MVP List #30 (March 17 -23, 2012)

The Verizon Community Forums Most Valuable Posting List is where we recognize great work and words happening every day right here on our community. We know the success as a community is based on the continual and lively contributions of our valued members. Each member provides special and unique contributions and this is the place we try to highlight members that have stood out during the previous week.
Thread of The Week:
The great news is that FiOS TV gives you a lot of channels to chose from. The bad news is that FiOS TV gives you a lot of channels to chose from- and that means a lot of time spent wading through channels you aren't interested in to find the ones you are. That is where selecting your Favorites comes in handy- but what happens when Favorites aren't working properly? Never fear- our users have it covered!
Post of the Week:
Congratulations- you have your new FiOS set top box and you can't wait to get it hooked up! Mattheww outlines clearly and easily how best to hook your new box to your TV here. 
Member of the Week:
Many thanks to Lasagna for his great response to how FiOS connections work in apartment buildings!

Hi prisaz
Unfortunately, a user's IP is considered personal information.  If they post a copy/paste, we are able to edit it out. However, when it's in an image, we have to remove the entire thing.  But when we message the user, we ask them to obscure their IP and to re-post the image.
Good reason, makes sense. But couldn't you edit the image (with an image editor) and cover up the IP address? I do that kind of thing all the time with images I post here to protect my privacy (although as you know I occasionally do screw that up ). Would save the confusion and need for the user to repost the image.

    If you're a parent of young kids, you can't help but know that Verizon FiOS has a new channel. That's right, Disney Jr. has arrived! If you're looking the channel, check out this thread for more info.
    Post of the Week:
    Huge thanks to Somegirl- one of our newest Community Leaders- for helping a new Verizon customer set up her Verizon email. It's always tricky figuring out a new system, but Somegirl's answer (with pictures!) got the job done.
    Member of the Week:
    Can I tell you all a little secret? I'm not a technical person- at all. My eyes glaze over the minute acronyms and tech talk are thrown around. That is why my favorite threads on the boards are those that give great answers in a clear, concise way. Hubrisnxs does just that here in a great thread about what to do when you think you're having a service outage.

    First thanks fo the kind words Heather and Armond. I really never thougt I would rate "MVP" status, after losing my job in IT support a few years back I have participated in a few forums but this one seems the most civil and informative. I have learned a lot over the years posting questions and reading real experts' posts (there are too many to mention) I am really happy to give back to this awesome community.
    If a forum member gives an answer you like, please give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem. Thanks !!!

    If you want a good example of our Community, check out this thread. A user is having some latency issues and while we don't have a solution yet, our forum members are working hard together to figure it out. This type of collaboration is what makes this community great!

    The Verizon Community Forums Most Valuable Posting List is where we recognize the great work that you all, our community, continue to do each week in these forums. Even if you’re not listed below, a huge THANK YOU to all of your contributions. If you are listed below, extra kudos to you… we really appreciate you! Until next week…
    Thread of the Week:
    This week’s thread of the week is “Email Security Settings Change.”
    Post of the Week:
    Thanks to GuardianHope for your post on the thread “Macbook keeps disconnecting from FiOS wifi.”
    Quote of the Week:
    "Quantum boxes locking up:"
    “There is a known software issue that a lot of people call a "memory leak". When the memory ram gets low it doesnt free what it should, stays low and you see a lag. Some have said this has improved with a recent patch, but others say they are still seeing it. One thing that helps for the time being until there is a 100% fix for it is rebooting the box  once a week or every few days all depending on how much you use the guide, dvr, etc... which frees up the memory.”  SinCara

    To be fair, my "All knowledge is worth having" life motto is borrowed from Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Legacy series. It's a terrific line, and I fell in love with it the first time I read it.

    What about Helpful Member of the Week? Takes out the "most" but keep the helpful. "You're all awesome, and here's an awesome person we'd like to recognize!"
    Just my two cents...

    Thread of the Week:
    Do you live and die by your DVR like I do? With two little kids at home, prime time viewing is often interrupted by cries for the bathroom, a drink or a back rub so I never get to watch TV shows when they actually air. That means that DVR space is at a premium and I don't have time for it to not work properly. That is why I picked a thread that discusses what to do when you delete a TV show from your DVR'd show list, but it still persists on your list. Special thanks to lacticacidtrip for help in this thread!
    Post of the Week:
    Our post of the week is supplied by Comet2011L4 and deals with various ways to get better speeds from your wireless connection. Laid out in a simple format, the suggestions are easy enough for even me to understand!
    Member of the Week:
    Our member of the week is tlb for this very helpful, very thorough series of posts about changing email settings in Eudora. tlb battled some issues getting used to working in the Forums, but persevered to supply some great information and help a lot of people as they transitioned their email settings. Thanks so much for all the help, tlb!
    By the way- the editing requirements are in place because we found a lot of newbies would come here, ask a question, receive some replies and then come back and change their original post- which made for a very frustrating experience for everyone! Thanks for your understanding!

