Since the change to Weatherbug to The Weather Channel default widget, TWC is not automatically picking up the customers location for the extended forecast. Its been a few weeks, I thought this would be fixed by now. It worked fine with Weatherbug. The initial screen on widgets does show the customers town, but NOT the extended forecast, comes up as Dallas TX. Further, you can go in and "edit location" but does not stick.
Also, under the SD OVERIDE, it would be nice if ZOOM was added along with Stretch. many people would prefer ZOOM (3X's hitting # (size) button) as default on all SD channels.
Why does resume not work on-demand after it stops? This continues on as a problem. People have to FF all the way through from the beginning.
Would be nice if eventually the DVR can hold folders for users, eg, my wifes whows go in her folder, the kids in theirs, I would get my own folder. The list used for EVERYONE gets so long.
Up until near the end of April, the scoreboard on the baseball widget listed the days in reverse order. If you wanted to see the score from two days prior, you only needed to scroll through two days worth of scores. Somewhere around April 24, the scores began to be listed in calendar order. If, on May 1, you want to check a score from April 30, you will have to scroll through every day since the beginning of the season. Why can't the scores be kept in reverse order throughout the season? Most people will be looking for a fairly recent game, not the first few games of the season. I hope the reverse-order scoreboard can be reinstated even for the remainder of this year. Thanks.
Internet streaming is the latest way for non traditional competitive events, and specifically console and computer gaming, to be distributed to the masses. TwitchTV is the premier streaming community online. A TwitchTV widget would allow customers to be able to watch live professional gaming tournaments on the television without the need to hook their television to a computer.
I was on the phone with a friend talking about a TV show that I recorded and she had not. The idea of emailing her the show to her play list came to mind. If we are both FIOS Internet and FIOS TV customers, then using an email widget from the TV screen or an option on my playlist, I would like to send the show to a friends play list to watch. List of contacts from selected email account will need to be available to select sender. Now on Receivers end, she would have to accept the show option with sender name, name of show and description for it to download to her list. This accept option is not for Pay Per View shows or content on channels not available to the receiving system, without a fee. If the customer has the channel then the cost is free. Example, we both have HBO, we can send movies to each other but if only the sender has HBO, the person accepting does not have the channel then she pays a one-time fee, if legal otherwise the send is denied with channel not available to sender message. If the person accepting the show, does not have space on there play list, then the systems prompts giving deleting options that will allow enough space or an option to accept later so the person can watch some of those options prior to deleting. If you accept later, then when ready just click on the accept option, anytime. I think this would be really cool feature requiring FIOS. An ideas to make it better?
I am very, very disappointed to learn, after switching from DirecTV, where I had easy access to all of YouTube on my TV through the remote, that one not only has to run YouTube through the "Media Manager" for Fios, but that I couldn't run it AT ALL because I have a Mac! Why can't Fios offer the same access as DirecTV?? Fail!
It would be nice if when you called up certain widgets they either slid out from the side of the screen or overlaid the screen at the top or bottom of the program you are watching. Widgets like weather, fantasy football, and facebook, are great examples of widgets that could benefit from this type of action. Having to leave or pause a television program to click several buttons to call up a new screen to look at these widgets is not very user friendly in my opinion. It is much easier to go to my iPad or iPhone and is the reason why I don't really use Fios widgets. I think Verizon is missing the boat here.
I only accidentally found the FIOS remote control widget for my ipod touch yesterday, it could have been available for months or more. How about a What's New in the monthly billing email /paperless statement?
Are there are plans to allow internet video streams to be viewed through the VZ media manager in the same way we have internet radio streams now? I want to be able to put in the stream address myself and not be locked in to youtube and others. Is this capability coming?
In the 'FiOS Mobile Remote' app for Android devices (on the Google Nexus 7 tablet), the login credentials are not being recognized, and the pairing of the remote on the app with the set top box (in conjunction with the 'FiOS Mobile Remote' TV widget) is not working.
The 'FiOS Mobile Remote' app is also a component of the 'My FiOS' app for Android devices.
The rest of the components of the 'My FiOS' app for Android seem to be working fine.
During the recent upgrade, maybe, the NYC 311 widget stopped working. It lets you select cameras, but they can't be opened up. Is there a way to do it? Pressing the OK button doesn't work. Please fix it.
