For the past three mornings my two boxes refreshed themselves on the initial turn on for the tv that day. I have reset the boxes via the internet and had Verizon reset them. I am connected via HDM1 cable. For the remainder of the day, the boxes work fine. Anybody else having these problems. I live in Onondaga County NY.
Only our DVR is having a similar issue the past 2-3 days. Whenever you turn it on the FIOS Software Updating Screen for about 1-2 minutes, sometimes longer then the channel comes on. We haven't had anything set to record yet so we are not sure if this is going to affect the recording of any shows. Our other HD Set top boxes are not having the issue. The one HD STB did have messages that the VOD menu, etc. was updated on 06/22/12 I am not sure if that is the issue or not. The Tivo we have using cable cards is having some pixelation but restarting it seemed to correct it.
Same here - STB giving software update message each time it's turned on after being off for long periods of time. Just got off the phone with Verizon tech support and was told this is going to happen for the life of FiOS. Does this make sense to anyone??? I couldn't get a straight answer as to why the TV won't go straight on.
