Until now you have been limited to using the Remote Image supplied by Sling Media, either as a realistic image or as the default image. But thanks to some clever work by ‘BobShanghai’ we have figured out a way to customise the image. There are various reasons why you might want to do this:

Make cosmetic changes to the existing image (changing Japanese characters to English or vice-versa)
Change the colour of the remote (black to silver or vice-versa)
Make often-used buttons bigger.
Replace the existing remote image with a completely different one.
Replace the existing remote image with one you have designed yourself. Particularly the default image, which has a number of limitations.

Note: At this stage this customization works only with the browser WebPlayer and the new Desktop Player, and only on a Windows machine. Hopefully we can find someone with a Mac who can test the idea for us. It is unlikely we will ever be able to change the iPad realistic remote and most other devices use a non-realistic image which we cannot change.

The instructions are at http://placeshiftingenthusiasts.com/forum/sling-player-remotes/customising-the-remote-image-on-your-slingplayer-1/
