Ah, I see, so theses would display in the EPG?


If so where do I get these as I only have typed words in the EPG for the channel names, oh and one for Channel 9 in OZ







Where and how they display is entirely dependant on the skin you are using. They may display in the EPG, infobar etc. Some images have picons available from the feeds for (software install menu etc.).

Hi Guys

Yes - The icons for each channel appear both in the info bar and on Epg Guide.
If done properly it makes the entire Gui look quite Swish.

I usually recompile my picons every 6 months or dependant on how many changes both Sky and or Freeview make to their lineup.
My last compilation was well over a year ago - so slightly out of date.

Once I have finished working in ozz and return to Nz I will do a refresh on the database.

My last compilation can be found at Austech.

Hi Maverick.

Surf on over to austech and grab a copy of the ones I've compiled. All youll need to do is FTP them over to your picon directory and your away.
There will only be a few channels like Duke etc that are missing. All the mainstream channels are done.
Next time I'm home I'll try and get a moment and do an update. I think I have also done icons for DTT aswell.

You're welcome to use the set of logos I made for Mediaportal's LogoManager plugin as a base -

Hi Jasmeet.

I took a look at your icons, seems you only have the Radio icons. Do you have the associated TV icons aswell?.
My compilation has both Radio/TV. .

Yeah, from the page I linked to, there are two folders, one for radio and the other for TV.

For what it is worth, I notice the 'hbbtv' icon is now green instead of greyed out when I change channels.

Hi Guys.




Just recompiled my Picons Database for both Nz Freeview and Sky Services.


Thought i would post them here for those that may want to update there boxes.


Running fine here on Various Dreambox and Vu+Duo2 boxes.


I initially posted them over at Austech - but notice things have become very quiet over there.




Anyway - Have fun.


If anyone has any suggestions, don't hesitate to ping me a message.
