Yes, it's freebie day.... A couple of the members on here (and myself) have been trying to figure out how to customize an MX-880, and after some trial and error, I got everything work perfectly.

There is a new Fusion theme on our downloads page that you can easily install in the CCP editor simply by renaming one of the existing theme folders and copying / pasting a new one. There is also a set of TV and sat radio icons that you can add to the library (857 to be exact) that fit the default button areas perfectly. There are 89 new activity icons and the default CCP buttons, backgrounds, page headers and footers have been changed to match.

Here are a couple of screen captures and instructions are on the downloads page. It only takes about 30 seconds to install.

Enjoy

Edit: Make that 937 icons, I just added the 80 Sonic Tap images to the zip file.

Awesome and thanks for sharing your hard work.

A little update to the MX-880 theme..... Here is a direct link to download a set of colored backgrounds to replace the aqua default color.

[Link: blackmancustoms.com]

Instructions: Once you have the all the new 880 Fusion graphics in place and working, navigate to C:/ Program Files / Universal Remote Control Inc. / Complete Control Program / MX-880 / images / Alpha / Elements

There are four backgrounds in the Elements folder with specific names that the program looks for when selecting the Alpha theme.

Open a color folder in the new zip file, let's say Amber, and select all four backgrounds (Ctrl + A), then copy and paste (do not cut / paste or drag them in) them to the elements folder to replace the default aqua backgrounds. It may prompt you to copy and replace the existing files, click yes for all four.

You can do this while CCP is up and running and your 880 project is open. A few seconds later, you will see the backgrounds change to the new color in the editor. They will be the new default color until you replace them with a different one.

















Enjoy

You might as well download it again. I added Music Choice icons to the zip file a few minutes ago..... I lost count on how many favorites are in there.... something like 982.

Duct, your post made me laugh out loud.

I haven't had a chance to look, but are there any "color" circle buttons in the favs? I use a FAVs page for my DirecTV pages because I can use the Green, Red, Yellow, Blue colors as buttons. (I know its a kludgy workaround, but hey, you do what you have to).

Bubby,

Direct download

[Link: blackmancustoms.com]

Place the new folder in the one called "stationLogo" and you will be able to use them from the image gallery, but only on favorites pages.

I did try that method to see if I could get the colored buttons or favorite icons to show up on a page other than watch, listen, or favs, but the program wont allow anything but plain buttons on the source control pages as far as I know.

How much trouble would it be to resize the Fusion Theme to fit the KP4000??

Howdy, I luv your themes but the clock bar pattern not going full width kinda annoyed me a bit (a bit pedantic I know) so I extended the pattern to the battery and transmit elements like this:



For those that would like these elements, (as it's damned fiddly to get the patterns lined up perfectly), they are HERE - I hope you like them. :-)

Quick question, with the 88x55 music choice logos in MX880 CCP:

Buttons line up on the left side of the display but "float" on the right side - not fully resting on the right side of the screen - is there a setting in CCP I have to tweak to have them right justify?
