        • Google Icons

          On my Nexus I have a shortcut for "My Fiber" page and the Icon for the shortcut is the same Icon as the Icon for the Fiber App. One of them should be changed to eliminate confusion.

            • Telnet/ssh support for the Network Box

              I would like to be able to telnet/ssh into the Google Fiber Network Box. This would allow us to modify arp entries and the iptable. Specifically, I would like to be able to use WoL over the internet. This requires sending a signal to the broadcast IP. I would like to add a broadcast IP to my arplist.

                  • 5.1 surround on OnDemand channels

                    I have noticed that the on Demand channel's are not in 5.1 surround sound. Would be nice to have.

                    • Auto-switch to Live tv after watching a recording

                      Switch back to live TV after watching an on demand show or a recorded show. Could work off a timer so that when you are done watching the recorded show after a couple minutes it switches back to the last live TV channel you were watching.

                          • Allow user to extend lease time on router shop server. Renewing every 24 hrs for each device is not needed.

                            Allow user to extend lease time for IP address issued by dhcp server on router. Renewing every 24 hrs can cause device to have to reconnect. Using the " reserve IP address " feature does help, but this option is not available for TV Boxes. Need to be able to reserve IP address for TV boxes as well. Their lease expires every 24 hrs as well and can cause them to have to reconnect as well.

                                  Ability to rewind and fast forward while TV is paused. Right now you have to hit Play then RW/FF it would be nice to just be able to hit RW/FF while the TV is paused.

                                    Synchronized play on all TV Boxes - kind of like "party mode" on Sonos where you can select to view any recording or live show on all TVs in sync.

                                      • Use Collected Data for Personalized Content

                                        I understand that Google Fiber collects data for advertising already. Could you extend this to create smart guides so I don't have to create guides myself. Also, suggest to record shows based on my interest. Also, I would like search to be influenced based on my viewing habits.
