We need this just to work locally.
The app seems like the remote DVR, where it goes out to Verizon servers and then back you your STB. Why not IP to the router Wifi and then directly to the box. Not to Verizon and back to a gateway not found error. Or STB/DVR not communicating.
Just like the PC remote program that I asked for that could be loaded on your work station or laptop that uses Wifi or hardwired ethernet and would be direct from your computer to the STB or DVR. A user could sit at the couch and do searches with a full size PC, or laptop size keyboard. This would even take load off of the Verizon servers.
Why should Wifi not have a local connect feature where it does not require to be routed through Verizon's servers?
If WiFi is the standard for you, make it work without going out to the Verizon network and back. I tried my iPhone and it did not work without connecting to the verizon network, even though I entered the correct number provided on the screen.
All the apps or programs act like your are tring to do everything from outside your house from another State. NO it should be a simple thing for it to go IP through the router straight to the box. All you would need for the local option is to add the STB ID number and code to scan the local network for the ID. Bing you have it and everyone that wants a local RF remote would have it with just a tweek of your code.
Not part of your media software, but the remote software offered for the phones that could be used via wifi. And if possible the same program compiled for a PC..
This would also allow you to have two boxes sitting side by side and controlled seperately. Where the IR remote does not.
Now that Verizon Wireless is all on Windows Phone 8, will Verizon reconsider doing Windows Phone apps. With a shared kernel, you could do Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps for FiOS with some shared code.
Or you could open up the API and let us write our own apps. Twitter got alot of early adoption by having an open API.
Can you PLEASE give us the ability to modify scheduled recordings through the Internet site & the Fios Remote app?
It appears that the only way you can modify a recording (ie - set it to stop recording 5 minutes later, or record ONLY the first run episodes) is at the DVR. This does not help someone who is on the go and wants to set up a modified recording from their office on the computer, or on their mobile device.
I would like to all OSes on your platform to get equal treatment. All OSes should have access to in house app directed toward services you provide (dvr app). You service a Variety of customer that have different taste. Why should one customers get privileges over another that has mirroring services based on the OS they choose? I would also like to see your sale reps use the same energy to sale every OS, and Verizon give every OS a fair start out the gate. There have been countless time when I went to a Verizon store to check out a phone other than Android, and phone had either no internet service, was not charged, or was not on display. That makes it hard for a customer to make informed decision.
It's wonderful to be able to record shows using the Verizon My FIOS mobile app on my iPhone. Since I enjoy recording sports, it is very frustrating to not be able to use the "extend time" feature which is available when recording at home. Please add this feature to the mobile app! Thank you.
The Fios DVR app for motorola xoom should have the same functionality as the iPad app. The android version doesn't support landscape on the xoom, and the remote control doesn't work at all. Also, on the iPad app, you can change channels from the guide. It doesn't work on the xoom. Given the amount of time that's passed, and the amount of money we've invested, it's very surprising to me that we don't have this functionality for the xoom yet.
It would be great if I can see a list of messages I have on my answering service and quickly listen too them to determine if its important or can be deleted. Rather than staying on the phone waiting for the date and time and phone number and options and its been deleted and a lot of other machine talk.
