The time on my DVR and 2 other STBs never changed for Daylight Savings.  I have attempted the re-boot but no luck., time still incorrect  The guide matches the time so all programs are recording but would like time to be correct.

 the auto correct option.   it's different than a reboot.    menu>customer support>in home agent>set top box auto correction.

That worked, but still shouldn't have had to look it up and perform that step. Should change automatically.

I have 3 boxes that are all running 18 minutes slow. It's not like that is even a DST glitch as I'd expect that to be exactly an hour off, not 18 minutes.

Looks like they just reset something because they are all now showing the correct time.

I had the wrong time, after daylight savings began yesterday.

Although, it is unthinkable that a smart devices can't update its time from a NTP server today...

to fix it, I had to do the following, mind it a simple reboot didn't fix this issue.


I had to go to Menu \ Customer Support \ Top support Tools \ Fix FIOS TV issues


buried deep, but worked.

Our set top boxes have not updated for the time change on Sunday(either one)....I have unplugged and reset them, they still display the incorrect time.  How to update?

Under “My Support Cases” you will find a link to the private board where you and the agent may exchange information. This should be checked on a frequent basis as the agent may be waiting for information from you before they can proceed with any actions.

To ensure you know when they have responded to you, at the top of your support case there is a drop down menu for support case options. Open that and choose "subscribe".

I think it's worth pointing out that this is happening pretty widely across the Verizon FiOS network.  It happened to my set top boxes and two different places I've been this week.  


The instructions on the website are outdated.  Please, Verizon, update them and, even better, find a way to update the time on all your set-top boxes so that they don't have this happen next time around 🙂
