Activity-based remote control configuration. Main Page #1 contains the activities. Each activity's pages contain a mix of DVD/DVR/Projector/Receiver commands that make sense for that activity. Main Page #2 contains the actual devices, and his hidden, although devices are accessible by pressing one of the unused LCD buttons on Main Page #1. Layout is extremely spouse/kids friendly. Amp is not a real device. Receiver powers on the external amp via a 12V trigger that is enabled using the Receiver's Zone 2 function. Receiver pages were completely filled, so I created an "Amp" device to mimic the Zone 2 On/Off function. A Utils LCD button on Main Page #2 contains pages for short cuts to actual devices, as well as Power Off confirmation messages. Because I have a front projector in my system, I use these confirmation messages to avoid inadvertent power offs. Discrete Power On/Off for all devices.
This template was not designed by me graphacially, but altered - although the functionality of this template makes for some very easy operation. A lot of the templates I come across do not take advantage of variables, and I just wanted to show a couple of these uses in this template. Such as system and power tracking, help pages and reset macros. Feel free to email any suggestions or complements - or even complaints!
