One of the best sources of channel icons is . 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 some new features in the post-0.20-SVN branch of MythTV to quickly look up the information. And, the best part is that you can use this new feature even if you're not using SVN--there's no need to upgrade any part of your MythTV installation.

First, checkout the appropriate portion of the SVN branch with:

svn co

Doing so will create a directory called "master_iconmap" underneath the current directory. The master_iconmap directory contains a file called "", which can be used to retrieve channel icon information. See and "./master_iconmap/ --usage" for more information.
