you may want to try one of the two auto fixes for the TV
Or use the TV menu
and go down to customer support, and then in home agent and then auto correct set top boxes.
Tried that too, still having problems. Must press RC button 3-4 times before the set top box will acknowledge the RC. TV works on 1st try. RC's worked perfectly up until new release today.

People with 6416's that want to upgrade, should be doing so at www.verizon.com/fiostvcentral
Log in at that website and then click on my tv and then set top boxes, and on the right, you'll see a banner ad that says want more from your DVR or something to that affect.
fill out the info and you'll get an email with a link for the upgrade.
The above procedure on the website seems to work. For me however, the way I did it was:
1. Log into MyVerizon
2. Click on the My STB tab.
3. At the bottom of the list of STBs, click on See Full List. (for whatever reason, this step was necessary to see the ad, it may not be now)
4. To the right of the list of STBs you should see an ad titled "Want more from your FiOS DVR?", click on the Learn More button.
5. You should now see a page where you can enter your info.
That is the way I ordered mine, ordered it one week got the email telling me I qualified for the new DVR the next. Submitted the email about noon on Wed. last week, the DVR was delivered (to my neighbor by mistake!) the next day around noon. Keep in mind that Verizon will charge you $39.99 to order this way.
Another option, if you have a Verizon store nearby, is to contact them to see if they have any 7232s, and if they do see if they will let you swap. I have read that doing it that way eliminates (or may eliminate) the $39.99 charge, but I don't know that for sure. Or of course you could just go into the store with your old DVR and see what happens.
I had my old 6416 for 5 1/2 years, worked great, but the new 7332 seems just fine, at least so far, certainly much more space. Plus whenever Verizon delivers the new 1.9 level of the IMG to my VHO I am ready to take full advantage.

I agree about the new guide. The default color is difficult to see. Is there any way to change the color scheme to something more pleasing to the eye.
Agree completely with the guide color scheme. Not enough contrast between background color and text color. Especially on the search screen - almost unreadable with aging eyes. Should add a few 'themes' to choose from, or at least add the option for a larger font size (I'm suprised these aren't already available under the Accessability menu item).
