The Verizon FiOS Difference: Understanding your new fiber-optic connection Now that you’re hooked up, here’s how it works. While traditional telephone and cable TV networks use mostly copper wire and coaxial cable to deliver services, Verizon FiOS is 100% fiber-optic, bringing you state-of-the-art voice, TV and high-speed Internet service. With Verizon FiOS, your home is now ahead of its time. Verizon FiOS uses hair-thin strands of glass to carry information in the form of laser-generated pulses of light. When those pulses of light reach your home through our network, they are converted into electrical signals in a box installed outside your home called the Optical Network Terminal (ONT). Once the signals have been converted, your home’s existing telephone wiring and coaxial cable carry voice and TV signals to your phones and TV sets. Either CAT5 or a combination of CAT5 and coaxial cable is used to carry Verizon FiOS Internet signals. Similarly, when information is sent from your home, those electrical signals are changed into light pulses in the ONT so they can travel to their destinations. Unlike traditional self-powered telephone or cable television service, your Verizon FiOS service depends on your home’s power source.

Please note: The ONT has a power cord that goes into your home through the ONT Power Supply Unit, where it plugs into an existing standard electrical outlet.

ONT Power Supply Unit (OPSU): Finding your electricity source Your ONT requires electricity to operate all Verizon services provided on the FiOS network. The OPSU supplies power by connecting your ONT directly to an electrical outlet in your home or garage. The OPSU contains a single indicator light that tells you if electrical power is present. If the indicator light is dark, electricity is not flowing from the outlet to the ONT. In normal operation, the light should be green. The ONT requires very little power to operate. In fact, the amount of power needed is as little as what it would take to operate a couple of night-lights.

To ensure connectivity to the Verizon FiOS network, please make sure your ONT Power Supply Unit is plugged in at all times.

7

Battery Backup Unit (BBU): Continuous power when you need it In case your ONT Power Supply Unit is accidentally unplugged — or in the event of a commercial power failure — a backup battery has been installed to provide you with power for voice service for approximately four hours. Your BBU was installed in a location in your home or garage where it can be easily monitored — most likely near the OPSU. The BBU is connected directly to the ONT to provide backup power if it’s needed. In addition, the BBU contains a series of indicator lights that tell you whether your service is being powered by your home’s electricity or the battery. The BBU also tells you when the battery needs replacing. The average life of your battery is between one and four years, depending on the average temperature of the environment. When your battery does need replacing, you can purchase a sealed lead-acid battery at major electronics outlets and home improvement stores.

BBU Indicator Lights: The meaning behind the signals Your BBU has four distinct lights to signify certain conditions, as described below. Please take a moment to review them. System: Green — Operating normally. Blinking Green — Battery is going through a self-test. Yellow — ONT is operating from the battery and the battery is discharging. Blinking Red — Battery is fully discharged and needs to be replaced. Please note: Battery disposal standards and requirements vary by state. If you need to replace the sealed lead-acid battery in your Battery Backup Unit, please check the following Environmental Protection Agency resources for proper disposal instructions: visit www.epa.gov/epr/products/batteries.html or call the EPA directly at 1-800-424-9346.

8

Battery: Green — ONT is operating normally. BBU is on standby. Yellow — Battery is either recharging or conducting a self-test, or the BBU is providing power to the ONT. Red — Battery is low. When this light comes on, approximately two hours of talk time remain. Replace Battery: Red — Battery needs to be replaced. Auxiliary (currently not available): Green — Auxiliary Battery Pack (ABP) is connected to the BBU. Off — No ABP is connected.

BBU Audible Alarms: Listening to help you troubleshoot Your BBU is also equipped with an audible alarm to inform you of problems with your BBU. The alarm sounds for two seconds and then is silent for 58 seconds. The conditions listed below are the potential reasons for the audible alarm. You can use the alarm in combination with the indicator lights to resolve your BBU issue. Low Battery — Alarm is silenced if the battery voltage goes above 12V (electrical power has returned), the battery is fully discharged or the battery is removed from the BBU. Foreign Voltage — Alarm is silenced once the foreign voltage has been properly removed. Replace Battery — Alarm is silenced when the battery is removed. Overcurrent — Alarm is silenced once the overcurrent has been properly removed.

