I've hosted a site for Harmony remote favorite channel icons for several years now and it came to my attention by an installer that he resizes them for other brand remotes.
I'm try to decide if it would be useful to host pre-sized favorite files for different remote models and am posing the question here for feedback to see if it's worth the time.
Would love to know if any of you would use them if I made them available at my site.
A few questions I have are:
-What remote model would you like to see them for
-What size file [pixel x pixel at 72ppi] would they need to be for that model
-Would you want them as a pre-made and flattened 'icon/button' graphic or simply as a channel logo with a transparent background saved as a .png at the correct size for your model remote.
-Any other input you can provide you deem as helpful.
Look forward to any feedback.
Best,
RC

I've used your graphics on multiple occasions over the last few years and have recommended your site to others too. Very nice collection and I really like the way you have them set up for download!

I can't speak for anyone else but I'd love to be able to download just the icons without buttons in a large size. Roughly 150X150 so they can be sized down with CoPilot and placed on any custom button.

I'm probably in the minority though because I tinker with graphics too. Most would probably want buttons.

The only input I can provide that might be deemed helpful would be to create "Pressed" states too. There are so many graphics templates and buttons floating around out there that only provide the static state and it's a HUGE oversight in my mind. It's always nice to see that you've pressed the button.......

Thanks again for the awesome graphics and the fantastic way you've set up your website for selections! You have been my #1 resource for channel icons and I'm very grateful!

You can speak for me :)

I cant use buttons with the icons on them because i need to match the clients GUI. 150X150 network/station icons that i could use with copilot would be very valuable to me.

My advice would be to create packages like "DirecTV" "Comcast" "Whatever" and sell these as sets and keep them updated. Then people can buy the set for Comcast for example, use their GUI themed blank button to generate their own favorite buttons.
