Its possible, but I think there may be solutions out there that do this already. Take a look at EpgCollecter for starters.

I like the new update. Good job. How about the ability to change the channel display name. I hate what windows media center has. I want this. https://www.dropbox.com/s/hu6purqjofcu9n...1.png?dl=0

I would like to add a channel editor too. Until then, you can always use wmc to rename the channel, serverwmc will use the new name

Yeah I guess I'll wait. Doing it in WMC is a lot of work. If I do 1 then I have to do all 630+ of them.

Another request, do you mind changing default icon from jpg. JPG doesn't support transparency. .PSD, .PNG, .TIFF or .GIF can be used instead. Specially .PNG unless you picked it for a reason. I am trying to do what I mentioned in the post about my girl. Theoretically, if I put a blank picture with a blank background obviously it'll just appear in the pvr as nothing being there. And it should work with all skins. Theoretically Smile

Damn, I thought about making the name of the default file be set-able in the config file, but then thought no one would use it. I doubt kodi can handle the other formats, except for png. Maybe it detects the file type, and ignores the extension, to find out, rename your png file as 'default.jpg' and see what happens. I will make the file set-able in the next rev.

I agree that renaming more than a couple of channels in wmc is a pain. Have you tried changing the setting in the 'channels' tab to 'full service name'? You might get more agreeable names that way, while you wait for a channel editor.

I was suppose to tell you to use .png when you came up with the idea and it slipped my mind. After I read the change log I was like 'damn it how did I forget to mention it. I looked through your configure file to see if I can see where the name of icon is configure but I couldn't find it. Big Grin

I think png should do. I've never seen logos in any other formats.

Yeah I've already tried before I wrote to you. It doesn't work. At least for me.

I didn't know that existed. I'll try it. Thanks.
