information bar on DVR

Message 11 of 18

How can one disable the information bar when watching a DVR?  It is especially annoying that it shows up now when you jump - it didn't used to.  And I don't need to see that I jumped 10 seconds each time.  There should be an option to disable this nonsense completely.

Try Menu>notifications>guide banner>disable.

I already had it set to 'disable'.  That apparently doesn't matter when watching DVR.

I already had the Now & Next Guide set to ZERO seconds because in the settings under zero it states “press ok to TURN OFF the Now & Next guide display during channel changes”. BUT IT DOES NOT WORK. It stayed up on the screen for a really long time under zero. So I changed it to 2 seconds and it goes away quicker.
I HATE THIS NEW FIOS because I spend so much time pushing exit, pushing info, pushing options, pushing settings and I never get to actually watch anything! I am looking at xfinity or anyone else at this point. FIOS SUCKS!

Agree. This information bar is a DISASTER:

 

- Way too big, Takes-up a THIRD of the screen, fonts are too large

- But the font for the current channel/network is too small.

- No logo for current channel. RIDICULOUS! This is an INFORMATION BAR!

- Too slow

- THIS IS AN INFORMATION BAR. NOT A GUIDE. SO PLEASE REMOVE THE SCHEDULED SHOWS.

- THERE IS NO SEPARATION.

- VERY POORLY DESIGNED. WHAT A DISASTER.

Not only is the Channel/network name in a small text size compared to everything else in the Information Bar (WITH NO CHANNEL LOGO), but it DOESN'T EVEN SPELL OUT THE CHANNEL!!!!! It's an abbreviation of the name. Also, it's SO SLOW. Whatever channel you're tuned to is delayed in the Information Bar. TOTALLY CONFUSING AND FRUSTRATING!!!!!! You people REALLY RUINED a decently working function.

According to a post in the thread about the IMG changes, there is a release rolling out as we speak. Check Sept 2020 Fios DVR and Guide Update solution post

The update that they released on Oct 23 doesn’t seem to have fixed much of anything to me, anyone else see changes???

 

Why does it have to be soooo hard to actually find the display settings that need to be fixed?

 

But most importantly...WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE NEW REMOTE CONTROLS THAT ACTUALLY WORK WITH THIS JUNK SYSTEM NOW???

 

RG625...Wow, I couldn’t have said it better myself. You hit the nail on the head on everything. Exactly what I was thinking. Thank you!
