    A stupid question: I have NO USB pen drive connected and my picons in /media/usb/picon.
    As far as I see, it's not a symlink. So it seem to be in flash.
    Now, I'd like to move them into the HDD (please: don't tell me it'll be always on 'cause it is anyway and it's not a problem).
    What is the easiest way? Create a symlink in flash?

    Use Total Commander to copy picons into HDD directory which is: media/hdd/picon/
    Good luck.

    I can only say how the Path is in "normal E2 Images" i don´t know
    if in the BH Images the path for the Symlink is the same cause i see a lot places where
    Symlinks are placed in the BH Image so it´s only a suggestion
    If you have DCC Installed ? go to /usr/share/enigma2
    if there click right in the Popup choose : New Symlink
    in the next Popup add
    Target : /media/hdd/picon
    Name : picon
    than click ok thats all
    note : you also need on the /hdd a Folder called : picon
    of course with the picon´s in it

    Thanks: it worked (but I did the same from /media/usb/ where, as I wrote, there were my picons).

    No, this way I just copy the folder but I don't tell the system to use it instead of the original. But I solved as written in my previous post.

    Maybe if you check the "" in /usr/lib/enigma2/python/Components/Renderer/ you'll get the answers you need.
    This python file defines where the picons can be found.

    Hi Everyone,

    I would need a bit of help with picon locations. I would like to use entirely different
    Picons on my Solo4K's LCD and the User Interface Infobar that appears on the
    TV screen.

    I tried to modify the skin_user.xml, changed the path="picon" to "piconlcd", but
    does not have any effect. Still both the LCD and User Interface infobar takes the
    picons from /usr/share/enigma2/picon folder.

    <widget source="session.CurrentService" render="Picon" position="0,0" size="480,60" path="piconlcd">
    <convert type="ServiceName">Reference</convert>

    Can anyone suggests what else to change to have different picon sets for LCD
    and User Interface Infobar (without using LCD4Linux)?

    I was reading this old post and, this time, I wanted to have a look at the as you suggested, but at the time this post referred to BH.
    In OBH it is only in the compiled form, .pyo.

    So, two questions:
    1) may I take it from BH 309, delete the .pyo and let OBH to recompile it at start?

    2) If so, if I change this line of the code:

    for mp in ('/usr/share/enigma2/', '/', "/media/usb"):


    for mp in ('/usr/share/enigma2/', '/', "/media/usb", "/media/hdd"):

    will I get, as a result, to have the picons read even from the HDD?

    And, last but not least, I'm began changing the filenames from the format with references to the channel name format.
    Initially, I use filenames with only small letters and no spaces.
    But the I run into the first problem: Rai Sport + HD was not recognised by raisport+hd.png.
    So, even if I hadn't read this file until today, I tried by raisportplushd.png

    that seems exactly what is suggested by the line of code

    name = re.sub('[^a-z0-9]', '', name.replace('&', 'and').replace('+', 'plus').replace('*', 'star').lower())

    but it didn't work.
    So I tried to keep the file name exactly as the channel name
    "Rai Sport + HD" and it worked until yesterday when the picons were in /media/usb/picon, not today, after I moved into /media/hdd/picon

    So I renamed it

    and it worked. Also, happened, that all the file names containing spaces and even capital letters, were OK from USB but not from HDD. So I had to rename them in small letters and without spaces. Why's that?
    Would be possible to edit the file to be more "tolerant". Filenames with spaces and capital letters, that means their real names, are much easier to read through and to find by the PC O.S. when you need to.

    The code is not the same for BlackHole and Open BlackHole.
    So no, don´t do it!

    Take the file from git ( enigma 2 ). -->

    best regards
