iPad w/ CommandFusion (Sorry bout the ipad photo compression of the screens from email transfer)


Early Prototype Video #2



Home Screen:
A/V Room Selection (Left) L-LivingRoom D-Deck B-Bedroom
A/V Power Toggle (Right) LivingRoom Deck Bedroom
Central volume control based on selected location

Security Cameras are displayed from any screen by putting the iPad in the "profile" position.

I wanted two clicks max to any source from any location. Source options are not available up top until you select a location.



XBMC Home Screen
LivingRoom selected
A/V or Light on in LivingRoom and Bedroom (green indicator)



XBMC Movies Screen
28 Weeks Later Selected, click DVD cover to play, fanart displayed in background



XBMC Music Screen
Pearl Jam Selected, Pearl Jam biography displayed, select CD cover to move on to album songs and biography replaced by discography, fanart displayed in background



XBMC TV Series Screen
Select banner to move on to episodes



XBMC TV Series Episodes Screen
Select episode to load episode description and screenshot, click screenshot to play



Heating, A/C and Weather



Lighting Control (Lutron RadioRa)
Left grouped controls are scrollable and control individual strings of light (use slider to dim), Central column is scene buttons and cause multiple strings of lights, A/V equipment and thermostat to react (for example sleep turns off all A/V equipment, sets lights to night lighting mode and bumps thermostat to 72 deg)

Right pane is still under construction. I plan on adding textures for flooring and wall paint, furniture, cabinets ect and refining the light indicators.

Rough (very unfinished screens)

DirecTV
I just started a subscription for channel guide info and plan on placing a scrollable guide where the DirecTV logo is located. I'm not sure that CF can handle this the way I want yet and will probably end up generating the guide by day as an image with perl and gimp on my apache server running on my HTPC until CF has stacked lists.

I wish DTV's RS232 protocol wasn't so abysmal. It would be nice to schedule the DTV by using the aforementioned guide, browse recordings, manage recording priorities.. Heck do anything besides push transport buttons via RS232.



Stereo
3 zones, subwoofer, fav radio channels and sound fields. Very rough artwise but fully functional.

Right now UDP broadcasts and an apache server running perl which queries the XBMC database directly and exposes the thumbnail/fanart directories with a friendly URL.

 this will not be my submission, since much of the graphics were taken from Mac's Tactical template.  But I wanted to at least post this to give some props to Mac and the hard work he has put into the template.   This is a sample MX6000 file using graphics from Tactical.

@Terrmul - does your wind indicator work? I am looking for something just like that to add wind direction to my setup. If you don't mind sharing, I would be forever greatful.

@All - there is some great stuff being posted! (Makes me glad I was selected last time - I wouldn't have a shot this time around ;)).

That wind indicator is part of an AMX module for their iWeather service. Unfortunately it wouldn't do you much good unless you are also an AMX dealer.

In essence though all it is, is a background with a needle laid over it for wind direction, one for each point of the compass - 16 in total. Then there is one style of needle for windy, one for breezy - for a total of 32. Whatever system you are using, you'd just have to figure out the way to allocate each direction to a bitmap.

Hope that helps.