Since you are responsible for the management of your battery, it is very important that you familiarize yourself with these light signals and audible alarms, to ensure that you have backup power if it’s needed. Please note: In the event of a power outage, only your telephone service will receive power. Your backup battery will not operate your FiOS TV service or Internet service.

Troubleshooting Tips If you experience problems with any of your FiOS services, the following checklist could save you a call to the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center. It will also help us get to the root of the problem faster when you do call. Power: 1. Check to see if you are experiencing a power outage. 2. If there is no power outage, check to see if your OPSU is plugged into an electrical outlet and that the indicator light is illuminated. 3. If the indicator light is not illuminated and the outlet is a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), make sure it hasn’t been tripped. If it has, press the reset button. 4. Check the fuse or circuit breaker to make sure your outlet is working. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse if necessary. 5. After taking these steps, recheck the indicator light on the OPSU to see if it is illuminated. If it is, recheck for service. Battery: If you are experiencing a power outage, please review the following: 1. If the Battery indicator light is dark and the System indicator light is yellow, check your battery connection inside the BBU.

10

2. If the battery is properly connected and the Replace Battery indicator light is red, replace the battery in your BBU, as it is fully discharged. 3. After taking these steps, recheck the BBU indicator lights. If the battery lights are not in normal status, call the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center for assistance at 1-888-553-1555. Voice Service Test: If you are still having problems with your voice service, it could be your inside wiring. To find out, take a corded wire-line telephone and a slotted-tip screwdriver to your ONT. Then, open your ONT and remove the wire from the phone jack corresponding to the line in question. Plug your telephone into that phone jack and listen for a dial tone. (If you have only one phone line, plug your phone into jack #1.) If you hear a dial tone, then the problem may be with your inside wiring. Please contact the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center for assistance. (Charges may apply for the repair of inside wiring.) If you do not hear a dial tone while at the ONT, you will need to contact the Fiber Solutions Center at 1-888-553-1555. Your technician may ask you to describe the indicator lights inside your ONT in order to diagnose the problem. See the illustration on the following page for an explanation of some of the indicator lights.

Please note: If you do not have voice service with Verizon, you will not be able to perform the Voice Service Test.

11

Here’s a quick guide for reading your ONT Indicator Lights:

Green light: The battery is connected and the voltage level is adequate. No light: The ONT is not operating from the battery or the battery is depleted. Red light: The ONT has detected a hardware failure. Blinking light: The ONT is not synchronized with the Central Office. No light: The ONT is fully operational and connected to the Central Office. Green light: The ethernet port is transmitting data. No light: No activity or the ethernet port is disabled.

Green light: The main AC power is available. No light: There is no power at the ONT. No light: Adequate video signal or video port is enabled. Red light: The video signal is below the adequate voltage level.

Green light: At least one telephone is in an off-hook condition. Blinking light: At least one telephone has been in an off-hook condition for over an hour. No light: All telephones are in an on-hook condition.

Power for services provided on the Verizon FiOS network must be supplied by the customer. Customer is responsible for backup battery replacement. Backup battery does not supply power for Internet or video services. Certain telephones, answering machines and other telephone equipment not meeting industry standards may not work with service provided on the Verizon FiOS network.

Using Your Remote Control Your new remote can control up to four devices. To select the device you’d like it to control, simply press one of the device keys (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR or CABLE) at the top of your remote. Then follow programming instructions below.

Programming Device Control Each of the additional device keys controls a particular type of device. For example, the DVD/VCR key controls your VCR, DVR or DVD player, but not your TV, unless you specify otherwise. ( See Reassigning Device Keys on page 20.) To specify a device: 1. Look up the device you want to control in the device code list included in this

Guide (see pages 22–27). 2. Press and hold a device key (AUDIO, DVD/VCR or TV) for at least six

seconds. The LEDs for each device key light up momentarily and the LED for the device you selected remains on. 3. Enter the four-digit code. The device key LED turns off briefly after each key press. NOTE: You have 10 seconds to press each digit. If you take longer than that, the remote “times out” and you must begin again. 4. If the remote recognizes the code, the device key’s LED blinks three times.

