Channel Logos
It is now possible to assign a logo to a channel with the help of the "channellogos.ini" file. The DVBViewer first checks if an entry for a channel is found in this file. If it isn't found it tries the old method (guessing)
The format of the channellogos.ini file is quite simple:
c=[Channelname} (UTF-8 encoded)
The "c=" entry exists for an improved readability the program just ignores it
If a logo can't be found or doesn't exist it is marked with logo=-
This avoids repeating and failing the search over and over again
