Enigma2 plugin to dowload and create channels picons files form lyngsat.com

Creates Enigma2 channels picons form lyngsat.com. Downloads and resizes lyngsat-logo.com high resolution images. Simple low-res images with white background could be used too. It is possible to set bacground color/transparency. Background transparency works only if pillows python library is installed! Picons for all channels in Enigma2 lamedb are downloaded (you can subselect particular sattelites or packages via paremeters). No symlinks are created for same images.

You can run it several ways:

  1. As a Dreambox plugin (GetPicons)
  2. From Dreambox command line (/usr/script/get_picons.sh)
  3. From PC command line (use it if you want transparent background, since pillow library usually not available on enigma2)
