Unfortunately, I am unable to read the menu with the new TV Format. I was advised that there have other complaints that the print is too small to read but nothing can be done to correct the problem. I replied that I would have to change providers and was advised, yes, if you want a menu you are able to read. So much for people with vision problems.
If you have a 6 series first gen box, you need to call your local Fios store for a newer version. Other than that, set the guide options to SD and it should be easier to read for you.
Another option people seem to be forgetting is Tivo with a cablecard. Yes, the basic premiere unit costs 75 dollars and the monthly fee is about the same as paying Fios for an hd dvr, but you may find that the best receiver to use for people who have vision problems, and many consider it the best dvr on the market anyway. I would rather go that route that switch back to an inferior provider.