You can now test the remote by pressing POWER. If your device responds (i.e., turns off), you have found the right code. If your device does not respond, repeat steps 2 and 3 with the next code on the list. If the remote does not recognize the code, the LED will turn off. Retry the code (by repeating steps 2 and 3 using the next code listed for your brand) or search for a new device code. (See Searching for Codes below.) This Device Key

Searching for Codes If none of the codes listed in this guide match your device, you can search for a set of commands that will work. 1. Press and hold a device key (AUDIO, DVD/VCR or TV) for at least six

seconds. The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the device you selected remains on. 2. Press a function key (such as Power or Mute). The following function keys

are valid for searching (POWER is recommended): • POWER • MUTE • PLAY • CH+ • STOP

The device key’s LED blinks three times, then turns off. 18

3. Press

. The remote will send the command for the function you pressed in step 2.

4. If the device performed the function you pressed, press OK. The remote will now

control the device you selected in step 1. If the device did not perform the function you pressed, repeat step 3. Press to retry the previous code.

Checking Codes 1. Press and hold a device key (AUDIO, DVD/VCR or TV) for at least six seconds. The LED

for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the device you selected remains on. 2. Enter 9-9-0 to tell the remote you are verifying the device code. The LED blinks twice. 3. Press 1, then count the number of times the LED blinks and write down the

number. (If the LED does not blink, the number is 0.) This is the first digit of the device code. Press 2, 3 and 4 to obtain all four digits of the device code. Tip: Write down the code that worked, in case you must re-code your remote. DVD/VCR

AUDIO

Changing Volume Lock Locking the volume controls to a single device makes it easier to control volume without having to guess whether the volume will change. If you lock the remote’s volume controls to the TV (for example), you will always be able to change the volume to the level you want, without having to adjust it on multiple devices. 1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR or CABLE) for six seconds.

The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the selected device remains on. 2. Press Volume + (up).

The device key’s LED blinks three times, indicating it has locked the volume control to the device you selected. The AUDIO device key always controls its own volume, regardless of which device is locked to volume control. NOTE: If you reassign AUDIO to another device, such as a second TV, the second TV will always control its own volume.

Unlocking Volume Control 1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR or CABLE) corresponding to

the device currently locked to the volume control for at least six seconds. The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the selected device remains on. 2. Press Volume – (down).

The device key’s LED blinks three times, indicating it has unlocked the volume control for all devices. 19

Reassigning Device Keys Each device key accesses a specific type of device (for example, the DVD/VCR key can only be programmed to control a DVD player, VCR, DVR or HTS). This makes it easier to search for a code if your device’s code does not appear on the list provided. Your new remote allows you to change the type of device that may be assigned to a device key. That way, if you have two TVs, for example, you can control them both by changing the type of device the DVD/VCR or AUDIO key controls. 1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR) that corresponds to the

device you want the reassigned key to control (for example, TV) for six seconds. The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the selected device remains on. 2. Enter 9-9-2. 3. Press the device key you want to reassign (for example, AUDIO). That key’s

LED blinks three times and turns off, indicating that it has been reassigned. The reassigned key automatically uses the same device code as the key you selected in step 1. If your second device uses a different code, you may program it for the new code. (See Programming Device Control.) NOTE: You may not reassign the CABLE device key to another type of device.

Assigning a key back to its original device type: 1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR) you want to reset to its

original type (for example, AUDIO) for at least six seconds. The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the device you selected remains on. 2. Enter 9-9-2. The device key LED blinks three times and turns off. 3. Press the device key you selected in step 1 again. The LED blinks three times

and turns off. 4. Program the restored key to control a device. (See Programming

Device Control.)

