    PAIN. I did it again. I chatted and called Fios. Sigh.

    Sorry that you had such trouble. I have had FioS now for about 3 years with only 1 outage for internet and phone. I called technical support and the first level couldn't solve my problem but referred into a second level agent who solved the problem and called in back when it was fixed. Total...

    IMG 1.9 Release

    Super Dave - My 7232 only asked me when had to restart it to install the external drive. I shut it off just now and turned it back and it didn't pester me for the TV size. Maybe call Verizon support for help. One other cool feature of the DVR is the chapter feature (sort of like the auto...

    Wow - D* Finally Listened...

    I switched to FIOS about 3 years ago. One of the reasons I switched was because of the lack of premium channels - HBO and Cinemax choices were especially lame. Out of curosity, I checked the D* website and found that they have finally added the missing HBO and Cinemax channels! Too bad it...

    FIOS after a month

    I have both. The TiVo user interface is much easier to use and it offers expansion capabilities, which the FiOS DVR does not. However, release 1.9 of the Fios software will allow additional storage to be added, at which point I may retire the TiVo, as it cannot access Fios on demand features...

    D* Improves Premium Choices but...

    Yes, indeed, I know that they can't please all customers all of the time. But it just doesn't seem fair to customers to not give them most if not all what the subscription service offers. Plus I have built a nice library of HD titles from Cinemax sub channels...many of which aren't available...

    D* Improves Premium Choices but...

    I switched to FioS a while ago and I am glad I did but I still look around at what D* is up to. It looks like they have improved their premium offerings, especially on Showtime and Starz/Encore. D* still is lacking on HBO/Cinemax though. Can't figure out why they limit their HBO HD choices...

    Verizon Charges $3.50 Fee To Pay Them

    I have had only 1 internet related issue in 3 years and I talked to a pleasant American woman who solved the issue in about 5 minutes. I have been very pleased with my 35 Meg upload/download speeds for internet. Never had a phone problem once. TV service has been excellent - no downtime ever.

    VHS to DVD question

    I use a SIMA CT-2 to transfer my tapes. It works OK if not perfectly. There are lots of alternatives out there. Check out: Copy Enhancer, Copy protection Time base corrector eliminator, copy stabilizer

    Verizon Charges $3.50 Fee To Pay Them

    There is no charge if you use auto pay via credit card. Only if you pay "manually" online.

    Salt

    Yes Angelina is looking very good in this. The plot is preposterous but the action is non-stop. Recommended for action fans as well as Angelina followers.
