setup channel icon

Post by gilles74 » Sun Mar 09, 2014 5:53 pm

During the setup it's very long to dowload the channel's icon if you have dozens channels. If the channel's icon exist for n country, it's necessary to choice one for them. perhaps it's possible to add the country's user; i don't know how it works.

I understood that all information were collected and put into a database that would serve future users. I do not know if this database exists, where it is and how to check or improve.

Can you tell me how it works?

You can get the icons to be automatically populated if the xmltv specify the URL to the icon channel

it's the Snouf idea and he wrote a script for this but now we reflect on how to automate the channel's setup according to a supplier channels pack for xmltv'id, icons, the numbering , frequency, sid (for satellite reception), ... with an external database.
I talked with a mythtv's developer few months ago who had a similar project but I have no news.
i want to know if it's a good idea to start with the icon's database (if this base exist)
