I really love the mobile remote app that is available for the iphone and android platforms, however there is nothing for my blackberry...yet. Is there something in the works for the blackberry? I know you have your remote dvr app for blackberry, so one would think?
Enable Video On Demand queues on the STB. Allow the user to subscribe to a show and when a new show is added to the VOD library, it is automatically added to the user's queue. Similar to DVR Series Recordings where it is automatically recorded.
It would also be nice to combine the DVR & VOD experience by making those queues and recordings available under the same menu. For Example, if a user goes to current recorded programs it also shows all of the new VOD content available to which the user is subscribed.
I was "watching" the FIOS broadcast of the Princeton:Cornell basketball game, 2-25-2011.
Do your announcers realize that their mic is live 100% of the time? Besides inane patter, I now know that one of them has been married twice, is going out with his ex-wife tonight. Another's daughter is using the FIOS widget.
Also heard them teaching the female commentator how to do an interview.
Tell them to treat every mic as an open mic.
And as for the feed, I thought I was watching Max Headroom several times, with freezing images and stuttering commentary.
Make them watch and critique the entire show. Including the first 6:41 with no sound.

P.S. I really just wanted to pass this along via Verizon Contact, but unless I wanted to upgrade my service or had a technical question, there was no avenue to pass this along.
Oh well. So it goes. Live Chat wasn't live, either.
Allow ipad/iphone/android apps to work without the action tech router. Have the box communicate to the network, or internet. Hate that we have to have the outdated action tech installed for ppv and ipad connection.
I was finally hooked up to Verizon Call Assistant and, unless I'm overlooking the feature, I am surprised there doesn't appear to be some way to receive a Call Notification on the TV screen as is available with the cable service I just moved from. It's a great feature as, while you're enjoying a TV program and a call comes in, you can screen the call and decide whether to answer it or let it go to voice mail.
Have I overlooked it? If not, please consider adding it.
I record a lot of episodes of my daughters favorite cartoons. Up to 20 at a time for each show. The problem is, once an episode is over she wants to watch another episode which means going back to the area she is watching and use the remote and selecting another episode and playing it for her. I'm really not lazy, however it would be great if you were able to create a playlist and press play. Any thoughts?
Any chance of Super 15 Rugby being added back to a Fios available station? FS+ used to carry it but lost SANZAR rights for the 2011 season. DIRECTV has added an entire channel dedicated to showing all games of Super 15, arguably the best rugby union competition around. Fios should consider the same. Thanks.
Dish Network now has a number of Israeli channels. Verizon FIOS is offered in many locations where there are concentrations of Israelis or of jewish-Americans who would be interested in an Israeli channel.
Given the amount of foreign channels, including some that would appear to appeal to a smaller audience than the Israeli/Jewish audience, an Israeli channel could fit right into FIOS's foreign language lineup.
I know of a number of people that have DISH solely because of the Israeli channels.
Allow users to specify the time a recording can be extended with more flexible options from standard increments. Sometimes I need to extend a recording just 1 minute instead of 5 minutes because a lot of shows get cut off at the very end. That way it won't interfere with the next recording as much. Dish Network had this feature a long time ago and I really enjoyed it.
I have Apple TV connected to one of my televisions and it works great to stream Nttflix movies as well as media that I have on my laptop. Since the STB's work off of the wireless router, there should be a way to connect Apple TV, wirelessly, to them and content from Apple TV. This way, I could have my Apple TV connectd to my family room television but then connect to it on my kitchen tv and acces movies/media, that way. This has to be possible.
Everytime I call Verizon, it is a maze of push this and that. No, I do not have a home phone therefore I can not enter my phone number. And then I always get transferred to some random person in a random department. I have called several times for tech support and get COLLECTIONS when I am not past due. Then I was disconnected by tech support while waiting because they couldn't "help me" even though I was never asked by the automated "lady" what my problem was! I hate calling verizon and am THISCLOSE to canceling service.
Verizon: make calling for home service as easy as calling for wireless.

I get FiOS TV and Internet through my HOA, however the way the account is set up (HOA being the owner), I'm locked out of all the cool online features for my FiOS TV account. It's not a small community so the problem is widespread. For example, I can sign into My Verizon account, but since the HOA owns the account, it does not show that I have FiOS TV service it only shows my internet plan. Same problem on the iPhone app, I can directly connect to 1 DVR, but I can not log in to my account for multiple DVR support. I would like to see better online integration for HOA members even though we technically are not "owners" of the accounts.
