    FIOS Menu/Updated Programming

    OK, I gave it some time and now I will post. I was really pissed last weekend when, after recording 11 hours of HD content of new shows before the writers strike, I turned on my set and box and low and behold everything from Friday night back was gone. No, not completely gone. It still showed...
