I am VERY disappointed in Verizon Calendar. I don't like the format and more importantly it will not let me chose a repeat item for the 2nd of each month. It wants a date! I don't have the time or desire to look up every 2nd of Jan. for the next ..........years. Why do I also have to have an end date? If it is a birthday, it is ongoing....I don't want to have to update my calendar every 60 months. It is also time consuming to add an event to the calendar.....why do I have to go into add more details to put a time on the appointment? After trying to switch everything from my MSN premium account, where everything worked so easily, this is very frustrating. Any suggestions?
Allow these ports to be switched on or off by the customer, for newer hardware if they support gigabit. Allow customers to use the Ethernet ports if they support gigabit and the house is wired for it. MOCA can not achieve these speeds for multi-room multi-hub DVRs. Two streams are barely enough. Something better will be needed when we go to a home server as announced at CES. Now if they are only 10/100, on the newer hardware, than someone should have been thinking differently.

Currently, if you use media manager to play video from your PC, the forward button jump certain mins. It would be nice if the forward button actually work as a forward button by forwarding the video at 1.5-2x speed like most forward buttons do.
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.]
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.)
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.
Its a nice extra, but the only thing i use fios tv for is watching tv DVR and VOD. Things like marketplace games widgets are just pointless in my opinion. They only slow down my TV and TV isnt supposed to be games etc.
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.
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.
