I'm using tv_grab_sd_json (in the UK) and my experience is mixed.

I don't like some of the icons supplied by SD, since they are drawn on transparent backgrounds and 
can be difficult to read against the mythweb background.

A problem which might be specific to the UK is that there appears to be only one BBC Radio icon. 
Thus, I have eight radio channels with the same icon. There are no local BBC Radio icons at all.

For Lyngsat, all the icons were correct and useable.
