I am not experiencing any issue wherein preserveaspect does not behave as
expected.  When set to true, aspect is preserved.  When set to false or left
defaault, it is not.  Tested, confirmed, then tested and confirmed again.
You just have to toggle it in the correct spot.  You are not looking in the
correct spot.

Once again, you are looking at the wrong buttonlist, and the word icon most
definitely *does* appear elsewhere.  I think you may not understand what is
going on in the themes.  Again, "channellist" is the buttonlist which
governs where, whether, and how the EPG channel icons will appear.  I
promise.  You are looking at the right file, but the wrong window and wrong
