My PCF is a device based design split into parts for two rooms of the house. It is set up to keep all devices in sync regardless of whether discrete codes are available.
Each device maintains a theme of stylized rounded buttons using a conistent layout to make it easy to find controls which are common between devices. Each page has a 'Master Off' button which will turn off all equipment related to the device and take you back to the main home page.
I have demonstrated the use of the ProntoPro's translucent capability by using see-through menus for selecting audio, device, D-pad, and lighting settings.
For the cable box device, the menus slide out from the bottom or sides showing simple animation techniques. It works great on the remote, but the simulator causes the screen to flash when changing pages, making the animation less smooth. Delays were added to slow it down in the simulator. These delays are not necessary on the actual remote. I hope you enjoy the graphics and layout design. It was a lot of fun to work on.
I have spent many an evening fiddling with my PCF. Although not one of the most graphical availabe, I have spent a lot of time utilising other peoples PCFs to make my own (THANK YOU ALL!). The longest thing to program was the Bose system. All the PCFs I could find wouldn't work properly so I spent hours searching, downloading and clipping various IR codes to get them to work. The end result? In my opinion the best Bose PCF there is on here, with none of the reported problems with twitchy volume up and down etc, mine is as smooth as a whistle! I have tried to make it as easy as possible for people to use my PCF and "modify" it for their own needs. I have wanted a ProntoPro NG for ages and if it wasn't for this site and its members I would never have taken the pluge and finally got rid of the inferior Harmony 885!
This setup has some similarities to Daniel's and uses his old icons from the 6000. I owe him all the thanks for his icons. This contains a movie listings database complete with descriptions and DVD changer interface. Hope you enjoy.
