Sometimes I forget to record a favorite show, or have a last minute change of plans on a favorite tv night. If I know someone else with verizon who has recorded this show, it would be nice if they could share their DVR show with my DVR.
I am very sorry to hear that I will no longer be able to dial a number on the phone to get the accurate time of day, or the weather forecast, beginning June 1, 2011. I have used these services for years, and have come to rely on them. I am very disappointed that Verizon has decided to no longer provide these services, especially the weather forecast, which I listen to every morning, before planning my day. Verizon, please reconsider.
Bright House has a feature that allows anybody (with or without a DVR) to start a live show from the beginning, even though they do not have it recorded. They call it start over and I really think it's th done 'major' thing missing from fios. Not sure if it was already suggested, but I think this feature would be awesome!
I would really like to be able to order VOD to view on my TiVo with cable card. The Tivo is internet connected and it should be able to request the VOD via internet and have the content delivered either over internet or via the cable card.
Alternatively, I could live with ordering the content via my PC for display on my tivo.

All Verizon software leaves many items behind and actually still running after removing the product. Clean up your uninstall code so it does not leave so much trash on the system. Not to mention dlls and active code after you have removed the software.
Latest Verizon Spot light magazine shows a peek at the future Fios TV channel guide. I have to say it looks like a horrible change. Verizon developers just don't get it when it comes to the channel guide. Customers want a channel guide that allows you to see just general listings by channel and time slot. The current channel guide just needs to get rid of the obstructive detail window in the middle of the screen. The way it should be is when the customer wants to see the detail of a show, they can select it and press the OK button.
Also, Verizon needs to sort the HD and standard channels so that the HD version of a channel is the next position up from the standard def channel. Having the standard def channels and the HD def channels so far apart on the channel numbers is very annoying.
If you want a perfect live example of the way the channel lineup and guide should be, take a look at Directv's setup. The hit the mark as far as I am concerned.
Only South Brooklyn Russian Population is about 700,000 people. I would say 90% of them are using Cablevision and they are skeptical switching because FIOS has only 2 RUSSIAN channels vs.. 4 at Cablevision. You can win all Russian customers if you offer a similar Russian package or add at least NTV channel which is very popular in Russian community.
I've called Verizon tech support on 4 separate occassions over the 2 months that I've been a customer trying to resolve this or that on e-mailing and downed phone lines. Here's the problem, the representative asks for an alternative number to call you back on - like the one I'm using isn't good enough. Then when the problem isn't solvable by their scripted solutions they disconnect and never call you back. At first, as we were having a phone line issue, I thought it was coincidence and now I'm convinced that if they can't solve the problem and aren't willing to do anything more than read their screen they disconnect and NEVER call back. But wait...didn't you tell me you'd call me back if we got disconnected????
I'm going to try again tomorrow and if I'm met with the same rude behavior then I'm done with Verizon.
In short my idea is this... actually pay for people who know what they are doing and know how to own a problem and see it through to solution. I've used Verizon on and off for a decade and this is the one thing that has remained constant.
Dearest Verizon FiOS gurus, gods, et al, so here is a question I'm sure cannot be new to you; With the advent of smart phones with wifi, Apple's iPhone & iPad (2) with wifi (are you following the theme here?), Blackberry's with wifi, etc, how does one, such as I, a loyal FiOS subscriber, get such devices to work on the included Verizon Wi-Fi for FiOS internet hotSpots???? Are/will there be apps for such devices which would authenticate you to the FiOS Wi-Fi HotSpots??????
It would be great if Verizon could answer the competition with "yup, there's an app for that" Would love to get my new iPad2 (when I get it) to be able to use the Verizon WI-FI HotSpots all over the country with a Verizon provided app to authenticate myself as a valid user and be able to surf the net while at my favorite, albeit overpriced coffee Shoppe
