Re: [IMG] IMG 1.9.1

Nascar,

I received the update yesterday in VHO 5 and while watching a recording on a remote STB, the timeline stopped while I was watching. I started watching the show 40 minutes into it, and the time stopped when I got to that point. I thought this was going to be fixed. Anyways, nice posting on the fixes and enhancements. I think the software team did a great job.

Does the chapters feature work for anyone while viewing a recorded program from the remote STB? The DVR is a 6416 and the remote STB is a 7100. It did not work with 1.9 but I have not had a chance to check it yet, now that we got 1.9.1 in MA this morning.

Sadly, it wasn't fixed. Or put the way 1.8 was. They know about it. Hoping in the next rev.

A few things. Just got 1.9.1 over night, it started at 1:50am and finnished up about 2:28am.
The fonts (lettering) in the program guide now seem blurry with what might be ghosting but just a little. The orange color now appearing in the station avatars on the far left side appears offensive to my blue-yellow/red-green color blind eye's, meaning it sort of hurts to focus on it and lastly, is NECN HD new? Thats just at a glance, I will play with it more later.

The colors are very dark and indistinguishable from each other. They all look basically the same to me. I don't really pay attention to the colors anyway, but now it's more noticeable that they all seem to be black and drab. Maybe to satisfy everyone, they should go back to no colors. The colors throw you off more and I bet most people don't even know what the colors even represent.

I hate the new colors....

Too muted

1. hard to distinguish different types of programing in the guide based upon color
2. hard to distinguish between previously viewed and unviewed shows on the DVR.

Who did they use as beta testers, colorblind people?

I like the new colors and find them much easier to read. I think this was a nice job by Verizon.

One annoying bug I found is when you are scrolling down through the guide, you can't go past 695 (E! HD). The ability to scroll down is locked here. You have to manually enter a channel to get past this.

The mod locked the thread on this topic but should have left it open. I don't think this is a bug. I have had 1.9.1 for some time now and never had this issue until today. Suddenly you cannot scroll past E on the guide. You have to manually enter three channels further down the list to continue. you have to skip two VOD channels and one other, ABC Family I think it is. Then you can scroll, either one channel at a time or by "page". Doesn't matter if you are scrolling up or down the list. Every day is a new adventure with Verizon.

No problem today for me here in Keller, TX (same VHO). I tried with both my Favorites and the Full Guide, no issue scrolling past 695 (which is Comedy.TV, not E!HD which is 696). I did not test this earlier in the day, so I don't know if I had the problem in the past. But either they have fixed the problem or something strange is going on........

My sister has the issue trying to scroll past 695 in MA but I dont, even though I live only three miles away.

She has a 6416 and I have a 7232. She has MRDVR and I have just a single room DVR. Maybe some of this matters...just putting it out there.

Im in Wakefield and have no problem scrolling all the way through the guide both in my favorites and the full guide using the 7232-2.

Have ya all tried unplugging your DVR's and letting them reboot, and or unplugging the router and letting it reset?
Dont know if it matters but cant see where it will hurt.

Yes, the white lettering is a little blurry, like they're now almost too bright compared to the rest of the dark background. Otherwise I think the colors are good.

When we first got the update a couple of months ago my first impression was that the new colors were horrible and dark.... But now I am used to them and like them - they don't seem dark to me anymore and I think are easier to read then the 1.9 colors.

1.9.1 Build 14.47 New Features:
20. DVR - Select a program to record and it will only record on the DVR that can record without conflict. If there is a conflict then the program will set the reminder on the DVR. So yes, this will look at your DVR’s and determine the one it can record on.

This is a great feature, however, they didn't take it far enough. That option works when you're recording individual shows manually but NOT with "series". If you try to set up 3 different series at the same start time you get the old yellow triangle telling you there's a conflict. No other DVR available option

Unless I'm missing something here.

I want two features added:

1- When you hit the size, tell you what the size actually is.

2- When you are on a non-DVR, and you do upcoming showings - you should be able to set the upcoming showing to record instead of just set a reminder.

#2 you can do now, you have been able to do it ever since 1.9
#1 what do you mean? Size of what?

#2 only shows me Set Reminder. see here: »forums.verizon.com/t5/Share-Your···p/428777

#1 - the # key on the remote changes the screen size - but you have to cycle through them all - doesn't tell you the aspect ratio.

What box do you have that doesn't show record? I think only the 2500-1 & 2500-2's can't. All the others can including the 2500-3

On my 7100 that is NOT a DVR - if I am watching a show, I can hit record and it will get recorded.

However, if I am halfway through it, and I want to record it from the start - I select the Info screen and select Upcoming showings. I can not set record from that.

Well, it's not going to record from the start if you are halfway thru on another box, but I don't know if you can record the rest.

You need to read and understand what I am saying.

You know how you can search for next air dates of a show? Lets say a movie has started - so I search for the next air date - and it turns out to be 3 days from now at 1am.

I can not set a recording to that. All I am given is the option to set a reminder.

I don't know how else to explain this to you.

I think I know what he means ....
Ever since I got the update, If I hit record on the 7100's remote in the guide , I get a remider icon come up.
I have to select it again, hit record, verfy I want to record on the DVR , & then re-enter to delete the remider ....
