Gary Hamilton's Second TSU7500 PCF
Added by Gary Hamilton | 2006 | 16,162 views

This straightforward PCF came about as a result of the need for a design which handles the addition of long strings of text and ongoing button realignment without difficulty. In the past I have concentrated on a customized label for each button because the text looks so much better, but the shear volume of text used in this PCF made the model insupportable. So I ended up settling on a simple button and frame design so that on going additions are made easier. I even developed a simple repositioning graphic (behind the frame) to aid in this constant and frequent process. I then focused on buttons and various frame openings being perfectly aligned so page jumping is visually less tiring and annoying. The priority has become the burgeoning growth of my DVD collection. As if continually adding movie thumbnails to the file and various genres wasn’t enough, I came up with the idea of adding two new search engines! For those who don’t readily recognize the picture on a DVD cover, I added Search by Title and Search by Actor. All of the artwork for this PCF’s design evolved from the needs of the DVD Lobby area and then migrated to the rest of the file for a consistent and professional look... (more)

Gary Hamilton's TSU7500 PCF
Added by Gary Hamilton | 2006 | 2,627 views

This time I was inspired by fellow Remote Central Pronto NG community member Lowpro and (in particular) by the way his movie library page functions. I eventually decided to convert my whole PCF to operate in this same manner because it allows me to have all 17 activities and control of my theatre readily at hand without making buttons or text too small. At over 700 PAGES and 300 DEVICES, this design is still simple to use and comes in under 7 megs and 69% free memory! The cosmetics reflect a snazzy PDA / Cell Phone. All of the artwork in the PCF is mine except for a couple of buttons borrowed from Daniel Tonks. PCF includes: complete control of 17 theatre activities; really cool (I think) customized loading pages for each activity; a DVD Library of 500 films (and growing); extensive interactive help screens; cable logo access buttons for Dallas area; an easy to use device teaching menu; X10 lighting control with active graphic of my theatre room and a slideshow area of theatre pictures and family photos. Special thanks and recognition to Lowpro, Lyndel McGee, and the great software upgrades from the Pronto Team. Needless to say, I would never have attempted this without the new shortcuts plus drag and drop provided in the new Pronto Edit software. As Lowpro says, "Enjoy"!

Gerald Maxwell's Layout

A neat GUI that I snagged from GUIStuff.com, so I can't take credit for any of the graphic work other than remote buttons. The rest is a complete file, including macros already set up - simply drop in your IR commands and you "should" be ready to go! Drop a line on the email to let me know what you think... Thanks!

My new "modular" design. Many special features like zone 2, zone 3 home preset, direct EQ for the Yamaha receiver, VCR shuttle functions etc. Have fun! Remember: many devices are set to RF!

Contest Entry #09: Pick a Theme
Added by Jared Meiners | 2004 | 2,771 views
ScreenshotScreenshot
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.

Contest Entry #26: Tranquil Blue
Added by Jeff Cooper | 2004 | 2,132 views

This is my first Pronto configuration. My goal was to replace my MX-1000 with the TSU7000, and add a few things that I could not do on the MX-1000. I set out to create a 100% original art work configuration. I created the buttons using Crystal Buttons, followed up with enhancements using PhotoImpact. I also tinted the system bitmaps blue by replacing the bitmaps in the PCF file, and created pressed bitmaps of all buttons to look like they are lighting up when they are pressed.

I created a device bar for my major devices. This can be clicked to jump directly to a device although you have to use your fingernail since it so small. I also created an information screen for the device hard buttons.

Contest Entry #07: The Works
Added by Jens Roever | 2004 | 2,588 views

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)

    Joe Gildein's Futurama

    My second PCF for the TSU3000 is a unique file that features a futuristic interface, page "morphs" instead of "jumps", and even a friendly robot. It might make you feel like you are controlling something other than a home theater.

    John Brandt's Custom PCF
    Added by John Brandt | 2004 | 9,872 views

    A pretty clean setup with mostly original buttons (except for the favorite icons and the help pages which were "borrowed"). The unique part is the NFL setup: I've filled in the entire DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket 2004/2005 regular season schedule by week, with icons for each team. The icons are linked to channel buttons to allow simultaneous control of two TVs for "Picture and Picture" action every Sunday.
