Activity Icons for the new Harmony Touch Remote

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Conducting a quick group to see if it's worth my time to expand the sets of Activity icons for the new Harmony Touch and would like some user feedback. I have a few templates I've created that can be expanded to complete sets for different devices and activities. I've created a complete set for my own AV system with icons that are more relevant to my setup [ie. Watch Movie actually has a Blu-ray logo on a changer AV icon, Play Xbox has Xbox logo on controller, etc].
If you were to load your own set of Activity icons on your remote, what AV components or brands would you like to see represented? I'm open to all ideas at this point and would love to hear back some user opinions.
Best,
R

I would like to see a very simplistic 2D graphic on a colored background (different color sets available). I have not seen the Touch yet but I have always hated the icons for the Harmony activities, too busy in my opinion.

I would like LG for the tv, Panasonic for the blu-ray player, AppleTV (2or3) for the AppleTV, Wii for the game console, and make them available, if possible, for the Harmony 880 and/or Harmony One. I'm using your Media Icons for my favorite channels on the 880.

Since you asked smile.gif,

I second Dropkick Murphy's desire for a color scheme variety. However, the screen for an activity is very large and can probably accommodate more "business" than usual if you are working with the entire screen rather than simply the small square within containing the icon itself.

I'd also like to see a "Squeezebox" activity label if you are working with the entire screen area. Ironic that this is a discontinued Logitech product. My current activity name is able to display only "Squeez..." If you are able to work only within the small box, I'll probably have to go back and divide "Squeezebox" into two or three parts to get it to display completely. It's a shame that Logitech designed this large screen but that it won't accept a 10-character word.

I like the Blu-ray logo idea. I'm not particularly creative, but I think I'd like to see a retro-style TV with rabbit ears or something similar for Watch TV, perhaps headphones or a vintage phonograph for music, etc.

What's the difference between say the Harmony One icons and the Touch's? Is it size?

Size, shape, and background template.

The new Harmony Touch Activity Icon database is now up and running. Let me know what you think. I'd be up to create versions with transparent backgrounds or with different color schemes. Also expecting quite a bit of customization on these so any donations would be greatly appreciated.
Best... and Happy New Year!

Thanks for these. I'd like to see transparent backgrounds to these, and also a few more manufacturers added (like Oppo). They are really great, and I will be making a donation.

I have a transparent version going and will add all of those in the next week or so. Will also add Oppo and any other manufacturers that spring to mind. Happy to take requests on those and also on cable/satellite carriers. Thanks, and happy new year! ,RC

@squareeyes, could you make icons for a HTPC (or XBMC), Sonos and radio ?

Your icons look great, but I'm missing just these three.

squareeyes,

Love the new activity icons. Thankyou!! After many years of using your site for my old 880 and now my Touch remote, I sent you a donation this morning.
In the favorites section I am hoping you can come up with a better looking logo for HD NET Movies. No matter the background used with the one from Harmony the logo can't be seen.

all icons up to this post should be up on the site and ready to download. let me know if i missed any.

also a quick tip. searching "01" or "02" will yield the two entire different sets of activity icons. each one has the same components but a different background template for consistency.
post #25 of 44
Thanks for icons. Used a number of them on my One to setup favorite channels for TiVo use.
post #26 of 44
Thank you so much, already used your icons for my harmony one, now trying to get my harmony touch set up with your great icons.
Sent a donation your way.
post #27 of 44
Thanks for these icons. They look fantastic! Been using the Harmony Touch since it came out (and a few years of the Harmony One before that) but I've never bothered with customizing the look before.

One request - could you do an alienware alien head logo? I use an alienware as my WIndows 8 Media Center PC and it would rock to have a high quality icon of that for the media center activity.
