I hate it when people say 'something is wrong and it does not work. Please help' So utter apologies for doing likewise.

I mean I did an icon download, some icons were downloaded (I can tell by date stamp) but when the process completes no visual indication changes.

I posted a list of .mythtv/channels that show the icons are present.
I posted a db dump showing icons allocated to a chanid.
mythweb, mythtv server and mythtv-setup->channel edit do not show icon (but do show chan number and description ie

|  2  |

Since I once did exactly this and it did work, what do I now beed to do to display icons.
