    I agree, it's a bit annoying.

    I'd say most if not all of us here on these forums are on the geek side and this type of things drives us geeks crazy.

    If not, then either you are plain out crazy or liyng. :p

    Is it possible that he is confusing TMC with Fox Movie Channel, which has recently undergone a format change. Fox continues to carry the classic films without commercial interruption during the night. Midmorning, they change to more current fare, with commercial interruption. It was a shock when I discovered the change.

    Interesting...I see no update since late June. I have not rebooted recently, but still received new logos today. I'd love to know how the logo updates work for the HR24!

    Not one of those yet on my 2 HR24-500 and H24. And just noticed a few days ago NFL Network logo is gone.

    Would a restart due the trick for the missing logos to come up?

    If you're going to do a menu reset- the "Restart Receiver" one, I'd be inclined to do a second one within 30 minutes. That will flush the Guide, and may trigger a call to reload the extras.

    Nothing on my HR22-100 as of yet. Why wouldn't the new logos be downloaded to all receivers?

    Just don't freak when your To Do List is basically empty. It will have to rebuild as the guide reloads. Up to 24 hours.

    Restarted my HR22-100 twice. No logos yet. Will they possibly show up in the next few hours?? Is the HR24-500 the only receiver that has the new logos?

    As tony said, it can take some time. And it may well be that the Guide needs to get filled before it calls for logos. Kinda like a watched pot! It may be that the restart doesn't fix it either....

    Thankfully, logos don't do squat in terms of impeding recording or watching. Aesthetics, yes, but no practical interference.

    I saw the new TCM HD logo on my HR21 last night, so, for at least that one, no.

    Forgive my ignorance, the Supplemental download is a daily / weekly background download? The TV mail that pops up would be an example?

    Usually, logos pop up within an hour (usually far less), along with other HD icons.

    Guide data usually takes about 24 hours to populate, and poster art usually takes around 48 hours.

    New logos aren't in the guide data, sorry you were given incorrect information. They are in a supplemental download that, most of the time, takes place during a firmware upgrade. It looks like they've also started sending out this supplemental download by itself at random times. This download contains stuff like channel logos, updated icons for the UI, etc.

    TV Mail is something completely different. The supplemental download mostly takes place when there is a firmware upgrade but, as seen by your updated logos, can take place at any time as well. If it's not part of a firmware update I'm guessing it takes place during the usual idle time "housekeeping" on the units. If you were to see a firmware upgrade that had a supplemental download you'd see an onscreen message saying that the unit has to download "Additional software". The message gives you the option to allow the download to complete, by doing nothing, or "Watch DirecTV". If you choose "Watch DirecTV" the download takes place "later".
