    Perhaps but I didn't talk to a "tech". Continue your cluelessness. It's quite fun.

    Today, TiVo made two changes to the logos in my lineup after reporting it earlier this year. One is the addition of the ION logo for WRBL-DT3 and the other is that they finally switched out the FOX logo on WTHL-DT 49-1 from FOX to MeTV, but the logo on WTLH-DT (Tallahassee, FL) is the same MeTV Des Moines logo that WRBL-DT3 (Columbus, GA) has, so what makes more sense?

    I'm still waiting on one other logo change.

    I have MSNBC. I think the problem is the way the plant sends the station call letters. If its off, the logo wont appear.

    For example If they add a "p" for pacific at the end, the Logo wont appear.

    I'm not worried about missing logos. I have a lot of indie stations. It's the old wrong logos that need fixing. I had COMET for a few weeks, then that was pulled by the station so they could keep their call letters in the bug. I'm just glad something has changed.

    Why is the CBS logo now blue? Is there a holiday? Maybe an election statement?

    Blue is the official color of the CBS "eye." Here it is on screen during the CBE Morning news last fall:

    It is always blue, unless presented in monochrome, where it will be black or white, depending on the background.

    Thanks. I guess that's one more logo that TiVo has corrected. I'm still waiting for MSNBC and HDNET Movies.

    CBS wasn't the only logo to go through a change.

    FOX is now gray instead of white, and both the ABC and NBC logos have changed as well in the last week or so. All three logos (and possibly CBS as well) have been reduced in size too.

    The NBC logo looks alright in the Playlist and such, but the logo looks horrible in the Guide IMO. NBC looks freaking tiny compared to other logos in my Guide. They really didn't need to reduce the size of ANY of them. There was PLENTY of room.

    I think CBS is still changing even on their own shows. Check CBS This Morning. It has a yellow logo for a few seconds, then it's covered by the new blue one. Yeah, it would be hard to make NBC any smaller.

    BBC World News HD (BBCWLDH) takes the cake for smallest logo that can't be comprehended. I don't know why they even bother having the logo there. It just looks like a tiny red square unless you put your face up to your tv. At least the NBC logo is slightly recognizable.

    Only because it's in color. Even the bird on MSNBC is larger. :) It could be worse:

    M
    S
    NBC

    That's about 15 years ago.

    Is there a place I can view Rovi's listings for my area to see how accurate they are?

    Next to Provider click on change and enter your zip code and then select your cable provider. These are going to be really out of date as Rovi stopped updating the cable listing when they shut down TVGOS in 2013.

    Another problem is Rovi sold the TVGuide website and now it is owned by CBS Corp so it will be extremely hard to get the listing updated.
