I am trying to compile a list of AV/Home Automation icons. Things like a Music Note, an Ipod, a Game Console, Thermostat etc.

Please list every icon you have ever searched for, purchased or think is needed. It can include sources like Pandora, Apple TV Blu-ray etc but leave out network logos for radio & tv.

Thanks.

 I make them myself, a lot of different ones, depending on the style of the project I'm doing.

When I put together my new system I had to create/find Tonks style button icons for a generic Blu-Ray player and an icon for Netflix streaming.

dabrams,

What did you use for Netflix streaming? I had to make my own as well. Maybe yours is better.

8 Genre icons: Movies, Sports, News, Entertainment, Art&Lifestyle, Premium, Local, Family&Kids, Educational

Room Icons: Bedroom, Living Room/Den, Family Room, Office, Kitchen, Foyer, Dining Room, Bathroom, Patio

Misc: Wireless headphones, Internet Radio, Browser, Settings/Tools, others to be named as soon as I get to the office.

Thanks!

Room Icons are a good idea. I am using Internet Explorer icon for browser and the Gear for settings but i might add the screw driver crossed with wrench for settings also. Internet radio i think im keeping as the normal radio icon unless you have a better idea.

How about genres? I was thinking that the text on the button would be enough. Adding the text to an icon might take up to much space. Or maybe a generic "genre" icon that could work for all of them? What do you think?
