Anyone who has used the Guide in Windows Media Center knows that the list of channels isn’t exciting! But wait, there is a plugin called My Channel Logos that adds very pretty logos for you.
Here is how the developer describes it:
For those of you who have been waiting (and waiting and waiting) to insert channel logos into the Windows Media Center guide, the wait is finally over. Now available is an application that pulls up your channel listings, and automatically adds logos for those listings. In just a minute, I went from a guide with all text to a guide with over 350 beautiful logos.
You can download it from here – and please remember to click on the Donation button to show your gratitude – it’s only $3.
This only works with Windows 7 Media Center – and you can choose between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
Installing the plugin was very simple – and then all I had to do was run it so that it would pull down all the logos for me.
I then chose to Auto-populate the logos (you can of course do them manually if you so wish).
Now firing up Windows Media Center and accessing the guide displays the the lovely logos:
This is a fantastic plugin and it is simple to install and configure – frankly it is a must have!
And well worth the $3!
