Icon for Cowboy Classics Channel

I've been playing with the external control guide, and I really like the new feature added in 2.8 that allows for retrieval of application icons. However, I'm running into an interesting problem that's driving me nuts.

I can not successfully retrieve the icon for Cowboy Classics. When I make the following GET request:
http://192.168.1.6:8060/query/icon/1521

I keep getting a 404 HTTP response, as if the channel didn't exist on my box. Querying for other application icons results in a PNG or JPEG image being returned, as expected.

Here is the result of a "http://192.168.1.6:8060/query/apps" query to my Roku box:

</apps>

So, as you can see, 1521 is the correct appID of Cowboy Classics and it is a valid channel on my box.

I've tested this on two different Roku boxes, both the XD|S model.

Anyone else experiencing this with Cowboy Classics? Or with any other channel?

I tried it myself and Cowboy Classics doesn't come up for me either. Thing is, it has the same code base as Drive-In Classics and Moonlight Movies, and those work. It's probably something Roku is going to have to answer.

Yes, I was hoping to hear from Roku.

I doubt the code base has anything to do with it - it seems to me only a characteristic of the graphic could cause such a glitch.
