    It was was the most watched surely purely because it was one of only two FTA music channels on Freeview. Probably it had the more viewers of the two only because it had a lower channel number than TMF.

    But now with Freeview taking off one would have thought that being FTA on freesat.co.uk was also important, although having said that there are around one million Sky Freesatters compared to only around 200,000 BBC/ITV freesat.co.uk types at the present time. However obviously the freesat.co.uk brigade are likely to increase vastly once the Humax HD PVR is launched, presumably just in time for the xmas sales rush.

    A Stone of Sisyphus job - but rewarding in the end!

    Life's been insanely busy these days with many other other priorities.

    Still - I hope to get a proper logo distribution together soon. As a taster, here is my first draft of the three new Sky logos. They fit in well with the new re-brand - it took over an hour to get these done as logos with transparent backgrounds are incredibly fiddly to get right, and I'm not 100% happy with a couple of them still.

    I hope you like them.

    As usual, comments appreciated, positive or negative and I hope to get a proper full set uploaded soon.

    Based on the fact that TiVo wiped the logo database with an update yesterday, a new distribution is being worked on and will be available hopefully later today - keep your eye on this thread for more information.

    A beta version of 9.5.0 can now be found here.

    Could you please download it and try it out - I'm sure I've made a couple of omissions or possibly forgotten to change a callsign, but it looks complete on my Now Showing screen.

    Any feedback here would be appreciated and fed into 9.5.1 soon.

    All looks good, just the following minor issues:

    SKY1-s1-p1.png and BBCALBA-s1-p1.png seem to be missing from the Sky set.

    MTVHITS-s1-p1.png is called "MTVHITSs1-p1.png" - looks like it's a typo (missing hyphen) in the filename as MTVHITS-s2-p2.png is correct.

    ESPCLUK has an extra hyphen after the call sign (ie. ESPCLUK--s1-p1.png and ESPCLUK--s2-p2.png) - is this correct?

    FIVEUP1 and DSCHDUK have no logo in the Sky set.

    SKY1HD still has the old SKY1 logo - it just needs the new SKY1 logo (unless there is an HD variant?)

    Many thanks for putting this together! :)

    Thanks - I'd already spotted Sky 1 and BBC Alba - both are missing an S1 logo

    I've also spotted a pallette problem with Fiver and there's something not quite right with Five (though it's rendering correctly on the TiVo screen).

    As to the HD logos - I don't bother with those as TiVo can't do HD...

    A couple of logos missing for Freeview - 4MUSIC (fairly new, don't think we've ever had one for this channel), and Absolute Radio / ABSOLRA (new name for Virgin Radio). Otherwise looks good!

    Fair enough, although I use my TiVo to instruct my SkyHD box to record HD content so I still have content on my TiVo from HD channels, albeit in SD resolution.

    Would it make sense to duplicate the SD logos for HD channels? I'm thinking Sky1HD in particular, and maybe the Sky HD sports channels as well. BBC HD would be nice.

    Thanks again.

    Can't you do this manually? eg before there was a separate C4+1 logo, I just copied C4-s1-p1.png to C4P1-s1-p1.png, and the same for s2-p2...

    I suggest you copy them yourself if you want them.

    I can see a point for the BBC HD logo - try using the Sky EPG to search for anything firther than 3 days in the future - it's horrifically slow! I wonder if the for thcoming major upgrade to the EPG software will address this issue? Anything else, just clone the logo and give it a new callsign - it'll automatically be associated if you're using loadlogos.

    Of course, but if aerialplug can do it in the set it benefits everyone (or at least those that record "HD" content on their TiVos).

    Just a little script to duplicate any missing logos. Copy it to a directory on your tivo, chmod +x fix_logos.sh then cd to the directory containing your logos and run the fix_logos script, finally load the logos into your TiVo.

    As it stands it will create logos for the following channels/call signs:

    Code:
    Source Logo         New Logo
    ===========         ========
    SKY1                SKY1HD
    DISCOV              DSCHDUK
    SKYSP1              SKYSPHD1
    SKYSP2              SKYSPHD2
    SKYSP3              SKYSPHD3
    FIVER               FIVERP1
    SMOVPR              SKYPRHD
    HORROR              HORROR1
    TRUEMOV2            TRUMOV2
    MOV4MEN             MOV4MP1
    DISSCI              DISSCI1
    WATCHUK             WATCHP1
    SKYARTS             SKYART1
    SKYARTS             SKYART2
    SKYARTS             SKYARTHD
    HALLMK              HALLMP1
    GEMSTV2             GEMSTV3
    C4                  C4HD
    
    EDIT2:
    • Added SKYART1, SKYART2, SKYARTHD, HALLMP1 and GEMSTV3
    • Fixes TRUEMOV2 -> TRUMOV2
    • Fixes MTVHITS
    • Now uses sym-links instead of copying - will not overwrite existing logo files.
    EDIT1: Added DISSCI1 and WATCHP1
