Re: [DVR] No Cloud DVR on FIOS?
Weird, we used VOD a lot when I had Fios and I don't remember it being bad with lag. Then again, OOL is so bad that it probably made any lag I had with Fios seem like nothing. I press a button (FF, RW, Channel Guide, etc) and usually takes anywhere from 4-12 seconds for the TV to respond. Makes it almost unusable. I was on a 2yr contract with Fios and all the deals were coming to an end and the price kept going up until I was paying around $210 a month. I jumped to OOL and am paying $155 a month. TV services kinda suck but I can't see going back for $55 a month for better VOD. Hopefully a good deal will come through soon and I can switch back.
Now the other problem you mentioned is LAG, and this is not going to go away, anyone who has ever used FiOS VOD has seen the lag when you try to FF or RW, you only get 1 speed and when you push play it does not start where you requested it but instead a few seconds later. This is going to happen no matter what you do since you are no longer sending the single to a local box but instead to a remote box across the internet, luckily this should not be the case if the box is inside the house which is the concept Verizon is heading towards.
