    Smile Updated Sirius Channel Logos & Lineup

    I have created all new Sirius Channel Logos at a high resolution 242x92 instead of 170x59. All of the logos were taken from a high res channel lineup PDF that Sirius had on their site.

    Anyways these images will fit perfectly in John's DFX3.0 and 2.0 without any stretching/loss of quality...

    I have made two sets of images, one for dark/black backgrounds and another for light/white backgrounds....they are both transparent, I just had to do some modifications to some colors for them to appear properly with a black background.

    I have also updated the srcache.ini Channel Information files to exactly what Sirius has on their website now. There were a lot of incorrect and/or missing channels on the current file. It works perfectly now...and everything appears as it should...

    For Light Backgrounds: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/down...id=53&act=down

    For Dark Backgrounds: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/down...id=54&act=down

    Thank You MP3car for hosting the files!

    Just to give you guys a preview of the difference in quality here is an example. I doubt many of you listen to Reggae, but this was a good example to show the differences. I hate bad looking graphics so believe me, every single logo looks good on dark if its made for dark and good on light if it was made for light:

    Nice job on the new higher-res logos! I did the very same thing with the XM logo's some time ago, and it was a time consuming process for sure!

    You can however, make one image that will work with either a dark or a light background. As some of the XM Logo's had dark text, I put a white border (Stroke in Photoshop blending options) around the text/logo. For those that had light text, I put a dark border around them. I did this as so many skins now have transparent backgrounds, and selectable wall paper. No matter what background is used, you do not have to switch the logo's to stand out from the background.

    Here is an example of one of the logos, the same one, on both a dark and a light background. Without the black stroke around the word "Hitlist" the white text would barely be readable, as well as the yellow logo on the white.

    I can't seem to download either file... the forums say that I don't have permission. Any idea? Do I have to have a certain number of posts to be able to download files? I look forward to seeing the new logos...

    no, it has nothing to do with you....the files have been updated so they have to be re-authorized by the forum admins...

    in the mean time, you can get the files here:
