If you mean the launch icon in the task bar, you can change its icon. But of course, I don't know if there is a nice icon for your panel. But you can download one from the internet, or create it.

If it's an applet, then it's more complicated, I don't know how to change it

He - sorry my first post was way to short to explain it in detail.

I was talking about the panel item - based on the setting:
"show a status" icon in the notification area"

Currently this icon is a blue/grey-ish television icon which conflicts with the mono-style in ubuntu.
So more or less a eye-candy gui thing ;)

Ok, so unfortunately it's the second case. So what you can do is maybe post a request to the developers of me-tv to explain your integration problem. Hard to say if they will consider this as a priority, but that's worth trying, that's the best way to make software improve.

@7eis:
Thanks - should do the trick for me.

@Me-Tv Developers:
is there any plan to make that icon customizable for users without replacing files in /usr/share?

Hi...

Just remember that any future updates will overwrite your custom images so
keep copies just in case ;-)

yes - i'm aware of that problem but thanks for the reminder.
that's why i am still looking for a real solution which could replace the fix mentioned above ;)
