I saw reports about this a few months ago. I think it was supposed to be a test of a new screensaver. Perhaps it's now in the latest software update. When was the last update you received?

It wasn’t in any software update last time. People were getting it across 3-4 versions that were floating out there

A random string of letters is not easier to read. I had the CE version of the guide with logos for several months, first small, then larger. It was much easier to identify channels, even if you couldn't read every single logo. Most channels have distinctive, recognizable logos.

to each their own
most logos are stylizes version of the letters

Couldn’t agree more, i had the logos, and didn’t have any issues, for someone like me, who is legally blind, believe me, the guide with the logos are a lot easier for me than the string of letters. Sometime my eyes are better than other times, and if i cant read the little call letters in the guide, i could definitely see and recognize the logos. Be nice to at least have the option, like accessibility options or something.

I waas glad to see the back of the logos. They added nothing for me. Most of them are just versions of the channel callsigns anyway, and many of them are illegible. If they are channels I watch regularly, I don't need them If they are not I have to look at the callsign ayway..

Let's not forget.. when the logo was there, the callsign was there, too, so no one lost anything. So I really don't know why it's something people argue over. It was the best of both worlds. Now we just have it one way.

The screen was more cluttered, particularly on smaller screens.
