Well, I've had FiOS broadband for 2 years now. I recall setting up port forwarding on the DLink router to have been a straightforward matter, maybe 15 minutes for 4 Replays. Last week I finally got FiOS TV and with it came a brand new router [private branded Verizon]. This router features a coax connection that is used by the STBs for guide data and other communications with the mother ship [a single cable to a splitter on the video line handles all STBs this side of the ONT - Optical Network Terminal].
However, setting up port forwarding was anything but straightforward, it took me over 3 hours to figure it out and make it work. If there hadn't been IVS tester on poopli, I'd still be fiddling around with the settings. The router manual was of no help, and it was strictly a matter of try this, try that, lather, rinse, repeat.
