Why not create a widigit or channel that allows you to calibrate your tv settings (color, brightness,etc).....

Let's go Verizon--get a move on.

 

GPON out Apple Pie Ridge Road, Winchester, VA.  Easy, and you'll gain the whole ridge.  I know, not the most lucrative market, small, but don't forget us "little people."

Smaller Digital adapter

Status: Acknowledged
by freakout212 on ‎11-16-2013 06:41 PM

When will Verizon be offering a smaller Digital adapter? The current model Motorola DCT-700 Digital Adapter is very large and slow. When I had Comcast I had a smaller digital adapter that was quick that also had a extra IR sensor so you could mount the adapter in back. It was sooo nice. All Verizon has is this big thing. Come on Verizon MAN UP!!!!!!

Suggestion 1:  Remove the 1.5 TB firmware limitation for the e-Sata add on drive.  While I uderstand that this is likely for two reasons - digital contrant protection and indexing speed of large storage units - both of these can be addressed with the appropriate software/firmware changes, enabling a home user to have multiple TB's of stored DVR playback.This is especially a limiting factor in recording HD programming.

 

Suggestion 2:  Influence Motorola to rid itself of the e-Sata interface and replace it with Apple's Thunderbolt interface.  3 Gbps unidirectional versus 10 Gbps bi-directional.

 

These two suggestions would allow me to watch my HD football games in one room, my wife to watch the LIfetime channel in another room, and the kids to watch Disney channel recordings in yet a third and fourth room.

 

Just saying - in the land of the free - these are very limiting factors.

IPAD FIOS page

Status: Acknowledged
by ramon1 on ‎11-01-2013 08:01 AM

I have an IPAD and can watch FIOS tv.  PROBLEMS ARE:

1.  The volume (although turned to max) is very low usisng FIOS..when using SLING BOX, volume is appropriate

2.  The Bookmarks for channels have no explanation to set up or do not work

3.  The tiled channels on the LIVE TV page one should be allowed to arrange in preference order to make selections easier

 

look at the set up for SLING BOX....much easier to use

I am a Verizon business phone customer. On my toll-free line, recently someone or some entity has been leaving messages on my voicemail which use up my entire message allowance time, preventing me from getting any more messages until I clear the voicemail. Mostly the calls come in the early morning hours, but sometimes during the day. This is highly problematic, since it is difficult to keep a constant vigil on my voicemail, and I'm losing business calls (meaning considerable money).

 I contacted Verizon's "harrassing calls" department and was told that these types of calls cannot be blocked, especially if their origin is overseas. The first woman I spoke to did not seem too sympathetic to my plight. She said I would have to get the police involved to have it investigated. The next guy I spoke to was more sympathetic, but also said there was not a lot that could be done.

 If there was an option on the voicemail allowing me to limit incoming messages to specific time allowances, say, one minute,  this would alleviate this problem greatly. The calls, I've been told, come in under "spoof" numbers, so it is difficult to tell who's doing it. Their messages leave a noise which sounds something like a fax machine, though different. Some are possibly from overseas, but it's hard to tell since they're spoofed.

 If I were Verizon management, I would take this suggestion seriously, in order to keep customers like me happy. I have been a happy Verizon customer over many years (also use your cell phone service), so please look into adopting time limit options for voicemail messages. As a multi-billion dollar company, and in this day of technology, it should be a simple thing to incorporate. I have several business phone lines, but may eliminate my toll-free line if this problem does not get resolved, which means Verizon loses money.

 Thank you for allowing me to express this idea to you.

Have you guys thought about expanding your market to vehicles for Wi-Fi hotspots or to be able to pick up a Verizon network to be able to do different things with the computers that are in most new vehicles... Or something similar?

 

My suggestion for FIOS is to be able to have an on/off option to view the TV video/audio while in the FIOS menus. 

