Do you know if the size and duration of the channel banner can be changed?

Just to clarify - the display duration of the banner can be changed, not the banner size.

nycdave, do you know if the audio driver issue on 7XXX boxes (the one that caused "stuttering/distortion" on Pandora and Verizon Media Manager streaming) was fixed?

The duration is configurable when changing channels and when Info is pressed. Two separate settings.

There is no change with regards to this size of the Info Bar (that I see) but it might be a bit smaller. Not sure. The Info Bar as well at the IMG has gone through a visual re-work.

Numerous Firmware updates have been made to address the numerous audio and video issues. I need more time to see what is fixed and still an issue.

Pandora *should* be fixed in this release.

Lets hope you don't uncover any issues - this release was extensively tested as usual, and it looks to be very stable so far.....(let the bashing start)..

My first reaction is: WOW! Since a lot of what I asked for is in it

Nothing is perfect... But I'm trying!

Did they fix the bookmark images ?

Sometimes they work, sometimes they dont.

Did they fix the multiroom DVR issue where you couldn't "resume" a paused or stopped recording in another room? That feature has been super flaky since 1.9 was released. I almost always had to start over and then fast forward back to where I was when resuming in another room. Very irritating...

PS. It should be noted that this was mainly an issue for recordings that were still in progress...

Good, was hoping they would darken the theme.

Why oh why will they not make it smaller? They obviously know people think its too big. At least the whole bottom third is useless.

Will the update fix recordings prior to the update? Several movies have jitters, audio/video freezes. Would like to see the movie 'whole'!

are you given a choice in color scheme now or did they just force everyone into this new grey scheme?...I don't mind the current 1.9a color scheme at all but also think grey might be nice as well as long as it's not too dark...the current layout makes everything easy to see and differentiate

Well you are stuck with the colors! Everyone complained so much, they were given a downgrade to the 60s look in my opinion. I hope they NEVER upgrade the Cisco hardware. If you don't like the colors, you can go to »forums.verizon.com/ and complain to malcolm_stanley.»forums.verizon.com/t5/notes/priv ··· d/102843

why can't they release this firmware for those that have 1.9a?...why is it limited to only 1.9.1 for?...the changes in the software can't be that drastic can it?

1.9.1 is the upgrade from 1.9A.

maybe I should rephrase ...I meant how come a firmware update cannot be released for those with 1.9a installed that corrects the audio/video issues many of us have been experiencing post-1.9a update?...why is 1.9.1 the only solution?

I always asked why we cant just have a color schemes setting. Why do colors have to have anything to do with the 1.9a to 1.9.1 bug fix upgrade. I could understand guide resolution, but why colors. If they were going to have color changes, there should have been a selection of classic and modern, like I sugested for 1.9!

Then release it slowly so not everyone calls with questions or problems at one time. One DAC at a time. Normally a slow spin first (a small number people only), than a week or two later a fast spin to the rest of the people in that DAC.

Because 1.9.1 fixes all of the known issues with 1.9A, so 1.9.1 is the solution. How else do you think these issues get fixed?

Unfortunately, the streaming audio problem is NOT fixed. Pandora and Verizon Media Manager streaming audio is NOT fixed. I've been waiting since October for these things to be fixed and they are not.
I think the color scheme is terrible! It's old school and depressing. Lack of gradiants, dark backgrounds, etc. show a total lack of creativity. Other companies can get it right on this, but Verizon can't. It is so unfortunate. 1.9 was WAY better. Complaints are popping up on other forums already.

UPDATE: got the slow spin. Will be able to give a more subjective opinion upon seeing it and the guide differences from 1.9 version.

Forgot my VHO and DAC. Got the 1.9.1 update this morning in Redondo Beach, CA (los angeles). Its already been said, but the new color scheme is way too dark. Do not like. Then again, sure I will get used to it fairly quick, can't please everyone.

Malcolm, I will provide via private mail on the Verizon forums, not here. Although I recognize your first name, I won't give out that type information to a screen name on this forum.

I started watching a recording in progress on my 7100. I punched in a channel like 260 and then went back to the DVR menu on my 7100 and hit resume.

Is this what you mean? If not, I can try it.
