    Hey,

    i found in xmltv specification (http://xmltv.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/xmltv/xmltv/xmltv.dtd) a attribute “icon” on “display-name” object. I guess it can be used to provide in xmltv a channel icon. I created a xmltv.xml with icons, but perfect player doesnt show there.
    I guess the feature is not supported by perfect player or can i use a another field for that?

    Best regards,
    shyim

    Usually, logos from XMLTV have low resolution and are to be used for reference.

    Currently, logos for channels accessed (independently of EPG data) from playlist or in “EPG assign mode” from a local directory or from server.

    EPG assign mode is not a real solution. I host xmltv file and the m3u on my webspace and share the files to multiple perfect players. And configure on any new installation the logos is too much work 🙂

    What do you mean exactly with that? Can i add a icon url to every item in the playlist?

    You can make all settings and assignments, then create backup file:
    Settings->Defaults->Backup settings
    Provide users with only backup file to:
    Settings->Defaults->Restore settings

    To setup logo to channel in playlist:

    #EXTINF:0 tvg-logo="http://mylogosite.com/logos/mtv.png",MTV
    http://stream_address

    Or setup base logos URL:

    #EXTM3U url-logos="http://mylogosite.com/logos/"
    ...
    #EXTINF:0 tvg-logo="mtv.png",MTV
    http://stream_address
