    The two logos have their labels the wrong way around.

    I see that the long-standing typo MTVHITSs1-p1.png is still present.

    Please see my message 913.

    Hiya

    Many thanks for this updated set! It's really great to have more filled in :D

    I'm struggling to find something that hasn't already been commented on. I think the MTVHITS problem was highlighted previously in the thread a few weeks ago, and someone else has pointed out SKY1-s1-p1.png missing (also one of the BBC Alba ones).

    Here's one
    256 SKYART1 Sky Arts 1
    257 SKYART2 Sky Arts 2
    The callsigns are now SKYART1 and SKYART2 rather than SKYARTS. Please could you copy and rename the files in the zip?

    Another one is:
    DISSCI1 Discovery Science Plus One Hour
    At the moment I'm copying and renaming my own from DISSCI, but if you could copy and rename in the zip as has been done previously with the others that would be great :)

    My personal votes for new logos would go to (some could be the same logo duplicated):
    DMAXE - DMAX
    DMAXP1 - DMax Plus One
    DMAXP2 - DMAX Plus Two
    REDTV - Red TV
    DMAXP15 - DMAX Plus 1.5 Hours
    FLAVA - Flava
    OMUSIC - oMusic TV
    DISKNOW - Discovery Knowledge
    DISKNO1 - Discovery Knowledge Plus One Hour
    MILHIST - Military History

    I've added DISSCI1 and WATCHP1 to my "fix logos" script from post #1058.

    This script isn't ideal, but it's perhaps easier to maintain than having aerialplug duplicate logos unecessarily (maybe it could be added to the zip? All the BBC and ITV regions could be added to it eliminating the task of duplicating those logos each time they change)

    Does TiVo support soft links? Would they work better? ie distribute one copy of each distinct image, and have links from the other filenames.

    Yes, I could change to softlinks instead of duplicating - I might do that in the next update if people find this script useful (although to be honest the overhead of duplicating images isn't significant at this time). Typos should be fixed in the set, but if they're not I might try and fix those also (not sure I can do anything with transposed images).

    Ta! But what about SkyArts? ;)

    My point was that aerialplug has already made copies for lots of other +1 channels and there's just a handful of extra ones to copy. C4+1 is I think a rare case where the +1 logo is actually a different image.

    But with the BBC and ITV regions example you have a good point too. Perhaps a combination of the two ideas then - a script or batch file that aerialplug could run on his master set, when preparing the zip file for us all to use? There's hardly any filespace wasted in duplicating the files within the zip, and some people would forget to run it etc so my personal view is that it's simpler if they were copied and renamed by him. But he does enough work on this already so if it's a choice between no logos or having to rename a few myself of course I don't mind the latter :)

    That's really an error in the set which should be addressed at source but I'll add it to the script anyway (the next version will use sym links and if the target files already exist they won't be replaced with sym links).

    I agree on all counts. The script I've created is really just to simplify the situation while "holes" still exist in the logo set produced by aerial - for me it's the HD channels and a few of the +1 logos that are missing and since I'm not the only one I thought I'd share my solution, particularly as the HD situation isn't going to be addressed (which is fair enough).

    With the latest version of the "fix logos" script if aerial decides to fill in some of the missing logos himself then the script will automatically skip over those files.

    SkyArts added - see post #1058.

    EDIT: Now also fixes TRUMOV2 and MTVHITS filename typos.

    I've just realised that the 9.5.0 Sky set contains a filename error for TRUMOV2 which is in the set as TRUEMOV2 (the E should be removed from the filename) - this call sign is in my fix_logo script copying the logo from TRUEMOV however I'm about to change it to copy TRUEMOV2 to TRUMOV2 in advance of aerial fixing the error.

    Added to the fix logo script in post #1058 in case aerial doesn't want to maintain duplicated logos.

    Best sorted out at source, a minute or two's work to have it fixed for good without the need for heroic script amendments :)

    could the add logos .tcl script also copy any duplicate logos? Just a thought.


    Many thanks to aerialplug for all the logo work - very much appreciated :)

    It could quite easily support such a feature, but does everyone use loadlogos.tcl (I'm sure most do!) and is it worth forking it right now when not everyone might want to fill in the blanks?

    I'm not a TCL expert but I'm sure the duplicate logo functionality could be added quite easily to loadlogos.tcl and operate more efficiently than my shell script hack! :) I guess duplicating logos could be added as a non-default option if loadlogos.tcl is forked. If people are interested in such a fork I'll start learning TCL later this week...!

    Thanks for all the feedback - I'll get round to doing these mods as soon as I can. Time that I thought I had to do these over the next day or so has suddenly vanished, but hopefully soon.

    for now, I'm going to avoid adding extra work in including radio stations and to be honest, I struggle to think why some of the lesser music stations need logos as TiVo can only record them blind as they don't have metadata. I realise some occasionally use TiVo to time shift these channels.

    TiVo does indeed to soft linking - but Windows (on which I draw the logos) doesn't support them in the same way that TiVo does - nor does .zip . At the end of the day though, it won't affect the space used in the final logo database as each logo would still be copied for each instance.

    I could at some point move over to a final stage on Linux, but at this stage that would be a lot of work.

    As there's a demand for these, it seems, I'll duplicate the logos for the ones that are simulcast, and I'll see what I can do about new ones for the few that are different (BBC HD, Discovery, FX HD and possibly even Channe 4 HD as I rather like the straightened paper clips they use to make the "hd" bit :)

    Let's get the original set sound first though with the fixes and mods suggested.

    I had the same thing but realised I was pointing loadlogos to the wrong directory. How are you loading the logo's in? Have you rebooted TiVo?

    I have a very different problem.

    I have one programme, right at the bottom of NP that I saved from before BM existed and TW has Sky One. Of course, that channel is not currently available on VM.

    So, given that I can't just import it, is there any way to change the old Sky One logo to the new one?
