Channel Icons in MythTV on Ubuntu 6.10

If you want the channel icons on your MythWeb and MythTV you can use the following information to do so. I dont know why this is not included in MythTV .20 but you can grab it via SVN


First install XMLTV

sudo apt-get install xmltv

Then you need to download and rename the perl script

wget http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/browser/trunk/mythtv/contrib/mkiconmap.pl?format=raw
mv mkiconmap.pl\?format\=raw mkiconmap.pl

Run the script, I had to do this twice before it would work properly

perl mkiconmap.pl

Once you have done this just import it into the Myth Database

mythfilldatabase –import-icon-map iconmap.xml –update-icon-map
