Logos for the new 8 HD additions are now missing except IDHD. Hopefully, they update them to the HD Logos soon.

A Guide flush might trigger the d/l of the logo package. Two menu restarts within 30 minutes will flush the Guide, so do this perhaps at lights out time.

I've read about this but some have said that the logos are not included in the guide data. I really have no idea but it would hurt I guess...

No, you're right they are not IN the Guide data. However, signaling for new Guide (what the flush will do), that may create a push of the package with the logos.

I too have noticed missing logos. They will be there during the day and when I come home from work at night they will be gone. It's different channel logos on differnt model receivers. It's not a big deal but it does make the channel banner look nicer. I PM Satelliteracer about this but maybe Satelliteracer can also comment on this thread.

Where are these logos and what do they do? I do not know if I have them or not.

When I want to know what is on, I press the "Guide" button and scroll through the channels to see if there is a program that interests me. I do not see any logos. When I want to tune to a specific channel from the guide, I press the "OK" buttom. If I want to switch channels while watching a different channel, I punch the numbers for the new channel and I go to that channel. If I want information about the show that is being shown, I press the "Info" button and read what is in the banner. If I want more information, I press the "OK" button while the "Info" banner is showing.

What is contained in the logo that is not conveyed by the letters that identify the channel on the right of the guide bar? What am I missing by not doing something that requires logos?

You will see the logo in the info banner when you change channels or hit info. Also in quicktune. Pretty much, that's it. And that is why it amazes me that the logos or absence of them causes such a stir.

Agree. SR, maybe you could comment on why the logos have disappeared? Hopefully they return soon.

VH1 and Logo recently changed their logos. Food Network modified their logo this year. I'm not sure why Reelz is gone, maybe they gave them a better logo to use.

As for the new batch of HD channels, they're likely getting HD specific logos whenever the next update comes.

Here's a tip, if the Android app doesn't have a logo, flushing the EPG will not bring them back. (I can't confirm if the iOS app is the same since the only iOS device I have is the iPod Touch 2G which was abandoned by most developers)

Actually all my logos were missing. Noticed it when I hit Quicktune one day last week. Downloaded the weekly CE this past Friday and still no logos by Monday. So, I reset twice within 30 minutes and then yesterday, logos in Quicktune were back.

Didn't check them all, but many logos have disappeared. Why is this? Will they return with the same logos or new logos anytime soon? Also, still no new logos for the recent 8 HD additions, plus still missing Food Network and Comedy Central.

Some people have triggered logos downloading by flushing the Guide entirely. That's achieved by two Menu restarts within 30 minutes. Suggest you do it just before turning in, as it takes time for the Guide to repopulate, and further time for logos to appear.

Good luck!

I think the logos me be independent of software downloads since I've seen new one's show up in the past without getting a download.

Well, yes, they are independent, and new ones will show up on their own, but when major portions of logos are missing, the Guide redownload seems to throw a tickle file out to send new logos.... According to others. I have never had a "logo problem".

Yes, they are independent. They come in a "supplimental download" at random times on random receivers.

It's nice to finally have the MAX channels updated! My list is basically the same as yours, TWCSN (691) & BeIn (620) were other additions... Quite a few of the older FSN logos still there. I also noticed SD CBS logo is new.
