Re: Pretty nice feature
said by prettynice :Yeah, had that feature with U-verse and it was really great. I will be very glad to have that feature once again.
I like how you can pause tv in any room, with our current FIOS multi room DVR you can only pause the TV in the room that has the DVR.
1TB is fine... presuming you actually want to watch what you've recorded within a reasonable amount of time (and then mark it for deletion as opposed to trying to maintain an archive of everything you've ever recorded/watched--but who does that...).
"...but ya doesn't hasta call me Johnson!"
Re: 1TB is fine... agreed, I think their is too many pack-rats in this forum
Re: Cisco Boxes
said by jdjr :Not sure how there gonna handle the Cisco issue, as of now, I haven't seen both Motorola and Cisco in the same area...
I wonder if it will be compatible with Fios homes that have Cisco boxes. If not, will Fios swap out all Cisco boxes for motorola ones?
I also wonder if this new system will count as one STB, or 5.
I know fios has a limit on the STB's you can have in your home.
It will have 5 seperate STB rental fees, one for the main server and one for each IP client. Pricing not available yet...
There is curently no limit on the amount of STBs connected in the home, just a very technical way to install multiple nodes.
The new VMS (Video Media Server) system is designed to co-op with exsisting STBs (non-VMS) and the capability to add additional servers if more than 4 IP clients are needed.
Re: Fios Multi-Room DVR
said by Fountainhead:Your "other" boxes are most likely less than 7000 series boxes (2500, 6200, or 6216). Try upgrading them to either a 7100, 7100p2, 7216, or a 7232. They all have more memory for the current guide image, and the seem to respond more quickly with navigation.
I dont have an issue with my current Fios multi-room DVR except it is waaaaay too slow on the other boxes.
It takes forever to respond.
With the exception of the main unit, its frustrating to the point of almost being unusable.
said by tmc8080:They offer up to 300Mbps dwnld now... on a Gigabit Fiber Over Ethernet line to your house.
IMO, 100/100mbit tier would be better for $70 a month than having local cloud storage;; this is the milestone Verizon needs to meet so that cableco's don't have any rest on offering not offering something closer to symmetrical speeds.
You need more than that?
