 Yeah that's basically what I was thinking.  A Plain text format with 
something like

"TEXT" = filename(or URL)

 Where TEXT could be a callsign or a full station name.

  For example :

"WSET" = file1.jpg
"WSET 13 CityName" = file1.jpg
"ATV" = file2.jpg
"ATV Halifax" = http://www.blah.com/logos/file3.jpg

 I'm not very familiar with Python but are the matches done on the filename, 
the station name  or both?  I've had many incidents where I didn't get a fuzzy
match but where the callsign I was matching against should have easily matched
either and they aren't found. And yeah I've updated the lyngsat_page_count value
as well as the country code.

For example I'm setting up a box for my uncle which will have a channel 
with the callsign WSET  which would match both the file name 
"http://www.lyngsat-logo.com/logo/tv/ww/wset_abc13_lynchburg.jpg" and the 
station name "WSET 13 Lynchburg" but doesn't find eityher.

 Can't say I've seen any complaints about small attachments of small scripts or
patches.  Larger stuff should of course be put up on a webserver with
a link to it.
