Solved: PVR IPTV Simple Client - no channel logos

PVR IPTV Simple Client - no channel logos
Software
XBian version: 1.0 (knockout)
XBMC/Kodi version: 16.1 Git:2016-05-28-6f8e95d
Overclock settings: none

Hardware
Device type and model: Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
SD card size and make/type: 8GB Class 10
Network: Ethernet
Connected devices: TV

Problem description:
Channel logos are not shown although they are present in the configured location.
<settings>
<setting id="epgCache" value="true" />
<setting id="epgPath" value="/home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/xmltv.xml" />
<setting id="epgPathType" value="1" />
<setting id="epgTSOverride" value="false" />
<setting id="epgTimeShift" value="0.000000" />
<setting id="epgUrl" value="http://*******.com/xmltv.xml" />
<setting id="logoBaseUrl" value="" />
<setting id="logoFromEpg" value="0" />
<setting id="logoPath" value="/home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/channel_icons/" />
<setting id="logoPathType" value="0" />
<setting id="m3uCache" value="true" />
<setting id="m3uPath" value="/home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/PVR IPTV Simple Client RPi.m3u" />
<setting id="m3uPathType" value="0" />
<setting id="m3uUrl" value="" />
<setting id="sep1" value="" />
<setting id="sep2" value="" />
<setting id="sep3" value="" />
<setting id="startNum" value="1" />
</settings>
Logos are in .png format and the same behavior is observed if tvg-logo tag is written with or without an extension in the .m3u file.

With these same settings everything works as expected in OpeneELEC (same RPi) and XBMC (Windows).

Solution or any suggestion how to troubleshoot would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Alen

Full Kodi debug logs would help.

I tried this addon few weeks ago and I had channell logos displayed. But with my config logos came from http:// and not from local disk

RE: PVR IPTV Simple Client - no channel logos
In the debug logs I'm seeing this error:

18:34:19 1477.933228 T:1771725744 DEBUG: GetImageHash - unable to stat url /home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/channel_icons/channel1.png

Any clue what could be wrong?

And yes, as you said, it works well with "http" location.

What about user rights?

did you already checked if folder channel_icons/ and file channel1.png is xbian:xbian and readable?

Yes (I have removed remaining entries from the listing):

root@raspberry ~ # ls -la /home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/
drwxr-xr-x 1 xbian xbian 140 Jul 27 19:30 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 xbian xbian 94 Jan 1 1970 ..
drw-r--r-- 1 xbian xbian 3942 Jul 27 19:30 channel_icons
root@raspberry ~ # ls -la /home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/channel_icons/
drw-r--r-- 1 xbian xbian 3942 Jul 27 19:30 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 xbian xbian 140 Jul 27 19:30 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 xbian xbian 3933 May 31 17:40 channel1.png

Another problem is that "http" location still has problems with names containing white-spaces.

RE: PVR IPTV Simple Client - no channel logos
Could you please add the x attribute to folder

chmod +x /home/xbian/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/pvr.iptvsimple/channel_icons/

Just to make sure that x attribute is not needed (for example, if x attribute is missing on samba shared folder, you can't access folder)

You are a magician! Executable bit for xbian user only did the trick.

In addition, now from local path, also the problem with white-spaces disappeared.

Thanks a lot... I really appreciate.
