That guide is old. Current XMLTV and MythTV handle the icon
downloading for your automatically. You need to check that your
channels have valid XMLTVIDs attached to them, and your video source
file (something.xmltv) has your channels contained in it.

(And, obviously, that all the DVB channels were scanned successfully
and are in the database in the first place.)
