      Comments about Leightronix PRPADVD Infrared Pro Bus Interface:

      The Leightronix Automation controllers are very reliable and dependable. This Panasonic DVD infrared control interface is limited to Play/Record/Stop, but does have the capability to use dip switches to have the controller send Stop - Stop or Stop - Stop - Stop when the REWIND feature is selected on the controller. This is useful for fully stopping the Playback motor of the DVD Player, which otherwise would stay in Play - Pause (typical for a DVD Player, when the stop button is only pressed once).

      Interfaces easily with the Pro Bus system for VCR/DVD deck control. We've used many of these (including the VCR and Sony DVD interfaces) with both Pro Bus 8 and Pro Bus 16 controllers, and all have performed flawlessly.

      My only frustration with the Leightronix controller (NOT with this interface) is that the Leightronix clock on the Pro Bus 8 and 16 do not automatically update for Daylight Savings Time. Hopefully the newer automation controllers do. Also, an uninterruptible power supply may be helpful in case of a power outage, as the controller does not retain its internal memory (clock and presets) in case of a power loss. Software for Windows98 is available (still there in 2009 free from their website) to store and manage the event data on a PC. We have an 8-year-old computer we keep just for that, so when we make a programming change we can save it on the PC. The PC only needs to run when making changes, and is not necessary since the 2-line LCD display can be used for programming. But in a power glitch, you don't want to have to manually re-enter all the event data.

      Overall, the Leightronix products are very useful for their purpose, and none of their products have failed for us in many years of use. Excellent build quality, in these times when you never know what to expect when your order new electronics equipment!
