What looks really odd is when the logo is missing and the larger channel name covers the smaller name and the channel number.
That's addressed in the 0x66D update which is still on a staggered release. In that update it goes back to the previous method of truncating the call sign with ... if it's too long to fit in the section.
One thing to keep in mind is if the channel itself doesn't give DirecTV a logo then DirecTV has no logo to provide to us.
Exactly, there's also cases where the logo recently changed and the station requested that providers remove the old logo until a new one can be provided.
As of the ones that are missing with the latest update (and by missing truely missing with just the call signs, the ones with the DirecTV logo are usually the channels paying DirecTV to be on the lineup and I'm not counting stations that were added after the latest update started trickling out):
Local CBS - There's a new CBS logo with an updated text style, it's on CBS East, but it seems they still need to push it to the individual local affiliates
TV Guide Network - It had a pending rename to TVGN on March 18th, however the recent last minute sale to CBS delayed, if not cancelled, the planned rebrand since CBS is planning to do an entire overhaul.
Ion East - recently modified their logo
MLS Direct Kick - They got a new logo this season, the update came out right before the season started
UEFA/Rugby/La Liga/etc - These are part time channels that pick up raw stadium feeds of games, it's not exactly a channel that has a logo as one game it could be carrying Fox Sports Australia, the next game could be from Sky Sports, BBC or some South African broadcaster.
Cricket Ticket - Not even sure why this is still in the EPG, they haven't had games on the 400s range in years and it isn't even offered anymore, when it was the actual games were in the 2000s and required a world direct dish pointed at 95.
Adult Channels - Not sure about this one, some of them were semi-recent rebrands and are likely not on the top of the list to update.
Fox College Sports Alternates - They're just part time feeds of FCS Atlantic, Central and Pacific, since neither one of them is dedicated to a single feed, they don't really have a usuable logo as the ones provided by Fox are branded for the regions.
NY Alternates - Same as above, the feeds aren't dedicated to MSG2 or MSG+ 2, they just use whatever one is available that night.
SNY - Not fully sure on this one, it could be due to the whole NBC Universal/Comcast merger, the old Comcast affiliate site that used to cover SNY is gone and the new one that merged with the NBC Universal affiliate site is useless when it comes to Comcast SportsNet and is missing logos for most of their channels. (Their CSN gateway map still lists mtn) It could also be the dark blue color SNY uses which isn't really good for a dark background.
Fox Sports Pluses: As of now Fox just released logos for the main channels, they haven't released any usuable logos for the alternates (not like DirecTV carried alternate specific logs anyway). And since Fox Sports no longer has seperate feeds, they don't have HD specific logos anymore. (For most of Fox's sports and entertainment channels only the HD feed is distributed and is downconverted at the headend for SD subscribers)
