Does anyone know if Verizon is coming out with a competitor to Comcast's X1 DVR? Seems crazy that we don't have the ability to record more than 2 shows, but comcast now does.

Just stumbled upon this thread and have to say short that as former Florida resident (Ft.Lauderdale area) I have to say I was with others in the bushes with slow local service provider. Comcast in SE Florida is a joke with DSL cable speeds except for first couple of minutes of use where they boost you to advertised amazing internet speed. Besides them there is nothing much else to choose from.

Even more I became happy resident of New England with light speed Fios cable services which I use for last couple of years. Hope they will wire south part of my home state soon for the benefit if many users longing for fast and reliable service down there.

Any Verizon people in this thread? Wondering if any HDMI related changes were involved in the Tuesday Feb 18th software update to the settop boxes?

So Fox25 may be dropped on Thursday by FiOS according to the scroll they have running. Looks like negotiations for renewing the carriage agreement is coming down to the wire....

I noticed that and it certainly sucks. They shouldn't be holding us hostage, we're paying enough.

FiOS is *NOT* dropping Fox 25. Cox which owns Fox25 is pulling it off FiOS TV service.

If it does get dropped, FiOS customers should still have access to FOX NOW mobile app and online streaming of shows.

Again, this is not Verizon's doing. Cox didn't have to do this on Thanksgiving but they did - they pulled the station off FiOS, and not the other way around..

And Verizon isn't authorized for Fox Sports Go, either. Nice.

Signal strangh is DOUBLE that of WBIN

Also Daystar on 25 is missing but it is a center cut of 293

Here comes the copy protection....flag set to "copy once" for all Fox channels (except local Fox 25) for me. Fox Sports 1, Big Ten Network, Nat Geo, etc.

May have to re-work my HTPC setup to accommodate or see if Comcast is doing the same.

did anyone else just lose all of their mappings on their HTPC?
it looks like FIOS dropped all of the SD channels in the clear, and all the HD channels changed. at least, thats what I can find now.

and, its been a while since I set this up, but the silicondust channel list is gone?
