Enter New Idea

3D is a fad that people will soon become sick of, however HD is here to stay.  Much more people have HD tv's than 3D, so I think it would be wise to add more HD channels than to add 3D channels.  

Status: In Progress
First... I can remember people saying this to me at the start of the HD revolution (please focus on SD as no one has HDTV's). Even as late as 2004. I say your idea is in progress because our content plans include way, way, way more HD content than 3D content. But we can't ignore 3D... this round of 3D isn't going to be a fad. Recently I saw a demo of a 3DTV that doesn't require the glasses... which I think will do the same thing for 3D that flat screens did for HD... HD didn't really take off until the form factor got changed.

Allow FiOS TV boxes to use DLNA to share media

Status: In Progress

Instead of having us download and install yet another media management application (VZ Media Manager), how about just supporting DLNA, so that existing DLNA servers can work with the FiOS TV box?


Windows Media Player on Windows Vista/7 already provides a DLNA server. I see no real reason why VZ Media Manager is necessary.


I understand Media Manager is required for us to be able to access YouTube on our boxes, but surely that functionality can be broken out into a smaller application that can run as a service on Windows, instead of this giant, memory-hogging thing that must run in the foreground all the time...

Status: In Progress
You might not remember, but we introduce the capability of sharing content from the computer onto the TV screen in 2006... before DLNA was on the scene. Verizon is committed to employing DLNA to share content between devices in the home. You Tube, iHeart Radio, etc will be able to be directly accessed from the Internet by most set top boxes in the future also removing the need for Media Manager to bridge to the set top box. Stay tuned.

Filter on available HD channels only

Status: In Progress

I wish there were a way to set a global filter so that ONLY HD channels/shows would show up.  That means, search, guide, everything on the box would show only those shows that are HD AND that I'm subscribed to.  The current HD filter is temporary and it shows all the pay channels that I don't have.  Real pain.

Modes... can be selected by hitting the right arrow. We are working to make the modes take over things like search and VOD as well. Got your point about subscribed only content.

Jump to instead of "Fast Forward" On Demand

Status: In Progress
by Kier on ‎08-28-2010 07:21 AM

I like to watch full movies with "On Demand", after work late at night, sometimes I'll fall asleep and miss half of the movie.


The next day, I want to finish the movie, but have to wait 10 minutes to Fast Forward to find the middle of the movie where I fell asleep. Why isn't there a way to jump in 5 minute or 10 minute segments to pick up where you left off, instead of waiting forever wasting bandwidth? Maybe a "FF 8x", "FF 16x", "FF 32x".


Another thing. The basic listing in the "On Demand' guide no longer displays a "NEW" icon for newly listed movies in the premium movies section, unless you select a movie for "More Information", which uses up a lot of time when loading. The same applies for the year (date) of the movie, unless you click the "information tab". I like to watch new listings and can't remember what is new and what is old. Verizon touts about how many thousand movies it has, but leaves you in the dark.


I know, they have a section of "new movies", but I don't want to muddle through the PPVs and the "On Demand" trying to figure which is free and which will cost me, by selecting each movie one at a time to see if it is free or not.


Finally. If FIOS is so fast, then why is there an insane delay between clicks when navigating the "On Demand" menu? The little LED light on the box is instant when I click the remote, but the menu drags behind. I almost bought a few unwanted PPVs that way.


Sorry, one more thing. I hate the "On Demand" Search, because they do not tell you that the movie is from Encore, HBO, Cinemax, ShowTime or anything. You have to "Click and Hope" that the movie is in your package. If it isn't, the you have to search all over again.

Status: In Progress
That's like 4 ideas in one submission idea #1: is in progress... new capability will allow you to point and skip to chapters in the movie idea #3 and #4: are also in progress... new search with more features and new VOD system that goes faster idea #2: I have to review

we know Pandora is not available everywhere. We know what we need to do to finish the deployment. We're in the process of doing it. It has taken a bit longer than we would have liked, but we will be there 'soon'.

App for iPhone too

You have the app for iPads with the ability to stream shows while connected to the VZ wifi inside your house. It looks like you just added an Android app that does the same thing. Any chance of an iPhone/iPod app that does the same thing?

Channel Guide /DVR List Enhancements

Status: In Progress
by alexw ‎09-09-2010 11:34 AM - edited ‎09-09-2010 11:40 AM

I know there is a guide update coming, but if this isn't in it, then for the next round....


