    I don't think I have ever lost signal due to heavy cloud cover. It must be orange/red on the radar for me to lose signal.

    But in keeping with your theory, If you can only watch/record 1-3 streams of HD and are limited by the number of TV locations you can have, it's UVerse.

    There is always a potential that a channel will be lost in a negotiation.

    Assuming that every channel on Uverse will be on DIRECTV and every channel on DIRECTV will be on UVerse is probably short sighted. Just ask Pac-12 fans. :)

    That issue also relies on if those channels even have the streaming rights to all their content. There's a reason why Sling TV has alternate feeds of A&E and Lifetime where certain shows are replaced with alternate programming. Even the live streams from the networks have alternate programming, like when NBC aired It's A Wonderful Life a few weeks ago, the online streams for their O&O stations had SVU and Chicago PD reruns.

    The networks are slowly working on those 3rd party streaming rights as they come up for renewal, like when WatchESPN first launched they had to blur the video anytime MLB footage aired on SportsCenter, WatchABC didn't initially have any rights to WB produced shows, and up until about a year ago the NBCU channels had to blackout WWE pogramming on their live streams.

    I guess the logo is taking awhile to get to all the boxes? Not showing on mine.

    Probably when the box get's reset. When I reset mine, the death star took the cyclone's place.

    Yes, mine showed up after a reset.

    And I just noticed that on my Bookmarks dropdown in Chrome, the logo on the bookmark for DirecTV has been changed to the Death Star.

    Don't try to update it - just enjoy it on there while you can. The D ("cyclone") is a treasure and it must be cherished. My D changed to the AT&T Death Star after all the guide pictures (logos, show art, banners) suddenly went away on their own. A couple hours later, all the pictures were back and the AT&T death star is there.

    I noticed that on the Sports Search, it is still the D.

    I would like to see them try to change the D logo on the front of my HR44.

    No amount of rebooting is going to get you the new icons. They are sent, along with logos, in a "Supplemental download" and will just show up once you have them.

    I don't think they could do that. I am not sure how they project the DTV logo on the front of the box? Does it use a chip to send a beam of light to the front of the box? If so could that chip be reprogrammed to show the AT&T globe?

    Since the D shape is there when the power is off, I am assuming that it's lighting up a cut-in graphic.
