I was told there would be an update in Richmond VA on March 17th. I've had nothing but problems since switching to FIOS!!!!  This update is my last resort before cancelling my contract!! If this doesn't fix my issues then I'm going to Direct TV

I wonder also.  Many of them might have been resolved in 1.6.2.

I never saw an answer to this question - when will Pittsburgh receive the update? I just has Fios installed 3 days ago and last night had my first ' channel currently unavailable' experience. If the 1.6.2 update fixes it, let's have it.

As yet another point of reference, Remote DVR now works in 1.6.2 [VHO6 - Burlington MA] with my non-ActionTec router (Linksys WRT150N w/DDWRT) as the primary router without any special configuration.

If you look at the times of our posts they were within minutes of each other.  I think they passed each other in cyberspace.  🙂

I have noticed one small glitch in the giddy-up of 1.6.2 with the 6416 in that when watching a recording and using the skip ahead button some times instead of skipping ahead the DVR goes into slow motion FF. Interesting!

I have not experienced this. But I still experience the hiccup on Skip ahead and Skip back.  I was hoping this was corrected but it still seems as bad as 1.6.0.

Maybe the next release will fix it?  Fingers crossed.

Not sure if this might be a dead thread... but I'll give it a go. I reported audio problems today (Central Jersey) which I've had since my FIOS install last month. I'm so very disappointed with the FIOS' audio--inconsistent volume across the channels, the pops, the clicks, the burps...but I really don't want to switch back to being a Comcast victim...er...customer.

 

Unlike many of you, the audio problems irritate me more than the video or surfing issues; I listen to the programs more than I watch them. So if someone could delineate what audio issues are fixed with 1.6.2...

Oh, and I need to note that I was told today, 4/7/09, that 1.6.2 was 'just rolling out now' and Vz would be starting in California...??

A confused tech, or something else going on...?

Very confused tech. The 1.6.2 rollout started months ago, and is scheduled to finish next week (4/14) in TX (VHO1) and CA (VHO3). 

Horray me!!! All of these upgrades are coming to me next week.

I don't know how to edit a previous message so I'll just enter this reply.  My apologies for confusing this thread with the one called just "1.6.2" where my other post that I thought was missing is located, as noted above.  I'm sorry to have misled anyone who read my previous post in this thread.  I encourage anyone looking at this thread to also read the other one if you haven't already.  I will reiterate my complaint, however, that the 1.6.2 update has done nothing to improve my SD picture quality through my HD box.  This has been a problem since I first got FIOS TV back in October.  I'm not sure how it is that Verizon can't get this right.  They've had at least a year since the first complaints of poor picture quality showed up in these forums.  My level of frustration right now is very high and I seriously doubt that I will continue to be a Verizon customer, at the first opportunity I have to switch.
