Thank you for posting this, do you know if these u-verse receivers have to be connected to a phone line (like dish network does, or they will charge you $5 per month) of if people should be running a cat 5 cable to these for future upgrades? Or do you think they are just there?

I just started seeing these in my area and I want to have my bases covered.

The best thing you can do to prep your house for Uverse service is to place a CAT5e cable (home run - no splitting) from a central location (such as the garage) to each computer or television. Att's incoming line will connect to a router @ the garage which will then distribute the signal to each of the CAT5e cables. If you do this yourself before hand you will have a much easier install (techs like to reuse old coax which can lead to problems). Even if you don't know how to make connectors for the ends, place the cables and the tech can terminate them.

FYI - a box of high quality Cat5e or CAT6 cable can cost upwards of $200, buy the best you can afford for a high speed trouble-free network.

While you are at it you should run a cable from the central location to the telephone service box area.

I have a two U-Verse systems (1200 / 1216) in my house. I noticed there are composite, Cat 5 and USB ports on the back. Is there an easy way to grab a TV show from the DVR and push it to an IPOD or computer for playing?

Is there a tech spec for the 1216?

The only thing I came up with was taking the video out to another DVR that will allow me to press DVDs or to a capture card.

Are there any other solutions? Downloading it to a USB Flash or being able to access the 1216 over TCP/IP for a download?

Thanks.

I have a U-verse system, and I would like to know how do I connect my video server to the U-verse STB so I can watch my stored movies over the network? My server is Samba and I want to place my server in the same room as the primary STB. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

That's not a possibility with the U-verse STB. It would be a great option though.

I'd recommend getting one of these: ASUS O!Play - TV HD Media Player (http://www.highdefinitionblog.com/?page_id=466) Mine was about $100 and does a great job.

You cant do it through uverse at this point. I use my PS3 to watch my stored movies. But mine are on a windows7 ultimate box which the ps3 can view shared media on.

Thanks for the response. It's too bad AT&T did not include this feature in the box. Most likely, it is just a software upgrade. I had DirecTV before changing over to U-Verse and they made a software change and then I could hook up a larger hard drive and bypass the smaller drive that was built into the receiver. What I did was take the HDMI output of my server and connected it to one of the HDMI ports on the back of my TV and then configured that port as a video source, using the TV as the display to select the the movie or home video I wanted to watch. I have a Cisco Linksys wireless-N Gaming and Video Adapter Model WET610N and I was hoping I could connect it to the RJ45 connector and use the server as for selecting movies on both of my TVs. Hopefully, AT&T will make an upgrade to allow this. Thanks again for the suggestion.

Does anyone know how to reset the pin on a Uverse Cisco receiver. I can't access the manual posted in this forum.

I do that a lot especially when I'm watching on a STB so I can time shift. Just hit record then play the recording.

so there is no way to prevent the channel from changing when you accidentally hit a number of the remote? some settings require you to hit enter.

thanks,

I don't think so. Have you tried using the record function?

I guess I don't understand. If you are surfing, how do you accidentally go to another channel and lose the buffer? Your original question was:
is there a way to prevent auto submit when entering a channel number? i hate when im time shifting a channel, and i hit a number on the remote; it changes the channel and i've lost my show in bufferSeems like the record function would take care of that.

Just to be clear if I'm recording a program that I'm watching, the buffer for the program is the recording. If then I go to another channel either by number or surfing, then the buffer for the program I was recording is still there. If I play the recording to time shift then when I go surfing the pointer to the place in the program is maintained. All I have to do to get back where I was in the recording time shifted is to play the recording again or enter channel 9999. Seems to do just what you want even if I went surfing.

Good info, Rbinck. I was somewhat disappointed when I found out the STBs didn't support live playback/pause. It wasn't a question I thought to ask and AT&T didn't volunteer it up. :) I was wondering if I would have to get a 2nd DVR for this but maybe I can train the family to use the recording feature as you've suggested it. Thanks

One dvr with uverse because of Total Home DVR. The best thing is to record any show that you would want to pause.

Remember your stream limitations though!

I am not sure if this will help, or maybe I am misunderstanding your issue. If I accidentally hit a number and I don't want the channel to change, I hit the delete button at the bottom left. The channel will not change when there are no numbers on the screen.
