Great! Just came here to ask for the TV2+1, Sommet Sports & Al Jazeera, as well. Love the white ones, thanks for the effort.

cgreenwood: Has anyone else noticed that MyChannelLogos has started charging for a version that will work with Windows 8? Is there another way to load the logos without having to pay for MyChannelLogos?


That's testing my memory. Under the covers all it is doing is
- creating an xml file that defines for each channel, the filepath for the logo, and then
- loading the xml into the media center database via loadmxf.exe (in %windir%\ehome)

There is a backup xml file that could be used as a starting file that could edited.
From memory its called called lineups and its under a backup sub directory under the media center database directory (which was something like something like %programdata%\Microsoft\ehome\mcepg2-0)

The xml file format is described here - specifically you're adding some GuidImage entries that define an image and the filepath to them, and setting the logoImage of the channel's Service to point to the right GuideImage.

rhysb your logos are awesome nice work and how did you get it to say "Freeview | HD" instead of "guide"? That adds a nice little touch.

I've updated all the logos. Link is in the first post. Let me know if I've missed any.

@SlayerWilliamX You can create Favourite channel lists and name them whatever you want. Have a look in Tasks->Settings->TV->Guide->Edit Favorite Lineups.

It's only a few bucks. I thought it was worth it to be able to nto only do the logos easily but change all the column widths, number of rows, show 3 hours ahead, remove channel numbers, etc so easily too. The default logo column looks stupid with all the blank space in it.
