I have 2 VMS 1100 HD DVR's.  Just last week, both and one client were upgraded from Firmware Release 1.0 to Release 1.0b.  I no longer can search on a show, then have the option to record the show or record the series from the search results.  I was able to do this on Release 1.0 prior to the upgrade to Release 1.0b.  Please restore this functionality.

tv listing and on Demand listing

Status: Acknowledged

These TV listing suck why do I have to go to each on demand channel and scan alphabetically to see what is playing. Why can't they provide one alphabetically listing for all free and premium channels. On the regular TV listing why can't I filter by more than one criteria, for example list all hd movies. Currently I have to select all HD channels or all movie channels. Why are the movies given a rating or some comment on likes or dislikes.

Why can't the listing be more user friendly?

Living in Ventura County is like living in an open sandwich with bread only on the bottom. All we get here is Los Angeles news and they rarely ever give our news stories or weather/traffic. They do 100% LA, Orange and Riverside info but not Ventura.

They assume everyone works in LA area and south and east of LA. Many of us travel to Santa Barbara frequently so having local SB traffic, weather and news would be great. Can u feed us CBS, ABC and NBC local news eminating from Santa Barbara in addition to the LA stations we already get?

Thank you.

The above (in subject line) was great and allowed us to search all sports on by day. Almost all of the other categories (Action, Children, etc) have this. The first two folders used to be &quot;Sports on Television&quot; and &quot;Sports on Demand&quot; but now &quot;on Television&quot; is gone during the last year. I am sure it was a decision but....why? Thanks, KW<br><br><br><br>

Would be nice if there was a Verizon Connection available to those of us who are without service for extended periods of time.  You could give us a code for use while our internet services are down.

Verizon has cancelled the free web personal space it used to provide for its customers to create and maintain personal websites, forcing their customers to move their website to a new web host.  This cancellation is effective sometime in September 2014.   This forces verizon customers to move their Verizon personal website (whose personal website url address starts off with "http://mysite.verizon.net") to a new web host, and it will change the url address of the verizon customer's website.  Web Surfers clicking on that personal website link wherever it is already linked to on the net will get an error message instead of being able to see that website.  It's only fair for verizon to set up URL forwarding so that if a person clicks on the no-longer-operational verizon personal website address, a web surfer will automatically be redirected to the verizon customer's new webpage at its new host.  Will Verizon please do this?  Again, It's only fair . . .  Please set up URL forwarding for the cancelled verizon websites and email all verizon customers with instructions on how to provide their new website's URL to you to accomplish this.  If Verizon doesn't want to provide url forwarding for free, I would be willing to pay for it, but we need your help verizon!!.  A verizon customer can't set up URL forwarding from Verizon pages without it!!!  Thank you in advance for doing the right thing to minimize the harm you're causing by cancelling a service you promised to provide when we signed up with you.

When you add phone numbers that you want to receive phone calls from while the Do Not Disturb feature activated the "blocked" callers get a message saying that I am not accepting phone calls at this time. 

 

There should be an option for people to be able to leave a voicemail and a choice to of me using the DND message or my own voicemail message.  And in this age of many people having a cell phone and home phone, I should be able to add more than 10 numbers.  I have DND schedule for 10pm to 9am every day because my husband and I get up very early for work (sometimes he works late).  I set up 6 phone numbers so far that I'd like to be able to get through (my cell, husband's cell, kids cells & his work #s). would like to be able to add family member phone #s just in case of an emergency.  Don't like to keep my cell phone on all night since I frequently get wrong #s calling me all hours of the night.

Google Fiber updated their TOS at the end of 2013 to allow personal servers on residential internet without any extra fees or any extra service needed. FiOS has the speed and the bandwidth to support it as well, but it's currently not allowed under the Terms of Service. I'm looking to change the TOS to allow servers to be hosted through FiOS internet.

I recently changed from DirecTV to Fios Quantum TV.  There are definitely pros and cons to each mfr.'s DVR, but one thing I really miss is having the option to sort my recorded programs/List alphabetically.  Please add the option to sort "View Recordings" recorded shows list alphabetically.  Thanks!

For reasons that are not appropriate for this forum, I contact Verizon on a fairly frequent basis. With each call, I spend an inordinate amount of time navigating through the auto attendant and wind up  receive a message "we are attempting to connect you to the last agent you spoke with". The timeout waiting for "the last agent" is six minutes.

 

To date I can only think of one out of approximately fifteen calls where it would have been helpful to speak with the last agent.

