Right now Fox Sports 2 in the NJ region is channel 198 while FXX is next to Fox Sports 1 at channel 84. Please switch them so all of the sports channels can be next to each other. That would also give Fox Sports 2 the HD channel (584) that FXX currently occupies.
With the new software upgrade to STB. I now have a very annoying BRIGHT RED ad banner on the bottom of my guide. How do i remove it?
I have Interactive TV --> Disabled. I sure hope there is a setting to disable the the ad. I know what services I have and don't need Verizon advertising for the Internet speed upgrade which I already have! This is beyond exceptable and I may consider dropping my service if the bombardment of ads continues (especailly ads for services I already have!)
- Allow editing the names of DVR recorded programs. It will be usefukl when series is recorded
- Allow rewind live TV to all boxes
- When Record is pressed, allow option to start recording from that point onwards instread of recording from when the channel is tuned in. This is very useful to copy a special monent while watching long program
I'd like to see Episode Titles shown in the Scheduled Recordings list in the DVR. Currently, when I select an upcoming recording, I can see the Series name, the original air date, duration (although that actually shows the recording time and not the duration), scheduled date, and an episode summary. In order to see the episode title, I have to further select "Program Information". I would prefer to see the episode title displayed on the first screen so I wouldn't have to navigate to the additional Program Information screen.
As an added bonus, the season/episode number (e.g., S2E10) would be really great to see, also,
We've noticed that many programs surprisingly do not even have Title Descriptions, far less things like Program Numbers and Genre Categories. Please include as much information about the programs as possible. Things like Titles, Episode Numbers, Season Numbers, Air Dates and Genre Categories should all be standard requirements for producing programs to be aired. It helps both viewers and producers when viewers are better able to identify programs they enjoy, as well as parents and educators identify programs that are either inappropriate or maybe somehow miss the mark.
I've been using FIOS servicves for well over a decade, and up until recently have been really happy with you.. But the fact is that it is insanely idiotic, stupid, ironic and perhaps ludicrous that you have a "Mobile App" actually called the FiOS Mobile app, which ONLY WORKS when connected to the FiOS Router!! The one place you don't need a mobile app is the ONLY place you can use it..
I mean if that's your logic, I may as well call XFINITY or DISH.. Much as I truly hate to say it, their DVR service and Mobile apps excel where you guys #FAIL Record more than 2 shows, watch shows or DVR anywhere etc..
Further, I think the My FiOS app used to have the TV Listings and DVR Control but now it doesn't (hmm the app that lets you pay Verizon works anywhere.. the app that makes Verizon no money? only usable on a FiOS WiFi network..
Shame on you Verizon!!!
When you introduced FTTP you promised us the future.. Yet it's the traditional Cable or Satellite companies who are excelling and giving customers what FiOS should already have!! I pay a fortune (just for Data & TV service) yet really not seeing where all my $$ is going..
Please go back to listing TV series episodes by their Season and Episode number ex: S 2 E08 like before. I do not care nor do I know what the titles are of shows that I did not watch. This has happened on both free and premium listings.
To the developers. Please remove the "Push Technology" from the viewer guide. When a user selects the TV guide, we are subjected to unwanted advertisement for "On Demand Now" specials, or to sign up for high speed internet. Very annoying addition to the latest software release. I already pay a substantial amount of money each month for your service. This type of "Push Technology" will not make me spend more. If this type of marketing continues, I'll go back to antenna TV with Red Box movie rentals. Truly annoying. Just read all the post on the Verizon forums about this subject. You need to have a switch to turn it off. Nice try to the new guy but you've failed as far as I'm concerned.
As the system works right now, we are able to set a recording while navigating the guide and have the helpful confilct notification pop-up to allow us to cancel something already scheduled if desired.
However, if you want to start or end the recording time early (to allow for a program overrun as with sports or due to the timing of the guide being a bit off) or late you have to set the recording and then go into "Scheduled Recordings" in the DVR menu and scroll to the recording and set early start/late stops from there. It would be a lot easier if we were able to do this when setting the recording from the guide.
It's nice that you're trying to make improvements but please can you put the TV program guide back to the way it was. With this new version the guide no longer fills the TV screen so there is less information on screen. There also used to be a progress bar at the top to let you see how far into or how much is left of a program. That was a nice feature. If it's possible, please but those things back. Thank you.
Seriously, MORE ads?? This morning I get up, flip on the TV, and find an ad for "disney movies" at the bottom of my guide screen. The ad font is LARGER than the guide font! Come on, really? If I want to watch movies, I know where to find them. Please remove that ad.
