Re: VHO7 Verizon notification states TV down for 1-2 hours....

Is The Hub HD 789 and HBO West HD 901 on the same QAM slot? Both are barely coming in for me (VHO7) for the last few days.

Another 2am outage and the same 3:03 ETA for channels to return.
This time it's only some of the cable HD channels. All the local broadcast channels are on.

All channels went out at 2am and the screen says ETA for restore is 3:03am.

Yep same message I saw last week. No new channels yet but they are probably getting all the QAM slots lined up and ready to add the new channels, that VHO5 has, in the coming weeks.

Strange....I watched TV until about 11 pm last night and never had a blip. Must have been local to your specific area.

I reported earlier in this thread that I had no phone service. I just got this email from Verizon:

Dear Customer,

Sincerely,
Verizon

After I disabled it in the settings , the 4x3 Screen still showed up for a bit. But now I do not hardly get it.

However, like today, When I turn my STB on, I can not change channels or see the Guide for 3-5 minutes.

Idk if that was just the case today, though. From what others have said in this thread.

I understand that, and after I did this to disable the 4x3 ad. It still showed up for another week afterwords. But It has calmed down within the last 3 days, or so.

Your response is confusing. You say now that you disabled the popup ad and it is not showing, but your prior post says "Instead, I have a 4x3 Huge Ad that pops up each time I turn my STBs on. " Which is it? Perhaps someone can offer you advice.

You can disable popups of this nature in the settings menu.

I was not notified of this.

However, I did notice this morning when i turned ny 7232 on, I could not change channels, or see the Guide at all. This went on for about 3-5 minutes.

Afterwords, I received a plethora of new Add icons. Maybe, they all needed time to load. IDK

Also, I do not hardly ever have the FIOS Home Screen anymore. Instead, I have a 4x3 Huge Ad that pops up each time I turn my STBs on. THey only way to remove them is by pressing EXIT. They do not time out.

To me, I'd rather have the Home Screen. At least if I did nothing, it would time out after 15 seconds or so.

My system monitor notified me last night that broadband was down from 12:38 to 2:01 am. This was in VHO8. Wasn't up to test if TV service was down too.

VHO7 is usually never first for anything, so I doubt it.

Verizon just notified on screen that programming will be down for about 1-2 hours in Central Jersey. I wish nycdave could comment but maybe it means more HD for us as I have my fingers crossed.....

BTW On Demand still works so hopefully they are adding new HD channels...

Edit Update 3am: Most QAM back in service (around 75%), checking if anything new...
