I thought I would give this its own thread. KVH asked if I could supply blank buttons for the activities on the free MX-980 template that we offer. So, I went in to the template itself and changed all the activities to the new buttons and figured out what font to use to get it to align properly on the smaller buttons.

There is also a new folder included with the download that contains the entire activity button library in both the small and wide versions.

Just make sure when you change the text on the small (120 x 70) activities that you put the cursor in front of the new text and hit the return / enter key twice. If you use the text alignment tool and set it to bottom, it doesnt appear in the correct place.

New activities include AirTunes, outdoor speakers, and an updated AppleTV.

Enjoy.

Nice, thanks. I like how your icons all share the same shape. Makes putting them on buttons much easier.

Youre welocome KVH, Ive been wanting to do that anyways so all I need was someone to give me a little push to get it done. The unique thing about the 980 editor is all the buttons have to be 120 x 70 or 240 x 70 so they snap into place. Its actually very easy to use, just limited on the graphic side as to how custom you can get.

That is why I converted a blank 12 device template instead of starting from scratch, it will self populate from the pre-programmed IR list, but I always find I need to rearrange the predetermined order URC chooses for them.

If anyone want to see new icons added, just let me know and I can take care of them and I will offer them as free add-on from the downloads section.

For gwstudios,

Do you know if the device/activity icons in the mx-880 using CCP can be replaced with some of your icons( modified to 88 x 59)?

I have been playing around with your PS3 icon (downloaded from you website), and using the VFD tool supplied by another member, I can unpack/repack the VFD's but can't for the life of me get it to show up in any of the Images/Text Only/Icons folders.

However if placed within the Images/Text Only/Elements folder (by replacing the default blue button) it shows up. But that does'nt help me, cause then every new button added has the PS3 as the background!

I realise you seem to concentrate on the 980, however you do very nice work so thought I would ask,

There is a few of us wanting to know if this is possible, so if you could put us out of our misery,

Thanks in advance,
D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F

Hi Compass,

Let me look into that and get back to you, I thought about the same thing a while ago but figured the graphics are buried in some sort of proprietary format / file.

There is a way to get new graphics into an 880. Someone on URC's forum found where and how to do it.....

Once you have the new graphics, put them into program files/Universal remote control/CCP/mx-880/images/... then pick a folder (i've been using alpha)/icons.

Next step is to open CCP, and open mx-880 file. Now when you Create & Name Devices the images you added will show up here. Add them as a device to any page other than page 1(for ease of use). From here you can now copy and paste anywhere in the remote. I'm going from memory here so I may have missed a step, but that's the gist of it.

I have a couple more button requests.... How about something for a computer. A graphic for a desktop or a laptop computer? I don't think they have to be mac or pc specific unless you wanted to go that far!

Also how about one for Vudu, or even a Roku??

HVH,

I already have the icons for the different streaming services, as well as a notebook and desktop PC, I just need to place them on the MX-980 activity buttons in both sizes. I should be able to have them for you at some point today and I will post the link here when they are ready. I will also add them to the free download when I get a chance.

Thanks for the input, however I've tried that method(and variations of) numerous times and it just doesn't work for me :(

Sorry for bringing back this old thread but I'm just starting to use URC again, after almost seven years of using RTI ,so I'm not 100% familiar with the procedures yet. Is it possible to incorporate this template as part of CCP? If that is the case how can this be achieved?
I'm always right. The only time I was wrong was the time that I thought, that I was wrong.

Thanks for the Free music choice buttons on the site. What would it cost for 2 that are missing? Party Favorites and Todays Country.
