The other day a verizon telephone repair tech told me that I could use the Verzion Web Site to setup and record television programs (instead of using the remote control and the set top box). This feature could be used when I am at work for instances and wanted to set up a program to record.
This is ancient history. Has been avaialable for several years from the MyVerizon TV website. You need to enable it from your DVR before it will function (available under the Settings DVR sub-menu).
