Had a wee look through channelselection.xml and I found this wee bit

    <!-- picon -->
        <ePixmap pixmap="mybackgrounds/tv-picon-bg-25.png" position="1018,197" size="100,60" alphatest="blend" transparent="1" zPosition="1" />
        <widget source="Service" render="Picon" position="1018,197" size="100,60" alphatest="blend" transparent="1" zPosition="2">
            <convert type="ServiceName">Reference</convert>

The first bit is the background and the second is the picon itself
If you make it bigger you will need to move it about a bit

So the 1018 is the amount of pixels from left to right
The 197 is the distance top to bottom in pixels

Backup first and have a play around

are you sure it isnt this line?
MultiContentEntryPixmapAlphaBlend(pos=(310, 5), size=(100, 60), png=6, flags = BT_SCALE) # picon

probably both will need editing

had a flaff with this last night changed both parts in the channel xml file still no change so think there must be another part that needs edited as well

Any ideas what else needs amended
