Is there a way to reduce the size of a channels screen icon.

I recently upgraded my service to include a lot more channels. But, some of the channels have rather large and distracting icons on the lower right hand side of the screen. I also just bought a new plasma TV, and am concerned that these large icons might burn in permanently. The main offender is the Discover America channel. Any ideas?

The channels put them there not DTV and there is no way to control them all you can do is email them to voice you concerns.

Well then, I guess I will just have to make it my mission to get the message across to these offenders that it is not OK to have any icons on the viewing area of my TV!
