I called to inquire about the benefits of upgrading my TV service to Quantum Enhanced. I was told about the benefits of being able to recored more shows at a time and being able to fast forward and rewind live TV. But I was not informed that I would be losing my Pandora Widget.
Sadly I only learned that after I had already upgraded. It would have been nice to know that I would lose Pandora when I was inquiring about the upgrade. Now I'm left wondering what else will I discover that I've lost.
1) The longer I watch Hallmark Channel 240, the more the audio becomes out of sync with the video. It only seems to happen on this channel.
2) Could you add a way to browse through the premium channel VODs by the year the movie was made? I like to see what newer movies have been added to the lineup, but I have to go through all of them to see what year they were made. Also the sorting by category is out of whack on at least Cinemax and Showtime. There are horror movies listed under comedies.
I have been a customer with verizon wireless for many years. I recently signed up with verizon fios television and internet. It's inconvenient to have two different online accounts for each of these services. I wish I would have been able to add on the residential services with my wireless account and combine them into one bill.
Verizon offers, by default, the many guide views (Favorites, Subscribed, All, HD Only, etc), however, there is one view I would really like to see: HD Mixed. It's great seeing the channels I get in HD, however, I'd like to also see the channels that I only get in SD (so exclude the channels that would "automatically" be switched to their HD version if I clicked on them). So, I could have a guide showing all of my subscribed channels, at their maximum resolution. So instead of:
Now that the channel guide has been updated, the bottom frame advertises on-demand movies. We find many of these ads inappropriate - as we don't want to see erotic or demonic movie ads - especially considering the kids. We would like control over what we watch - including what is featured on this channel guide. This should be appropriate for the whole family.
Verison, plese, please bring back the size function on the remote (# button)!!! It made watching standard definition tv so much better. now we get either black bars or a wide stretched screen that makes everything look too wide.
If the system is good enough to record from 10 TVs at once, why can't it store the TV id with the show and when a user wants to display recorded shows he has the option of choosing the TV id and only gets the shows that were recorded by that particular TV. Putting all recorded shows into one big bucket meams the user has to look at all recorded shows and try to find his own.
I currently have FIOS with multi-room DVR and it works great. Thanks
The channel listing for my area is over a year out of date. If you're going to continue to provide a link to a pdf users can download, please update it more often and/or provide information as to when it will be updated. Thanks!
Esata was supported on my old Motorola 7232 DVR and by enabling an external drive, I had over 200hrs of HD recording possible. With all of the wonderful TV channels and programming available, it was required so that I could record several entire series so that I would have something to watch over the summer.Now with the VMS1100, I only have 150 hours of HD recording. With 5 people in the house, there just isn't enough. I only have about 5 hours of TV time for me per week, can't really justify more than that, and we record about 20. Even with us deleting the things we watch, there is not enough storage for the other series that I save for the summer. And it'stotally unfair for Verizon to require that I pay another $10/month just to get 200 hours. Like I said before, I had over 200 - actually about 375 hours because I was using a 2TB external drive.
Show up for a repair appointment or at least call if/when you are going to be late. I waited 4 hours for the tech to show, as my appt was between 8 and 12. No tech, no call. I call Customer Service and do I actually talk to a human being, NO! The recording asks if I can wait a bit longer .. at least an hour so I waited ... 2 hours .. no call, no tech. Comcast service itself was not great but at least when I called I could talk to a human.
WHY...would you create a nearly perfect device and not make it expandable? I'd literally get two of the devices Monday (the service has been offered to me), but doing so would reduce my current recording capacity, which is now augmented by an eSATA 3TB drive.
Are there plans to activate the eSATA port(s)? If so, when? I'd consider going a couple months without it, but in the long-term, what's the point to having TWELVE tuners, but diminished storage capabilities. I just don't get who would have made such a decision. It makes absolutely no sense to offer such an advanced device and then cripple it for the folks who would be your target audience.
I, for one, will stick with my two tuner DVR that allows me to set and manage my storage needs. Such a shame.
Please extend FIOS to Apple Pie Meadows, off of Apple Pie Ridge Road, Frederick County, VA. FIOS terminates at this time less than 1-mile in either direction of the community. Thank you! Humbly and respectfully.
There needs to be an option to increase the text or font size on the tv channel guide. We can barely read it on our 55" tv, not to mention our 36"... Our vision is good, so I'm sure people with challenged vision would appreciate being able to adjust the text size.
