Screenshots of your layout

Postby htsource » Tue Oct 07, 2003 9:33 pm

Hi,

I'd like to know if it's possible for others to post their layouts similar to the download section with remotecentral.com. It'd help newbie such as myself to get a few ideas from others to get started.

The samples from MainLobby are great but more would be better :)

Thanks,

Simon

Nobody replied to this? As someone who is sitting on the sideline wondering if I should abandon my own project and jump on MainLobby/MusicLobby I would love to see some examples on how people are using theirs. As an owner of a MX-500 remote I am not convinced that MainLobby is worth the effort, but I am open minded so convince me with some examples of what you are doing. Thanks

John

OK; so here are some prt scr shrunk images of my mainlobby scenes.
The DVD and Music Centre menu items just go to DVDLobby and MusicLobby respectively which have not been modified much. Nothing too exciting I'm afraid

You find it handy to control your system using this screen on a touch screen over using a nice remote control like the MX-500?

It all depends how and who will be using the system. Hard-button remotes are one way to provide input to the system, touchscreens are another.

Not sure if the MX-500 allows macros to each button or not, but the non-IR, TCP/IP route in which my airpanel controls everything makes it nice for roaming without a fugly IR net with IR-RF relays, etc.

Touchscreens are highly modifiable to provide 'icon' operation . I suppose if I was going to go for a small handheld remote, I'd go the Pronto route for the macroing and good looks.

In the end, they're just different ways to get the same information into the system.

The MX-500 can handle quite elaborate macros and the newer MX700 offers an USB interface making it much easier to program. I prefer the tactile feel of a button in my hand to operate in the dark. The MX-500 has a cool blue lightup scheme if you need to see the buttons. I love touch screens for the music and dvd databases and things like that. I am just not convinced anyone around here will want to use one for watching movies or operate Tivo, ect.

My screen shots

My first try at screen shots. The lights around the start screen flash and change patterns. I converted animated GIFs to .swf files. When I click Weather Today HAL2000 will announce today’s locale weather forecast same with tomorrows forecast and time.

This is my TV favorite channels and my AC control screen. The divide lines in the TV channels are animated.

Opening PlasmaPlex scene, displayed on the plasma. It's animated - this is how it looks when closed.

Credit where credit is due - these scenes were designed by Mario for me some time ago.

How about a link to the screens instead?

Always a work in progress...

I didn't want to take up a meg on the ten images, so here's a link:

http://www.keyesfamily.org/ha/mainlobby/

I stuck with the Music Lobby and DVD Lobby background theme since I can't do much to modify Music Lobby or DVD Lobby's layout... and those are the two things that I use most. Music Lobby is ALWAYS up on at least two touchpads.

My five-year-old goes to WebLobby every morning to see what the weather will be for the day and determine if he and his brother should be wearing shorts or long pants.

I have no TV Lobby because we do not have any broadcast feed in the house. We get our news via web or streaming audio (NPR, usually) and the kids rely on DVDs for their viewing. I can't STAND commercials!

All the web home automation control stuff is based on HomeSeer UI variations.

The video cameras are actually using a Web Lobby interface to the Axis video cams.
