    4.X and NP Logos

    Is there a way to upgrade/install an image and get the Nowplaying logos to work? I have tried installing a 4.0 image but most of the logos are not there. I tried upgrading that image with 4.01b slices and the logo issue did not change?

    Has anyone that has upgraded a 3.1X image noticed if the logos are fixed?
    Has anyone that is looking at the 6.X (future DTV image) seen if the logos work?

    Thanks

    I have 4.0.1b-02-2-240 and all logos in Now playing seem in tact. Ive got background of the TIVO "mousetrap" or at least it reminds me of that game I once had when I was a kid..... aaahhhhhhhhhh Memories....

    Ok, back on the subject, I have a Big TIVO guy in my upper left corner, but most imprtantly, all my logos are listed down the right side for every channel I recorded from. I went from an empty drive to that version. seems all png's are there.

    It was from Emule and was a -xxx file. Many to pick from it seemed.
    2 HR20-100's with OTA (Thank GOD I didnt get a HR21)
    3 HDVR2's with 6.2, Sub'd, Hacked and 160 gig Seagates.
    1 HR10-250 with 250 WD and 300 Seagate, fully Hacked
    3 HDVR2's with 6.2, Hacked and 160 gig Seagates.
    Who doesnt have 7 Tivos? and with 5 computers, contain 2 Terabytes of storage medium in their house??
    Thanks to all who makes up DDB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Interesting, I wonder I they could be exported so I could import them into my 4.0 unit?

    Im not sure, but I assume they are png files in a folder? I am just about to the point of tinkering with them. Ive also read about slice containing them in other threads.

    The only logos missing are my local channels but I assume thats becasue DirecTv has assigned me my locals actual channel numbers and Tivo doesnt know channel 11 is WB, and Channel 2 is Fox, etc......

    Look in MFS under /TuikRes/Holder/*/channellogos* . They are PNG's stored as tyFiles.

    Sure, its easy enough to find the images. But, where is the relationship between the images and the channels defined?

    I'm seriously considering writing something to extract the logos from 3.x and upload to 4.x. However, my 4.x DTivo's have absolutely no functioning logos. Anyone willing to share their knowledge (and/or some object dumps)?

    Or, will I have to buy a SA just to figure this out?

    I've seen this problem mentioned in the 4.X RID support thread as well, and I have this problem after using AW's slice upgrade method. The funny part is, that all of the logos show up in TWP on the Logos page - they are just not being associated correctly for some reason with the NP list.

    I don't know the answer to this, but TWP allows you to import logos and associate them with channels. I don't know what the correct format is for the imported logos, but I'm sure it's around here somewhere...

    Except 4.01b and later, the logo storage location has changed and import doesn't work correctly. See my previous posts about it

    Someone needs to update the logos module and I do not know tcl or I would

    Any news on the logos with 4.01b on a RID system? I've read the 2 main threads on this and nothing past 12/8/04. Anyone working on it?


    I miss my logos.

    What happened when you inserted the logo slice?

    I dbloaded the slice that you posted and it did not make any changes to my nowplaying list.

    Tivoweb logo.itcl no longer bombs but all logos show up as a white box with a red X in it.

    Not a thing...

    In my Now Playing area the only logos that show up are Cinemax and NBC (Local Channel). I just now tried recording on CBS and no logo. There are movies from HBO, TMC, Action, etc on here and no logos for them.

    All of my logos in TWP come up fine. Fine in the banners as well. Just not in Now Playing. *shrug*

    Update...

    Appears as though logos are showing up over time now *shrug*

    I now have logos for NBC (local), HBO, TMC, HBO Signature, Showtime Too, Cinemax, MoreMax, Starz and Encore but apparently no others. This is more than I had before but still not all of them.

    More information?

    I too have this problem on non-RID units (HDVR2 and DSR7K) that I upgraded to 4.01b with HMO. I only get NBC in NowPlaying, but I get all logos in the channel banner (hit Display while watching LiveTV). I think that this is a 4.01b thing, not a RID vs non-RID thing.

    Since 4.01b moved their logo storage location in MFS to TuikRes, I decided to hunt in there and found a small list for NowPlaying:

    This explains why NBC is the only NowPlaying I get (as I don't record anything from the other channels in this list -- I bet if I recorded something from Sundance it would have a NP logo).

    So, the question to those with more experience/understanding than I, is how do I get more logos into this MFS store and how do I associate them with the corresponding channels?
