New NFL Network (212) logo showed up!
Why, yes it did.
Which receiver model do you have? Did you receive any other logos?...TCM HD (256) DESTINATION AMERICA (286) etc??
Any other channel logos show up?
That was the only one I know was missing for me.
Still no new logos on my HR24-500. Still missing NFL Network, TCM, Lifetime, E!, TruTV, We, Logo, Destination America, Disney JR, HUB. There may be others missing but that's what I see right now.
Same logos missing on my HR 22-100. Anyone know why some receivers might have these logos and others not??
The same logos are missing from my ipad app.
As posted earlier in this thread:
``New logo's arived today on my HR24-500 E!, TCM, AXS, Dest. America, Lifetime HD logos up! New Disney Junior too. Sorry if I missed any.``
Since then, NFL Network HD logo has appeared too.
Unfortunately no one has a definitive answer on that one. I would think it would be easy enough to send out the logos to all receivers at once but clearly there's some reason they don't.
Thanks. Hopefully they're sent out to all receivers soon.
I have a question:
DirecTV doesn't offer the local MNT sub-channel in my market. I noticed when flipping through the channels the other day, that sub-channels carrying MNT from two different markets did not have a logo?
Does DirecTV have a logo for MyNetworkTV in markets where DirecTV offers it in with the LiL channels?!
Frankly, I think this whole thread is much ado about nothing. As long as the channels are there, what does it matter whether they are denoted by their call letters or a logo. WRDC (channel 28) in Raleigh is MyNetworkTV, and it is carried by DirecTV in HD, but I have never noticed whether there was a logo. I will check when I get home tonight.
I come from an graphic design/advertising background myself, so branding is kind of big with me personally.
I find the logos instinctive...
Except that we almost never see them when it comes to choosing things to watch. The exception is Quick Tune. But they do not show in the guide nor in the listing of recordings. They are pretty much useless in a DirecTV environment. Fios uses them in the guide and they can be helpful but if DirecTV put them in the guide, they would be so tiny they would be of little value.
I disagree about putting them in the Guide. If one has a decent sized TV, they would be useful. Ditto for the Playlist...
However, while I rarely do it, I occasionally move through the channels, and it would be useful for those who frequently do that.
I'd rather have more data in the guide than logos. Adding logos to the guide would just add clutter.
Reminds me: Whatever happened to a widespread concern that the Info banner and Guide doesn't show the original air date? (until you hit More Info.) That'd be a time saver for many.
I'm about 50/50 there. I really don't watch Live TV enough to really care about more data in the Guide.
It's also important to note that some providers offer both logos and more data, so it's not like it would have to be an either/or proposition.
I disagree with your thought on clutter. Also, years ago, a DirecTV receiver of mine had a guide that gave you an option. Guide with logos, Guide with without logos, and Guide without PiG.
DirecTV's not real big with customization though...
I can deal either way (though missing logos for QuickTune look bad). But having them implemented less than fully looks shoddy. It's like "channels I get" -- doesn't do much for the DirecTV experience when "little things" don't work exactly right.
