Channel Logo

This guide is written for Windows PMS, use as quick guide.

 


Step 1: Obtain logos

Get some channel logo; download, create your own, or use zap2xml with the -i command.

Example:

zap2xml -Z 01851 -Y USA-OTA01851 -d 2 -i icons_folder

A folder called icons_folder should be created in your folder that contains zap2xml.

High resolution logos are no longer available through zap2xml.

 


Step 2: Resources Folder

Navigate to your HDHR Viewer Plug In contents/resources folder.

Copy the logo and named accordingly to the HDHR Viewer Settings.

 

HDHR Viewer settings: Channel Logo match by channel = number.

Format:

logo-Channel.Number.png

logo0

 

HDHR Viewer settings: Channel Logo match by channel = name.

Format:

logo-Channel-Name.png

logo1

 

Note: Permitted characters are – (dash), _ (underscore) and . (dot). Another other characters removed. Example:

My Channel -X.GFD%$#/a? = logo-MyChannel-X.GFDa.png

 

Note: Case-sensetive depending on OS. You can find the file name by looking at the Plug-In log file (com.plexapp.plugins.zyhdhomerunviewer.log). Example:
