One of the best sources of channel icons is http://www.lyngsat-logo.com/ . There, you can browse the available icons and choose those appropriate for your system. However, doing so can be a lot of work (requiring many page hits and a lot of time).

An easier approach is to use channel_icons.pl a new feature in the post-0.20-SVN trunk of MythTV to quickly look up the information. Doing so requires the MythTV Perl bindings (which can be compiled/installed by passing the "--with-bindings=perl" argument to the MythTV configure script). It's quite likely that the script will require Perl bindings from SVN trunk. (Can anyone verify whether 0.20-fixes Perl bindings work?)

If you have the appropriate MythTV Perl bindings, checkout the required scripts with:

svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythtv/contrib/master_iconmap

Doing so will create a directory called "master_iconmap" underneath the current directory. The master_iconmap directory contains a file called "channel_icons.pl", which can be used to retrieve channel icon information. See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/commits/255099#255099 and "./master_iconmap/channel_icons.pl --usage" for more information.
