    Hi there,

    I'm not really sure if anyone is after this type of thing, but I was following the instructions on this page for how to add extra channel logos, I have created a few myself and they look great IMO.

    I thought I would attach two of them here as they may be useful for anyone wanting to add ITV and Channel 5 logos to their tivo. One thing to note however, on TivoWEB they just appear a black boxes, however they do work fine through the tivo.

    Just thought I would post them here as it might save someone a bit of time...

    Just tried to view the logos using Internet Explorer 6.0 and was only able to view c5-s2-p2.png - the other 3 came out as black boxes.

    Switched to Mozilla 1.0 and was able to view all 4 without problem - might this suggest that the problem is with IE rather than TiVoWeb? Best fire up Nestscape and find out... :)

    Anyone want to do a logo for F1 Digital+? :D

    I didn't know about ITV but I did try the new five logo, it looked so bad I just went for the old one.. I'm going to try a few more and maybe put them on my website when done, depends on if anyone is actually doing this apart from me.

    IE6 with SP1 has them all black! Oh well! :)

    Anyway - sounds interesting but are there potential issues doing this - ie stuff up your box next time TiVo updates the logos?

    I did wonder if 'official' logos would replace amateur ones if and when they were eventually released?

    Since the logos have changed a few times on the Sky channels over the last year there is obviously scope for deleting older logos and replacing them with newer ones... but is this replacement process automatic or are special commands needed when the newer logos are added I wonder?

    I don't think so, if you add them with a high "MFS resource number?" ie 6200000 + which is well above what Tivo are currently using, they would simply replace the channel mapping with their resource number (a much lower number), which means unless you change them back you just have an orphan MFS resource.

    Anyway, deleting the images has been done already (saw it in another thread on this forum). So if it all goes pear shaped you could just delete them.

    I'll try doing this tomorrow and let you all know how I get on. If it works I might update tivo's script to delete the channel mappings before the daily call, then check to see if the channels have been remapped. If not replace them after the daily call cleanup has occured. If they have, don't do anything so you can go into TivoWeb and manually add them again should you want too.

    Tim.

    With the following caveat, *don't* delete the images if they are attached to channels and or the 211 or 222 indices, else you *will* green screen Tivo.

    Yup, they should do. The way it works is that the image is given a very high number, over 6200000. This is then linked to the index with a very high channel number (over 4000). Tivo doesn't replace the "names", as such, but rahter a load of index entries.

    For those lacking a linux machine or perl to do the slice file, it's now available on the same page. I hope you don't mind, Timmy.

    I am quite happy to host the channel files on a single page, and keep a common index for the slices to avoid overlapping numbers.

    Strange :-(

    Just regenerated it here, as well, just in case. New version uploaded.

    They are classed as V4, image numbers 632001 - 632004.

    Now that Tivoweb 1.9.4 Beta 4 allows for the import of channel logos, are there any resources already available before I start to make my own.
    Images must be in PNG format with the same palette and dimensions as other TiVo logos - what is the palette used?
    Tried to upload logosat the top of this thread using TivoWeb and got InvalidFileFormat :(

    Start from some of the logos already mentioned above, and take it from there - try here and download the images linked *not* the one shown.
