    IMG 1.9 Release

    So far the whole family likes it. Even the 6 year old understands how nice the feature is. One thinng I have noticed, and it may have been in the release notes somewhere, is that the chaptering on a DVR program only works if you are watching the program on the DVR that it was recorded on.

    Disgruntled DirecTV customer.

    Agree with all of you. I had Comcastfor years then Dish for two. I switceh to FIOS almost two tyears ago and never looked back. I did not have a big problem with Dish but as Super Dave said the picture quality and price for the triple bundle is unbeatable. With the new changes in 1.9 the Dvr...

    thanks Sat Gal. I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up he next ay. The bad news is that I was not really prepared to get the old shows off the DVR and do the set up. Took a few extra days but the set up was nice and easy. So far I love it. I think my VHO (11) might be next to get the...

    So how is FIOS TV & DVR?

    I can only speak for the FIOS DVR....20 hours of HD recording capacity. You can use Multi Room to watch HD in another room if you have an HD box on the other end. I would prefer that you could use Multi Room from DVR to DVR so you could increase the capacity a little bit. The interface is ok...

    So how is FIOS TV & DVR?

    It is really a personal preference but I made the switch from E to FIOS. The HD is excellent and the SD is pretty good as well. The DVR will take some getting used to unless you go with Tivo. My family likes the premium channels so that woks to our advantage as alot of them are in HD.

    Comcast Tech Support Phone Number

    Thanks for the response. Turns out it was a powered splitter that was causing an issue with the box. The tech did not charge for the visit which was nice of him.
