Others have posted comments in another forum within the last day or so of a noted significant improvement in SD quality with setting of the SD picture to 480P as opposed to 480i.  Mine has always been set to such and I guess as a result I've never appreciated the lesser picture quality.

The upgrade is done by an automatic download by VHO (video hub office).  This allows Verizon to update the entire footprint in manageable increments (in other words, control call center volume for complaints Smiley Wink ).  This is usually done in the early morning hours (3 - 5 AM) so as to not disturb the majority of viewers.

 

The update can be verified in the settings menu and sometimes there is a message sent.  Also, all boxes will have rebooted so if you leave your STB on you will probably find it off in the morning.  Another clue would be if you changed the audio compression from HEAVY to anything else, at least with the last version, it will have reverted to HEAVY and probably scare the dickens out of you Smiley Surprised

 

BTW - Not a Verizon employee, but still trying to help.

I use aloe so I can't be burned 🙂

 

Joe we're still working to resolve everything I'm sure it will eventually have a greater impact later on down the road.

Techman28... Is there any way of knowing how the test is progressing?  Can you keep us updated here? When do you think the rest of the

 country might see the update?
