PS3 Channels Creator v2.0 Homebrew App with Selectable Icons

Sponsored Links
215w 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!!

If you cannot see any icon under your TV category, then the problem is likely to be (as 1nevermind said): 1) broken tags, or 2) your country is different from what is supported in XML - check 1nevermind post about the country tags.

It worked for me, most country tags were "ES", so in Korea I couldn't watch those TVs. After changing the tags to KR, it worked fine. However, I broke few times the tags, so I had to try because it didn't show up.

You can actualy mix XML from chanel creator with the default one, that gives you all available TVs. Unfortunately some of them are really checking your IP, so for example National Geographic will show up in Spanish, but will never play with error that it's supported only in Spain.

Not sure what you mean as the english.xml is only for the text labels, it doesn't have any code so deleting that will just make the title dissapear, also deleting the icon wil just make an empty space appear in xmb . when you say sysconfig.rco which rco do you mean?

Tv text label only has to be changed in one rco, we did same for network category to change it to Haxxx

Haven't had a chance to look at proDG, Ive been busy with trying to compile a 3.56 spoofing payload for ACID so it can get on sp-int network,and also been trying to make a pkg payload that works on vsh.self from debug I have all the offsets and the souce modded not easy getting hermes code to compile. Wrecking my head.

Anyone any good at compiling pkgs ? Here is the modded source that I think will work as a pkg payload on a retail/debug 3.41 hybrid ive been working on.

This hybrid has some nice features, its seperate to acid CFW and doesnt have the haxxx category, it just has debug settings , 20 pkg files built into dev_flash and the install path added so all latest payload pkgs/emulators/BM/utilities are ready for install after installing pup, its also got 100 custom user avatars built into dev_flash. plus its using nasplugin from hermes 3.41 CFW, and lv1 2 patches from same.

I'm pretty sure that you can remove catergoreys when I was editing my cfw and was changing tv to apps, I didnt have tv in all of the explorer .rco files so if you remove the lines in the sysconfig.rco and edit the english.xml there is lines that show all the xmb catergoreys, take out the catergorey you dont want, probably have to edit all english.xml in all the .rco from the dev_flash/vsh/explorer/

there are a few once you take out the catergory in english.xml with rco mage editor you should be able to put those edited rco files back on ps3 to remove a catergory.

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

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.