Installing Batteries Your remote requires two AAA batteries. The first set of batteries is included and should last up to six months under normal usage. 1. Remove the battery case cover and the old batteries (if necessary). 2. Follow the diagram inside the battery case to insert the new batteries. NOTE: You have 10 minutes to replace the batteries before the remote loses memory.

Operating Range Your remote controls devices from up to 50 ft. (15 m) away if you are directly in front of the device or from up to 20 ft. (6 m) away if you are off to either side.

20

Troubleshooting If you have trouble with your remote, try the following steps, in order: My remote is not responding. 1. Review the information in Using Your Remote Control to make sure that the

key you pressed is active for the device you are controlling. 2. Make sure you are controlling the device you think you are. (See Using Your

Remote Control for more information on choosing a device control.) 3. Make sure your batteries are good. If battery power is low, your remote enters

a Low Battery Condition to conserve battery power for retaining your settings. (See Installing Batteries for more information on changing the batteries.) 4. Reset all settings:

• Press and hold a device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR) for at least six seconds. The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the device you selected remains on. • Enter 9-8-1. • The LED blinks twice to indicate that your remote has returned to its factory settings. You will need to reset all device code settings. (See Programming Device Control.) Some features may require additional equipment at an additional cost. Your use of FiOS TV will require your acceptance of the Terms of Service, a copy of which will be given to you at the time of installation. The Verizon FiOS TV remote control does not have any user-serviceable parts. Opening the case, except for the battery cover, may cause permanent damage to your remote control.

Interactive Programming Guide

29

Introduction Prepare to unleash the full potential of FiOS TV. This next-generation TV service, with its Interactive Programming Guide (IPG), delivers more entertainment choices to your TV screen than ever before. Flip through your favorite channels with the click of a button. Or search by actor or title in a flash. But that’s just the beginning. With Verizon FiOS TV, you can enjoy advances in entertainment technology like High Definition TV (HDTV) and Digital Video Recording (DVR). FiOS TV is the latest technology. It’s exciting. And it’s easy to use. Just a few clicks of the remote are all it takes to get started. Keep this guide handy while watching TV. It contains an overview of the most important features of the FiOS TV IPG and remote control. Use your remote control to move quickly and easily through the IPG’s many features. Detailed descriptions of its functions are listed below. Or just remember these few simple rules: • To use the IPG, turn on the Set Top Box by pressing the CABLE button on the remote control. Then press the POWER button. • Press GUIDE to go directly to program listings. • The MENU button takes you to the Main Menu of the Verizon FiOS TV IPG. • Any on-screen item highlighted in green can be selected by pressing the OK button. • Use the four ARROW buttons to move the highlight to the right, left, up or down. Once the item you want is highlighted, press OK to select it. • Press EXIT at any time to exit the menu and return to watching TV.

Power turns the selected device on or off. CABLE activates the remote control of Set Top Box functions. CH changes to the next higher or lower channel. INFO displays a description of the show you are watching or have selected in the IPG. MENU accesses the IPG Main Menu when the Set Top Box is the selected device.

GUIDE displays program listings.

31

Main Menu The Main Menu is the first menu you’ll see when accessing your IPG. Once you press POWER on the remote to turn on the Set Top Box, press MENU for a broad overview of your entertainment choices. From here, you can access all the features and functions of the FiOS TV IPG. Just highlight the menu option you want and press OK.

Simply select ON DEMAND from the Main Menu (or choose Channel 900 from the TV Listings) to see the VOD titles that are currently available.

34

Help If you have questions on using Parental Controls, Video on Demand or any of the many features of the IPG, you can go to the Help Menu for answers. You’ll find detailed information and instructional videos to help you get the most out of FiOS TV.

High Definition Television (HDTV) Now you can enjoy the awesome picture quality of HDTV via Verizon FiOS TV (if you have an HD-ready TV and either the High Definition or DVR Set Top Box). Easily search the TV Listings for shows being offered in HDTV. They are identified by an HD symbol at the end of the program and can easily be found using the HDTV category in the Search Menu.

