Thank you very much for those logos.

Currently I am using the anthra-HD skin and wanted your logos to blend 
in. Therefore I wrote a little skript to create them. All that is 
required is convert from the ImageMagick package and of course git 
to check out the logos.


Simply download the tgz from here:
https://ilpss8.dyndns.org/~andrew/convert-to-liquid-logo.tgz

Unpack the archive into your working directory and run:
convert-images/convert-to-liquid-logo.sh

The logos can then be found inside the directory liquid-logos4anthra_HD.

Enjoy!
 André

Excellent! Thank you for writing this script. I'll test them tonight
with anthra.

One question, did ImageMagick work successfully for you when resizing
the svg images? I had problems where it would seemingly render a
bitmap at the default dpi of the svg and then do a lossy resize of
that to the new dimensions. Ideally I'd want it to do a lossless
resize of the svg first, before rendering the png.

Best regards,
Dom

The paramter -density 1000 did the trick for me.
So if you do convert -density 1000 BBC\ One.svg BBC\ One.png the image 
is scaled smoothly to 375x277.

 Excellent work, there's always lots of German logos for VDR, but very
 little for UK users.

Thanks :-)

 Ideally these could be used to build a decent set of images for use
 with VDR (e.g., PearlHD skin), EPG (yaepghd?) and web interface
 (live).


 Do they just need converting to XPM, PNG or something similar? How can
 we do this?

 It would be great to convert them so that we can now use them in VDR.

Yep. It is trivial to convert them to PNG or XPM, but the different
skins and interfaces all seem to have different requirements in terms
of pixel size and aspect ratio (e.g., 1:1 square crop vs free-form).
I'll be looking into it shortly.

[vdr] UK Channel Logos

2011-04-21 Thread Dominic Evans
I spent some time earlier in Illustrator, sourcing vector images of
various UK channel logos from promotional PDFs issued by Freeview,
Freesat and Sky and dumped them into individual SVG files for each
channel.

I've placed them here for now: https://github.com/oldmanuk/uk-channel-logos

Ideally these could be used to build a decent set of images for use
with VDR (e.g., PearlHD skin), EPG (yaepghd?) and web interface
(live).

If anyone has any missing channel logos in vector form that they'd
like to contribute, feel free.

Cheers,
Dom
