I've started using EPG Collector to import guide data into Windows Media Center, Win 8.1 (I had previously been using EPG Collector to create the xmltv file and Guidehound to do the import). The only problem i'm having is that channel logo's and movie posters are not displayed on my Xbox extenders - yet they are on the PC.

Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue... or if anyone is still using WMC and extenders?

WMC guide on the PC

And on the Xbox

strangely, my MCE (win7, epgcollector with bigscreen EPG) shows all the channel logos correctly, but the xbox 360 extender only shows two or three - TV1+1 and TV2+1 logos showing, none of the main channels (1,2,3 etc)

Guidehound was really good re the images, both the Xbox and MC displayed all the images. Unfortunately it stuffs up the guide data when daylight savings changes over, so I thought I'd let EPG Collector have a go at it.

Anything to do with which directory the images are stored in maybe?

Yep, that was the problem - the Xbox extender accounts had no access to the folder the images were stored in (Users\AppData\Local\Geekzone\EPG Collector\Images\).

Brilliant, thanks.