    Thread of the Week:
    One of the great mysteries of the Internet is why you can easily access every web site in the world- except the one you really need to get to.  I never knew why that happened- all I knew was that it made me crazy.  That is- that's all I knew until I read through this thread. Thanks to all who helped explain the issue and solve it!
    Post of the Week:
    Do you have "friends" like I do who love to go into all your electronics and change the language settings so you have no idea what you're reading? No? Just me? Well-just in case you make friends like mine, Lordofring has a great explanation of how to change the language settings on your IMG guide back to English.
    Member of the Week:
    If you want to know the differences between some of the various Set Top Boxes (STBs) out there, Pkegney has a great little comparison of what you can except from different models and what you should look for. Many thanks, Pkegney- congrats on being our Member of the Week!

  • Upgraded to 10.6.1.7 as prompted and now cannot see any music purchased since March 23, 2012.  How can I get these back?

    Upgraded to 10.6.1.7 as prompted and now cannot see any music purchased since March 23, 2012.  How can I get these back?
    The error message says it cannot find the file but it exists as it was transferred to my ipod.
    Thanks.

    Ack! We don't need that much.
    What you posted looks like the iTunes Library.xml file  I will let you read about how iTunes works but not only is the .xml not your main library it is just the listing of tracks in your library and where the music files should be located.  Your music is actually in media files (by the way, it is pointless to zip those as they are already compressed).  Anyway, read these and you will see that your true library file (iTunes Library.itl) is only a small, but still important, part of a complete library.
    What are the iTunes library files? - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1660
    More on iTunes library files and what they do - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITunes#Media_management
    What are all those iTunes files? - http://www.macworld.com/article/139974/2009/04/itunes_files.html
    Where are my iTunes files located? - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1391
    As you can see, a library has several components, so "getting it back" depends upon what is missing, what it was you actually backed up in the end, if any of this music was purchased from the iTunes Store, etc.

  • Firefox crashes when I go to YouTube or try to download anything!!! Everything was fine until March 1, 2012. See details below.

    Beginning March 1, 2012, I would go to YouTube click on a video & within 3-4 seconds Firefox would crash. This has continued non-stop for a week now. Prior to March 1, 2012 I rarely had this problem, I was able to watch videos easily, for hours. I've also noticed that Firefox crashes when I try to download (any) files, again, I rarely had this problem prior to March 1, 2012. This has now happened dozens and dozens of times since March 1st. (Please help!!) Please: don't inform me I need to upgrade my software or hardware, I have no money, I cannot afford upgrading. Please fix this crash problem as soon as possable. sincerely C. Folk (PS: the crash ID: link below is the latest)

    Here is the crash report from the Crash ID you posted in "more system details", in case it gives you any clues:
    https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/e63e56eb-4343-4f9a-be1a-dc6852120308 Firefox 3.6.19 Crash Report [@ [email protected] ]
    I was going to suggest checking to make sure that QuickTime isn't set to handle Flash Media in the QuickTime System Preferences if you have an old version of QuickTime (previous to 7.3) Ref:
    *https://discussions.apple.com/message/5579981#5579981
    *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#QuickTime_plugin_takes_over_Flash
    .... but that doesn't account for the crashes while downloading or why the problem began March 1 . Do you remember adding, removing, or updating any software around that time?

  • I got my ipod touch (4th generation) on March 20,2012, and it fell out of my pocket and cracked the screen. I would like to know how much it costs to get it repaired and how much insurance costs. Thank you for your time.

    I got my ipod touch (4th generation) on March 20, 2012, and it fell out of my pocket when I jumped. Unfortunantly, the screen cracked very badly, and it has become a hazard, not only for the many cuts I have gotton on my fingers from the ipod screen's broken glass, but for what I type (because the screen is cracked so badly, I cannot see what I am doing). The ipod has become pointless to own in its condition. I would like to know how much the repair would be, where the best place to get it done is located, and how much future insurance would cost in the United States. Thank you for you time.

    See "Repair Pricing."
    No clue where you can purchase insurance but it's probably not worth the price.

  • My Apple iPad 3 is less than 6 months old - purchased in March of 2012.  I believe it already needs a new battery.  It will not hold a charge for very long andvs very slow in starting up a carge when I plug it in.  Please advise - it is very annoying.n.

    Take it to Apple Store. You are covered under your 1 year warranty.

  • I need a printout of my browser history for march 23, 2012. I need a certified printout from Mozilla showing the sites that I visited for that particular day.

    Specifically, I need info from March 23, 2012 between the time of 7:30 and 2pm. I need it ASAP.

    You can do save a screenshot of the history manager window with that history on display and print hat out.
