Actually it is possible to set Re-fetch period (hours), when TVH downloads picons.
However if channel changes logo, we have to wait until next period occures, or we have to clean whole cache.

Please implement a small button, next to 'clean cache', that will trigger re-fetch process.

I also wonder if it shouldn't collect some checksums of downloaded picons.
You might ask why. Because if it re-fetches an image and its different, then IMHO it should save it under different name, thus allowing XBMC to download a new icon. Actually, XBMC/Kodi saves an icon in its cache and does not update it until it has different name/address.
