The logos add professionalism to it. For me, the guide is too busy with 6 channels and a single line. If it was 4 or even 5 channels at once, double lined, with a logo, wouldn't be it easier to read?

 

Not at all, it would be more cluttered with logos.

I'd like logos in the guide. There is room for them.

The logos are unique to each channel, for the most part, and would add something unique to each line to make it easier for the eye to focus on.

 

If that is too much, why not make the blue-button guide a litte fancier and add logos on it? I much prefer that one anyway... The format of the guide online is perfect. Speaking of the online guide, it has a LOT more logos than the actual on-TV guide, nearly all of them, so Directv DOES have them ...

I totally agree with you. I know some people don't. Everyone has a different point of view. Would like to have the option in the guide to add logos or not.

Well said. I completely agree.

Just an update. This morning I received a software update on my H24/100 and HR24/200. I now get all logos on my banner except OWN HD ,ION E HD,and Bloomberg HD. Guess you have to wait for Directv to do update. I have tried resetting a couple of times did not work. Guess you have to be patient with this. Don't know, if this is pertinent but my last update was one month to date.

Still no logos for many channels on my HR22-100. Are these updates just random, by location, receiver model etc?? My last software update was 0x66d on March 8. Thanks for your update.

The logos are not in the software updates, they are a separate download that not everyone gets at the same time.

Received many new logos (HR22-100) this morning. Included were the updated Fox Sports Regional Networks. Like you, no OWN, Bloomberg or ION E HD.

On a side note was doing some channel surfing and saw I lost the logo for the Travel channel which was there this morning. Very strange.

They modified their logo and requested providers to remove the old one.

A bunch of new logos are now on the banner, including the new FSN logos (only seen on the main feeds, part-time still have the old one, if at all). Also, Fox Deportes, most of the "new" HD channels, Comedy Central, Cooking, and the east/west Univision (although there is no logo on my local Univision or the the new Univision channels  453 - 455). As mentioned earlier, it appears Travel Channel logo is gone.

I see that they update more the poster artwork in the guide for programs than the channel logos  :)

Are the logos dependent upon what receiver or software you are running?  I have an HR24-100 and H24-700, both with the 0x66d software and none of these new logos have appeared yet for me.

I have an HR34 and client. My signature is wrong, but I can't change it on the new layout for some reason.
