So I had a S1 DirecTivo long ago and was very happy. But we started having tree-related signal problems a couple of years ago, and when Verizon FIOS TV rolled into town last year I decided to switch. This meant bye-bye to our beloved DirecTivo (but hello to a new HD LCD!). We've been using the FIOS HD DVR for a while now, and while awkward and difficult to use, it has been "good enough". Then Verizon rolled out a major "upgrade" to the software last month and we've had no end of problems- bad recordings, hangs / reboots, and a whole new host of usability issues. Anyway, it's gotten bad enough that I'm fed up to the point that I'm willing to cough up the money for an HD Tivo. But coming to this forum has really spooked me... the mysterious pixellation problems that appear months after installation really are making me reconsider. Especially given that lots of folks talk about moving TO the verizon dvr to cure their problems (yikes!) Does anyone here have a sense of how many FIOS folks are seeing pixellation issues? Is this a small percentage (but enough to collect a lot of problems in a forum like this), or something that most FIOS users see?