 

On the surface it is a good idea to try to maintain continuity of service by connecting your callers to the last agent they spoke with. However, in practice, I have never successfully been connected to the last agent. So what this attempt at continuity of service actually provides is a waste of your customers time.

 

On to my suggestion… Add a choice to the auto attendant that allows the caller to DECIDE if they would like to be connected to the last agent instead of making the decision for your customers.

We recently rented an HD Set Top Box to add to our guest room to see how your interface differs from TIVO. Like TIVO you list all the channels so if you have to keep sifting through a bunch of dead channels, you have to either manually eliminate them in TIVO or add them to a Favorites channel from the set top box from Verizon.

 

I was wondering how difficult it would be to add a couple more filters such as preset channels which correlates to the packaged you currently have. In our case it would be the Select HD pacakage so only about 100 channels should be in that filter. You could also allow presets for the other packages and this could be a great way for consumers to see what they were missing.

 

I'm not a programmer so I have no idea how much work it would take to create these presets and if they could be upgraded when Verizon upgrades their channel list one a year. Probably not since you have grandfathered package system. Hmmm. Well, I still like the idea, but not sure if it's a good fit with the way Verizon currently deals with past and present package deals. Personally, I think grandfather has some advantages, but you can never upgrade without losing something and that seems counter intuitive.

 

Anyhow I might have already answered my own question here, but maybe I'm still offering food for thought in how packaged deals could be better maintained. Why not give everyone the same package and thus create a habitual consistent good value by keeping what works and eliminating what doesn't work. Instead of grandfather accounts, you focus on annually updating a fresh and vibrant channel listing that people will value. if everyone has the same packages, then you could create channel package listings as standard filters for the DVR and HD set top boxes.

Does Verizon have any plans to take advantage of the RVU technology.  This ultimately eliminates the requirement for STBs for every TV in the home.

 

The RVU Alliance exists to further the adoption and acceptance of the RVU protocol, a communications protocol, built substantially upon the pre-existing Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) standards. The RVU protocol is intended to solve the problems inherent in viewing live or recorded digital media remotely across a Home network. For example, an RVU compliant TV will be able to view music, photos & video from an RVU compliant media server. The RVU protocol specifically can deal with the passing of broadcast video coming from a Multichannel video programming distributor through a residential gateway or dedicated media server to other consumer electronic devices in the home. The RVU protocol includes a pixel-accurate Remote User Interface (RUI) technology that allows the media server to fully control the client user experience.

5ghz Router

Status: Acknowledged

Need to have a 5ghz router option!

Additional Ideas: Specific IP badwidth management and targeted wifi 'wormholes' to maintain a strong consistent signal to electronics opposed to a simple degrading radial degree.

I just submitted this to verizon who directed me here:

Verizon should make a page dedicated to where people can show off their Internet speed they are getting at their house with FIOS. Would help promote why to choose verizon over competitors..maybe.

I pay for 75mbps and I'm actually getting 75mbps now I used a new router and ran into my Verizon router. The Verizon issued router can only get as high as 50mbps download using a 2.4ghz wifi channel but consistently is around 35mbps download via wifi. According to Verizon Tech, the only way to get the full 75mbps that we pay for is to have a hardwire to the router. In attempts to regain the huge loss of mbps over wifi, I hooked up a Netgear N600 basic 2.4/5ghz router to my FiOS router and thereafter i did consistently get 50mbps on 2.4ghz via wifi...then when I switched it to the 5ghz channel my wifi speed skyrocketed to consist 75mbps download and 35mbps upload.

Verizon may want to give customers an upgrade router option so they can obtain the speed they are paying for. Pretty simple actually...Only a small production cost increase, which just like anything else these days, we are charged for the "upgraded option". resulting in nothing but increased customer satisfaction and increases profits.

For most non-tech customers, providing this will induce a perceived increased internet speed for same price increasing customer happiness and referrals. It's a win/win senario for everyone...you just have to give a little to gain a lot.

FORMULA :-)
Happy Customers = Better Reviews = Increased Marketshare = More Money.

I called to inquire about the benefits of upgrading my TV service to Quantum Enhanced.  I was told about the benefits of being able to recored more shows at a time and being able to fast forward and rewind live TV.  But I was not informed that I would be losing my Pandora Widget.

 

Sadly I only learned that after I had already upgraded.  It would have been nice to know that I would lose Pandora when I was inquiring about the upgrade.  Now I'm left wondering what else will I discover that I've lost.
