I have never had channel icons until last week when I saw some posts here that 
recommended downloading a master_iconmap.xml file and running these two 

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


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

Once mythfilldatabase made its scheduled run, I started getting icons.  
Unfortunately, not all of my channels got an icon.  I then went to the 
Lyngsat website, found urls for all my missing icons, and updated the 
master_iconmap.xml file appropriately.  After running the above two commands 
again, I now have icons on every channel.  The point of this post is to offer 
up my updated master_iconmap.xml file so that the channels that I added can 
be used by the rest of the mythtv community.  Who or where should I send the 
file to?  If it is relevant, I use starchoice satellite in eastern canada.
