Please roll back your latest update so the Program Grid doesn't block the screen! It was fine with the small screen on the upper right-hand corner, and NO, the half-size menu doesn't alleviate the problem. Why make a good feature bad? Please bring back that option.
This is kind of a 3 in 1 deal. I was thinking that VZ should offer FIOS on the go. If you subscribe to FIOS TV and FIOS internet, why not have FIOS everywhere you go. For instance, VZ will need to offer the internet card and as long as you are subscribed to FIOS TV and Internet you will have the ability to watch live TV directly from your PC/laptop. It's more of the concept of watching TV as if you at home but in reality you are away from home. How cool will that be. Just a thought!
When viewing recorded video, I'd like the ability to enter a number of minutes with the remote then press the 'next' button to skip that many minutes forward. And likewise the same feature with the 'prev' button.
I recently got a 2nd receiver box for my bedroom and turned on the Home Media Function which seems to be rather disappointing and not the impression of its capabilities as described by the representative at the Verizon store. From what I gather the only feature is the ability to watch a recorded program that is on the DVR in my living room. I would had thought I could pause/play other current programs on the TV, delete recorded programs or at least manage the DVR in my living room from the bedroom set box. My only option now is to either walk downstairs to record a program or use the app on my iPhone to record something. It seems like if I can use an iPhone app to manage my downstairs DVR the least I should be able to do is do it through the Home Media function. Seems like for the same price per month I could just cancel the Home Media feature and get another DVR box, then record the programs on both DVRs so I get all the functions? Thanks for your thoughts or advice.
With Directv I was able to press a button on the remote and it would bring up all the scores of live sporting events. In addition one touch would take you to the chennel that game was playin gon. Fiostv needs to add this feature if possible as it made viewing sports that much better.
Of course adding Fox Soccer and Plus in HD need to happen as well.
For an example, I would like to have the "search by keyword" menu come up when I push say the A button on the remote. Right now I have to push four buttons (Menu-->Up-->OK--OK). These configurable buttons would only work when the A,B,C,D are not already defined like in various widgets.
It would be great to have the option to remove those SD channels that are also available in HD from the program guide and recording options.
Removing the SD duplicates from the guide would make it easier when scheduling a program as you wouldn't have to sort through the list of program times and worry about which channel you are recording it on in order to get HD. I don't need to see channel 4 available when channel 504 is out there.
This should be an option in the IMG that can be turned on/off.
First off, there are no Verizon WiFi hotspots in the city I'm in and only one in a neighboring city... so hopefully Verizon is going to be working to expand that a bit. But right now even if they do they are limiting access to only certain Windows devices. How about adding support for iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone) or Mac OS X devices (MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air)?
Just this week, after reading all of the good things about the new Western Digital external hard drive that greatly expands the storage capacity of my DVR, I ordered one. When I connected and powered up the device, NOTHING HAPPENED. I called Verizon Tech Support. The person I reached had no idea what I was talking about, but he did go ask someone about it.
The information I received from him was VERY DISAPPOINTING. He told me that firmware release 1.9 was required for this device to work and my area did not have that version. Bottom line is that you folks at Verizon touted the device to me and got me to spend $100 on what is nothing more than an expensive paperweight until some unknown date when you choose to make release 1.9 available in my area. The fact that you do not disclose the requirement for 1.9 on your web site I find to be at least unethical and maybe even dishonest.
My NEW IDEA is that Verizon disclose all pertinent facts about products you are marketing to you customers BEFORE purchase, not after. This should not be a new idea for you, but it appears that it is.
