In a roundabout way you have answered you own question(s).
It is just one of those things one has to think about a minute.
Keep in mind; I have no mind. That is I do not remember your details and all the variables you have been through.
Here are just some of the things to think about:
1. The Sony box has multiple levels of reset. Unplug/Plug being one of many, and it often is not consistent with the results.
2. The Sony box has 4 built in tuners.
3. The Sony box has different levels of tuner scans.
4. You mentioned the word analogue.
5. You mentioned “Cable” and that can be with or without cable card – something I know absolutely nothing about. The planet I came from is OTA only; however this station name, call letters, and logos all end up being processed in s similar fashion.
6. And we are assuming you no longer have a grid (or if you do, it has been a very long time since last host channel set)? Therefore TVGOS data for channel names et.al cannot have the last “say” for names, logos, etc.
So, there is a hierarchy to the scheme of station names, call letters, and logos. So how is that hierarchy built in regard to these stages?
1. New out of the box?
2. Sony Tuner Scan – all four tuners! – Two of those are cable (analogue and digital), and with and without cable card. The first set of station names, call letters, and/or logos. Via antenna and cable.
3. TVGOS set up, the replacement set of station names, call letters, and/or logos. Remember that replacement set is not replaced all at once; but one by one and each station is “used’ (tuned).
Now let’s throw a bomb into that hierarchy.
1. Remove TVGOS service
2. Perform various levels and types of resets. The Sony Box also has various levels of channel scans, the one that does both antenna and cable at 100% replacement (even if you don’t use both), is the most complete.
3. Stations come and go.
4. Cable companies do their thing (make changes).
Short Answer: The Hierarchy has been Bombed, it may be time to rebuild?
