant $aving$

Wow they are already killing the TSU7000... I do not foresee the need for 48 meg I don't have that much to control. The thing I like about the product line is the ability to make custom screens. I'll probably go with a 7000 I've seen them on EBAY for $400 or so.

According to Phillips, the 7500 and 7000 have the same size memory of 32 MB.

The TSU7500 model is outlined at the Philips website under the "New ProntoPro" section. There is states that the TSU7500 has 48 megs of memory. Owning both a TSU7000 and TSU7500 I can assure you that the TSU7500 does have 48 megs of memory. The "ProntoProNG" section of the Philips website makes reference to the TSU7000 only which has only 32 megs of memory.


That being said, the Philips website is poorly designed with regards to the both models which can easily cause confusion. First off, the actual model numbers are not even referenced under each section. Secondly, the TSU7500 is part of the ProntoProNG line, yet it's not included under the "ProntoProNG" section like it should be. Why Philips created a new section for the TSU7500 entitled, "New ProntoPro" I'll never understand. All they have done is cause confusion amongst their potential customers. Details on the TSU7500 should have been placed under the "ProntoProNG" section along with the TSU7000 with links provided there for both the TSU7000 and TSU7500.

Can you program it using a Macintosh Computer?


If my devices all receive IR signals, how does it help that this device can emit an RF signal?

unless VPC works better now the answer is no

RF is not for devices. RF is built so that an RF signal can be sent to an RF base that then sends IR. The benefits of RF is that it is more reliable (someone won't walk between it) and it passes through objects (so equipment can be out of sight).

The only difference between the TSU7000 and 7500 was a memory upgrade from 36mb to 48mb. There also were some minor styling changes to one or two buttons. If you want to see the best remote on the market. They just came out with the TSU9600.
