    TV Listings Back Color & Logos

    G'day...I have noticed that TV listings add-on is not showing the channel logos whereas the default guide is. Also, on the TV Listings is there a way to change the background color in the area where the channels are listed? I have tried most of the skins and they all appear to over bear the channel logos because some of the logos are dark in nature. As a side note, on my other computer the default guide and TV Listings are showing channel logos. However, the channel logos are still too dark for the background. Any suggestions? TIA Cheers!

    Okay so on line 44 it indicates...<ChannelHeaderStyle>Number - Name</ChannelHeaderStyle> is this the same parameter? Cheers!

    edit...Never mind I was looking a wrong XML file. Cheers!

    I went into users>public>NPVR>skin>NextBlue>TVListings>TVListi ngs.xml and changed the ChannelHeaderType using all 3 options and got no changes at all. Then I just left it blank with none of the options (1,2,3) and got the same results. Could it be the wrong XML file? Here are the results.

    TV Guide Next Blue using options 1,2 and 3 and for IPTV Channels got me this. Channel icons but without color.

    Finally TV Listings using options 1,2,3 for both IPTV and Local channels got me this. No channel icons and no color.

    Yes mine is at default as well. However, Since I am using the TV Listings plugin I thought I had to make my changes in the XML file as described in post #5 since that is subject to the TV Listings plugin. If not then I will go into C:\Users\Public\NPVR\Skin\Default\TV Listings instead and make changes there. Just need some clarification since the guide you mentioned in post #2 was describing their XML edits. Cheers!

    G'day...I went back to the default TV Guide and left the TV Listings plugin alone for a bit. So, now trying to map just one channel logo as a test to see how it works. I put the channel logo in Users>Public>NPVR>Media>Channels folder (see below pic).

    I named the logo ABC HD just like it show up in the channels tab (see below).

    Unfortunately, I still get the channel logo that was there to begin with (see below).

    Do I need to delete the db3 file or where is my mistake? I have attached the log file in case it is needed. Thanks in advance, cheers!
