It would be very helpful to see the "current time" when watching a show on the DVR. For example, if I am watching a football game that was recorded between 1:00 and 4:30, it would be nice when I pause to be able to see that I am pausing at 2:27.
This would be helpful:
1) Halftime - if halftime starts at 2:27, I can watch the "current time" and fast forward to 2:42 to skip the halftime show.
2) Future Viewing - if I stop watching the game, but my son keeps watching, I know that when I start watching the game again, I need to rewind the game to 2:27
Right now, rewinding to an exact point in a recorded show is a big guessing game... not the football game.

This is very annoying indeed. Why does our 7232 return to the live action of a show currently recording when you hit 'STOP'?!? Regardless if you were on another channel prior to hitting play of show in progress/recording. (This happens during use of only 1 tuner, with our D* HR24 HD-DVRs this doesn't happen. It just returns you to the show/channel that you were previously watching. It will do it if both tuners are active, but that's understandable.)
This causes "Spoilers"! I don't want to see the current score or punchline to a movie.
C'mon FIOS get this corrected as it's really creating some major wifey aggro }8^)
I got Fios because it was going to be so much less expensive than Comcast was. Now, I'm considering getting rid of it when my 2 year contract is up because I feel you need to add more channels to the basic HD service. It is rediculous that you don't offer more as part of the basic package. The few channels that show movies, show the same ones over and over. I recently got rid of the movie channels that I subscribed to because they showed the same things over and over again and was charged $24.99 for the package (and not even notified it would happen after my 1st year was up) Some people are on fixed incomes and cannot afford such luxuries. You need to 'get with it', or you will be losing more and more customers.
i thought of a simple marketing idea which is a win-win for everyone. seeing as the holidays are coming, how about making it possible to GIFT someone a years worth of a premium channel upgrade. i bet it would become a popular gift and it would be easily renewable year to year. it came to me when i recieved a magazine subscription from my mom last christmas. just one thing, if you use my idea, how about gifting me one for making you millions? merry christmas!
I had an answering machine at home and I wanted to use after I instealled VZ FIOS phone, but VZ Voice Mail picked up before my answering machine did, so I had to call CS and request increasing number of rings to maximum.
Later my answering machine broke and I decided to take advantage of the VM service provided to me instead of buying a new machine, I had to call VZ CS again and again request to change number of ring to 4.
Would be nice to be able to change number of rings before Voice Mail picks up on-line at "My Verizon"
But Bill paying online is one of the worst I have ever seen. I never found it harder for a business establishment to take my money. And then if it is late you hammer me with a late charge. Multiple web sites and browser upgrades that are unable to access. Pretty unbelievable how bad the method is to simply pay a monthly bill.
Which brings me to another point. How about a customer loyalty break on the bill. It keeps creeping up and now around 150 bucks a month for the basics. While you offer newcomers 90 bucks for the same service. Thanks for listening.
I live in Toms River and used to get both NY and Philly local channels with Comcast. When I switched to Fios I was told by the sales rep that Verizon would be adding the local Philly channels to the line up. This is going on year 2 and I only get ABC Philly (no Eagles) and Comcast Sports Net (1/2 of all Phillies games). This area had a huge market for Philly based fans. Verizon should do whatever it takes to add the remainder of the local Philadelphia channels.
As a senior tv viewer, I've always viewed phil. news stations. The coverages are from New Jersey and Phila. and surrounding PA communities. I had no choice. I was force fed news that did not affect me. Is there any way verizon could broadcast a news station from the Delmarva area? WBOC covers a lot of Delaware news that pertain to me.
Not been credited for return set top boxes. Got Early termination fee just added. I have one actual past due bill the I would like to pay so per chance I could. I would probably return to FIOS internet, may mobile. $777.00 of trumped up fees to close the account will only act as a ban to my ever using Verizon again for anything. All this is heading towards is your posting exaggerated losses to the IRS.
I think you should attempt to add more states. I just moved from Florida to Alabama, and the only provider for cable and internet is Charter. Having to use Charter now makes me miss Verizon Fios even more! Your programs are excellent, the customer service for Verizon is better than any other, and the prices are better, considering the higher quality services. So please come to Alabama! Specifically Tuscaloosa!
