I don't know, my wife and I noticed the update last night (VHO 15a) and we think it's pretty good.  We like the new look and the new functionalities/improvements in the UI are enough to make up for any visual shortcomings.  The DVR functions alone read like a wish list from all of us, so I actually think they did a good job here.  

 

One question: how do you enable native pass-through?  I can't find an option for that anywhere.  Is it on by default?

Joe -

 

 

Appreciate your posting regarding issues, but it might be helpful to quote the original post you are answering.  I know it doesn't directly affect me (as I haven't posed any questions) but it sure makes it hard to figure out what the original question was and for someone else to possibly chime in with a suggestion or solution.

 

Again, great that you are taking the time to post and help - keep up the great work.

If a forum member gives an answer you like, give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem.

People with 6416's can upgrade to a larger capacity DVR at www.verizon.com/fiostvcentral 

  1. Sign in at FiOS TV Central (if you’re not already Signed in)
  2. Click on My TV
  3. Click on Set Top Boxes
  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. Fill out the information and you'll get an email with a link for the upgrade
  6. There is a one-time exchange fee of $39.99 to receive this new DVR.

As a new FiOS TV subscriber, it will be interesting to me to see how Verizon supports their (probably) long time customers that have older equipment.  This is leased equipment, not owned, so it seems to me since an IMG was released that the older boxes cannot take advantage of, the monthly lease fee should be lowered, and/or a discounted upgrade should be made available.

 

I'm just sayin'

Is there a tentative rollout schedule by market that could be shared?  I realize it's partly dependent upon fixing any glitches in the initial rollouts.

Hey Lina,
I am just assuming here since I do not have the 7xxx box and do not have the new guide. However, from what I read there is an option to change the guide from widescreen(HD) to SD so it will look better on your TV. Please check the option on your TV. Hope this helps.

There is also the option of selecting CLASSIC VIEW in the settings menu which will sort of return the look to 1.8.  First thing (as amoon70 suggested) is to set the graphics to 4:3 (SD) not the default 16:9 (HD).

Are we going to be able to tell what shows we have already viewed on the DVR? I sometimes come back a week later and can't figure out what the last episode I saw was.