Digital Video Recorder (DVR) With the DVR Set Top Box from Verizon FiOS TV, you can record a favorite show — or an entire series — with just a couple of clicks on your remote. You can also use your remote to control live TV. That’s right: pause, rewind, then fast forward through the show you’re watching. 35

DVR (continued) The Verizon FiOS TV DVR has dual-tuner capability, so you can record two programs at the same time or watch one program while recording another. Record an upcoming show by finding it in the TV Listings, highlighting it, and then pressing the RECORD button on your remote control. Recording takes place automatically. Smart SERIES RECORDING lets you record every episode of your

favorite series automatically — even if they’re shown at different times and on different days. View shows you’ve recorded by pressing the LIST button on your remote and selecting a show for viewing. Or select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu. Not sure if you have the FiOS TV DVR? You’ll know that you do if RECORDED TV appears on the Main Menu. For a more complete

description of DVR features, please see pages 42–47.

Settings The Settings Menu allows you to: • Define your Favorite Channels, which can be easily accessed by pressing the FAV button on the remote. • Remove channels you don’t want to see in your channel lineup. • Choose a different language for the TV Listings text and for TV audio. • Receive messages from Verizon FiOS TV. 36

• Set up Parental Controls with a personalized PIN. • Review Pay Per View and Video on Demand purchases. • Change audio output characteristics. (See Quick Tips, pages 38–39.)

Parental Controls The FiOS TV IPG provides the ability to control and manage the programs and content that come into your home. With Parental Controls, it’s easy to: • Selectively block programming by channel, rating or category. • Selectively block Pay Per View and Video on Demand purchases. • Set up two different user-defined PINs (one for purchases and one to block programs.) • Hide adult programming from the TV Listings. When programs with a particular rating level are blocked, the IPG automatically blocks the higher ratings. Also, if you have the DVR STB, programs recorded with a PIN require the PIN to be entered in order to play back the recorded program.

37

Quick Tips: How do I... Access Video on Demand (VOD)? Video on Demand is programming that is available for you to watch anytime (and as many times as you like) within a set rental period. Simply select ON DEMAND from the Main Menu (or choose Channel 900 from the TV Listings) to see the VOD titles that are currently available. Select a program you want to watch and simply follow the on-screen instructions.

Purchase Pay Per View programs? Pay Per View allows you to see the latest hit events in just a couple of easy steps with your remote. Pay Per View programs are offered at specific showtimes, so if you want to see what’s playing, just select SEARCH from the Main Menu and then select PAY PER VIEW. Subscribers with DVR capability (see below) can automatically record a Pay Per View offering for viewing at a later, more convenient time.

Use the Digital Video Recorder (DVR)? If you have the DVR Set Top Box (STB) with your FiOS TV service, it’s a snap to record a TV show or even an entire series — without tapes. The programs are stored directly on your STB. You can rewind or pause live TV — making it TV on your time. With dual-tuner capability, you can even record two programs at the same time, or watch one live TV program while recording another. You’ll know that you have DVR capability if RECORDED TV appears on the Main Menu. For a more complete description of DVR features, please check out pages 42–47.

View a program in High Definition TV (HDTV)? More and more people are entering the new era of High Definition Television — and FiOS TV can be your gateway. If you have an HD-ready TV, and if you chose either the High Definition or DVR Set Top Box, then you’re ready to enjoy the incredible picture quality this new technology has to offer. Shows being offered in HDTV are identified in the TV Listings by the HD symbol at the end of the program description and can easily be found by selecting HDTV from SEARCH BY CATEGORY. You can also look at your channel lineup to see where you can find the specially designated high definition channels.

Block out material that’s not suitable for children? Many parents are concerned about the programming their children watch. Our Parental Controls feature lets you do something about it. Select SETTINGS from the Main Menu, and then select PARENTAL CONTROLS. From there, you’ll be able to block access to shows either by channel or by rating, and can choose to hide or show adult titles. You will be able to create a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to ensure that the controls you set won’t be changed without your approval. And, you can use the same PIN or create an additional one to block unauthorized Pay Per View and VOD purchases.

