    Silly question but what the heck, I'll ask it anyway.

    A few days ago, I noticed tbs has changed their on-air look. It also seems that they've dropped the HD from their on-air logo; TNT appears to have done the same. Flipping around, I noticed Cartoon Network (also owned by Time Warner)'s on-air logo still has HD attached.

    Is this the case for everyone else? I have DIRECTV.

    From what I have heard a lot of networks are going to start doing this because they are basically dropping their separate SD feeds and using their HD feed in a letterbox format as their SD feed and as a result they dont want the HD logo on the SD feed.

    Sounds good to me. The less text on the screen the better. I wish there were no text or logos on screen. Some channels go overboard and make their programming unwatchable.

    Come on -- TBS doesn't lowercase their name in their own press releases. The presentation of a logo is not an indication of how something should be written in plain text.

    Didn't notice my own typo until you quoted it. :)

    Is there some reason why TBS has resisted letterboxing for so long? Just about every other cable channel does it.
