Guide: want to revert back to call signs instead of logos

Version 1.2.14: I've tried 1: unchecked "Include station logos from Schedules Direct", 2: "Clear Cache", 3: Physically emptying "logos" folder, but "Save and execute" still coughs up logos. (I'm on a new fresh OS7 install hoping to keep it alive after MS pulls the support plug)

NEVER MIND! I then tried 4: "Tweak WMC", clicked "remove' on "Remove all channel logos" and it's fixed! Love Garyan and EPG123!! Thanks!!

Yup, you found it. With the logos removed, see how you like the look of replacing the callsign with the channel name option in WMC... like the below:

Note that you will have to play with the "Channel Column Width" to see more of the channel names.

Thanks! Great idea! I liked it and I did it. Now that I've got this thing working right I'll start stalking your EPG123 forum for Windows 10 WMC (my other machine). And of course you already know most of us non techies out here require a UI which can be navigated with a mouse and buttons.(No keyboard please :D )
