    • Picons for UK FTA TV

      Hi everyone, does anyone of a good source for picons for 28.2 East? Looking through the forum and googling, I found a file from 2016 but some picons look very dated, some are older names or different channels which no longer exist and some are missing (in particular the +1 channels).

      Thanks a lot, that's great. However, I am a bit stuck now on how to install them. The last time, I downloaded a compressed collection of picons, unpacked them and dragged them into the picon folder. However, he files on GitHub are ipk. I downloaded the top ipk file on the list manually (as I don't unserstand the differences) and dragged it into the tmp folder on my Vu+. From there, I installed it on the receiver. That seems to have been successful as the file is gone but nothing else happened. The picons have not been applied, and they are not available for installation in the picon manager add-on.

      Where do I go from here? ?(

      You can unpack the .ipk with 7zip, and unpack the “data.tar.gz” and further unpack to the “picon” directory as in the following example:
      Die .ipk kannst du mit 7zip entpacken, und die “data.tar.gz“ entpacken und weiter entpacken bis zu „picon“ Verzeichnis so wie in folgender Beispiel:
      enigma2-plugin-picons-snp-13e.19e.23e.28e.100x60-86x46.dark.on.reflection_2022-07-10--00-27-54_all.ipk\data.tar.gz\data.tar\.\picon\ ;) :)

      PS: The .ipk files can be installed normally from /temp and, after an obligatory reboot, they must appear in the “picon directory”.

      Thanks for your help. I haven't been able to install the picons. They are in the right folder but they don't show. The picon files have the names of the stations, not the usual format. Do I have to match them in some way?

      I tried to add some with DreamBoxEdit but that did not work. I will keep trying, I was a but busy this week.

      Amazing! You are a star! With the exception of Cubavision, every channel in my favourite lists have a picon. A big thank you. :thumbsup:

      To finish up, may I ask two questions: 1) What did you do to re-name the picon files? ;?: 2) Do you also know a good source for picons form 9 East?

      Here is an example from Cubavision international. Is this what you're looking for?
      Which Cubavision do you mean? Which orbital position?
