1.6.1 is being skipped. It was distributed in Oregon and Washington a few months ago and had so many problems that Verizon stopped distributing it and decided to develop and deliver 1.6.2. Everything I have read about 1.6.2 indicates that it is a good release, fixing a number of problems.

 

I can't comment on the schedule, I have no idea about the rollout plan, other than I bet where I am will be last or next to last since we were the first to get FiOS TV.

With the SD override turned to off.. wouldn't the SD channel default to 480i?

ok I have installed complete. The SD Picture still with the 1.6.0 in NYC is slightly improved from last time on the HD Set. Still waiting for the upgrade on 3/24 in Staten Island. I have all channels set to 1080 with the SD Override off. Id rather not watch the stretch and settings to 480 I or 480 P make things worse. I have the 7100 HD boxes, last time I had either the 6200 or 6416, whichever one is not the DVR.  MSG, MSG Plus, ESPN News, URGE Radio, Weather Channel, Broadcast Stations , Weather Scan Local have much improved since I last had FIOS in the Summer 2008. URGE Audio is still low. See what happens and how things look on 3/24 when staten island gets the upgrade. Live Knicks on MSG will be the first test for me tonight in Detroit. It was kind of nice seeing MSG on ESPN HD for the Big East, hopefully well see the Rangers and Knicks there soon in HD.

How could it default to 480i if you have it off? You have to specify 480i if that's what you want, if you put it on off, it will be whatever you set your HD's at 720p or 1080i

Just an f.y.i.  My FIOS was installed about 2 months ago.  Settings reveal that I have 1.6.1  I live in Washington.  I have no problem with it.

So will turning it off automatically upscale native SD signals to 1080i of the video mode is set to that?

Yes, but I'd rather put it on 480i and let my TV upscale it.
