I don't understand what you are doing. The icons are stored in 
.mythtv/channels on the backend. They are  retrieved by using a url like 
this "http://backend:6544/Guide/GetChannelIcon?ChanId=10002". The 
browser may cache them. The response headers show the file date and time 
so the browser should not use a cached version if the file date is newer 
than the cached version. If you are seeing old cached icons you could 
try using touch to update the file date, e.g. "touch *.png" in the 
channel directory, or clear the browser cache.
