Channel Logos

  • It is now possible to assign a logo to a channel with the help of the "channellogos.ini" file. The DVBViewer first checks if an entry for a channel is found in this file. If it isn't found it tries the old method (guessing).

  • The format of the channellogos.ini file is quite simple:


    c=[Channelname} (UTF-8 encoded)


    The “c=” entry exists for an improved readability the program just ignores it.

    If a logo can't be found or doesn't exist it is marked with


    This avoids repeating and failing the search over and over again.
