bob,
i was wondering about how these would look on the 1000.
this may seem outrageous to suggest, but if there is a
demand for these icons sized to 1000 file spec i would
be happy to resize the layered file and resave the entire
lot for that remote.

here's the outrageous part... as a mere enthusiast i'm
not going to outlay the cash to pick up the 1000 in order
to test the graphics. if enough of you would like them
and want to pull together the $$ to send me a 1000 i will
be happy to resize the native files and post a harmony
1000 icon set.

Well, I may not be THAT interested, but depends on the response from others. I think the first thing to determine is what the REAL icon size on the 1000 is. As I mentioned, they say 64x32, but it seems half of that is taken up with the channel number which is not an option not to display. So I think its really 32x32. And if that is the case, just how much quality can be poured into that size?

And then, the 1000 limits you to 24 favorite channels. Just not a lot. So I might have to lobby Logitech to increase that to at least double.

So, perhaps you could create a test account and say you have a 1000 and see what you can see about the real icon specs and if this is worth anyone;s time or money.

very good idea bob.
although to really know how they would look i'd want to see them on an actual remote. to start i'll do as you suggest- set up a new profile for a 1000 and resize a few sample icons. if you're agreeable, i may then send them to you and ask you to load them on your remote as a test. i'll get a good cross-sample of large iconic and minute, difficult-to-read art.
it'll be a few weeks after i can come up for air from the one icons and work before i'll get started on testing for 1000.
i'll keep you posted if your okay with that.

Happy to do that and even take a picture of them on the 1000 for you. Just let me know.

Only caveat is I am out of town on business and vacation from Feb 22 to March 12. So either before or after works fine for me.

Thanks.

Thanks for your wonderful work on the channel icons.

However I have a request that is along the same line as the channel icons. Could you make some brand logos for the slide show on the Harmony One.

For example:

Pioneer Elite
Pioneer
Xbox 360
Dolby Digital
Blu Ray
HD DVD
Definitive Technology
Sony ES
Sony
Sony Playstation 3
Wii
Denon
Marantz
DVD logo
etc.

Hopy you get the point. I don't know what the specifics are but you are better informed on this work than I am.

i can certainly do that. how about the logos on a black background with the reflective effect that the one uses on the usb connection screen?
good?
those will be a week or two out. i'm buried at work and have a pretty long list of channels building up.
i'll post when ready as usual.

bob,
i noticed on another forum that the new software update now includes higher-res icon compatibility for the 1000, or they're a new size?... i'm not sure what the new aspect ratio of the icons are. can you find that out for me and post? if it's close to the one's icon size i may be able to simply do a batch conversion of those to work on the 1000.
thanks in advance.

I did not know there was a new software build.

I'll check it out and let you know, Randy. Thanks for the alert.

Ok, updated both software and firmware. Don;t see any difference expcept for the icons and the resolution Is better. Size seems the same. Latest seems to be 36x32 for dimensions. And doesn;t it seem foolish to waste all the space they are wasting?

But, excuse the poor picture. I didn't want to go dig out the DSLR. But, you will see resolution is better on your icons than on the KRON4 from an older batch.

wow that's a shame that they do not allow you to use that entire space for the graphic. at 36x32 that doesn't leave alot of options for tiny type... just an icon would be best like the abc or comedy central in your pic.
after i wrap up a bulk of the one icons i'll crop/size a few of them to the 1000 size and send them over to you to test. between your trip and my work it may push into march.
i've also received a request to create a 880/90 set. i'll plan that down the line. plus i can post the set i made for my old 720.
