Upon my request, Verizon sold me television service to go along with my internet service. I do not have a Verizon router, I use my own equipment.
They didn't tell me their Set Top Boxes (STB) would not activate without a Verizon router. Is anyone able to answer whether they can activate the STB's at their store and then I can install them in the house and see them function? Or, can I activate them at a neighbor's house on Verizon equipment, then bring the gear home to install?
I know the guide, VOD, and some other services will not work without further mods.
The same mods for guide, etc, are also needed for activation. There is a post at the top of the forum that talks about the mods required to use a non Verizon router with FiOS stb.