 

Specifically, as a new FIOS user, I find it frustrating that I can't get to the DVR without having to watch what is being broadcast in the small preview window while in the FIOS menu system. For example, yesterday I was using the DVR to record a 1:00 football game.  I came home at 2:00 and wanted to watch the game from the beginning.  However, the game was being recorded and on the active channel.  Therefore, when navigating the menus, I was forced to watch and listen to the broadcast.  Obviously, this spoiled the results.  I guess for the foreseeable future, I will have to mute the TV and cover the right side of the screen to avoid these spoilers. 

 

Am I doing something wrong, because I can't find a menu option to turn on/off the small TV preview while in the menus?  Any suggestions on how to handle sporting events, reality TV, etc. would be appreciated.

Since you are recording, one suggestion might be to immediately press the dvr button. This brings up the dvr menu. From there pick the currently recording show ans selct "play from the beginning. As for the sound. Hit mute. Your idea will be passed on the the appropriate team, but in the meantime this may help.

Bring verizon users a 802.11 ac wifi router

Status: Acknowledged
by kim1 on ‎10-04-2013 07:32 PM

Can you get your enginers to come ut with a 802.11 ac wifi router and use the linysis brand sicne the curent ones are just junk. This would allow us to have other items such as powerline adapters and wifi range expanshion kits of the same brand allowing us to expand out netwrok as needed which would help alot so we are not having to put holes in walls to run netwrok wiring to expand the network or dealing with a 3rd part equipment that may or may not work.

Can you have your fios voice servus upgraded so that i can use my fios roter and make it where i can but a cisco phne and use it as a voip based set up. This would make it much easer on your users making it were less wiring has to be ran around the house and with some of the newer cisco phone they are now even wirless. Pleae do this upgrade since it would bring in more user and make it where we can mangage multiple phone lines as well.

Make Verizon App available through B&N App store for Nook Color

Status: Acknowledged

Verizon Team:  I have a Nook Color, and according to B&N customer service today, there are no plans to update the operating system to allow access to Google Play.  The Nook HD/+ have access to Google Play, but not previous versions.

 

Would it be possible to post up the Verizon app on the B&N app interface so I can download and take advantage of those features?

 

Many many thanks in advance!!!

Thanks so much for the interest in the Nook App. This will be taken to the team responsible for App development. No Promises, but if this is taken as an Idea, it will posted in this thread. Keep posting!

Actually this contains two things.

1. a sdk of the router firmware so we can write our own routing software including the webpage hosting it does for administration. Perferably C or C++ since all the other languages are interpretted and slow.

 

2.Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR) 

 http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6616/products_ios_protocol_group_home.html

 

For those who don't know: This is more or less a scripting language to help block packets and discover ones matching them and blocking those as well. Recently need to drop all skype packets of everykind. The app will use probably any port it feels like to get to the server and open a voice connection. Tried blocking by dns's but it will then proceed to use 443 or 80... Which is not plausible to block as all of html will break.

Please come to Canada.

Canada is about the size of California -- a huge market.

Please bring FiOS.

If you used Cablecards for TV, I would immediately sign up -- since I could then use a Tivo (which uses cablecards).

The PVRs of the current 3 Canadian companies have less features than a 10-year-old Tivo.

The current 3 Canadian companies just sit back on their oligopoly and do not innovate.

Your offering would be far far superior -- you would leap-frog them and be far more attractive.

If you have my TV subscription, I would also add phone and internet to bundle them.

Please come to Canada.

Please use Cablecards.

Please do so quickly.

Thank you.

Canada! Wow, people want FiOS in Canada. I am not aware of any current plans to offer FiOS in Canada. Thanks so much for showing an interest.

Verizon Fios should have a service where surveillance cameras could be hooked up to the Fios wireles router via rg45 cables in order to be able to capture video on a "cloud" or dedicated server on that account. This would  eliminate the need to buy an extra dvr box for the sole purpose of recording security video. In addition, have the same features to view recorded video content on mobile devices like iPhones, androids, etc. vis the internet.

hi - i would like to suggest that verizon enable a password option to access phone log and voicemail on the fios TV screen.   - without this option, anyone who gets the remote control can see phone call log and hear voicemail messages, and can erase them etc.  what are your thoughts?  thx
