I've set a website for Xperience1080 to generate Metro style icons, 2500+ available. This way the user can select any colour they wish and any size for the icons.

There's a section called 'Media Centre (XBMC)' which contains most of the popular icons such as BBC, 1Channel, 4oD, ABC iView, icefilms etc. I've recreated most of these logos by hand to make sure they are not distorted in any way. If you would like a logo adding please let me know below, if you can provide a 256x256 transparent PNG that would be even better.

Here are a few examples:

Thanks Smile

I'm working on adding more logos - especially ones from all the addons available. But it's hard to find a high quality version and a lot of the addons don't have logos.

Maybe we could integrate this directly into the skin in the future. So users could generate their icons from the "custom home item" dialog.

That's there as well, or it should be Tongue

Here's another example of customization you can achieve, we'll take the XBMC logo as an example. I've chosen entirely random colours and combinations.

How does it work to contribute new icons?
A search option would be very useful...

Great work!

Great work!

If you want new icons adding you just need to let me know. I want only high quality icons on there so won't allow user uploads unless it's on here first and I can see the icon/edit it before it goes to the site.

And the search function is coming, just not yet Tongue

is there an easy way to take icons from this site and convert them to xperience1080 style?

Total XBMC spend so far: £76
Rpi (£24) + Pogoplug V2 (£15) + HD Star DVB-S2 (£29) + GPIO Ir (£3) + NOOBS 8GB SD (£5) = Cheap Media Center
