FIOS STB improved? Compare with Dish?
Posted 21 March 2009 - 02:34 AM
Has this been improved? I'm considering FIOS and the equipment has been the biggest deterrent for me. I currently have E* VIP 622 and it has been the best DVR/STB I have ever used. How do they compare with each other?

There is no delay problem I have noticed so far. Channel changes are instant and response is instant. Faster than the 622.
The dvr is not as nice as the 622, gui is different, may be as nice after I get used to it. They charge too much to lease the box, not much I can do about that. I like the service the pq is great, the hd offerings are tremendous.
