To quote from Elotrolado, roughly translated: Hello! I present a program that I've developed to create channel lists PS3 to our liking.
The program already has a list of channels to add, but otherwise there is an option to put our channels or web pages you want!
The only creates our file xil.xml to put directly into our PS3 (/dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil/tv/c/63431223453538546/xil.xml). Suitable for all the CFW or dongles as you only need an FTP or file manager.
The icons and the backgrounds are the same as the pack of colchonerox! I hope you find it useful!
PS: If you have any problems or want to add channels to the next version reply in the thread, thanks!

Yes all the icons are in the rco files, see the other thread I started about it, be best to talk there about this. the tool rcomage is attached there , it extracts the rco to images (if any), sounds(if any), main xml, and lang files (if any) , check the corresponding rco for your category, ie explore_category_psn.rco.
BTW: the main category icons cant be changed so easily, problem is that they are not taken from the xmb_normal.rco as you would expect, they are built into an sprx as far as i know. i suspect that the rco is just left over from old code.. from what i've seen sony were in the process of moving more and more resource files into the sprx files for extra security. Also the system category icons etc are not read from the sysconf rco like the other categories, probably to secure the otherOS block and things like that as the system settings category is so important.
I have not got to changing icons yet, but all i was going to do was save the icon I don't want to the PC, edit it, then save it back out again, knowing its kept its sizes, and attribs, but I bet theres an easer way.
With my PS3 anyway i can just use the webbrowser to go to the RTEplayer page and it works fine, im not sure if all TV streaming sites works the same on PS3 but with RTEplayer it is like icon on XMB is just a shortcut to the web page. Try out your prefered TV streaming site through web browser and save it as a bookmark if it works, almost as easy but not quite
Gotcha, I don't use PSN so I was gonna get rid of it. However, now I think I may re-purpose it into a PS3 Media Server/Center channel. Do you know how to change the icons themselves, similar to the ICON0 you would see for a game/homebrew app?
Any files missing will freeze/rsod, you could delete all the icon entries from it if you wanted but it will still show main category icon. Kakarato was asking me about same thing (removing categories) for the ps3mfw project, I couldn't help him unfortunatly.
