Contest Entry #13: The Infrared Interstate

RUNNER UP! This is a completely custom PCF, with an emphasis on navigation and simplicity. The top area of the design remains consistent from one screen to the next, making operation of the remote fairly intuitive. An "All Devices" button on every screen gives the user access to a given device within two button presses. I've avoided duplicate buttons (like having 4-way toggles on screen) that might confuse novice users. All graphics (with the exception of the Favorites show icons) are 100% original.

This is my attempt to design a unique configuration for the ProntoPro NG. I like to design devices that look similar to the original remote, so others could operate the remote with ease.

The TOOL, DEVIVE and PAGE# labels have changed cosmetically. HARD-BUTTON 1 through 4 are reserved for instant access to frequently used devices. HOME and HARD-BUTTON 1-4 also function as page down when pressed again.

For additional info, press the [?] button, where available.

Note: Some buttons (lights and scene) are not programmed since there are many different ways to send X-10 signals. Also, toggle lights (in the SCENE section) does not work on current version of emulator(1.0.10.0), but works when downloaded to the ProntoProNG. Please download the PCF file and take a look. Unleash your creativity and copy, modify, add and edit to your liking!

Contest Entry #11: OS 2k4.0 Pro

This design is straight forward and flexible and takes advantage of the advanced graphics capability of the TSU7000. The interface was designed to be user friendly for all who may use it. In most cases, each component has one screen containing the most used buttons that keeps ‘screen flipping’ to a minimum. Furthermore, the user can switch from any component to another from any screen in the interface. For example, if you are watching TV and want to switch to the DVD, all you need to do is tap the DVD icon on the top of the page and the TSU7000 will turn off the TV and switch on all components needed to watch a DVD.

What makes this design unique is the presence of the ‘splash’ screens. Splash screens are the ‘animated’ screens that appear while the TSU7000 is performing a lengthy macro. For example, when the TSU7000 is sending the commands to turn on a component, there are many steps it needs to perform. In the 5-7 seconds this takes to complete, this interface will flash through screens updating the user on the status of the task.

NOTE: All hard keys will be used to control VOL+/-, CH+/-,MUTE and DIRECTION PAD for each component interface.

Contest Entry #10: Trek7000
Added by Keith Michaels | 2004 | 2,476 views

This PCF design is based on LCARS (Library Computer Access and Retrieval System), the graphical computer interface seen on certain Star Trek TV series. There are control pages for a TV, DSS receiver, TiVo, ReplayTV, Receiver, DVD player, LaserDisc player, 2 VCRs, CD player, tuner, tape deck, video games, lights, and curtains.

A few of the standard system items have been replaced to take advantage of the whole LCD and create a complete design:
  • The activity icon is now a Star Trek phaser and pops up while the Pronto transmits.
  • The battery gauge is a functioning LCARS-style battery gauge.
  • Pressing and holding the circular blue logo for 3 seconds takes you to the Pronto's setup pages.
Additional Info:

To go to the Home page at any time, press the lower-right "Home" hard button.

I tried to leave all device functionality as generic as possible, hopefully allowing most people to use this PCF in their own system without much customization beyond programming their device's IR codes. To simplify programming, a "Codes" page under each device contains buttons with the IR codes for that device. The actual device buttons link to these buttons for their IR codes.

Contest Entry #09: Pick a Theme

Ever get tired of the same old graphics on your Pronto? My design is theme based: each user can have their own theme! Or, a user can change themes every week or month. The button colors and backgrounds change, but the button placement is the same for all themes. My design has elegant buttons, a simple navigation system, and can be easily customized for any user.

This layout is an evolution of my TSU3000 layout. It is activity-based and makes heavy use of macros to control my two zones of equipment and home automation. The layout of hard and soft buttons for each device follows a pattern, making it fairly simple to learn to use. There is a help screen for each device. The skin is based on a pattern that matches the paint of our living room.

Contest Entry #07: The Works

The result of my design: 134 custom-made buttons (not counting spacers & labels)! My favorite button is the volume toggle in the lower right page. Here's what's unique about my configuration:

  • Consistent frame-based GUI with three button groups in frame:
    TOP: device selection with trinary button states - pressing a pressed button in the main page of a device executes a setup macro with auto-power-on, etc.
    LEFT: device specific buttons, e.g. TiVo: Favorites, Thumbs Up/Down, Slo-Mo
    BOTTOM: “orthogonal” (e.g. X-10 & Amplifier are always needed independent media devices), or common functions (Keypad)
  • Modifier buttons, when pressed once, lead to an extra screen – when pressed again they lead back to same device
  • Eye pleasing “soft” design with fairly correct lighting (shadows, etc.) and well balanced colors
  • Simplicity – one page operation with most common functions
  • No confusing clutter (I put in time, date & battery for completeness only... I actually prefer it without those items, but it's easier to erase them than to integrate them later)
  • The activity signal is still visible, though barely taking up any space now
  • Background is defined on the System page only,... (more)

This look is the result of my wife asking me to do a layout that matched her favorite purse!

    This remote features for the user:

  • Inviting splash screen introduces the location of the remote, the designer, and features inviting background art.
  • Color-coded functionality, allowing easy discernment between video and audio functions. The user may simply glance at the remote to find where they are.
  • Directions are provided on pages that may need instructions to continue use.
  • Subdued background art demonstrates the selected function without overpowering displayed buttons.
  • Latching source buttons that glow to let the user know exactly where they are.
  • Pages are titled to further assist the user in navigating through the remote.
  • Sides of the touchscreen and hard buttons are reserved for consistent mode buttons. The center of the remote is the active use area.
  • Maximum icons are used to minimize required reading. Text is provided only when icons will not suffice to explain the button’s function.
  • Well-placed and sized buttons allow a wider variety of finger sizes to use it.
  • Button placements are consistent, regardless of the function, source, or mode selected, allowing less required reading for the user during normal use.
  • Always-available... (more)

    Contest Entry #04: Clean & Simple

    I have developed a very clean, simple and neat Activity-based configuration, which is also fully functional. It features simple custom graphics and custom-labeled buttons. In addition, it includes my first attempt to develop a transport graphic which was derived from a digital photograph, from one of my OEM remotes. My configuration features 100% .png graphics which all utilize a transparent background, for that custom look. My .pcf features 10 devices on 42 pages. The Yamaha device contains some 30 + discrete codes.
