Home >> Remotes >> Philips SBC RU950 Pronto Intelligent Remote Control with LCD Touchscreen Display


The RU950 has an improved 320x240 pixel 3.8" display with 16 gray scales that allows you to create much more realistic buttons and pictures. The bright true blue backlight that lights up both the LCD and all hard buttons ensures perfect operability in the dark. The built-in light sensor switchs the backlight on automatically, while after the adjustable time-out the light will smoothly fade off.

The Digital Contrast Control is always directly available to adjust the LCD-contrast.

A total of 19 hard buttons are available to perform basic functions: The channel up/down, mute, volume up/down buttons are conveniently located at the right side of the LCD. Of the four buttons below the LCD three can be freely assigned and labeled. The 4-direction cursor key can both be used for controlling devices by infrared or navigating through the devices and pages on the LCD.

The four buttons around the cursor are freely programmable. On the left side there are the page up/down and the backlight key.

The RU950 has the latest available infrared codes in its universal database featuring more than 500 brands and the latest products like TiVo and X10. But in case your exotic amplifier or hard disk recorder is not listed, you can still learn the codes by copying your existing remote control*.

In case your equipment is hidden behind a closet or is located in another room, you just switch the Pronto to RF (optional RF Extender required).

One of the strongest features of Pronto is its configurability via the included USB-cable to the PC. The software package ProntoEdit Release 5 will bring you besides the features in Release 4 new functionality to help you create your configuration file, now called PCF (Pronto Configuration File):
  • Multi document
  • Multi level (Standard and Advanced)
  • Transparency
  • Multiple jumps in macro
  • Full screen configurability
  • Assignment of system functions to buttons
  • Import function for CCF-files

LI910 Optional RF Base
The LI910 is a Signal Extender that works only with the RU950, RU970, and RU980. The communication between the LI910 and the RU980 is done via 'coded' radio frequency, eliminating interference. Through the LI910 the RU980 can operate equipment all around your home, not hindered by walls.

    IMPORTANT NOTE only for UK Digital Cable viewers: Some cable boxes use non industry standard infra-red signals called IrDa. Learning remotes cannot send these signals. Please refer to the following compatibility chart.

    Cable Box Model Learning Remote Compatible
    DI1000 No (see Red-Eye below)
    DI1200 No (see Red-Eye below)
    DI4000N Yes - but with limited range. Better to use RedEye
    DI4001NC Yes
    DI4010 Yes - but with limited range. Better to use RedEye

    Sky-Digital, Freeview, and analogue viewers are NOT affected by this problem, and this remote will learn these products (and just about any other product) 100% okay.

    11220 Red-Eye infra-red translator
    To use the learning remote with digital cable, then you simply additionally need the Red-Eye infra-red translator. This brilliant little device sticks to the front of your Pace 1000, or 2000 series set top box, and plugs into the rear socket of the cable box for power. It translates RC6 infra-red codes, into IRDA codes, thereby allowing your learning remote to control the cable box.
