http://www.lyngsat-logo.com/ and, feel free to update the SVN version of 
the master_iconmap data to link to the appropriate icons so others may 
benefit from your efforts. ;)

See http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/2365 for an example (the new patch 
is post 0.20).  You can do this even if you don't run SVN.  Just do a 
checkout with:

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

Then edit data/{baseurl,callsigntonetwork,networktourl}.txt and test it 


(in the master_iconmap directory)

Then, run:

mythfilldatabase --reset-icon-map all
mythfilldatabase --import-icon-map master_iconmap.xml --update-icon-map

/as the user who runs the mythfrontend program/ from the master_iconmap 
directory to test.  (Verify all your channels have icons.  If you test 
with MythWeb, you'll have to delete MythWeb's icon cache with "rm 
/var/www/htdocs/mythtv/data/tv_icons/*" (change path as appropriate)).

And, finally, run

svn diff > ~/master_iconmap-sky.patch

from the master_iconmap directory to create a patch for Trac.
