It has passed the forum briefly earlier, but I think it may be a simple yet useful change.
Some TV/Radiostations, bands, songs etc. have names containing characters like "/?\<>!" etc.
Windows will not allow a file to contain these characters, which makes it quite impossible to generate a thumb for this item.
It might be a good idea to have a "wildcard" character, say ~, so that (eg.) the belgian TV station KETNET/Canvas can have the thumb KETNET~Canvas.png.
Now, why not just change the station name, KETNET Canvas is just as clear. Sadly, my grabber delivers the name including /, so changing it will let me loose EPG.
