New Guide - Bug: More

Status: Acknowledged
by custom on ‎01-17-2012 06:38 AM

Previous:

 

With the HD Graphics view, in Favorites mode, going from the "Channel Guide" version to the full version places the focus up one favorite channel.  Weird.  (It doesn't occur in SD Graphics view or All Channels mode.)

 

[I know this issue has been reported.]

 

Also:

 

With the HD Graphics view, in Favorites mode, going from the mini version to the full version places the focus down one favorite channel.  Weird difference.  (Again, it doesn't occur in SD Graphics view or All Channels mode.)

High Speed Internet for Rural Areas

Status: Acknowledged
by OSPF on ‎03-28-2011 01:23 PM

We live in a rural area and can not get cable, broadband, DSL - we have Satellite TV and Mobile (Cellular) Broadband for internet access.  I work from home and have to use VPN to logon so Mobile Broadband is my only option.  We live in Hanover County Virginia in the Old Church area and there are no towers close to us.  The tower that closer is too short to do any good for my location.  Our signal is coming from 7 miles away so I'm lucky to be able to do what I can.    There is a switching station 1.3 miles away from us - is there nothing Verizon can do to provide internet access from there ?    What about putting up a dish on the communications tower on Flanagans Mill Road ?   If a T1 was not cost-prohibitive I'd get one - but it's out of the question at it's current $$.

This bug was also in 1.8 but remains, at least on Motorola boxes, with 1.9.

 

Channels that broadcast 16x9 anamorphic  SD are not handled correctly if SD override or Native is set.  Instead it is letterboxed within a 4x3 image.  I am talking about those that do broadcast for full screen 16x9 not those that actually broadcast with black bands attached. 

 

Note than when Native and SD override is not set the STB does upscale these to full screen 16x9, but of course then I lose the advantage of Native mode for other channels.

Who writes and submits the program descriptions that are displayed in the FIOS TV Guide? Does anyone edit the descriptions before they are displayed?

 

Given the limited space for each entry, it is frustrating to see that multiple programs begin with the same redundant phrases.

The following examples are taken from the guide on any day:

- Archived material and expert commentary is brought together ...
- Interested viewers are present with ...
- Dramatic reenactments depict ...
- Viewers are offered ...
- A look at the ...

 

I'm not impressed with 'creative writing' on the TV Guide. I expect to see, at a glance, something about the program that allows me to decide if I want to read the expanded description. I'm not at all interested in knowing that the program is 'offered' or 'presented'  to 'interested viewers'.

 

They need to be Clear, Consise, and to the point. In other words: Keep It Simple Stupid.

Since I can watch programs recorded on a DVR on a second TV and also choose to record shows from the 2nd TV, It sure would be great if I could delete programs on the DVR after watching them on the second TV, from the second TV.

 

Thanks.

New Guide - Favorites Enhancement Tweak

Status: Acknowledged
by custom on ‎01-13-2012 07:59 PM

The new feature that keeps the guide views set to Favorites is convenient — one less button press.

 

However, one problem that now arises is that, if the current channel is not a favorite, then there's no information on it when you bring up the guide.  To get it, you need to press the Favorites button to see the channel and then press it again to set the guide back to Favorites when you're done.  So, maybe the current channel can be a temporary addition to the Favorites list.

 

Thanks.

Stop Bloging 4G LTE on the residential web site!

 

Moderators would be pointing users to the Wireless Community site, if they posted this.

 

Unless it is the New FiOS to the home. Then announce it.

 

NO THANKS. I WANT TO KEEP MY FIBER! Keep supporting Fiber.

Thanks for your suggestion, Prisaz- I've passed it along to the blog writers.

Streaming serious traditional TV alternative, or stop screwing around!!!

As Addressed on http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Verizons-Nonsensical-LG-TV-FiOS-Offer-117818

In the process of trying to build hype LG's CES press release doesn't bother to tell you that to access this content you'll need to subscribe to both FiOS Internet and FiOS TV services. So again, why exactly would a customer who already has a FiOS set top use the integrated content being offered via their television? Verizon should either get into over the top streaming and offer a product that seriously offers a traditional TV alternative, or stop screwing around.

Hi All- I greatly appreciate your feedback and thoughts on this matter. I'll make sure they are seen by the proper team within Verizon. Thank you!

CRIMINY! DOES EVERY %$#@! WEB PAGE HERE HAVE TO BE 20GB and 80% PROMOTIONAL SALES CRAP???? Can ANY page on this site EVER just get down to the business at hand?? Are you so upset that your only getting $420 a month from me that you totally PANIC if I won't spend $8 to watch Christina Agulera and Cher on my cell phone??

Why IMG 1.9? Why not On-screen Guide?

Status: Already Exists
by custom on ‎01-12-2012 08:34 AM

Especially with the recent changes, info for the on-screen guide should be prominent.  I'm technical, and I wouldn't look to "IMG 1.9" for help with the on-screen guide.

 

Further, right now, the link for the on-screen guide should be featured, not buried in the Residential Products and Services list.

 

Thanks.
