    Hello,

    TV logos in MP2 are added through a self-managed process: users may post their requests for new TV channel logos and/or aliases on Channel Logos. However, the current implementation suffers of two issues:

    • It is a one-way process. While I am monitoring (and also verifying) all the requests, there is no way to give a feed-back to the requesting user. Sometimes there is the need for clarification and this thread provides a place for such discussions.
    • Users can't signal a redundant logo (channel no longer active) and/or a redundant alias in the logomanager.
    This thread is meant to provide a platform for feedback and information exchange on reduandant channel information.

    An anonymous user requested new aliases for
    • KBNT-DT -> Univision
    • KGTV-HD -> ABC
    • KFMB-DT -> CBS
    • KFMB CW -> CW
    Wikipedia shows different logos for these virtual channels. It would be great if the anonymous user provided more input why he/she wants to add them under differnet channels.

    Otherwise my proposal would be to use what Wikipedia displays as logo. For example KFMB-DT is redirected to KFMB-TV with the following logo (which happens to be same as KFMB CW). So some confusion at my side.

    Hello HTPCSourcer!
    I have tried to "suggest a new logo for an existing channel" and i always get "Parameter is not valid." the new logo is a svg image. Is the logomanager website for mp2 working correctly?

    Yes, it is. You need to provide a png, not a svg. But tell me the details of what you want to update.

    Ok, a PNG is needed. This should be written down on the site.
    I want to update the Channel logos for
    ORF 1 HD, PULS 4 Austria/PULS 4 Austria HD (need update to the new logo)
    RTL Austria, Kabel 1 Austria (the logo with the austrian flag is ugly)
    ORF 2N HD (need a logo or a new aliases for ORF 2 HD)
    N24 DOKU Austria, DMAX Austria, Sat.1 Gold Austria, Pro7 MAXX Austria, RTLplus Austria, NITRO Austria, Comedy Central Austria, Hitradio OE3 -> No logo

    thats the first one i have found :D

    The alternative is to use a non-country logo, i.e. the standard one from DE. In that case the aliases need to be added to the DE channels. Same for all other "Austria" versions. My pesonal view is: why use a localized logo?
