A multi-room system with a central A/V cabinet. Screen Graphics are custom designed to use a 3x3 grid, so they're easy for "fat finger" button selection and only provided the needed options at any given time. Other features include a party mode, power on/off on the home page, labeled IR codes, long macros with informative beeps, plus all channel logos created to fit on the 3x3 grid. All equipment picked for suitable I.R. functionality. Graphics only use white, dark grey and black (no light grey) to enable less sensitive use of screen contrast.
System includes one set of source equipment that can be displayed on two monitors. All buttons and backgrounds were created with Z-paint, and icons were sized and pasted with HiJak Pro and Paint. Cable TV includes favorite channel icons w/macros, and Cable Music includes a macro for each genre.
The unique feature of this remote is easy usage by my kids (4 and 2) and my wife and advanced usage by me. I purposefully only allow the built-in arrow navigation between their panel and mine because they have a very hard time hitting it. All graphics are original by me. The kids' panels are more activity based and the advanced panels are more device based. I hid the Macro panels (with the learned codes) by naming them with a single space this makes navigating to them much more difficult, because it just shows a blank menu.