I would like the following: (bold most important, red super important)


Correct guide data.  Several of the shows I watch regularly have overall series descriptions with no ep titles or anything else (Dragonball Z Kai for example).


Episode Title

Episode Season/Number (101,102,501, etc)

Original Air Date


These things should be in the initial view for when you go into the guide, without needing to click additional buttons, and then click again multiple times to return to live tv.  Once click, scroll, see that stuff, exit, done.  Additional info should only be needed/used on rare occasions. 


Also, make this available in the info box that appears when changing channels in live tv mode.

These things should also be available in 0 or 1 clicks from the DVR guide list.  When looking at upcoming or already recorded items, you may realize you've seen something since it happened in season 1, and want to delete without watching.


Related - be able to view guide data, full/additional info, for programs in the upcoming list in DVR.


New is only displayed if it is the first time it has aired ever, on any channel.


Get new icon for "new since being picked up in syndication on X channel" for those types of things, if needed.  I personally don't care though.


Overall - reduce clicks to see pertinent data. Click into menu, give me most useful data immediately, and if needed, 1 more click for all data.  Quick escape button back to main menu or live tv from there.

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.

With FiOS Digital Voice you can manage your calls and voice mail on the web at using your MyVerizon signin credentials. .We also have a mobile app under "Verizon FiOS Digital Voice" for Droids. We hope to have for iOS in the future. You can also modify your FDV voice mail so it doesn't play the time & date for each message and set for expert prompts to shorten prompt verbiage.

Two ideas (more Internet content in progress / wireless keyboard option already exists) More Internet content is definitely on the way. You can use a smart phone and the FiOS Remote app to get that QWERTY keyboard if you have an Android or iOS device....

Currently on boxes with img 1.8 - one is only able to play one hd program on a different box besides the multi-dvr.  A great option would be the ability to play at a minimum 2 HD streams simultaneously on different boxes besides the multi-dvr.  My family records almost everything in HD.  If someone is using the DVR and someone else is watching a program streaming from the dvr - the 3rd person is unable to watch anything besides live TV or VOD.  Anyone with kids or a big family knows that this can be a big pain.


Everything I have read about the new 1.9 img does not mention this capability.  Sounds like a ton of great features but this issue is definitely one that needs to take top priority for those of us with the Multi-room dvr.


Any chance this is part of the 1.9 upgrade?   If it is not part of 1.9 can someone explain if it's in development or theres a limitation hardware/software preventing it?

Not all DVR's have the horsepower to stream two HD recordings... silver ones not so much...

by daqween on ‎06-02-2011 09:45 PM

tv shows should have a VOD tab when u hit the info button. For example, I am watching As Good As Dead but I can't finish it right now. So, I hit the Info button 2x. I see Watch Now, Record, and Upcoming shows but no VOD. Please add VOD. Thanks

Status: In Progress
Link the live TV show / channel to its associated VOD content... agreed.

Use Multi-DVR setups like a hive

With the new IMG 1.9, it won't matter anymore where a program is recorded, I'll be able to watch it anywhere.


I'd like to set up a recording and let the DVR pool decide where to actually record the show based on available disk space and tuner availability.


This would reduce conflicts and would effectly load balance the available disk space on the DVRs.

This is crazy, crazy hard... but something that is worth working on. We have been chugging on this... but any tuner in any box is eligible... so even if you only have 1 DVR and 1 STB you would end up with 3 eligible tuners. Going to take quite some time... maybe 2.0 (but could easily come after that release)

The title pretty much describes it all. I have an Android an was browsing the Android Market looking for FiOS apps and I came across the Verizon FiOS Digital Voice app. The app was incredible. It integrated with all of my contacts on my phone and it allowed me to do everything that I was able to do via PC. I'd love to see this on the iOS front. I have a couple mobile Apple devices (iPad, iPod Touch) and was disappointed not to see this. Additionally, if you guys do decide to implement this idea can it be integrated into the FiOS Mobile apps. I think it'd be much neater if everything was in one place. Currently you have to download a DVR manager app, and remote app. I don't think we should add on to this. Also I think My Verizon should be fully integrated into the FiOS Mobile apps instead of having to go to


Additionally, email integration would be cool to add into the Verizon mobile apps. Comcast has all of the features above and it's really neat.
