OK...anyone had this issue. When watching a recording from a room remote from the dvr (via Standard STB) the recording will, on it's own, jump into FF. You can't stop it without shutting off the STB. Also, when you use the skip forward button it works sometimes but other times rather than skip ity jumps into FF (and no, not hitting FF button by mistake). Verizon has reset the stb's & router numerous times. Even replaced dvr. After resets it will be OK for a short time then start again. DVR works fine when not using from remote stb. I'm about ready to go to TIVO.
Have the same problem. Along with momentary blackouts on the second room systems shows being recorded for only a couple minutes, or recordings starting in the middle of the show or the recording starting 5-15 minutes of sync with the show so I miss the ending. Didn't have this problem with my last system.
It's distressing to see that so many people are having the same problem. Why is FIOs not changing/upgrading their boxes?
There are two known issues that cause FF, both are firmware, so there isn't any hope of it getting better until the img1.6.2 firmware gets upgraded (hopefully later this year).
1). The skip forward button sometimes causes FF instead of skip forward 30 seconds. The appears to be completely random. Believe it or not that is actually an improvement what used to happen. At least now if you hit stop, the DVR will actually stop. On previous firmware turning the STB off was the only thing that worked.
2). Verizon supplied commercials. Verizon sells commercials, and there is apparently a problem sometimes when Verizon 'splices' in a commercial, it causes the DVR to go into FF. There is nothing random about this one, it will happen every time you hit one of these ''splices'. So when stop the DVR, back up, if you replay the bad 'splice' again, the DVR will go into FF again.
And I don't deny that is a major PIA. I don't think I have been able to get through a single 1 hour recorded program without having the DVR 'runaway'.
