This appears to be the section of schedule-ui.xml that deals with channel

        <buttonlist name="channels" from="basebuttonlist2">
            <statetype name="buttonitem">
                <state name="active">
                    <imagetype name="icon">
                    <statetype name="status">
                    <textarea name="channum" from="buttontext">
                    <textarea name="callsign" from="channum">
                    <textarea name="name" from="channum">
                    <textarea name="priority" from="channum">
                <state name="selected" from="active" />
                <state name="inactive" from="active" />
            <statetype name="upscrollarrow">
            <statetype name="downscrollarrow">

        <imagetype name="icon">

It looks like both times the image is called, it is set to "preserveaspect"
true. Nevertheless, it appears stretched. Have I missed something here?
