Thanks, me too. I had looked the other day but since it said it was for the DROID only, I didn't bother to download.

Right now, when you run it, it says:

"Application is not supported on your device. It is currently supported on Motorola Droid."

Here's hoping that they actually get it out by the end of next week!

Weird, the app's been working for me since the night I took the phone out of the box. Just checked - still works; my DVR is 65% full!

Works for me as well. I didn't realize it wasn't a generic Android app.

You're talking about the wrong app.

There are two FIOS apps. One is the remote DVR app that allows you to program the DVR, view the TV listings etc.

The other allows you to use your Droid like the cable box remote.

The "FIOS Mobile" app that I downloaded from the Marketplace (controls the DVR functions) works great for me on my Incredible.

Now if Verizon would add the ability to watch DVR recordings on my phone, that would truly be INCREDIBLE. Who needs a Slingbox if Verizon provided this capability. I have a Slingbox and have been waiting patiently for a Slingplayer version for Android. Sling Media says it's coming soon. A little competition can't hurt. Come on Verizon..step up to the plate and add this capability (if even on wifi only). If Verizon does that, they have a FIOS/Wireless customer for life!

It isn't working yet. Apparently they're working on a fix.

The pure remote app updated today works great on my Inc! Semi-complex setup that requires WIFI hookup. Neat phone picture to TV transfer function. What I don't know is if the WIFI hookup must be my local network or if I can use any WIFI net. Will test that next.

The remote DVR app is still a "no go"...times out every time. TV listings only..and slow at that!

Finally it works. I won't use the phone as a replacement for the remote but it's nice to know its there. Plus showing photos from my phone is cool too.

I downloaded the "FIOS Mobile Remote" application from the Marketplace today. If you a Verizon customer, the app was not located in the "Verizon" are of the marketplace. Just search for "FIOS Mobile Remote" and you will find it. The app synopsis says it is now compatible with Droid Incredible. This is a relatively large app ~8MB. It worked the first time for me. Took a little effort to setup my FIOS DVR to allow remote connections but one that was done it has worked flawlessly. The ability to display pictures from your phone on your TV is pretty cool. The remote actually works a lot faster than my Verizon-supplier infrared remote control that came with the DVR.

Both work just fine for me. Remote DVR is great because it works anywhere. But the Remote control app requires wifi - you must be on the network where the STBs are.

Works well with my Incredible...just wish the volume +/- worked for the TV, it only raises or lowers the volume output on the STB.

does anyone have a 2nd wifi router in front of the verizon wifi router? the vzw router doesn't provide a strong enough signal, so i have a netgear g router in front of it as my wireless ap. i think because of that, it's not working on my incredible.

if not, then i have another problem..

The Verizon router is required to be the active router on your network. Maybe set them both up and have the VZW one as a different SSID exclusively for your phone?

Sorry, I'm not getting it. What is this and do you have to have a FiOS DVR box, or is that just an OS? I have a Comcast HD DVR... is this good?

This is actually a pretty good App. Once you set it up on whatever box you want it, when you turn on the app, the box recognizes it and it works.

I don't know why, but for some reason it won't let me upload the pictures from my phone. It says none found. I even tried taking a pic and doing it, still nothing. Does this app not read internal memory or something?

You don't need to use the Verizon Router as your WiFi access point though. I have my Verizon router as the main router in the house but a Linksys N router as the wifi access point and it works fine.

that's exactly the same setup i have (except replace linksys n with netgear g). cable outlet -> verizon router (wifi off) -> netgear g (wifi on) and it said that it could not find the device. in fact, the set up box never showed up on my screen.

is it because the tv i was trying it on was not a dvr set top box, but just a regular set top box?

No. The first time I tried it I was in my bedroom on a regular HD box. My DVR is in my livingroom.

sorry to bump this - but mine doesnt work anymore because my X refuses to connect to the Fios router - if I can figure out how to forward the ports from my dlink router TO the fios router (or even the STB directly) then i think id be in business - looks like the STB is listening on udp 4538. anyone know how to do that? (typical port forwarding send the data from the outside to internal connections, i want to do the opposite)

Did you just try unplugging your fios STB? When I first installed the app I couldnt get it to work. Rebooted the STB and havent had any problems. Maybe the STB lost its IP address with the router and was assigned a new one.

Turn the dlink into a switch and you won't have to worry about port forwarding.

I use two routers in a setup similar to corporate DMZs. The Verizon router's (R1) external interface connects to the internet and the internal interface to a couple of services I want to reach from on the road (such as FTP). The internal interface also connects to the external interface of my second router (R2) which then connects to my switch for the secured home network. I don't want to make the second router a switch (or remove it), as this would affect the security of my home network negatively.

As others have noted, I can't reach the STB from a phone connected to the home network. I don't think there's a problem to connect from the app to port 4538 on the Verizon router, as this is an outgoing connection from R2 and should be considered home network for R1 - none of the two should block it, as it is not an external connection coming in for either of them.

I assume there's either an additional layer of security on the STB (e.g. it only accepts IPs from the same subnet) or the STB is trying to open a communication port with the app, which would then be blocked by R2 as external. The STB seems to usually get the IP 192.168.1.100, has anyone sniffed traffic between the STB and the app to see all ports? Any other ideas?
