119w ago - I bring you the second version of PS3 Channels Creator 2.0 homebrew application today.
PCC is a windows program used to create lists of channels for our PS3. These channels are like shortcuts to Web sites, you do not need to be web video.
Download: PS3 Channels Creator 2.0
Now you can choose the icons you want (even add icons added)
Works in all regions
You can choose the name of the folder containing the xil.xml (Not all consoles have the same name)
Different languages (English, Spanish and Catalonian)
You can choose the order of channels
All times are displayed in the channel list
As the big news about the first version is that you can change the icons of presentation. The icons have to take some measures and be 320x176 PNG. You can also use icons from other icons packs. Icons do not need to be hosted on external servers are stored on your PS3.
The first menu you can choose the name of the folder that contains the XIL.XML. To find out you only have to look (for ftp or file manager) the name of the folder that is located in "/ dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil/tv/ctmp /". With this program you ride perfect for all folders that you just have to upload the folder xil.
Sorry for my bad english!!

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.
