Questions:IR Switch & Pentax Optio

A couple of questions.

1. Is the PRISM switch the only IR availible that isn't too expensive?

2. Will it work on the Optio 5 pm Series (i.e. the Optio s550)
or
Is the Pentax Optio 4 series the only cameries that can be controlled with IR via a turnkey solution (i.e. I don't have to break out my soldering iron and pic programmer)

3. Is there another IR learning remote besides the RIR-RM1?

4. Does ybnormal or mx have any more PRISM switches?

TIA

Did I ask the wrong questions? Or are they too obvious.

Don't know if PRISM is the ONLY IR switch avaiable, but it is the most popular in this group. I have one and it works flawlessly.

I'm hoping that MX will answerthe rest. I am also interested in the PRISM Stock 'cause I need a spare.

The only other ones I'm aware of are the RIR-RM1 and RIR-RM2.

The PRISM module duplicates the protocol used by the Pentax "Remote-E" or "Remote-F". If their camera works with those, it should work with PRISM.

I am out of stock. I'm currently getting new PCBs manufactured for a new batch. Looks like I won't have more for 3 more weeks. Have you emailed blackwidowav.com to see if they have any?
