Verizon FiOS DVR Manager comes to Windows Marketplace

If you're lucky enough to have access to Verizon's pure fiber-optic FiOS cable/internet, then you'll want to go to Windows Marketplace and check out their DVR manager.

In an effort to basically kill off TiVO, the cable companies have been rolling out their own digital video recorder (DVR) services. This freeware app basically lets you access and program your DVR remotely via your WinMo phone. A friend tells you about a show you have to watch? Fire up this bad boy, log in and set your DVR to record it.

Having used Verizon's FiOS for a few years (even played with the DVR two years ago), we like their offerings a lot and its nice to see them give some Windows Mobile love.

  • Apparently only works for Verizon wireless customers.
  • Not true. I a FiOS DVR and a TP2 on Sprint and got mine working yesterday with no problem.
  • FiOS...they are cabling my neighborhood as we speak! Cannot wait to call can CANCEL crapcast!
  • Couldn't even find it on my stock Sprint Diamond and when I logged in on the computer I couldn't find it by a search and the link said the phone on the account didn't meet the system requirements, so maybe it doesn't like 6.1.
  • I think I read somewhere that AT&T U-Verse was planning the same thing with Windows Phone and their DVR service, too.
  • This is just a newer version available on Marketplace. Only difference, it actually works with my HD2 on T-Mobile. Old version kept telling me it could not find my phone registerd on the STB
