Channel Icons...anyone got some?
« on: April 05, 2008, 01:18:09 am »
zap2it labs is no longer providing channel icons..

MythTV is still trying to download them and the lyngsat channel icons, but is this is only a subset of the icons.

Someone proposed to me that we could preload a bunch of icons if we knew someone with a 704 system with a large set of icons, like someone that gets a large selection of DishNet or DirectTV channels.

Is there anyone here with such a system?

BTW For 804, the MythTV folks are working on a new channel icon service, but it's not completely there yet..

they are all available at lyngsat.
The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.

From looking at master_iconmap.xml in MythTV:
  7% lyngsat
 32% zap2it [defunct]
 61% pbs

The PBS ones are individual icons for the various affiliates. So excluding them, about 18% are lyngsat and the 82% zap2it. Now some many of those zap2it icons do have lyngsat equivalents, but I am hoping for a quick solution here short of manually finding equivalent icons at lyngsat.

I just checked in a much updated master_iconmap.xml file.

I need to do a little tweaking of the script that loads the iconmap, but with this new iconmap we should be able to download most of the icons we had in 704 + it updates the iconmap with the new ION, CW and MY networks; these new TV networks replaced the PAX, and WB networks.

The wikipedia was very helpful in making the modifications and finding the missing icons so I owe a debt of gratitude to all the folks that keep that resource current.

How does one check in this master icon set. I too only have like 5 icons, and I have dish network. I would really like to figure out how to get the rest. I seem to remember back in my mythtv days running a command like
 mythfilldatabse --import-icon-map channels.xml
or something like that. I guess the question is where to get the channels.xml file?
