    I've tried to make it as clear as possible in my instructions here . TivoWeb has a module called Logos which allows you to upload logos. Simply use the Import Logo section to upload the logos from your PC to TiVo's internal database. Once there, use the channel listing in the Logos module to associate the logos to the various channels.

    If you've got a lot of logos, I'd recommend using Stuart's script which'll automatically associate all logos to their associated channels (providing the filename matches the channel's call sign as mine do). Detailed instructions on how to use that are on my web site (the one linked to above and in my .sig).

    You'll need to reboot TiVo to see them which ever method you use.

    Fed up of the same old logos appearing on your Now Showing screen? Want a trip down memory lane? Read on.

    Attached to this file is a set of channel idents based on what TiVo may have presented on these channels years ago had the technology been available then. They're all TiVo compatible so you can try them yourself if you've all kitted up for logos, be it TivoWeb or stuart's scripts!

    There's no fixed time period, just old logos and idents that I can remember mostly from the early eighties to the early nineties. Here's what the icons look like on the PC:

    Have fun! I may or may not add to these in due coruse - I think the Central sphere used in the late '80s to early '90s is essential to this set!

    I've got another release of the "proper" logos about to be made available too - lots more minority channels added as well as some of the gaming channels.

    ^^ I remember creating that one :D

    I love the nostalgic BBC2. And it doesn't need purple, so it'll look right! ;)

    Perhaps it's time to create a Thames logo a la <a href="http://625.uk.com/tv_logos/logos/thames_boobs.jpg">Kenny Everett</a>? :)

    If you're wondering what the yellow blob on the UK Gold logo is, they had a golden dog as part of their ident at the very beginning and that's what it looks like at about 40 pixels in height with a reduced colour palette!

    On a more practical note, I live in an area where I can recieve two ITV regions. In fact, anyone with Sky can recieve 2 regions if you're outside the London region as audio description is only provided on the London ITV.

    Up until now I've used the same ITV logo for both regions (I hardly ever record from the more distant region unless there's an interesting regional programme). I decided however to identify the separate regions using the official ITV regional idents.

    In fact, this is how ITV1 brands itself online - you'll now only see the ITV1 logo (in the same style as ITV2,3 and 4) on screen it seems.

    So, attached are the regional idents. I'm going to carry on using the yellow ITV1 logo for my main region but I'll use the regional ident to differentiate the more distant station.

    This will be included in the next distribution on the web site.

    Does anyone else foresee using these idents? Would anyone use these to identify their main ITV station instead of the yellow ITV1? Just interested to know, that's all.

    There have been a few changes and additions posted here over the last couple of weeks - it's time to consolidate all of these into a new build on the web site.

    On the web site you'll find the lastest logo files for Sky and Freeview. Main changes are: some rebrands, a new regional ITV set of logos, loads of new minority channels (mostly gaming), and the 2 new ITV logos - CITV and ITV Play (coming next month) - see attached for the final two if you just want those. Call sign of ITV Play to be confirmed. its logo was found on page 39 of a rather long power point presentation from ITV.

    Thanks as usual for your sterling efforts, aerialplug!

    Have now updated to the latest 8.4.0 package and my Now Playing is looking a lot more colourful... :)

    I was around a friend's house the other day who has an un-modded TiVo. Now Playing looked decidedly naked without the logos ;)

    Not only colouful, but the logos also make individual programs stand out more in what has become a large list of archived material.

    Thanks also for the headsup about BBCLON etc. It's always good to have an extra channel and now that Telewest has added these channels to their list, I now have three extra channels! :)

    I say three and nor five because Ch4 and Ch5 are no different in their regional forms and furthermore, adding them to my favorite list as a test caused them to disappear from view altogether when using PJs Grid module.

    I now have them in 'Channels I receive' but not in 'Favorites' and now they appear in the Grid module again.

    Yes, I spotted that - I think they changed the callsign at some point. I'll look into it tonight. Ethernet port on my home PC to TiVo is currently bust so I can't log in to find out what it should be.

    Thanks for helping me with the hosting - yes, I now have my own hosting with enough bandwidth to cope with Underground History (about 30-35 GIG a MONTH!) so I've moved everything over there. I did the main move some time ago but then this morning I noticed the links to the individual logos were still going over there.

    Once again, thanks for hosting them for me when I didn't have enough space on my own site.

    No worries on the space/bandwidth 'lend' ... glad to be of help/support


    BTW - when did they bork up the Sky BoxOffice to be SBO1-36 and SKBO37-> ?

    I've spotted 2 other glitches - one pair is missing an s1-p1 logo (MTV Base) and another pair is missing the s2-p2 (Reality TV Extra). I'll sort these out and update the web site with a point update.

    I cannot seem to get the "import" function to work in the Logos module for TWP. I can pick a png file, but the moment I click IMPORT, I get the "page cannot be displayed" response. I have a DSR708 zippered TiVo.

    I have tried a different PC on the same network, and I have tried a different browser (Firefox). I have re-run rbauch script. Everything else seems to work fine except Import Logo. I have tried importing to both Tivo and DirecTV space with no luck.

    I have seen a few people mention this problem before with no responses.

    Any ideas? :confused:

    Putting back the channels logos once again... :rolleyes:

    Could someone tell me:-
    Where the generic BBC logo lives?
    Where do imported logos go (the same place)?

    I ask because the imported More4+1 logos, more4p1-tw-s1-p1.png and more4p1-tw-s2-p2.png according to TivoWeb, don't show up in /var/hack/logos using ls in a telnet window, or in an FTP listing.

    I'm trying to rename some logo files so that, when I next use loadlogos.tcl, I get the logos I want first time. ;)
