TV Logos for UK freeview - help yourself (1 Viewer)

I have installed Media Portal recently - and have to say I'm pretty impressed.

It may not be as user friendly as MCE 2005 - but you can get under the hood - and that was what I found frustrating about Media Center - the lack of expandability and changes. And the lack of support for shoutcast, DVB Radio - and the list goes on and on!

Anyway, I liked the idea of the logos for the channels but couldn't find a set of them anywhere so I decided to make my own.

If anyone is in the UK and uses Freeview on their machine feel free steal these logos off my website - simply right click the image and do "save picture as". You may need to change the names of the files so they show up correctly.

I haven't done all the logo's - just the TV stattions I watch and the radio I listen to.

Happy leeching!

Keep up the good work lads!

Nice logos, any chance you could put them in a zip file as well?

I downloaded a few from sat logos (or something like that, it was on the forum), but they're not as good and quite small.

Excellent, man! I've been messing about for ages trying to create some semi-decent logos, but you have saved me a lot of work. Cheers!

Fantastic work! I've taken the liberty of doing the rest of the channel logos, using your images as a template. Would you mind if I posted them?

    AS - I'll post a link to download all the logos as a self-extracting package if / when tgmweb says its cool. I won't do it without his concent because he put a lot of work into those logos.

    Well I've had no contact (or objection!) from the original author so I'll post them here until I get complaints.

    http://jv.kicks-ass.net/downloads/freeview_uk_tv_logos_v1.exe
    http://jv.kicks-ass.net/downloads/freeview_uk_radio_logos_v1.exe

    The above self-extracting exe's contain all logos for FTA TV and radio stations in the UK. All logo filenames match the broadcast channel names, not those of XMLTV, hence I've also written a utility which will traul the xmltv guide listings and replace its channel names to match. I will post this later on once i've compiled and packaged it.

    Enjoy!

    You're welcome. I'm happy to try to help where I can. :) Let's be really clear. There are channel numbers... and there are channel IDs.

    Great Guide! I have about 20 hours so far in this and love the product. Since you have a very good grasp of it can you point me to how we record tv shows without recording reruns? I know this is probably very basic but anywhere I post on the forum on this is met with a deafening silence. I am sure Mediaportal can do this easily since...