Set a Reminder? Find a show you want to watch in the future using the TV Listings, the Mini-Guide or any of the Search functions. Select the show and press OK. Then select SET REMINDER and press OK. The IPG will remind you with an on-screen message two minutes before the show begins. To cancel the Reminder, select CLEAR REMINDER and press OK. Shows for which Reminders have been set appear in the program listings with the symbol in front of their titles. Note: Since the FiOS TV DVR gives you the ability to schedule a program to record automatically, you won’t ever have to miss a show you want to watch. Just highlight a show you want to watch in the future and press RECORD on your remote control. You can then decide if you want to record the entire series, and whether to add padding at the beginning or end of the show.

Create and use a list of my Favorite Channels? To create your Favorite Channels list, press the FAV button on the remote. You’ll see a program listing made up of all available channels. Use the ARROW buttons to highlight each channel you want included on your list. Press OK to add a check mark next to it. Only the checked channels appear in the Favorites list.

Select one of my Favorite Channels? Press the FAV button on your remote. You’ll see a program listing made up of only your Favorite Channels. Choose a program to watch by scrolling with the and ARROW buttons and pressing OK.

Edit my Favorite Channels list? Press the FAV button on your remote. Choose MY FAVORITES and use the ARROW buttons to highlight each channel in turn. Then press OK to add (or delete) a check mark next to it. Only the checked channels appear in the Favorites list.

Digital Video Recorder

Digital Video Recording lets you control the show. Your FiOS TV Digital Video Recorder (DVR) represents an entirely new way to enjoy watching television. You can pause and rewind live TV — and even record one show while watching another. It puts you in control of your TV viewing schedule, enabling you to watch what you want, when you want. PLAY

Getting Started Using the Remote Control Your remote control has special buttons designed for managing all the features of the DVR. Use the remote control buttons (PLAY, STOP, PAUSE, RECORD, REW, FFWD) just as you would on a VCR, to control digital recording and playback of recorded programs and live TV. Several other buttons (REPLAY, LIST, LIVE TV) have exclusive DVR functions, which are described in this guide. Recording Capacity Your DVR is designed to record up to 120 hours of standard definition digital TV programming. Recording analog or High Definition TV (HDTV) programs will substantially reduce this capacity (due to the format of analog programming and the much larger amount of information in an HDTV broadcast stream).

42

Selecting an Item with the Remote Control In this guide, “Select” means to highlight an on-screen item by moving to it with the ARROW buttons and then pressing OK.

Recording TV Record a Show That’s Currently Playing Record the show you are watching by pressing RECORD on the remote. A red indicator appears in the upper right corner of the screen for a few seconds to let you know that recording has started. Since the DVR continuously stores in its memory the channel that you’re watching from the time you first tune it in, the portion of the show that you watched prior to pressing the RECORD button will also be recorded, up to the limit of the internal memory. (Program limits: Standard Definition = 70 minutes; High Definition = 18 minutes.) Schedule Recording of an Upcoming Show or Series Use the ARROW buttons to highlight the show you wish to record in the TV Listings. Or use SEARCH to find and select a show. Press RECORD on your remote. A red dot will appear after the show title in the listings. Shrek 2

If the show is part of a series, you can schedule recording of each episode of the entire series by pressing RECORD a second time. With our smart SERIES RECORDING feature, each show in the series will be automatically recorded, even if its time slot or length is changed by the broadcaster. Three red dots indicate SERIES RECORDING has been scheduled (pressing RECORD a third time will cancel the scheduled recording). Desperate Housewives

You can choose whether to record only first-run episodes, whether to add padding at the beginning or end of a show, or whether to permanently save a show. In addition, a SERIES PRIORITY feature lets you rank the series you want to record, so that the DVR automatically resolves schedule conflicts, before they occur. Review or Cancel Scheduled Recordings of Shows or Series Select RECORDED TV from the MENU. The list of shows scheduled to be recorded can be seen under the heading SCHEDULED. Or choose SERIES MANAGER and then SCHEDULED SERIES to see a list of series that are scheduled for recording. You will also see a reminder about how much recording capacity you have used. To cancel a scheduled recording, select the show or series to be cancelled. Select CANCEL RECORDING or CANCEL SERIES, depending on which you choose to cancel. Press EXIT on your remote to resume watching live TV. Play a Recorded Show Select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu. Highlight a program that you want to watch on the list of recorded programs, press the OK button and select PLAY. Pause/Rewind/Fast-Forward a Recorded Show Use the PAUSE, REW, FFWD, STOP and PLAY buttons on your remote to control playback of a recorded program, exactly as you would with a VCR. When you use any of these buttons, the Progress Bar (see Progress Bar on page 47) will always appear to show you exactly where you are in the program. Multiple speeds of fast-forward and rewind can be accessed by 44

pressing the REW or FFWD buttons more than once. Press once for 3x speed, twice for 15x, three times for 60x and four times for 300x. Keep or Delete a Recorded Show Select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu. Highlight a program that you want to delete from the list of DVR RECORDINGS and select ERASE RECORDING. Once the recording space becomes full, the DVR will automatically delete the oldest shows to make space for new recordings. To prevent the DVR from deleting a recording when it needs more space, select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu, choose a program that you want to keep and then select the SAVE UNTIL button. Record High Definition TV Shows Recording a show broadcast in HDTV is accomplished in the same way as recording a normal TV show (see Recording TV ). Note: Due to the larger amount of information in an HDTV broadcast, your DVR will hold fewer hours of HDTV programming. Record Pay Per View Programs A Pay Per View program can be recorded with the DVR for later viewing. Simply press the RECORD button on your remote when the Pay Per View program begins. You can also schedule future Pay Per View shows to be automatically recorded. Just choose the PURCHASE AND RECORD option when selecting a show. It will automatically be recorded and ready for you to watch when you want. Dual-tuner Feature Your Verizon FiOS TV Set Top Box is equipped with dual tuners, so you can: • Record two different shows at the same time, even while watching an earlier recorded show. • Record a show while watching a Video on Demand movie. • Record one show while watching a different live show. 45

Controlling Live TV with the DVR How the DVR Handles Live TV Whenever you tune in to a Verizon FiOS TV channel, the DVR instantly begins storing the show in its internal memory and will continue to do so until you tune to a different channel. At this point, it discards the previous channel’s show and begins storing the new one. This memory technology allows you to control live TV in the ways described below. Once the internal memory is full, it will progressively store the most recent portion of that channel’s show, discarding the oldest. Pause or Resume Live TV; Frame Advance Press PAUSE on your remote to freeze the TV show you’re watching. Pressing the PAUSE button repeatedly will advance the video one frame at a time. When you’re ready, press PLAY to resume the show where you left off. Rewind or Fast-Forward Live TV Press REW on your remote to rewind the show you’re watching to an earlier point in time. (The DVR continues to store the live broadcast in its memory.) You can only rewind as far back in time as when you first tuned in to this channel, up to the limit of the internal memory. Press PLAY to resume watching from the desired point in the show. Press FFWD to fast-forward a previously paused live TV show. Press PLAY to resume watching. Pressing REW or FFWD up to four times allows you to increase the speed at which you rewind or fast-forward a program. Press once for 3x speed, twice for 15x, three times for 60x and four times for 300x.

46

Pause Live TV Press PAUSE, then FFWD or REW for a slow-motion, fast-forward or rewind effect. Replay Live TV Press the REPLAY button on your remote for an instant replay of the last seven seconds of the show you’re watching, whether it’s live TV or a previously recorded show. Resume Watching Live TV If you’re watching a live program delayed by pausing or rewinding live TV, pressing the LIVE TV button jumps the show forward to the point currently being broadcast. The Progress Bar The Progress Bar (shown below) appears whenever you pause, rewind or fast-forward a live or recorded program. It shows how much of the current show is stored in memory (orange bar), as well as what point of the show you’re viewing now (white line) and how far behind the live broadcast you are (end of orange bar).
