"Currently Unavailable " and No Audio on various channels
JBR

Dear Verizon FIOS

I am absolutely amazed that literally 1000's of customers are experiencing the same ongoing issues.

I have the (3) 6416-2 DVR's with the1.6.1 release but I still get to reboot every couple of days.

Call CS which I have done a few times since Sept 2008 and they do a system reboot which doesn't provide any longer fix than if I reboot from home

I am asked to disconnect this and jiggle that.When I have a problem I get to become a Verizon Diagnostic Tech. I am told or it is inferred that the lack of reliable service or the failures are somehow related to my non Verizon

cable connections

All this and Oh Yeah I get to write you a check every month.

Thanks Verizon .........thanks for doing business with me

After having Fios TV one week I started getting "Channel Unavailable" on numerous stations that I normally receive. The stations remain "Currently Unavailable" for minutes or hours and then return. The problem is random and affects different channels. Other channels continue to work properly when I change channels. After several minues or hours when I return to a channel that was "Currently Unavailable" it will begin working again. This seems to be a line feed problem from the Verizon Fios System since it does not affect all channels at the same time. If it continues I will cancel the service and return to Direct TV since no one seems to be able to resolve the issue.

I too have had the disappearing audio dilemma.  I fix it by going up one channel then back.

 

The CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE issue has propped its head a couple of times then quickly corrected itself.

I have also been getting Currently Unavailable lately very randomly. It's very annoying, sometimes 4 or 5 channels in a row. Sometimes comes up after watching a channel for 10 or 20 seconds. Is it something I did?

These issues are software bugs and Verizon knows about them.  If it continues to happen, call them and ask for some credit on your account for the inconvenience.   Smiley Wink

My CUrrently Available" problem is on the PBS channels (23,24,523, adn two otehrs I do nto have with me now,  and also on 513.

My response fromtechincal non-support as been similar to reset everything.  Thten works for ten minutes ot a day then returns.  Of cousrse the big problem is when you programmed to record something you really want, and then come back and find two recording of 7 or 8 seconds each becasue the siganl was Currently Available.

Very tempted to call Cmcast and then Verixon will lose more than FiosTV cusotmer as my internet will go too.

Anyone get any real service?

I am also having the "Channel Unavailable" problem. If I reboot the box it is okay for only a short time and then returns. I have not called customer service, I know they'll just tell me to unplug the box..wait 20 seconds..okay plug it back in. Also having the sound dropping out occasionally as well. These are the reasons I left Comcast...

This is one of the most frequently-cited problems and is usually attributed to the famous HDMI handshake protocol. (The technical people are working this). I recommend a review of some of the previous posts for more details - just go to the bottom of this page and enter "HDMI currently unavailable" in the search feature for a selection of posts and historical perspective. Thank you.

I to had the same problem with 23,24,469,470,471 and others.  The problem is we had bad coax in the house.  We replaced the old coax and all is well.

If there's the old R9 coax in your home that cable companies used back in the old days, it MUST be replaced with R6 coax that has the thicker middle insulator.
