I've got EPG collector and guide hound all setup to provide the EPG data in Windows 7 media centre.  This is all working correctly to provide a weeks EPG guide for all the channels.
Part of trying to get this to work, I have recently enabled the series posters and those are now showing in Media centre, however I cannot get the Channel logos to show up.
In guide hound Configuration I have coppied the links to the images from the default file and pasted them in for each channel. 
I have checked that the links actually relate to the correct image and they do. 
I have tried downloading a few images to the channel logos folder and changing the link from a http link to file://C:\ProgramData\EpgImporter\ChannelLogos\parliment.jpg and the images still wil not show up.
Nothing seems to work.  I previously had this running on a different PC.
What am I missing?

I have a similar issue, except I am getting logo's for TV3, TV3 Plus one, Four but not the rest.

Have tried jpg and png logo's and doesn't make any difference.

Thonly way I can get all the logos (pgn) into Media Center is by having them all in the folder - C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Local\Geekzone\EPG Collector\Images
and naming them as:
TV1 as 1200
TV2 as 1201
U Live as 1202
7 as 1203
TV3 as 1300
Four as 1301
3 +1 as 1302
C4 as 1303
Maori as 1400
Parliamant as 1401
Trackside as 1402
CTV8 as 1403
Prime as 1404
33 as 1405
Stratos 1406
C as 1408
RadioNZ as 2000
RNZConcert as 2001
BaseFM as 2002

Hope that helps

I ended up re-setting up the tv signal in media center and editing the listing for EPG importer and all the logos appeared as they should.
