I'm not sure how it works on SkyQ, presumably the same, but to replace the logo on Sky+HD requires an entire new software update, its obviously not a priority thing otherwise it would have been changed by now I'd have thought.

Presumably Sky+HD is now effectively relegated to playing second fiddle to SkyQ, much like the older Sky boxes play second fiddle to Sky+HD in the update stakes. Any updates they get are just to keep them working when Sky change the configuration of things behind the scenes. I suppose in an ideal world they'd just want to force everybody onto SkyQ come what may which would save them the bother of supporting the legacy boxes but obviously that runs the risk of pushing the churn rate through the roof and also it'd be quite an expensive operation what with the boxes and the new LNBs needed.

It was due to be on SS Mix I think but seems to have been replaced by the darts.

Notice on Saturday due to Action showing live boxing that they're showing the Super League Grand Final and Grand Prix Final on both Arena and Main Event, with coverage of the Super League Final ending half an hour earlier on Main Event than it does on Action. SS Mix also broadcasts the darts, again beginning half an hour earlier than the Arena channel.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

They changed it on Q already so yeah probably not a high priority

Does it really require a software update to update the logo? I’m pretty sure they changed the logo of Channel 5’s catch up service from Demand 5 to just “Channel 5” during the day. They didn’t even update the description which still refers to 5 STAR as 5*.

On Demand is an entirely different thing, the rebrand to ITV Hub from ITV Player happened overnight with no software update. It's more dynamic, otherwise you'd have to have a new update for every new launch of a service in the Catch Up section. The main Sky logo that floats about at the top of the screen seems to need a software update to change its position (it used to be on the left when they had the nifty icon carousel arrangement) so presumably it's not just a case of squirting a new file down the satellite for it and an update would be needed to change it.
