EDIT: 22.09.08
Added Russia Today and TVR channel icons.

Hi all,

I've created some icons for Media Portal, freeview only. Below are 4 examples of the icons included, and a link to download the ZIP file containing all of them.

They've been formatted to a larger size than other's i've found around the place - hopefully to resolve the pixellation that was occuring for me on my 1080 set. They're 98 x 77.

There's also a blank PNG template included should you wish to create more.

TV1 TV2 TV3 C4

You can download the ZIP from here:

Awesome job.

In case anyone finds this helpful, I discovered these instructions for installing channel logos (I assume they are correct but have not tried them myself yet):

2.5. TV Logos

 Obtain TV Channel Icons from any source allot can be found from the MP forums, Logos for Brisbane, Australia Can be found Here

Others countries / regions can be downloaded from:

Place these logos in the following directory:

 C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Thumbs\TV\Logos

The name of the file must match exactly that of your channel name as found in the TV Channel setup

Thank you for the logos.

The correct default directory to install is

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\thumbs\tv\logos

You need to enable viewing of hidden and system files to see the application data directory.
If you can't see the directory load My Computer
Then press ALT+T
Click Folder Options
Click View
Click [X] Show Hidden Files and Folders

As above the file name of the logo needs to match the name in TV Server channels list
