icons selection
#1
Howdy.  Okay, I searched the forum, the FAQ, and Google to try to get the best information for what "Use IPTV-EPG Icons" vs "Use icons from source where possible" options entail to try to decide what is best for my xTeve->Plex setup.  

Right now, I'm using "Use IPTV-ENG Icons."  The xTeVe information loads and has links from IPTV-ENG.com to the icon files.  However, those icons do not load into xTeVe or into Plex.

Interestingly, I followed the link to some for example which ends in a 404 error.

I'm not sure all of them are the same thing as dead links, but I'd say roughly 40-50 or so of my 400~ channels are showing blank icons from the m3u/xml import.

I just want to go the best route to resolve and have icons for most everything showing up.  No complaint for them being dead links meant by this.

Input and advice appreciated.

We talked many times before about this and it's also explained in the FAQ actually.

We add icons continuously, but it's at the bottom of our priority list.
All channels have an icon url.
Look at our channel list at the top of the page to see which channels have icons.

If you use the "use source icon if possible" will use icons from your m3u file where there is an icon.
If no icon there, then it will use the icons from our site.
If you added a custom icon url to your channel in the editor if you found one on the internet, then it will use that.

So simple Wink

Perfect. I searched FAQ topics and none matched either "Use IPTV-EPG Icons" or "Use icons from source where possible" and there were a great many topics to skim through. Apologies there.

This makes great sense to me and gives me a beer project.
