Not sure if you still have this problem Steve, but I just solved it on my
system. I found a thread titled: "Channel icons not shown" and a suggestion
to put the image files for the channel icons in ~/.mythtv/channels and
change the "channel icon pointers" to have no path in mythtv-setup. I just
did this and it doesn't report these errors any more.
